JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 2, 2013
750ml from Samís, Durham. Deep discount, baby! Dark brown, thick like a liquefied Tootsie Roll. Medium silky head, modest carbonation. Nose is sharp, with booze and molasses complementing base chocolate notes. Is this even lagered? Not sure, but itís a pretty tasty imperial porter tilted towards the bitter end of the spectrum but with slight milk chocolate, caramel, and dark fruit.

emacgee (3963) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Rich and viscous piceous black pour with two fingers of crackling dark tan head. Toasted wood and bitter chocolate in the nose, notes of burnt sugar and black strap molasses. Big and rich flavor, bitter chocolate and dark fruit skins with a touch of acidity. Molasses and caramel, lightly roasty with a touch of wood on the finish. Medium to full bodied. Nice

Black pour with a small foamy light tan head. Aroma has some bourbon notes with a bit of dark cocoa and a caramel notes. The flavor is rich and smooth with some sweet caramel flavors, dark cocoa, light oaked bourbon, some wood, and more caramel cocoa tones. Really tasty and big with caramel and chocolate bourbon notes.

dmac (3901) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 3, 2013
750ml c&c bottle from Canalís EHT. Poured a deep black body with an average sized beige foamy head. Aroma is okay, sort of dusty, notes of vanilla beans, dry chocolate powder, some chocolate swyrup, wet dark toast, burnt malts, wood and some bourbon. Palate is okay, foamy body with a medium mouthfeel. Flavor of dry chocolate, light vanilla, some wood, hint of bourbon, dry dark toast. Overall meh, expected more from Crooked Line series.

ClubGonzo (3869) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle. Pours a pitch black body with a massive light beige rocky head of considerable longevity. Aroma is cold coffee, leather, licorice, hints of freshly cut grass, dark berries and pine. Taste is coffee, pine, licorice, leather and hints of dark malts, dark berries and milk chocolate. Full body, soft to medium carbonation. Although a bit off the regular style profile for a Baltic Porter as far as Iím concerned, a pleasant porter from Uinta all in all.

drfabulous (3842) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Overpriced bottle at Freakin Frog. Slight chocolate to this porter. But aroma doesnít give off chocolate so much as something else. Slight roast. Creamy.

IrishBoy (3805) - Bakersfield, California, USA - APR 10, 2013
750ml bottle from Imbibe Wine. Nose is chocolate, vanilla, with hints of roast, bourbon, and coconut. Black with a big, heavy lacing beige head. Flavor is peppery, light bitterness and sweetness, with a very light bit of bourbon. Good but not great as the barrel characteristics are not very pronounced.

ben4321 (3784) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Location: Bottle at Nerd Beer Epic Weekend, 1/26/13

Aroma:†The nose is roasted mats, bourbon, toast, brown sugar, molasses, and a hint of chocolate
Appearance: It†pours a dark brown color with a light brown head and some drippy lace
Flavor:†It has a dry, malty flavor with plenty of roast, and noticeable but not overpowering bourbon
Palate:†The body is mid-full, it has an average carbonation, mild heat, and a dry, roasty finish
Overall Impression:† This one works quite nicely. Thereís noticeable bourbon in the right balance with plenty of malt. It isnít super sweet thanks to some dry, roasty components. Overall, this one is quite good.

Butters (3733) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Dark near black pour with ring of brown head. Nose is slightly boozy and a hint vegetal. Roasty and toasty and vanilla notes. Really smooth and chocolately. Smooth and velvety, but not overly chewy or thick. Perfect mouthfeel for a porter. Really enjoyed this.
