weihenweizen (1608) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - DEC 24, 2013
Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle obtained from BVery with wax on the cap. Pours black with medium dark brown highlights with medium light brown head. Aroma is roasty with some smoke, medium body, medium carbonation, and big bubble lacing. Taste is roasty, smoke, and some pepperoni. Hoped for a little more flavor, alcohol is well covered, and is not as heavy as I expected.

750ml from arminjewell - thanks, man! As usual, amazing artwork and bottle presentation from Surly. Dark brown pour, with moderate carbonation at first but then nada. Nose is fairly understated, soft malts, sweet candy, and moderate smoke. Waxy palate for a lager, but oh wait it’s a Baltic porter? Taste reveals a hint of vanilla, but unfortunately we kept waiting for a smoke quality that was only ever very mild. Thinnish too.

Rando7 (725) - Iowa, USA - MAY 19, 2011
Bottle pours dark brown with frothy tan head. Aroma smoky. Taste roast, malts, caramel, a bit of chocolate and a lot of smoke and barbecue. Palate medium-thick with moderate carbonation. Finish brief and roasty with a little alcohol burn. The porter aspects were not as strong other Baltics, and the smoky aspects dominated a bit much. Glad I got to try it.

Side by side with a homebrew clone. Not cloned and not as good as the homebrew. This is a six monthish old bottle and has medium smoke and roast aromas. This black pour. some smoke and oxidative(slightly) notes take away from the overall experience. This is caramelly and smooth and clean but a little bleh. Ok.
