Eructoblaster (3033) - 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.

JulienHuxley (3158) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2010
On tap at TDD. Dark brown pour with hints of red. Nice roasted aroma mixed with candied fruits and coffee. Taste is not overwhelming, just a nice balance of fruity sweetness and roasted bitterness. Palate is a bit thin, but quite enjoyable.

AU mondial. Plus léger qu’une stout, assez carbonisé, torréfié, un sucre leger mais distinct.

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 7, 2014
Dégustée (en fût) le 31 mai 2013 au Mondial de la Bière 2013 à Montréal (D13C3K420i). Bière noire opaque. Col mince beige foncé crémeux et persistant. Odeur de sirop de café. Très douce, très sucrée, assez amère en finale. Goût de café noir marqué. Pas trop sirupeuse malgré le sucre, se boit bien, pas trop lourde. Peut-être un peu trop légère et mince.

BiereLuc (904) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 1, 2013
Bière noire avec un nez de grains grillés et de café. En bouche, c’est encore le goût de grillé qui domine avec une belle balance amertume / sucre résiduel.

jercraigs (7894) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2013
2013-05-31. Black body with a modest tan head. 4+ Aroma of dry roasty malt, sweeter dark malt undertones. Flavour is relatively dry, dusty malt, light roast. Much drier than expected from a Baltic porter. Average bodied palate is a bit light , modest carbonation. Bit light for the style. Enjoyable but not a great example of a Baltic porter. Pretty decent. On tap at Mondial de la Biere 2013, Montreal
