gsteph (321) - knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 18, 2004
Deep black with caramel head. Aromas of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, smoke, and fruit. Strong bittersweet flavors combining very strong, almost burnt coffee, bittersweet chocolate, vanilla, and mocha, all wrapped up in a smoky blanket. Thick and chewy while smooth and silky. Excellent roasted malt sweetness that finishes with a bittersweet finish. Perfectly balanced.

Velkyal (317) - Gordonsville, Virginia, USA - OCT 31, 2012
3 year old bottle. Pours an inky black with a steady schmeer of light brown foam. The aroma is rich dark chocolate, with traces of spice and a very faint sherry note. Tastewise, rich malty sweetness and a riot of chocolate and coffee fight it out and yet find balance with a subtle but firm hop bite. Full bodied, but not cloying. Very nice.

Frahmo (316) - Idaho, USA - DEC 19, 2013
On tap at bittercreek, black pour with minimal head. Fruity, sour but almost sweet overtones. Dry. Salty aftertaste. Thin body, medium carbonation. Weird tasting beer.

antzman (316) - Clarksville, Indiana, USA - FEB 1, 2006
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a tan head. The alcohol comes through strongly in the nose. Heavy body, with a great amount of bitterness that gives a great taste. Alcohol is a bit strong in the flavor, but a good porter.

Tap at Ginger Man. Ehh. not very complex. Aroma is roasted malts and some strange sours sweetness. Flavor is roasted malt and coffee with not much else.

Bottle. Been looking forward to trying this one out. Pours like a big stout, not a porter - opaque black and a big foamy brown head. Aroma is big and malty - fruit and chocolate notes, tobacco, and a little booze. The flavor is much more subdued, though, with a sweet malt layer carrying along some roast and minimal hop flavors. Palate is just a little thinner than Iíd like. I spent some time with this porter, trying to figure it out. It has an particular character that I canít quite define. Itís not the biggest or most complex porter, but itís certainly an interesting one to drink. Take your time with it, too - I came to enjoy it more as it continued to warm a bit.

Merc (313) - Pullman, Washington, USA - JAN 17, 2003
Wonderfully dark with a huge head. Aroma of molasses, some caramel, a bit syruppy. Appropriate palate. Nicely roasted flavour, with some coffee and vanilla, more caramel.

Sinebrychoff Porter 12 oz bottle Moderate pour in an English pint Bottled 2000, uncovered 2007 Poured black with a small light brown somewhat diminishing frothy head. To be expected from an old porter. Smelt of strong vinous and burnt malt qualities, molasses, tar, raisins. Taste was upfront strong bitter burnt grain, stale bread, cobwebs and tar and sweet raisins followed by a bitter burnt grain and coffee and sweet light molasses on a long finish. Palate was medium bodied, oily, softly carbonated and moderately astringent. Overall, I found that the 2 aged baltic porter Iíve had recently smell and taste like musty basements. This one has nice bold flavors and is very comfortable on the palate and the nose. I need to try this fresh, but I am very happy with it as is.
