tmoreau (2764) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2010
On tap at the brewpub, and served to a tulip with a black/brown hue, decent, dark tan head foam, and clingy waves of lacing. Initially, the aroma was resiny bitterness that lightly blanketed the remaining notes of smooth, roasted malt, cocoa, and coffee. The flavor was a more expressive version of the aroma notes, plus a touch of smoke, and hints of molasses and toffee. With a nice balance of malt and hop, and well hidden alcohol potency, the mouthfeel was full, rich, and creamy. This brew was the highlight of my visit.

On tap @ Mikkeller bar. Black body with a small beige head. Aroma of sweet, dark malt and fruit. Flavor is sweet, roasted malt, dry fruit, chocolate and bitter coffee. Very pleasant with a long and bitter finish.

omhper (20554) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2010
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Black, small head. Oaty coffee aroma. Mid-sweet with medium-full body and well rounded mouthfeel. Milk chocolat and coffee lingers until resiny hops comes to dominate the finish.

Draft. Pours pitch black with a tan head. Flavor is big on chocolate and coffee. Balanced, but I did not find it to be very complex.

dbarnold (1126) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - JUN 12, 2010
apparently a brewpub exclusive that I had at a sponsored tasting. Great stuff. I couldn’t tell you what a Baltic Porter is but I know I liked this beer a lot. Huge coffee nose, followed by a lot of coffee on the palate complemented by a lot of chocolate and dark fruit, as well as a little hop flavor. Great balance. If you can find it, get it.

larsga (6495) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2010
Medium beige head. Nearly opaque black body goes dark red at edges. Harmonic chocolatey coffee aroma with earthy pine needle notes. Dry-sweetish Belgian yeast profile and roasty chocolatey taste with floral earthy notes. Light body. Mild mouthfeel. Dry earthy funky chocolatey aftertaste with coffee and burnt grain notes. Outstanding. (0.25l draft, Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen.)

nimbleprop (5469) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 5, 2010
Sampled at the 3 Floyds event at the Brickskeller. Pours a lightly viscous, opaque black with a very cloudy, beige head. Aromas of roasted malts, light burnt toast, sweet, licorice. Flavor is sweet, toasted breads, raisin bread, dried fruits, licorice, light cherry. Full bodied, sweet finish. Brewing this with a lager yeast really let the malts shine through.
