Dark beer with a foamy brown head. Lots of chocolate in the nose. Flavors of chocolate, ripe fruit, raisin with some caramel sweetness and warming alcohol. Some oak and vanilla flavors. This is a smooth, rich beer.

bytemesis (3441) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Tap. Pours opaque black with a large brown head and nice lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee. Flavor is the same plus chocolate and a bit of wood, perhaps a touch of vanilla. Medium sweet, light bitter, light woody astringence. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. Nice, but not a lot of taste from the barrels

Cybercat (3440) - 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.

AirForceHops (3436) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 17, 2013
Draft @ The Ale House in Amesbury. Pitch black with lasting tan head that laced the tulip until finish. Aroma is chocolate, oak and light coffee. Taste is chocolate, vanilla and mild espresso notes. The oak is very light and subtle in this brew. Hints of molasses and sugar. Some burnt malts. Body is more on the full side with a drier smooth semi-sweet finish. It’s really good. Just falls short of being great. Well worth a try if you ask me. I would order this again in certain circumstances.

PhillyCraft (3393) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2013
On tap at Bottle Bar, pours pitch black with small white head, wasn’t lasting. Aromas of roast, light chocolate, hops. Taste of plum and other dark fruits, wood, roasted malts, bourbon and a fair amount of hops. Finishes a little bitter and def warming in the body.

TheEpeeist (3383) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2013
25.4 oz bottle. Dark brown with a thick and foamy tan head. Nose is chocolate, plum, molasses and oak. Rich and creamy with a sharp tang. Taste is milk chocolate, black walnut, caramel, earth, wood and faint bourbon. Satisfying, easy drinker.

Kinz (3347) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAR 15, 2013
On tap at Mekong. Poured black with a good very light tan head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, faint bourbon. Flavor is chocolate, espresso, vanilla, and more woodsy bourbon notes. Medium body, quite smooth on the palate. Nicely done baltic porter, and the bourbon aging gives it an interesting twist. Quite good.

TimE (3299) - 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.
