750 ml bottle via trade with hopdog and shared with Bockyhorsey - Pours a dark brown color with a one finger thick light tan head that lasts. Very light lacing. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malt, and light vanilla. Flavor is much of the same with a light bitterness. Medium body. Smooth palate. The beer losts it’s fizz toward the end, but was a very nice beer. Thanks Steve.

hopscotch (8776) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 2, 2008
Bottle… DLD’08… Murky brown beer with a small, creamy, off-white head. Malty aroma offers notes of sweet chocolate, caramel and coffee. Full-bodied and creamy with modest carbonation. Chocolate and caramel sweetness… mocha too. Finishes mostly sweet and lightly bitter.

West Chester. Dark black/brown pour with minimal tan head and aroma of chocoff, roast malt, some molasses. Tastes roasty malty, with some chocolate syrup, coffee, and hops in the finish.

I know that Porter is just a cousin to a stout, but I find the stouts so much more intense and complex. Dark brownto black, nose of dark malts and chocolate. Taste of dark malts and chocolate, some sourness, some bitterness. But there are much more interesting Baltic Porters or their cousins Imperial Russian Stouts.

On tap at West Chester location. Nice dark beer with thin mocha head. Roasted coffee flavors in the nose with a delicate floral hop. Creamy tasting beer with a nice, medium amount of roasted flavor to round it off. Minor toffee notes but flavor is a little weak. Slightly more carbonated than I would like. One of the best beers Iron Hill produces.

desurfer (1209) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAR 11, 2005
West Chester. Pours a pitch black with a small, foamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malts and coffee. Flavor is mostly bitter chocolate with some roasty notes. Like a porter, except the palate is much smoother and lighter. Matched perfectly with the Double Chocolate Hill cake.

This black medium bodied Baltic porter had a strong chocolate malt complimented by vanilla and a slight roasted flavor. It has the classic Baltic Porter strong malt flavor.

West Chester branch. On cask. Black pour, with a thin tan head. Mostly bitter chocolate; nice light palate. I’m really starting to enjoy Baltic porters.

afireinside96 (923) - Mountville, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2009
On tap at the Lancaster location. Poured a clear very dark brown with a thin khaki head. Smelled of cocoa, pit fruit, and coffee. The flavor was very doppelbock-esque. Lots of raisin, fig, and prune, with a touch of coffee. It felt dead and flimsy in my mouth. Just sitting there boring me to death. Thin bodied with a palate that doesn’t lean toward sweet or bitter. There were no real flaws but nothing about it made me want to finish my glass and order another one either.
