Tap at Blue Monk. Exceptional. Aromas of grass, chocolate, and dark fruit. Taste has a sweet start, with bitterness taking over. Palate is syrupy, and full bodied. Dark brown, with short-lived head.

Finish is alcohol warmth, a dash of salt. Lingering sweet chocolate. Thick body, soft mouthfeel, weak carbonation. Solid.

Quevillon (2548) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 20, 2007
Bu en fut à Vices et Versa (12 oz). Brune cola foncée, petit collet avec de la denteille beige. Arome de café malté avec des notes de cassonade et un peu de cacao. Goût cochon de malte choco-cafiné, quelque fruits rouges mures et un peu sucré.

Un cocktail savoureux et riche d’espresso, mélasse, coco, fudge et caramel dans un corps onctueux et légèrement carbonaté.

JoeMcPhee (8551) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2009
Tap at Vices et Versa. Deep brown black beer with a bit of ruddy/ruby highlights. The aroma is surprisingly clean. Light molasses and a soft dried plumminess in the nose. Very plummy and toasty, but it doesn’t have much roasted character at all. As it warms, it really opens up. Loads of clean, well-lagered dark sweetness. Some treacle and a bit of fudgey chocolate character. Very, very clean palate. Light lingering roast. Very complex with a nice mix of figs and dark malts and a clean finish. One of the better Baltic Porter’s I’ve had in quite some time.

mds (2240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 17, 2007
Draught. Very dark brown with a small brown ring of head. Solid aroma - oaky, smoke, raisin sugars, and plum. Medium body that has a good dose of sweetness but is never overwhelming. There’s some toffee and roast fluffiness and finishes with a nice malt bitterness. Very good.
Sampled at Mondial on June 1, 2007.

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.

LadySusan (720) - Ste-Therese, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 18, 2007
On tap at Oktoberfest in Mascouche.The color is a very dark brown with a thick beige head. The taste and aroma is of malt and fruits. There is also a fineshing taste of sweet toffee that leaves a nice aftertaste.

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!

Diogène (1066) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 24, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2009 On tap at the brewery. Pitch black with a medium mocha creamy head with good retention. aroma is deep chocolate, cream, roasted malt and some herbal hops. Flavor is a little sweeter than expected with chocolate, cream, roasted malt, herbal hops and a bitter finish. Full body. A very good Baltic porter. .
