Black in colour with a small off white head. Aromas of sweet malt, dark berry fruit, and a bit of soy. Flavors of prune dominate along with notes of black licorice and a bit of iron. Nice mouthfeel. Less "bright" fruit than I had expected, and quite dominant alcohol presence as well.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2006 I had the opportunity to re-sample a bottle of Sinebrychoff Porter. Well blended mix of chocolate and licorise malts with a spicy yeast. Sweet and roasted malts flavor. An intersting twist on a Baltic Porter, I think it has a bit of English influence. Original rating 11.19.04 @ 3.1 It was a five year old bottle, probably past its prime.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - NOV 17, 2004
Pours absolutely black with a lasting tan head. Carmel and coffee aroma with some hops. Caramel and coffee again in the flavor but it was all much more subtle than I expected. Also seemed a little thin on the palate but overall I’d say this is a great porter.

gustytke (8) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - NOV 14, 2004 does not count
Dark, dark color with a heavy rich dark head. Head lasts forever with beautiful lacing. Complex aromas of fruit, roasted malt. Entry is fruity, almost like a Belgian Ale. Slightly chewy, makes the mouth pucker. Is it raisans or plums? Malty goodness. One of the finer porters I have ever had.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 14, 2004
Bottle pours viscous and opaque with a very large creamy tan head and chocolate malt lace. The aroma is of roasted malt and bitter dark chocolate. The flavor is of chocolate, ever so slightly lactic, slightly bitter, and rich. The palate is coating and slick. Overall, this is one fine Baltic Porter.

kathouse (1201) - Nevada, USA - NOV 10, 2004
Deep brown color is complimented by a nice thick tan foam. Head lasted a long time and left good lacing despite best before 2003 label. Unusually sweet aroma like toffee and fruit is very prominent. Roasted flavor sticks to the back of your throat. Moderately dry finish. Like brown sugar. Nice body and carbonation makes for a refreshing beer.

DocLock (8341) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2004
Gorgeous label. Pours deep brown/blackish with a huge, creamy, tan head. Aroma of malt, chocoff, nuts, corn flakes. Tastes malty, with big chocoff flavor in addition to cognac, and a slightly dry, rauchy finish. Firm palate, and very smooth. An excellent porter.

tiggmtl (4547) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 16, 2004
Grape and dark fruit esters, dark malts and chocolate-covered field berries in the aroma. Opaque black body with cover of brown head that recedes to ring. Intense roastiness - almost astringent - puckers the cheeks a bit yet flavour is strongly sweet. Roasted coffee, brown sugar, marzipan, and soy notes in the long aftertaste. Quite assertive bitterness. Medium-full body. Light sting of carbonation titillates the tongue. Bottle enjoyed with MartinT and Rastacouere at The Moan and Dove (Amherst, Massachusetts).

brunnsbe (77) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 12, 2004
This truly is one of the best porters ever made, especially in the Baltic porter class. Burnt malt aromas, brown sugar, coffee, toffee and chocolate.
