Bottle - 750mL corked and caged. Black pour with a tall, dense, frothy brown head. Roasted malt, soft vanilla, hints of chocolate, burnt caramel, dark fruit notes and toasted grains in the nose. Taste is big chocolate, roasted malt, soft coffee, vanilla, caramel, toasted grains, soft booze and notes of dark fruit. Body is medium-full with a dense carbonation and mild stickiness. Soft warmth as well. Ends with more chocolate, roasted malt, dark fruit, light booze, vanilla, and light coffee. Tasty!

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.

This corked and caged bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy finely sized brown colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The mild aroma was dark malt. The mildly vinous mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a biting mild roasted malt aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of black malt roasted malt wood dark malt and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

kramer (4686) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 3, 2013
Tap. Pours a clear very dark brown body with a small Duffy dark brown head that retained as a thin film. The nose is rich and roasty with some chocolate, coffee, and licorice. A light bit of alcohol, but pretty minimal. The flavor is sweet and licorice laced with a chocolaty finish and some light roast. A slight kick of alcohol on the finish, but the sweetness really mutes it. Medium bodied and slightly sticky from the residual sweetness, soft gentle carbonation. Pretty solid Baltic Porter. One of the better beers in the Crooked Line series.

JaBier (4528) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAR 12, 2013
Bottle sample at the Uinta tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 2/7/13. Darkest brown in color with a thick tan head. Aroma of brownies, roast and oak. Malty, chocolatey and roasty flavor with a bit of sourness before a roasty finish.

750 ml bottle from Dutch’s. Pours a dark brown to black color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have soy, an almost briny note, roasted malt, ash, powdery chocolate, dark fruit and only a mild kick from thebbarrel. I almost forgot that it was barrel aged. Good, but not great.

750 ml bottle to oversized snifter (shared with the Mrs.; thanks douglas88). Looks good; black with foamy beige head. Smells of semi-sweet malt and booze with some bitterness. Tastes like it smells, only better, with notes of chocolate. Good on the palate. Good stuff!

Had quite awhile back, I guess I forgot to rate it. This is a thick beer with a nice roast and bite, and not too sweet. Really quite tasty.

ChainGangGuy (4280) - Marietta, 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?
