S_Side_Smitty (679) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2016
Pours black with a large tan head. Aroma is vanilla, oak & brandy. Taste is sweet with a brandy-esque bite that goes to smooth vanilla and dark dried fruits with a creamy finish. Best lagered beer I’ve had, no doubt. Too bad the monopolies never could make one like this.

bytemesis (6016) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 1, 2016
Bottle, 2013 thanks to Gikinji~~ Pours deep clear black, small tan head, dissipates to a ring with some lacing. Aroma is rich, cocoa, bourbon, molasses, anise, oak tannin. Flavor follows, medium sweet, light plus bitter, some heat, rich molasses and anise from the baltic porter, chocolate notes, bourbon brings vanilla and of course bourbon. Medium plus body, somewhat creamy. This is a pretty rock solid beer.

750 ml bottle from Tavour. Nose is chocolate, char, blackberries, and a hint of vanilla. Black with a big heavy lacing tan head. Flavor is lightly sweet, fruity, and chocolaty. Nice.

Lore (1900) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 27, 2016
dark brown colour, one inch creamy light brown head, which lasts for several minutes; aroma of coffee, chocolate, dried plum and sour cherry, some peat, whisky and herbal liqueur notes; taste is the same - amazing baltic porter!

Nocturne (1594) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2016
750ml bottle. Deep black. Good amount of light brown head. Nose is brandy, fig, plum, molasses, liquorice, golden syrup. Smooth, rich taste. Barrels come through well in the finish. Leans more towards the brandy side than bourbon. Great drinkability for such a big beer. Top stuff.

Frax (47) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 12, 2016
Bottle from Bacco. Pours pitch black with a two-finger amber head. Smells of peaty bourbon and burned cherries. Not as thick as I prefer in a porter, but picking nits. Nice chocolate notes with a tongue-numbing brandy finish. Drink at room temperature. Very well done.

ctipping (952) - Florida, USA - FEB 22, 2016
750 mL bottle. Black body. Smell is strong barrel. Lots of brandy. Smells sweet. Coconut. Milk chocolate. Taste also has a lot of coconut. Brandy behind it. Chocolate and some roasted malt. I don’t get much bourbon, though. Oaky finish. Much better than the regular version. At least my bottle.

Thanks Dominic!!!! Wonderful beer. Pours a dark black with stiff tan head. Aromas of smoke, dark fruit, maple, bourbon, sweet brandy. Boozy flavours that carry notes of maple, grapes, smoke, umami. Sweet and decadent.

northropfrye (3092) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 17, 2016
Thanks cards04 for sharing. Dark brown body foamy off white head and nice lacing. Sweet malty dried fruit, booze, lactose, a touch of plastic in the aroma. Taste is rich sweet dark roast malts dried fruit and bourbon. Frothy tingly palate. In some ways this seems as much like a Belgian ale as s Baltic Porter. Really nice.
