3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Courtesy of Blazer06. It pours amber with hues of copper and brass to go along with an off white head. The aroma is light bacon with a sense of roasty malts and trying to move into a plastic sense. The taste is pretty full and rich with sweet malts, crystal malts, some roast and tasty bacony camp fire goodness. It stays smoky bacon to mild smoky burnt notes into the finish to go along with some ripe sweet cherries.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled this one @ CCB.
This one is the perfect smoke beer with the right balance.
Dark brown in color, light tan head.
Smoked malts blend perfectly with the oak that at times might appear to be in hindsight. Not over the top, and a tad extra smoke would have been even better.
Lot going on there, dark chocolate, roasted malts, oak flavors come mesh together adding to the smoked malts and occasional bacon-like goodness.

Good smokiness on this one. Smoke dominates the baltic porter. Slight oak but not much.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle:   Nearly black, thin sudsy beige head, spotty lacing.   Beautiful smoked meat on the nose.   No band-aid at all.   Smells great!   Sweet smokiness up front, nice and smooth.   Wished it had a bit more body, but being as clean as it is I cannot complain.   Slight roastiness and dark chocolate too.   Really nice.   Lingering smoked malts and meat on the tongue.   This is great!   Not overly smoked like so many others.   Nice balance.   ABV is well hidden.   Good stuff!
