AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAY 23, 2007
Opaque, black with a dark brown head that has an orange hue. Caramel, licorice, coffee, smoke, and milk in the aroma. Not as complex on the palate as the aroma. The alcohol and its warmth outshines the other components. Chalky on the palate and quite thin in body. The hop flavor, which is tropical, shows itself as the beer warms and there is an almost chilli powder-like flavor throughout.

TorbenJensen (1396) - Valby, DENMARK - OCT 14, 2015
Although a dark brown and very dense foam located close to the top of the thick coal-black porter. It hangs fat on the inside of the glass and reminiscent of an oily substance. The aroma is coffee and licorice, while the taste varies over dark bitter chocolate, lots of strong coffee and English licorice. It is a sovereign delicious porter.

From 22oz bottle to English pint. Pour is a black with minimal head. Nose is roasted malt, raisin, other fruits, light chocolate, coffee. Taste is medium bodied, mostly sour with hints of sweetness from the sugar. Finishes very crisp with a strong finish. Awesome porter

Erzengel (6248) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUN 18, 2015
Sweetish-Malty beginning. Intense malty with a very sticky sweetish body. Hints of sourness, intense sweetish with roasty coffee-like aroma. Sweetish-malty aftertaste, fresh but sticky, intense. Nice!

"Wish list brew from john. Loved the frosted and surprisingly choppy aroma. Licorice, chocolate, smoke...lots going on, and all very good. But not Wow good, so methinks 64th is a bit on the high side.

Black color with a tan head with short duration, medium lacing. Aroma with coffee notes, black chocolate, some ashes and roasted mals. Flavor is mild bittery with roasted and toasted malts, black coffee and chocolate, some licorice notes. LIght bitterness in the final with a slightly dry mouthfeel.

bottle to glass; from trade with a generous RB! not sure of age and/or how long I had it - a couple of tiers below my favorites in this style aroma was soft - lots of different kinds of chocolate, some roast. palate was good; Taste like aroma but did have some vinous to it that just doesn’t work for me.

Bottle. Thanks huhzubendah! Pours an oily black with wispy lacing. Aroma is a revelation: chocolate, brown sugar, and roasted malts. Flavor is massive, and everything a baltic porter should be. Dark fruits, fig, black cherry, vanilla, chocolate malt, port complexity. Finish is dark fruit sweetness. Outstanding.
