500 ml bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a dark cola brown color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have mild roasted malt, dark fruit, a subtle smoked character, ash, chocolate, mild bitterness, very little sweetness, more dry, decent.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 9, 2016
Bottle shared by tmoney99. Dark fruit, herbal character, bit of roast, ash, more spicy than I’d like. Bit of smoke? Kind of soft, moderate carbonation. Medium to bigger body, mild chewiness. Dark brown color, kind of clear. Ring of tan head. Some bits of lace. Moderate-plus bitter taste, light to moderate sweet. Mildly watery feel, but overall, nice flavor, very different, interesting stuff. Good for 5oz but more may have dragged for me.

Diogène (1145) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 3, 2016
Bottle. Pitch black with a huge mocha head with great retention and nice lacing. Aroma is coffee, roasted malt, dark chocolate and herbal notes. Flavor is similar to the aromas with a rich malty profile, herbal hops and a moderately bitter finish with a hint of alcohol. Medium body with below average carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. Pretty good and well balanced.

maximet (157) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 19, 2016
Black with a ring of moka foam. Slightly toasted, ripe dark fruit, vinous. Mainly sweet, very low bitterness. Medium body, a little thin with a soft carbonation. Easy to drink, a little shy on the flavor. A nice introduction to porter style but not a breakout.

wolffish (535) - Saint-Donat, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 4, 2016
Juste bien dosé, pas trop lourd, j’aime beaucoup celui-là! La mousse est fine et crémeuse. En plus de la torréfaction, je goûte des fruits rouges foncé et de la vanille. Une excellente alternative aux comparables plus forts en alcool et moins axés sur la buvabilité...

HippyHop (601) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2016
Tried this a few weeks back and forgot to rate. Chocolate, toasted grain, caramel. I remember lots of dried/steeped fruit. Wasnt blown away but I remember quite liking it. Worth another try (and probably a rating tweak).

neongolden (1196) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 25, 2016
(On tap @ WVRST, Toronto, Jan 6 2016) Pours black with an average whitish head and no lace. Aroma sweetish dark malts, a bit of grain with caramel and raw sugar, roasty, dry, subtle smoke and oxidation notes. Flavour is lightly sweet dark malts with some toffee, oxidation, light soy and smoky roast. Finish is fairly dry with roasted grains, slight coffee tones, a bit bitter but with some lingering sweetness. Lightish body with lighter carb. It’s a fairly decent, dry sort of Baltic porter but it doesn’t totally click for me - I just keep wanting something more than is really there.

Bottle (600 ml). Split 4-ways. Dark brown with a medium quickly diminishing brown bubbly head leaving little lacing. Aroma is chocolate forward with vanilla notes, roasted malts, maple and raisins. Taste is slightly sweet with chocolate, raisins, plums, maple, vanilla, roasted malt and mild bitterness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Dried fruits finish. Good Baltic Porter that isn’t too much on the sweet side. Interesting fruity features.
