Jet black color with tan head & lots of nice lacing & carbonation. Bright rusty hops & sweet robust bourbon & chocolate malts, tons of porter goodness here. Smoky flavor, light metallic smoky meats; sausage, excellent flavors blends with some oak & a whop of alcohol I love an authentic Baltic Porter and this one sure didn't dissapoint. Thanks John's Marketplace!

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2004 re-rating after a 1997 bottle: like liquid molasses, supremely balanced with just enough hops to make it oh-so-smooth...

original rating: 4.5 surprisingly large tan head on an opaque black beer. strongly malty and bitter on the nose with some chocolate and raisiny scents. extremely smooth; roastedness turns into a lightly bitter but not dry finish. coats your mouth like cough syrup--that's a good thing! i can see this keeping me up late and warm in the winter.

A dark beer witha substantial head. Rich malty aroma. Chocolate undertones and a roastyness too in the flavor wnding with a subtle hops bite in the finish. I'll have another.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 6, 2004
Opaque appearance with a full dark tan head. Full-bodied with a good amount of bitterness. Extravagant sweet, caramel malt aromas. Rich malt and chocolate flavors have a sweetness that is well complemented by hop bitters that have just enough touch to provide a good balance. Outstanding, thick and warming. Wow!

Chocolatey, fruity undertones. Warm and balanced front with a slight hoppiness in the rear. 1997 vintage.

BBB63 (5743) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 29, 2003
Deep brown hue with good tan head and very good lace. The aroma hints of molasses, burnt dark malts, mocha, raisin, minor citrus, aromatic hops, and touch of alcohol. The taste has a bitter and grapefruit undertone with a malty and smoky main characteristic. Some sweet chocolate and coffee notes as well. The mouthfeel is lively and smooth, the alcohol is hidden on the palate. One damn nice Baltic Porter, glasd to have a few more bottles of this and at $2.69, a darn good buy as well. Recommended.

Bitter chocolate and toffee with lingering smoke malt aroma. Dark, almost black with strong lacing and a good dark brown head. Flavor was rich with bitter sweet chocolate and coffee with a strong bitter finish. A very nice porter.

Black with a thick tan head. Big malty, roasty, aroma, with a subtlenote of alcohol and a slight note of raisin. Flavor is big and roastybacked up with a chewy hyop bitterness, and a touch of raisin. Nice and thick. YUM!

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 20, 2003
deadly thick and gangster black with a huge very brown chocolate milk colored head...malty aroma of chocolate milk and well..spent grains and malts and just damn maltiness...and maybe even a tad sweet...flavors mirror the aroma at first, with more maltiness and chocolate flavors..maybe even a smidgen of dried pineapple dipped in caramel..then it shows notes of smokiness and takes on a silkier, oily mouthfeel...it has a little lactic tartness at the very end...its not as thick as you'd think..making it extremely, and even dangerously drinkable.

Black body with a brown head that quickly diminishes to a small ring around the edge. Some lacing too, but not much. Dried fruits and malts in the aroms. Sweeter than I expected, but the dried fruits were most evident. Really tasty overall
