bhensonb (11060) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Bomber from Liz. Pours very dark brown with a slight, transient beige head. Aroma is sort of a reminder of some sort of English breakfast dark malty thing. It has cola aspects and seems just a bit salty. Itís pretty tasty.

Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 17, 2010
Sample at IBG 2010 Winterfest. Poured black color with medium brown creamy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium roasted coffee malt aroma. Medium to full body with a dry smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium toasted malt flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Interesting solid brew.

Dogbrick (8133) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Brownish-black pour with a medium frothy tan head that diminishes steadily. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Medium body with flavors of caramel malt, coffee and a bit of dark fruit. The finish is roasty with a short coffee aftertaste. Decent overall.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 9, 2004
Pours a rich, oily blackish brown with a dense tan head. Aroma of sweet caramel and roasted malts with some molasses and dark fruits. Body starts rich and sugary sweet with good malty complexity and a nice balance of lager yeast. Very smooth, despite its viscosity, and it hides its alcohol quite well. An excellent baltic porter!

Ibrew2or3 (6888) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 7, 2012
Bottle pours deep amber to mahogany with thin tan head. The aroma offers up dark fruity sweetness and earthiness. The taste is much the same with a mix of caramel candy, prunes, cherries and dates. It quickly flows into earthiness that seems to bind together the experience just as a bit of booze tries in vain to pull this thing apart. Tasty Baltic Porter that is hitting all the right buttons.

deyholla (6633) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 11, 2010
Sampled from a growler at the 2010 Indiana Winterfest. Poured a dark brown with a brown head. Aroma was full of roasted malts and an undertone of chocolate and alcohol. Flavor was similar with the chocolate being a bit more present, but roasted malts still being the main note.
