robinvboyer (4170) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2016
Big, rich, dark, and very roasty with some subtle fruit, and woody sweetness. Rich mouth feel, good carb. Medium to high bitterness, roasty, semi sweet finish, with some coffee, and soy overtones.

Eructoblaster (3885) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 3, 2009
On tap at the pub. On tap at the pub. Pours an opaque black body with low carbonation and a lasting beige creamy head. Lovely, complex malty/hoppy aroma with brown sugar, roasty, and fruity hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Well balanced taste. Texture is soft. Taste carries plummy, vineous notes. Ends with a long, warming bittersweet finish. Well done.

Bulk_Carrier (3851) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - OCT 17, 2016
Poured into an English pint glass, the appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a white to off white foamy head dissipates appropriately. Messy run about lace. The aroma starts off with a ruddy milk and dark chocolate blending with some candied dark fruits. Seems like there’s a subtle dried hoppy grassiness underneath. Light earthiness. The flavor brings together the previously mentioned aromas sweetly layered with a delicate roast underneath. Smooth bitter yet somewhat wet sort of dark fruity aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionable smooth feel to it. Low carbonation yields to the wet feel on my tongue. Overall, nicely done Baltic Porter that I would have again.

Bottle from the brewery store, enjoyed in my hotel room in the beer wasteland of Havre St Pierre Quebec. Solid black color with a huge bubbly tan head with great retention. Rich chocolate with light fruitiness and somewhat of a dubbel profile. Tasty, but not quite what I was expecting.

probstblueribbon (3722) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 14, 2015
600 ml bottle shared by Phil. Very deep brown with a fair mocha head. Very deep bread crust, light chocolate, somewhat nutty, vanilla, slightly oxidized, odd phenolic smoke. Medium plus body, full, fine carbonation. Messy...smoky, sweet, vaguely fruity, not deep or dark enough; off-dry with moderate bitterness and a sherry-like, slightly hot finish. Surprisingly poor for this brewer.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2008 Sampled on tap at Vices et versa. Pours a deep black color with a light brown head. Very seductive aroma of black licorice, chocolate and roasted malt. Superb, balanced flavor of chocolate, black licorice and roasted malt with a mild bitter finish. The body is light and liquorous while the carbonation is gentle. It’s a very pleasant and dangerously easy to drink baltic porter.
