Grumbo (525) - Suffolk, - JAN 20, 2013
Bottle from Rasputinís, Ipswich. Distinct treacle aroma on opening, pours a very deep ruby brown with a good head. Caramelised, quite thick and rich. Some carbonation, though head soon disappeared. Quite strong at 6.8% which comes through as you drink.

Bottle at home from early backlog notes 07/08. At the time one of my first Baltic Porters. Pours brown in color with a small khaki colored head. The aroma and flavor have light roast, grainy, sweet malts, milk chocolate, some dark fruit with a hint of earthy bitterness. Thin and watery. Iíve never had this again.

Bottle from Catonsville Lithuanian Festival. Pours hazy reddish copper with a fizzy off white head. Tastes very malty and nutty, with hints if sweet caramel and roasted grains. Very easy to drink. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet roasted malt, caramel, toffee, and light raisin.

sonnycheeba (3303) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle from a Lithuanian festival. Pours murky tawny brown with creamy beige head. Aroma is toasted and bready malts, caramel and toffee notes, light floral notes, and dark fruit sweetness. Flavor is dry malts forward, some toast, light caramel/burnt sugar, and some raisin and prune esters; dry finish with some bitterness buried below the surface. Medium body and carbonation.

kerenmk (2162) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at our place. Thanks TomL. Clear brown. Syrupy aroma, grade B maple syrup, date honey. Sweetish maltiness and dried dark fruit in the mouth. Medium body, smooth texture. Nice. A little too sweet but works just fine.

Cantabrian (776) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 14, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2014 Interesting beer. Iíd never have called it a porter, least a baltic one, had I only seen it on the glass. Red/copper with a thin, light brown bubbly head. Aroma of malts and karamels, plenty of dark honey and a nice touch of cherries. Flavour is very sweet, I wouldnít say cloying, to disagree with the vast majority of beer raters here, with caramels, Waldhonig, apricots, dulce de leche, some berry cordial - very bubble gum-like - and a touch of booze. Nothing remarkable about the palate. Itís more of a honey ale than a baltic porter, in the end. I like the ale feel and the absence of the skunky Dunkel taste as in the Baltika 6. Having said that, and given the outdated label and the recent absence of this beer internationally, I would not be surprised if this was a bottle from an older batch that has been mellowed with time. I have rated it regardless of style. This beer completes my meagre porter ring around the Baltic sea. As an antipodean enthusiast of Baltic Porters, I must say that although I was very impressed with beauties from Poland, Finland, Denmark and Sweden, I was not too enthusiastic about each of the classic representatives of the three so-called Baltic Countries. Looking forward to try some of their other issues.

Bottle. Clear amber-brown with a small yellow-beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, chocolate, toffee and alcohol. Sweet with coffee, dried fruits, chocolate, licorice flavors and alcoholic warmth. Medium-bodied, a bit sticky on palate. Quite nice.

Caramel and raisins. Actually, this is a lot like eating burnt raisins soaked in alcohol. Quite boozy. Not much else.
