thedm (5141) - Fort Wayne, USA - DEC 31, 2004
This bottled brew marked best before 12/07/04 poured a large sized head of frothy medium sized mostly lasting but soon collapses into a foamy thick head that slowly diminishes with dark brown colored bubbles that left behind a good lacing. The body contained no visible carbonation, was opaque and black in color. No light can pass through this one its so opaque like a cave. Its aroma contained notes of creamy roasted malts dark malts and was very nice. Its mouth feel is initially flat and smooth with a lingering tingly palate. Its flavor contained thick dark beer brown malts and roasted notes. It was OK but not as goos as it looked thus disappointing me. It was more like a Schwartz beer than a porter. A very average brew.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - JUN 20, 2005
Pitch black colored with a small brown head. Sweet roasted and buttery aroma with chocolate notes. Sweet and thick butter flavor with some chocolate. All right, but the butter flavor gets cloying in the long run.

Sigmund (5734) - Tau, NORWAY - DEC 11, 2012
500 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 7.2%. Very dark brown colour, nearly black. Large and lasting beige head. Sourish, mildly roasty, woody and "dusty" aroma, hints of over-ripe berries. The flavour is somewhat better than the aroma, roasty flavour with notes of coffee and chocolate, some malty and "berry" sweetness, moderately bitter finish.

kidmartinek (3748) - austin, Texas, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Pours stark black with a 5cm dense, frothy beige head. Toasty malt aroma with that German character... reminds me of wheat malt. Flavor is unfortunately a little sweet so not inline with a Baltic as claimed. At least the finish is more toasty than sweet, but still sweet. At any rate its smooth and drinkable at least the first 25 cl.

argo0 (12124) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 9, 2006
(500ml bottle) Small tan head atop a black body. Aroma is moderately sweet, caramel, roast, some coffee, chocolate, burnt, light smoke, metallic, cherry. Taste is sweet, chocolate, molasses, smoke, coffee, roast, light lemon, cherry. Smooth, sticky medium-full body with low carbonation. Better than the Black Abbot, but still too sweet -- reducing sweetness 40-50% and adding some carbonation would make this much better. As it is, I still could not finish it.
