cfrancis (2249) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2011
Handbottle from the brewery. Pours a dark brown almost black with a big frothy beige head. Lot’s of carbonation. Aroma of roasted malts, vanilla and dark chocolates. Taste is a bit fizzy, roasted malts, chocolate and some vanilla. Nice beer!

HopTsing (403) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JUN 9, 2013
From the bottle poured a brown brew with a light white head. Aroma and flavors of malt and hops leaning more towards the malt.

AwaKe (48) - Laval, CANADA - SEP 8, 2013
En fût à l’Oktoberfest des Québécois 2013. Couleur brun foncé, légère mousse brune. Odeur et goût dominé par le chocolat et les noix. Juste assez d’amertume, semblable à un café moka. Onctuosité intéressante. Bon produit.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - AUG 3, 2008
Sample at the 2008 VT Brewers Fest - Poured a very dark brown/black in color with a small tan head. Small lacing on the glass. Aroma was heavy with roasted malts and dark fruit. Flavor was roasty with lots of fruitiness. Slightly sour and astringent at the end. Good beer, not a great one...

MJGG (945) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 9, 2008
Verre de 4 oz, d’un fût à la brasserie. Arômes de torréfaction et d’alcool. Robe noire, légèrement translucide, peu de mousse. Plutôt mince et douce en entrée de bouche, la torréfaction se manifeste en arrière-goût et est accompagnée par l’acool. Ce dernier est relativement apparent.

Lanchester (182) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 9, 2009
On tap at Vices et Versa in a 12 oz tulip glass. Jet black in color with a thin ring of tan head. Has an aroma of coffee with chocolate and a touch of smokiness. The beer is quite thin-bodied yet smooth on the palate, notes of earthiness and bitter chocolate prevail. Finishes dry but leaves a refreshing impression on account of the light texture. I can’t say I was blown away by it, although it is a very nicely brewed beer and my first introduction to the style.

presario (4580) - 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.

PhillyCraft (3071) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Sample from bill at Prohibition Pig, dark pour with creamy head. Notes are a little thin compared to the bourbon barrel version I had a month ago but not bad. Notes of smoke, roasty malt or grain, dark fruit, sweet figs, and some rust in the finish. Not bad.

Lukaduke (1997) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Draft at Pro Pig. Pours a deep brown umber color with a finger of khaki foam. Lots of roasty malts and burnt chocolate. Sweet molasses, caramel, fig and a pretty thin body. Decent but nothing to special.

solidfunk (3586) - 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.
