jercraigs (9681) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2015
2015-08-26. Back body with a small tan head. 3+ Aroma of dusty dry malt, light roast and herbal notes. Flavour is interesting, dark malt, light herbal licorice touch, moderate dusty dark malt. Average plus bodied palate, good carbonation. Solid but the base malt is not quite rich enough for my taste today. Bottle cellared several months from Ye Old Spirit Shop, Frederick, MD.

Overheard: "What’s a snozzcumber, exactly?"
"snozzBERRY... not cucumber."

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 11, 2013
750ml bottle, shared. Black color, good thin light brown head, leaves great full lace. Some chocolate, toasted malts, maybe some tobacco in the nose. Lightly smokey, toasty flavor. Again with the herbal, and tobacco notes. A bit less heavy on the dark fruit than other baltic porters can be, and I personally prefer that. Good roasty malts, solid bitterness, light sweet. Nice roasty chocolate aftertaste, just a hint of dark fruit, good light bit of smoke. Bigger body, smooth lighter carbonation, dry finish. Influence from bourbon barrel is subtle - not immediately obvious, but vanilla and wood flavors are noticeable. though no boozy heat. A nice balance. I think this is well done.

slowrunner77 (9661) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 4, 2014
"Solid brew as are most of this crooked line. Barrel faint at first especially in the nose but it opens up well. Only fault is a little prickliness and slight overcarbonation. Dark fruits, roasted malt and barrel are well balanced and tasty. Nothing is really quite a 9, but there are a couple 8.5’s so there ya go."

DuffMan (9284) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 17, 2013
On tap @ Public House in Vegas. Very dark brown with mahogany highlights. Meaty broth malty nose with seductive bourbon sweetness. The palate opens sweeter than expected, given the nose: vanilla, light smoke, sweet figs, molasses, bread crusts. Made me pay attention in a good way! Awesome!

phaleslu (9255) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Draft at Keystone - Clifton. Pours a deep coffee brown with a finger of tan head that leaves heavy spots of lace. Aroma of milk chocolate, dust, oak, vanilla, fudge, and toast. Some booze as it warms. Flavor of chocolate, leaves, vanilla, earth, oak, roast, and booze that’s not clearly defined as bourbon. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry mouthfeel. Very subtle bourbon barrel influence.

arminjewell (9237) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Pour out of 750 mL bottle, cork opened with a pop. Thick black pour with creamy tan, aroma brought notes of nice cocoa powder, vanilla, bourbon, and lots of oak come through, some coffee, roast, hints of slight caramel, toffee, and molasses, hints of dark fruits, and some slight smoke but pretty restrained. Taste is a mix of sweet caramel, toffee, lots of dark fruits and anise, hints of roast, slight bourbon, lots of dry oak, there is a slight smoke note in there that manifests as it opens up, finishing fairly sweet, slightly bitter. Interesting brew, one of the better in the series for sure.
