hotstuff (4729) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Rated on 9-14-2013 at Fort Wayne, IN RateBeer gathering (Corked and caged bottle and bottled on 11/27/2012). The appearance is a small head with a lengthy retention, opaque dark brown body and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is lightly roasted, malt, chocolate, dark fruits, and some alcohol. The flavor is dark fruits, chocolate, malt, and alcohol. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. A most quaffable sipping beer that would make for a good cold weather beer. It is a beer worth trying.

TimE (4703) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 18, 2013
Pitch black color. Hazelnut dark fruit, chocolate and vanilla in the nose. Very rich, lots if dark fruit, plums, port, vanilla beans, chocolate and a splash of brandy in the mouth. Very nice and rounded. Very warming finish that feels like taking down fudge soaked in vanilla. Fantastic beer, not sure if so authentic to style but totally awesome. Never had a Baltic porter like this.

ChainGangGuy (4691) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAR 3, 2013
750ml bottle - $12.99 at Bullock’s Wine & Spirits in Marietta, Georgia.

Bottled On: 11/21/12.

Appearance: Pours an onyx black body with an initially tall, tan head, though it collapses fairly soon.

Smell: Fudge, carob chips, flecks of charred malt. Then, some vanilla and oak from the barrel. Light, leafy touch from the hops. Hint of foiled dark fruits, a bit of musty, funkiness cut from razor thin sniffs of alcohol.

Taste: Bittersweet chocolate, carob, and some slightly burnt malt hinting at espresso start. Medium-light sweetness. Slight, somewhat subtle vanilla and oaken elements from the barrel treatment. There’s a very, very light but noticeable funkiness for me, giving it a faintly sourish backing. Soiled dark fruitiness. Mild hop character, very low bitterness. Warming, chary, chocolaty finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-plus carbonation, initially. Smooth, as it glides across the tongue, but there’s ample suds all the same (initially, at least).

Overall: A decent sipper. I think I like it. I think?

ajnepple (4661) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 8, 2014
750 ml corked and caged, bottled about 15 months ago and poured into my NBB globe glass, from Evergreen Discount. Black appearance with a lasting brown head, light lacing. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, oak, toasted malts, caramel/toffee, earthy and light bourbon. Similar flavor, rich, dark, malty and lightly roasted with medium sweetness. Medium body with a creamy feel and flat carbonation.

Cybercat (4637) - Georgia, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Pours a deep, warm sable just a whisker above black with a fairly thick and somewhat persistent tan head. Aroma tempts with notes of licorice, vanilla and chocolate and a hint of bourbon. Flavor fills the mouth with vanilla, licorice, coffee, chocolate and bourbon tones. Firm texture is fairly fizzy, a little thicker than most porters I have tried. After a couple of these you’ll feel as if you’re at sea.
