arkurzynski (1771) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle courtesy of the in-laws. Thanks! Deep brown, almost black with light khaki head. Aroma is roasted malt, cocoa powder, bakers chocolate, and light sweet pine. Flavor is a rich, complex mixture of roasted malt and coffee, cocoa, semi-sweet chocolate, light vanilla, and mild pine bitterness. Plenty of cocoa, chocolate, and roast malt/coffee in the finish. A bit of dark fruit. Thinner on the palate than expected. More of an imperial porter than a Baltic porter feel. Delicious.

ryecatcher (994) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Bomber. Pours an opaque almost black color with a thick, mocha colored head. Nose is roasty. Mouth is medium-thick, silky. Lots of coffee and and cocoa, hint of toffee too along with some dates and raisins and a bittersweet finish. Sllght warmth, but the 9% really isn’t that noticeable. Another fine offering from Los Tres Floydo’s Cerveceria.

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2012 Don’t know much about this brew. It looks and smells like an oak aged porter - very minimal head with little retention; oak aged spice smell and taste. This is the best porter I’ve had, hands down, due to the incredible complexity and richness. I can definitely perceive the baltic character (though I do not know how to describe it exactly) - there are dried dark fruit notes, toasted caramel, some alc, and sweetness from all listed. There is also a stable coffee bean and chocolate character. Great balance that brings new aspects to light with each sip. (4.5) 2nd tasting: Not nearly as impressed as I was the first time. Has an odd soda pop flavor that greats the mouth. I am also not getting any oak aging characteristics. (3.2)

Gooney (389) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 27, 2012
22 oz bottle from brewery - beautiful black pour. Strong aromas of coffee and roasted grain. You can feel the kick right away. This is a really good beer. Perhaps it wasn’t the best choice for a tailgate beer, but I wasn’t going to complain.

Palme (3603) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 2, 2012
On tap @ Copenhangen Beer Celebration. A deep brown one with a small quickly sidesticking head. Lots of cold coffee on the aroma, caramel sweet, some chocolate paper also. A bit low on the aroma perhaps? Not sure, lets taste! Yeah, lovely texture, almost cloudy actually with a average carbonation level. More cold coffee, chocolate paper, cocoa, some licorice and sweet malts in the flavor. Ends light mouthdrying with a hint of smoke. Again a tasty one from the 3 brothers. 12.05.2012

Scopey (8824) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2012
Tap at CBC, May 2012. It pours very dark ruby, with a medium beige head. The nose is charcoal, roasted malt, smoke, wood and a hint of dark fruit. The taste is roasted malt, charcoal, slight smoke, caramel, meatiness, burnt malt and wood, with a dry-roasty finish. Medium-full body and moderate carbonation. Well-hidden alcohol. An easy drinking Baltic Porter, if a little bit unexciting.

ESBob (379) - Indiana, USA - JUN 6, 2012
On Tap at Trion in New Haven. Pours a deep brown, almost black. Brownish head. Aroma is roast malt and some toffee notes. Tast is dominated by medium to dark roast malts, but that toffee comes thru as it warms. Quite the nice porter!
