Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 3, 2010
Draft. Pours a dark malty bruin body with a tan head. Malty dry with a nutty and roast y smoked tone. Dry wood and hint of coal. A drying smoky porter with a nice warming. Good.

Draft at Ginger Man NYC with Streets, Andrew and Brendan. Pours a dark brown body with thin lacing. Aroma is slightly smoky. Mouthfeel is smooth with sweet notes of oak. Great Porter

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 18, 2008
Bottle at Volo. Opaque black with nice head. Some cherry pit and clean metals in the complex nose. Soft, low carbonation. Smooth. Licorice, soya, resin, balsamic, sour cherry. Gorgeous!

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 8, 2010
Tap at Mondial 2010. Pours a deep dark woody slight hazed brown with a decent lasting head. Aroma is very sweet, brown sugar, caramel malts, molasses, toasty nutty chocolate, spices, herbs and earthy notes with maple sugar. Flavor is maple, earth, big toast and leather with nutty dark chocolate, oily hints, tobacco leaf, sharp caramelized buttery toffee, tons of licorice and anise seed spice- moderately clean in the end though.

Boutip (4726) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2011
Bottle: Poured a deep black color ale with nice light brown foamy head with good retention and some very good lacing. Aroma of rich black chocolate with light residual sugar notes. Taste is also a great mix between some rich black chocolate with light roasted notes. Body is bit thin for style with great carbonation with no apparent alcohol. Very well brewed with great drinkability factor.

presario (4626) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 12, 2011
Bottle. Dark but thin enough to not look heavy or thick. Light alcohol and soaking licorice root and earth scent. Thin light brown head. Body seems thin for a Baltic Porter. Has a noticeable bit of booze that mixes with the chocolate and coffee with hints of molasses and licorice. Has more of a dark spirit flavour than beer. Could have been aged in barrels but was not.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 19, 2009
Strong fruity and chocolate aroma. Opaque black body is topped by a very weak and large bubbled head. Plenty of roasted malts with a sour cherry undertone that works with the bittersweet chocolate character. Medium full body with very low carbonation. I don’t think this bottle is at it’s best... Tulip glass. Cellar temperature. Bottle purchased at the brewery in July 2008.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 1, 2007
Sampled draught at the Mondial, Montreal (May 2007). Opaque with a nice bit of lasting head, utterly black....aroma is at first dominated by plump dark grapes and prunes, but soon lovely roasty malts show up, and chocolate-covered cherries sweeten things up later....the body follows quite as you would expect, very fruity and chocolaty, blueberries bursting through chocolate frosting and light whispers of cherry sauce swirling around....little bitterness to go with the light roastiness until the very finish, when a faint burnt note arrives....low carbonation, could be fuller in the mouth. Still very, very solid.

czar (4371) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 5, 2010
Sweet dark fruits, a bit too sweet to my taste. Medium to heavy body. Bottle kept on foaming forever. Anyhow, microcarbonation, toffee, a bunch of flavours. Ho.st rocks.

solidfunk (4008) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 6, 2013
A little syrupy. Not exactly what I like in a Baltic Porter. Pours dark clear brown with a little initial lacing and head. Finishes a little sweet. Taste is generally sweet, with some light roast malt here. Tap at brewpub on Montreal opening.
