hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 5, 2010
Bottle… Pours a murky dark brown with a small, creamy, off-white head. The bouquet is of dark chocolate, espresso and charcoal with a somewhat reserved campfire-smoke component. Full-bodied and silky with soft carbonation. Sweet, nutty, chocolaty, light smoke flavor with a splash of deep roast coffee. Sweet mocha finish with a rumor of smoke at the wee end.

750ml bottle thanks to Ryan. Poured a dark black with brown edges and a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of smoke, roast, and chocolate. Tastes of smoke, caramel, chocolate, and some dark fruitiness.

adnielsen (10199) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 25, 2011
Bottle @ Granny’s house in Exira, Iowa. Deep brown appearance with a dark brown head. Huge smoky nose as soon as you open the bottle. Burnt dark malts in nose also. Dark, burnt, roasted, smoky, malty flavor. Fairly easy drinking while still having the smoked, charred tasted. Slight oak flavor also. Good.

Dogbrick (10001) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 7, 2011
This beer pours a dark brownish-black color with a medium tan head that recedes to a film eventually. Spotty lacing on the glass. Smoky, roasty aroma with notes of malt and chocolate. Medium body with a subtle smoked character, possibly tempered by the oak aging? Notes of dark chocolate and coffee as well. The finish is roasted malt with a touch of dark fruit on the back end. Pretty good overall.

crossovert (9983) - Illinois, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Good smokiness on this one. Smoke dominates the baltic porter. Slight oak but not much.

Sammy (9981) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 24, 2012
Extremely smooth and creamy mouthfeel, with a signficant and controlled smokey taste, with the porter complexty behind it. Thanks Mista.

shrubber85 (9454) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle. Cocoa malt and light smoke aroma. Dark brown with small head. Sweet smoky chocolate malt flavor with a lightly bitter herbal hops finish. Not bad but expected more flavor from a Baltic porter.

GT2 (9412) - Oceanside, California, USA - DEC 12, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2012 750mL courtesy of beeranddogs. Pour is clear, deep, cola brown looking deep cola brown in the glass with highlights. Really no head- some cola fizziness erupts and settles down wickedly fast. No retention. No lace. Aroma is not even smoky: instead there is something medicinal, black cherry soda, cherry juice box, a touch of briney Kalamata olives. As it warms a hint of smokiness comes through but is layered atop some alcohol notes. Taste is bit like burnt plastic, cola sweetness coming in for the rescue but only succeeding in making the beer taste like flat vanilla cherry Coke. Palate is fizzy, fairly thin. 12/12/2010 7/3/6/3/13=3.2

Tap at CK. Deep pour with a thinner tan head. Deep clear black ruby. Rich, smoked meat nose with heavy bacon. Aecht Schlenkerla style. Taste is thinner, lemon tart, nicely roasty. Thinner mouthfeel like a schwarzbier. Just a little bit too much tobacco and dirt and less oily bacon fat. Still quite nice.

DSG (9317) - Tel Aviv, - MAY 12, 2013
[5/4/13] Draught at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. Dark brown to black color with a big beige head. Roasty and smoky aroma with meaty notes. Flavor of smoked and roasted malt, a bit of chocolate, hints of licorice and a bitter alcoholic finish. Medium-bodied.
