3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Looks like coffee with a rich brown color with a thin brown head. Aroma and taste are both coffee with a rich treacle edge. Well done, and not really what I expected from a BP. $3.5/16oz

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pretty damn good, actually. Pours black with mocha head and some lacing. Smells of heavy roast malt - very robust aromas of coffee as well. The anise flavours are light here but then again the last beer I had was basically a twizzler bomb. Palate finishes on the light side with a little bitterness. Soft carbonation. Creamy texture. Tall can from Strathcona Liquor in Victoria.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From 500 ml can, it pours a solid black with a thin tan head. Carbonation is very lively - more like a soda than a beer esp a porter. Aromas of aniseed, sarsparilla, roasted malt, and a touch of smoke. The taste is much the same, with aniseed definitely to the fore, though some black coffee also comes through. Thereís a bit of a mineral character at the end, probably due to the carbonation. Quite a clean finish. Not bad, but a bit weird, and Iím not sure it all works together.

Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Thick black ruby pour with a slim foamy tan head. Easy drinking but quite complex. Rich chewy dark. Burnt chocolate covered raisins. Chocolate molasses. Juicy black notes. Black jelly beans. Thick and deep. Not really similar to other Baltic Porters Ive had but very nice.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can shared thanks to Tim and Rachel! Pours a translucent brownish black with thin off-white head that sticks nicely. Aroma is toasted malt and soy, taste is like a soy flavored colds with a touch of coffee. Was expecting a bit more, not bad but not great. Almost has a Belgian yeast flavor.

Thanks Tim and Rachel! Cola pour with a frothy white head. Aroma of dry light roasted malts and and brown sugar. Flavor is very cola like with touches of vanilla and spice. Fairly bland and one dimensional.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Chocolate colored body with ample foamy milk chocolate cover. Thick, deep roastiness with a vein of anise/black licorice that melds to contribute an enjoyable depth and complexity. Rough roasty body. It definitely has unrefined edges to it, but that adds a high seas boldness to it. The body seems a tad thin, and this is more akin to an imperial stout/imperial porter than a Baltic Porter, but regardless of style, this is a substantial and at least somewhat memorable brew. "Uncommon" would not be too far off as descriptors go.

16 oz can poured a clear dark reddish brown with a lasting tan head. Aromas of coffee, licorice, roasted malt and light fruittiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a smooth dry finish. Flavors of roasted malt, coffee, licorice, light bitter chocolate and a hint of vanilla with a smooth dry lingering roasty finish.

Poured from a can thanks to my sister. Pours dark with a tan head. Aroma of toffee, very clean. The flavor is woody, chocolate,.hint of coffee. There is a slight off note, but overall a well made beer.

Can. Pours black, thin tan head. Aroma is OK, flavor is a lot of pine... not a fan of this at all.
