Sweet, roasted, smoky aroma. Poured dark as any stout with a HUGE fluffy mocha head. Burnt and bitter flavors with a good bit of wood smoke in the fore taste. Some carmelized brown sugar notes in the after taste. Very substantial mouthfeel. Towards the end of the beer the head looks like a rootbeer float. Long lasting head. Overall I detect more sweetness and smokiness than roastiness and choclate and while this is still great beer itís not ever going to be a favorite.

First impression of Koff was through a firm and friendly handshake... a sweet & smoky, roasted aroma. Then you step back to take a good look at your new "friend"... he has a staunch, "take no prisoners" persona, darker than some Russian Imperial stouts. Jet-black bodied with mahogany highlights and a dark, mocha-brown head... darker than many a beersí body color. The taste is when he turns the tables on you... solid, bitter coffee carried by full malts that add just a touch of sweetness to laugh in your face as he rubs it into the concrete. Heavy, strict and unforgiving. If you donít like him... Koff says, "Piss off. Someone else will." Iím happy to call him a friend.

1997 vintage. Poured fairly black with medium brown head. Nice chocolately roasty aroma, and maybe a little smokey. Good choclate malty flavors, with some roastiness and some maybe some earthy type fruit. Somewhat thin for a baltic porter, but super drinkable.

2003. Poured black with a medium brown head and and lots of lacing. Aroma of chocolate followed by some coffee and a tangy smoke, like from smokehouse almonds. Roasted smokey malt flavor. Light to medium body with a light bitter semi dry finish.

Pour is a jet black with a tan head. Aroma is nice and roasty. Flavor is roasted chocolate with a nice dark fruity aftertaste. It is a bit thin like some raters have stated but there is plenty of flavor to satisfy.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 22, 2005
Vintage 1997 Bottle #2884 Very dark brown pour with a non-existant head. Great big rich caramel-coffee aroma that promises much. Does not disappoint. Roasted malt flavor with notes of coffee, burnt fruit, nuts, caramel... Very warming alcohol presence. This eight year old baltic porter is much more mellow and rich than the fresh batch.

Dorwart (2522) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 21, 2005
Large dark brown head of very fine bubbles. Light carbonation. Lovely ring lacing. Head reduces very slowly. Sweet aroma with plums, malts and chocolate. Sweet and very smooth flavor. Little thin in the body. More malts, bitter dark chocolate and a hint of coffee. Very smooth and very easy drinking. Hides its alcohol very well. Creamy finish with a little biterness but is short lived. Another very good baltic porter. Damn I like these baltic porters.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2006 Pours a fat foamy brown head that leaves a ton of lace. Fully opaque. Chocolate and roasted malt. Mediciney. Oily Long Finish....get it?

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2005
Poured deep black with a lasting light brown head. Mild chocolate aroma, with some nice coffee notes. Flavour is a combination of berries, roast coffee and chocolate. Almost some burnt sugar notes there too. Medium bodied. Not bad!

Got this at valley wines. Poured black/brown with a huge tan lasting head. Roasted malts and coffee and chocolate nose. Taste was the same a bit burnt coffee and chocolate, sweet. Balanced finished.
