DrnkMcDermott (2865) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - MAY 25, 2008
Draft 8 oz. "mini-shaker" at 3Fs. Thin but noticeably brown head atop a porter to stout dark body. A sharp coffee smell I haven’t found in the Baltic strain of porter before. Flavor is strong with coffee hard candies, but still a bit of lager cleanness. Threads of semi-sweet chocolate chips. Can’t say it goes down easy; I had to wrestle it a little. But when it finally yields, it does so nicely.

Ancient rating from Hunahpu’s Day 2012, I recently found my tasting notes. Figured why waste good ticks…espresso, cacao, dates. tobacco, somewhat bitter. Nice.

djd07 (4899) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 10, 2015
Bottle thanks to Will. Pours a cloudy brown with small beige head. The aroma is roasted malt and chocolate. Medium mouth, nice roast, light dark chocolate, hides alcohol well, very good.

Bottle. Pours midnight black with a bit of head. Aroma is espresso and dark chocolate. Taste is super smooth, velvety. Lots of cocoa, milk chocolate and excellent coffee flavor throughout. I could drink this all night.

RussianDragon (565) - - SEP 28, 2014
22 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown with lasting beige head that leaves no lacing, with maroon hues when backlit. Aroma is malt with subdued chocolate and roast notes with dark fruit sweetness. Flavor is same with medium body, silky carbonation, and sweet dark fruit finish.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
Huhzubendah (2783) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle shared by RussianDragon. Thanks man. The beer is dark mahogany with an inch of soapy, foamy, beige head. Aromas of chocolates, dark fruit. Sweet fruits with some cherry notes. Chocolate covered cherries and perhaps a touch of espresso. Raisins, prunes, dates, figs, etc. Perhaps a mild hop bitterness might help to balance the equation a bit. Finishes sweet. Definitely a bottle for sharing, as the sweet character becomes cloying.
