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 (1237) - 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 (8500) - 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 (4545) - 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.

Rastacouere (6159) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 12, 2004
Bottle at the Moan and Dove. Tar like pour. Thin tan head fades quickly, but it remains dark as night. Powerful malty aroma, lots of dates and grapes character, but also a considerable chocolate cake portion and this huge roasted malt, flakey counterpart. Great balance, awe-inspiring alcohol dissimulation. Intense palate starts with big dates and anise maltiness. It quickly lets room to an extreme roasty finish, very long.. like 2 parts roasted licorice and 1 part cereals. The sweetness fades out in total control. Acidity level is maintained very low. How much dark malt could they fit into a 12oz? A lot of things going on. Complexity is not disturbed by the great thick airy body. Thick enough that the high carbonation appears just smooth and creamy. It feels like they’ve brewed it with oatmeal.

Lubiere (11014) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2004
Same batch as Capflu, best before June 27, 2003, but bought in Indianapolis. Deep dark beer with perfect thick intimidating moka head. Light chocolate aroma with some fruitiness, and demara sugar. Chocolate malt like malted balls, with coffee finish. Caramle squares is a good descriptive Todd! Not exactly oily but does fill your tastebuds! Yummy.

IndianaRed (2805) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 6, 2004
Bottle "Bottled in 2000" label, pours a pitch black with a big foamy light brown head, leaving fairly coarse but even lacing. Aroma is awsome! Chocolate, toffee, vanila, and yea...bananas. Flavor is slightly smokey and subtle on all fronts. Tootsie rolls, vanilla, caramel, and a little charcoal. A strong bold porter this is not. A soft smooth very tasty porter..yes. Feel is extremely soft and silky. Like butter. Trailer is just a slight bitter smokey flavor. Excellent

BeerandBlues2 (10713) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 5, 2004
Pours jet black with a thick brown head, enough of which hangs around for some good lacing. Aromas are sweet malt and licorice with a nose of plum and raisins. Sweetly bitter flavor with coffee and plum hints. Slight metallic feel on the palate, otherwise a full-bodied porter. Paired very well with a spicy meal.
