bhensonb (14168) - 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. It’s pretty tasty.

Tmoney99 (13606) - 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.

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.

deyholla (10214) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, 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.

phaleslu (9425) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 28, 2013
On tap at Three Floyds. My wife got this one in an imperial pint glass. Deep brown pour with a finger of beige cap on top that leaves a steady sheet of lace in the glass. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, caramel, and a bit of earth. Flavor had even more vanilla sweetness and lots of chocolate, and not much else; a little bit of balancing earth. Surprisingly sweet. Medium-bodied, with a smooth, sweet mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Didn’t strike me as a Baltic porter but a good beer nonetheless.
