Travlr (20337) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 29, 2010
Draft at Churchkey. Very dark maroon, thick brown head, solid lacing. Aroma of candied dark chocolate, black liquorice. Taste is dark chocolate soda, hi carbonation. Good stuff.

fiulijn (18445) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 5, 2015
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Dark color, almost black, small beige head. Clean, dryish, but with good body strength, mildly roasted malts, ordinary bitterness, some bottom fermentation esters.
Possibly brewed to fit the tradition, but classic Baltic Porter is not too exciting, and so this one.

Oakes (14975) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 4, 2015
Black w/ bubbly head. Molasses and chewy fruity malt nose, sweet taste, has a chocolatey character with dark fruits. Baltic-esque

Tmoney99 (13163) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 17, 2016
Bottle. Poured dark clear brown color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted chocolate malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium dark sweet flavor with medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid complex beer.

mcberko (13047) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 9, 2015
On tap at St Augustine’s, pours black with a reddish tinge and a small tan head. Aroma brings out notes of vanilla, some roast, and cocoa. Flavour is similar but less pronounced and complex, with roast and a touch of vanilla. Not overly interesting. Medium bodied and unflawed, but fairly boring.

Scopey (11790) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2015
Keg at Stillwell. It pours jet black with a small light tan head. The nose is soft, sweet, oily, treacle, salted liquorice, roasted malt, maritime fayre and cocoa. The taste is bitter-sweet, rich roast, salted caramel, liquorice, toasty, treacle, dark chocolate and coffee with a dry, roasty finish. Medium+ body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Well rounded and easy drinking actually. Good baltic porter.

Sammy (10793) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 3, 2013
Mondial 2013. Hoppy black beer, lacy. Good drinkability. More like a black IPA than a porter.
