Black with a large tan head. Aroma is chocolate with a slight bit of earthiness. Flavor is chocolate with a bit of spice, somewhat reminiscent of a mole sauce. Very warming with a nice bittersweet finish. Wife: 4.6

Chocolate brown with ruby tones and well sustained ashen tan foam leaving lace. Aromas of booze, vanilla, smoke, and some dark berry. Gently bittersweet with slightly smokey finish. Medium bodied but holds pretty well as it warms. I’ve been sitting on it for about 4 months.

An old beer, bottled in 2013. A little rough and musky, but still tasty. Good malt still coming through.

On draft. Appearance: deep brown and opaque, nearly black, with a moderate light brown foam head. Aroma: Pleasant mix of chocolate, vanilla, dark cherries, and a light roasted coffee. Taste: Deep, rich toasty chocolate, molasses, and vanilla up front, giving way to a pleasantly light roast character and sharp but not overpowering hop bitterness. Mouthfeel: Moderate body, with light carbonation, and a warming alcohol bite on the back end. Finish: Bitterness and roast helps balance the strong sweetness of this beer, with a lingering chocolate and roast character. Overall: Really pleasantly surprised that the bourbon barrel aging added complimentary flavors instead of overpowering. Vanilla flavors help balance the chocolate and roast. Chocolate malt dominates the flavor profile as it should. Walks a fine line compared to an imperial stout, but this fits the style. Well done.

nuplastikk (4852) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 17, 2015
750ml thanks to Elise. Bottled November 2013, opened February 2015..I was a little bit worried about how it would hold up. Thankfully, it has done fine. Wow. Sublime. Easy drinking for the ABV, though you know in the warm sweet aftertaste their is some respectable alcohol. Smooth chocolate tones. This is pretty much an optimum Baltic Porter, with the vanilla bourbon tones throwing it over the top. Creamy, smooth on the palate. This really hit the spot. Great beer. Doughy brown chocolate.

Stuedmaster (285) - Vista, California, USA - FEB 13, 2015
This is a solid offering from Uinta, one of the better porters I’ve had. Bottled on 10-28-13. Pours black with a nice tan head that starts thick and quickly thins out with decent lacing. Nose is chocolate, roasted malt, bourbon, oak, vanilla, slight smoke. Has a medium body and a very well balanced, complex flavor. Has a lively feel on the tongue, the hops are kind of spicy and the overall feel is dry yet very flavorful, slightly sour but plenty sweet. The oak, bourbon, and vanilla notes are especially nice, with slight licorice, raisin, and earthy tones. Highly recommended.

J_man (750) - Tustin, California, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Dark chocolate, cola and charred wood in the aroma. Although it appears black, it’s actually a beautiful crystal clear dark brown and mahogany color with a very foamy medium tan head. All of the aromas show up in the flavor with the cola being pronounced which is perfect for a porter. There’s a nice licorice bite and an acrid burnt bitterness that balances out a mild sugary vanilla sweetness. The body is appropriately on the thin side with a bit of creaminess around the edges. The dry bitterness lays down on the tongue and stays there but not in an overwhelming way. The 8% ABV here is almost completely hidden which makes this dangerous. Finishes light and dry with a lasting bitterness and bittersweet/dark chocolate flavor. Excellent Baltic porter.

A very good Baltic porter all around. Pours a thick black with a creamy tan head. Smells of vanilla, cinnamon and chocolate. Taste has lots of vanilla ice cream, with some chocolate coming in later. Some oak in the finish. Delectable. Had in the bottle.

Flaska från SB. Svart brun färg med stor smutsbrun skumkrona. Doft av mörk choklad, vanilj och ekfat. Söt fyllig kropp med lite vinkaraktär. Framträdande smak av choklad och ekfat. Lite rökig avslutning.

glennmastrange (2359) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2015
Bottle. Moderate toasted and dark chocolate for he malt, light herbs and earth for the hops and yeast, with hints of wood, charcoal and vanilla. Head is small, frothy turning wispy, khaki with fair lacing and good legs, and is mostly diminishing. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts faintly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, slick, with a soft to lively carbonation. A plenty bold but still easy to drink Baltic Porter.
