Bottle poured a clesr reddish brown witha lasting creamy tan head. Aromas of carmel, oak, light fruittiness and light cola. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, light oak and a hint of fruittiness with a smooth finish. A very boring Baltic Porter, as well as a waste of Barrel aging.

12 ounce bottle from Badger in Beloit. Pours a very dark murky brown with a large creamy brown head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel and an off note almost like rotten vegetables. The taste is tart fruits and a malty finish. Kinda tastes like a fruit smoothie. Faint whisky and vanilla notes. Medium bodied. This one is majorly infected.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Bottle. Dark pour, but pours a bit thin and the head is minimal. Nose is pretty nice - roasted malt and a bit of charred wood. Palate is moderate. Taste is roasty malts, and a bit of cigarette ash. Unspectacular.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
courtesy of BA trade. Bottle indicates Barrel aged Baltic Porter.
pours light brown, mocha head.
aroma, some berries, dark fruits, the wood aging is very mild and thin on the palate with some moderate note of vanilla, dark and caramel malts.
flavors, faint barrel,wood and hints of vanilla, dark fruits, chocolate/caramel malts and light roast.
Was really hoping for more of a barrel presence. Regardless, it’s a fairly nice baltic porter, lingering dark fruits, and a finish that is a little too thin.
