Very earthy porter aroma with resin, chocolate powder, coffee bean oil and espresso. Pretty black appearance with a very thin brown lace. Bitter coffee punch upfront with decent chocolate, fudge, mocha, cocoa and carbonation. Overall, this is a well rounded porter. B rating.

Tap at Chucks Greenwood. Nice black pour, little head. Aroma of faint cocoa, faint roast, and wet dark malts. Flavor is wet chocolate up front, hints of burnt malts and licorice in the middle, and a nicely done sour from a Baltic Porter in the finish. Little hint of booze there in the end too. Good, not a standout.

16oz can in Seattle. Creamy, darkest brown with purple glow with nice foamy head. Very vinous and sweet, prune and fig, raisons. Big hit of licorice sweetness and anise spicing, not normally my thing but it works well in this beer. Quite nice balance and palate, drying bitter is a great finish to the sweetness (soy and licorice) up front. Nice

From a pint can shared on boxing day. Pours black with a tan head. Smoky coffee nose. Flavors of licorice and anise. Medium bodied, low carbonation and a bitter sweet roasty finish.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Appearance: medium dark brown, short, creamy medium tan head, minimal lacing and retention. Aroma: licorice, anise, chocolate, coffee, cardboard. Taste: strong roast, coffee, blast of syrupy licorice, but unsweet. Finish: slightly watery, with lingering roast and star anise. Notes: The licorice notes were prominent as advertised, but the palate of this was hardly worth the baltic porter moniker. Beer #14 of Beerdvent 2013.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz can. Dense black with one finger tan head. Aroma malt, licorice and roast. taste similar to aroma. Palate thinner than most Baltics Iíve tried. Roasty finish.
Essentially none of the sweetness I generally associate with this style. Iíd describe it as a roasty porter with some licorice. Just OK

16 ounce can from 41st street Liquor in Capitola. A great price at $2.25. Enjoyable brew with a nice chocolate and black licorice flavor. I want to try more beers from this brewery.

16oz can, uncommon is a good name for them, they are doing some oddball additions to their beers, most of them work pretty well and this is no exception, though I donít feel the addition gains much. Slightly smoky flavor with a decent anise punch that black licorice taste lingers and holds on.. not bad

Smooth tasting, foamy porter with an interesting licorice-like note to it; something herbal, too, perhaps. I like it! Very nice!
