Aroma is bacon, hickory, and smoke, with dark malts and alcohol. Smells very clean and slightly sweet. Pour is absolutely black with no head. Taste is intensely smoked, sweet, lots of the typical baltic porter- chocolate, cocoa, light to moderate bitterness, and slight alcohol. Finish is slightly sweet, smoky bacon, and low bitterness. Good, if a little too sweet.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 13, 2010
bomber recapped from nbutler. consumed 4/17/10. opaque pour is a very dark brown shade of black with a small tan head. nice mellow, rich and sweet smoky aroma... along with chocolate, ashy roast, light sourness, wood and a raisin-like fruitiness which play a secondary role. rich fudgey flavor... sour smoky salami, umami, raisins, molasses, roast, faint vanilla and a tart finish are all in great harmony. it is full bodied and hearty yet terribly easy to drink... especially with some tasty welsh cheddar! 8/5/8/4/17/+

13mikey (503) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - JUL 7, 2010
750 ml bottle from the Four Firkins. Deep, dark brown colored pour with a small tan head that immediately vanishes. Sweet, smokey aroma with a hint of oak. Flavor is also sweet, smokey and oaky with some nice malty balance. Finish is sweet smokiness. I paired it with Mexican food for a great combo.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 5, 2010
Light smoke aromas with malty notes on the nose. Pours a dark amber, brown. Very malty with caramel notes and hints of molasses with just hints of smoke. Not bad but I could use more smoke.

From a bottle. Pours dark brown to black with a small tan head that quickly fades. Smoke in the aroma along with some chocolate. Flavor is smoky, chocolate, oats, and somewhat sugary. Finish is sweet. Smoke isn’t too intense, but is still quite prominent. Pretty solid.
