vtafro (2465) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - APR 12, 2011
Draft @ Rattle ’N’ Hum SN event. Dark pour with a bit of tan head. Dark fruit,dark malt, toffee, caramel, some roasted aromas. Aging has made for some oxidation in the flavor, not a bad thing per say, dark fruits, sweet malt, and some boozy undertones.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2010
Tap at RNH. Pours a big brown/black good lasting head. Aroma is big monstrous roasty with big dark chocolate, hints of coffee, toast, oxidized sherry, plum and fruity esters. Flavor is also fruity with plum fig, dark raisin, sherry, big roast, chocolate malt, earth, light wood- gets slight papery then tannic grapeskin with seeds, plummy prunes, jammy, deep burnt toast, then a light dry herbal and earthy finish with more roasted malts and medium hop bitterness. Good stuff.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 14, 2010
Draft. Pours a black body with a scant off white head. Boozy and almost oxidized tones, i’ve noticed this more with baltic porters. Toasted caramel, bitter licorice, and some paper like notes. A bit slick with an oily like warming.

j12601 (6585) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 3, 2010
On tap at Rattle n Hum during their Sierra Nevada event. Pours a dark brown to black with a thin to medium sized tan head. Sweet roast, plum, cocoa, and char on the nose. Chewy sweet malt and a bunch of cocoa. Medium bodied, very chewy. Sweet and smooth, lots of roast, cocoa, and big char as it warms up.

TeamTrappist (830) - jericho, New York, USA - DEC 2, 2010
Tap at Rattle N Hum. Poured a dark black. Nose is a bit sour and wine like. A bit thinned out but lots of big flavors. Pruny with other dark fruit notes. Fairly tart with a very dry finish. Different than most of this style but really good.

zdk (1807) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 30, 2010
tap @ RnH - definitely not like most Baltic porters I’ve had. Molasses, brown sugar chocolate sweet honey, sugary sweet smooth palate, licorice and malty.Surprisingly good.

On tap @ Rattle N Hum. Black opaque with some tan head, nice lacing. Strong aroma with molasses, raisins, somewhat overwhelming. Medium to full bodied, some fruit, berry comes out on palate, hint of sourness. Smooth, nice finish.

puzzl (3240) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 30, 2010
Tap at RnH. 1 year old sample, according the rep. Some excellent oxidation and aging in this one, very surprising. Had the flavor profile of an excellently aged imperial stout. Port, berry, a touch of balsamic. Medium-thick body, butterscotch finish. Orange zest. Very nice.

auerbrau (3126) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - AUG 26, 2010
22oz counter-pressure-filled handbottle. Nice crisp aroma of foreign-stout-like dark roasted malts, some hazelnut, a bit of chocolate syrup and lots of bright snappy sugar tones. Pours a dark black-brown, with a good ring of head. This is a really solid example, in my opinion. With a bit of age on this bottle, it comes across as well-married and mingled. Bright fresh maltiness, paired with just a fantastic dark malt bill, clean lagering, and some subtle distant hint of spice. Solid body, well balanced by alcohol and roast. Yum! Thanks Andy!

Maple syrup flavor with a hint of vanilla and oak, great beer... Not bad offering from Sierra Nevada
