A pretty solid beer. I think this series could yield some fantatic beer if they keep this up.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 5/16/12
Aroma: The aroma is rather roasty, some dry coffee beans, caramel, and other malts
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a light brown head, and light-medium lace
Flavor: Tastes similar to the nose, headlined by the roasted malts and a light hoppy presence
Palate: The body isnít light, but it is lightish for the style, and a smoothish, dry finish
This isnít a bad Baltic Porter, but it isnít great either. Perhaps it is a little one dimensional with the roasted malts, but that is not a huge criticism. I donít have a ton of interesting stuff to say about it, but it was a solid effort by Lakefront, and Iím interested in trying more beers from this "My Turn" series.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, dark black pour with nice creamy tan head, dissipates mostly but lasts. Aroma brings notes of roast, chocolate, dark fruits, some pine and slight green apple notes, some slight off creamy note, hints of espresso as well. Taste is sweet chocolate, caramel, hints of espresso, touch of dark fruits. Pretty nice, but some slightly off note in the aroma.

okay, since my name is Dan I was drawn, but I had been thinking about Baltic porters, & this had a nice price. aromas--cocoa, wood chips, dark roast, alcohol, wheat toast. flavors--dark chocolate, milk chocolate, licorice. canít see through dark brown with a creamy dark tan head. neither too thin or too thick.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bottle: Pours a mostly opaque black with a spotty-lacing beige head. Has a rich sweet dark caramel nose with some light roast, chocolate and plum notes. Starts with good fullness and chewy sweet dark malt with some dark fruity complexity and mild piny hop flavor and bitter balance. Finishes slightly drier, but still semi-sweet, with good dark chocolate character. True to style and quite enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours very dark, almost black. Very little head. Aroma of anis or licorice. Taste is rich with malt and coffee, a touch of hops, almost a little burnt. Notes of hops in there too. An interesting combination of flavors, thumbs up on this one.

Bottle pours deep red/black with a rocky beige head. Aroma is sweet with notes of roast, dark chocolate, plum, anise, and a touch of vanilla. Flavor shows more roast than the nose let on, almost approaching smokey, with underlying dark fruit as well as some coffee. Overall body is moderate, creamy and finishes with a nice roasted bitterness.
