   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 17/20
DrnkMcDermott (2873) - 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.

Sask89 (474) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - APR 29, 2015
Pours a very dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is fairly smoky with roasted malts and a little coffee. Taste is a little sweet and not too dry, fairly malty. Medium to full body, soft carbonation, and smooth on the palate. Overall a good porter.

Sarlacc83 (1171) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 17, 2015
Tap at Apex for Gigantic and Friends A: Opaque black, creme head, some lacing. N: Yeast, cocoa, a bit of sugary grape, touch of vanilla, big coffee and chicory, and roasty overall. T: Bitter and sweet, in a rather unhealthy proportion. M: Medium body, creamy carbonation, alcohol is hidden. O: Less than impressive Baltic Porter. Three Musketeers is far superior; I don’t know why they chose to make this more of a stout.

madelfonatree (24) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 12, 2015
Look - Dark and thick like coffee. Good lacing even in plastic cup. Creamy tan head with thick bubbles throughout. Smell - Tootsie Roll. Taste - Coffee, dark chocolate, burnt toast. Sweet bubblegum hits just before the finish and sticks around on the finish. Hint of smoke, not a camp fire. Feel - Creamy and not too watery. Doesn’t explode as much as other beers. Overall - Great Baltic Porter from 3 Floyds. Unlike other porters it definitely differentiates from a stout.

rdixon77 (1410) - Georgia, USA - MAR 14, 2015
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 (5177) - 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.

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.
