Bottle. Pours opaque black, brown head. Thick roasted aroma and flavour, some bitterness too. The first porter I ever tried and haven’t found a better one so far. Excellent beer.

Pours a pitch black with a ruby halo anda huge, thick, and oily brown head. Aroma is sweet dark fruit, dark chocolate, and cake batter. Flavor is tart, fruity, coffe, chocolate, port wine, yeasty, and full. Hops very present, but balance well. Fantastic stuff!

BEUTIFUL full brown head. Honestly one of the best heads I have seen. Sweet chocolate aroma. Flavor is delicious, wonder chocolate and caramel flavors. This beer would be great as a desset. This is an absolutly wonderful stout. Very drinkable and sweet.

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2009 Bottle. Dark black body with tan head. Retains head well. Head was bubbly at first and later turned more creamy. This is one of my favorite styles. A taste reveals, dark roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate, baker’s chocolate. Powdered cocoa. There are plums, raisins, nuts. but I am most struck by the dark chocolate. Hmmm, I wonder what this one would taste like brandy barrel aged? Only complaint might be that the finish is a bit weak and abrupt. Excellent Baltic Porter. This is how it is done right!

This is an excellent example of a Baltic Porter. Probably the best I have ever had. I like it a little better than Okocim. Not sure I have ever had a better one...

Sinebrychoff Porter has a very thick, creamy, tan head and a dark brown, almost black, appearance, with thick lacing left behind. The aroma is of extremely rich, stinging malts, astringency, black cherries, licorice, black bread crust, and sour cream. The taste is of all those elements, with little bitterness and no alcohol showing up. Mouthfeel is thick and viscous, and Sinebrychoff Porter finishes dry, sweet, rich, and cake like. Overall, this is an outstanding imperial ale! RJT

Juseq (158) - FINLAND - AUG 27, 2013
Bottle @ akkurat, BBE 27012006 (brewed 2004 being over 9 years old). Aroma is minimally roasty with figs and madeira-type aroma and raisins. Mouthfeel and aftertaste are silky smooth with mainly dark chocolate and coffee. Smooth mouthfeel with plenty of aroma. Rated before as 4.0 as 1 year matured, this tops that nicely.

TAR (2410) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - MAY 23, 2002
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2004 Two years past its best by date. One of the best Baltic aromas i've experienced. Mild, yet stunningly complex with soft notes of baked black currants and molasses. Hints of almonds, butter, concorde grapes, roasty whiffs of malt, and vinous notes; some cardboard (oxidation) as the beer warms. Creamy, feathery soft carbonation. Starts moderately roasty followed up with rich maltiness, charred chewiness, and an acidic, abundant black licorice finish. Still gaining much more complexity after many years in the bottle and becoming more elegant, seemingly by the day. Thus far, the most elegant Baltic Porter out there.

Pours an opaque black with a thick dark tan head that dissipates slowly and has great lacing. The aroma is piney and fruity with some malt. Mouthfeel is so deep, rich, and creamy and it is so smooth, it's hard to find the tastes, I guess roasted upfront which follows into a subtle piney hop bite that blends very nicely. Overall, this is an excellent porter.

obisbeer (565) - Barcelona, SPAIN - JUL 15, 2004
Very very dark with brown head. Marshmallow, chocolate, coffee, tootsie roll aromas. Rich w/light acidity to cleanse chocolate, toffee, coffee, grounds, and some bitter chocolate and a roasted malt finish.
