Black with decent, creamy, brown head / Medium to full body, a little thin, chewy with some acidity, and with good balance and finish / Inky flavors of tobacco, molasses, dark roast coffee, smoke, and prune / Seems like a solid example of the style.

Tar black. Medium head, colored like pepparkaksdeg. Smooth mouthfeel. Smoky dominance. Hops and herbs, prunes and licorice root, syrup and bitter chocolate. Somewhat acidy, but not too much. Sweet.

HonusWagner (1323) - Florida, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Kind of a boring, straightforward take on the style, roasty and more stoutlike in flavor than most Baltic Porters I’ve had, but with the body that is typical of the style. Tasty and certainly worth the 3 bucks I spent, but not nearly as delicious as the peak beers in the style.

elloboksi (6) - FINLAND - JUN 15, 2014 does not count
Pullosta tuoppiin kaataessa näyttää kuin pahasti karstoittunutta, mutta kermaista öljyä kaataisi. Tuoksu on sopivan kutsuva ja antaa pientä esivivahdetta vahvasta mausta. Maku ja jälkimaku ovat paksut ja aromikkaat. Tykkään.

Pour out of bottle, dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of caramel, roast, ashy, coffee notes, hints of dark cocoa, slight yeast, touch of grain. Taste is a mix of some slight roast, cardboard, ashy, cardboard, slight yeast, finishing fairly bitter, slightly sweet.

DocJitsu (826) - Florida, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Pours a very dark brown with a short-lived, but mocha colored head. Very pungent smoky olive nose. Not quite as thick as expected, but smooth. Fruity, chocolate covered raisins, and prunes. Prune gets progressively bitter at the finish.

Purchased at Binny’s in Chicago, IL; enjoyed after my first visit to the nordic countries. I couldn’t find this Finnish brew when I was in Sweden, but sure enough they have it in Chicago, hence I bought it. Appearance is a thick pitch black with a light tan head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of chocolate malt, light molasses, light cough syrup. Taste goes down with a syrupy chocolate flavor, light burn, light hop profile, overall a decent baltic porter. There was dust on the bottle, therefore I’m concerned it’s not as fresh, but it’s still pretty good.

(Bottle). Sweet and slightly metallic scent of roasted malt and hops. Taste of slightly burnt malt, hops and alcohol. Especially in the aftertaste flavor of alcohol. Strange how this beer can get so good ratings, I’m not impressed!

33cl, Hemma, 16/4-14, Bäst före: 27-12-2014 U: Kolsvart, stort kompakt fluffigt krämigt brunt skum som klänger snyggt längs glaskanten. D: Söt rostad och något syrligt askig doft med choklad, bränt trä, lite rökt chark, aska och lite röda bär. Lite vaxduk kikar fram efter en stund. S: Söt och bränt rostad med syrligt askigt/bärigt avslut. Choklad, aska, citrus & röda bär, trä och läder. M: Medelstor till större kropp med mjuk fyllig kolsyra och len textur. T: En riktigt trevlig baltic stout med bra drag i de rostade smakerna. Lite askig och syrlig, men det vägs upp rätt bra av chokladsmaken. Kroppen klenar ur lite.

Bottle from rosenbergh, many thanks! Ins Glas ergießt sich ein sehr dunkelbraunes fast schwarzes Bier mit schöner bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Geruch schokoladig, dunkle Früchte, Kaffee. Geschmack röstmalzig, dunkle Früchte, leicht alkoholisch, einfach lecker!

furthur (126) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Big chestnut head, good lacing, on opaque black body. Aroma is dark malt and dried plums. Flavor is dark chocolate and raisins, touch of yeast and iron, molasses, and mildly bitter black malt finish. Body is a little thin, carbonation fine, a little bit on the high side for style. Metal taste is persistent. Otherwise this is very good.
