Grumbo (1367) - Ipswich, Suffolk, - JAN 20, 2013
Bottle from Rasputin’s, 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.

obguthr (5652) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 16, 2016
Bready stewed apple, dates, and raisins nose, hints of walnut. Cloudy brown, thin tan head. Raisins and dates, figs, wheat bread. Figs and plums are especially pronounced in the finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Paler and fruitier than most examples of the style. Drinks more like a belgian dubbel.

rayaron (1393) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - FEB 27, 2016
Bottle sample. Hazy brownish-red with medium beige head. Sweetish aroma with notes of nuts, prune and dried fruits. Very sweet flavor with lots of nuts, dulce de leche and dried fruits, a bit alcoholic. Gritty texture, full-bodied.

altonbrownd (5657) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - FEB 26, 2016
Bottle from Perfect Pour. Nice dark brown body with medium head. Nose is roasty and toasty. Taste of malts, caramel, brown sugar. Alcy. Decent enough.

visionthing (4800) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 31, 2016
50cl bottle from somewhere in Vilnius, probably Rimi. Pours clear mahogany with an off-white head. Malty aroma with heavy caramel notes, dark dried fruit and hints of alcohol. Sweet, almost cloying, too much caramel for my taste, but fairly drinkable. Fair enough.

BuckeyeBoy (5988) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 28, 2016
500ml bottle picked up at tres bonne. Pours out a deep mahogany topped with a small tan head. nose is heavy sweet milk chocolate caramel and roast malts. The taste is more of the heavy sweetness rich malts and a odd metallic note on the end. Well happy to say this is my first Lithuania tick.

stevoj (3943) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 20, 2015
Bottle from Tres Bonne Cuisine. A bit musty, sweet malt that obliterates any of the roast grain nature, making it closet to a dark lager. Dark brown pour with miniscule head. Mostly sweet malts in aroma and taste, but bottle dating is obscured, so can’t tell if it’s past shelf life. My gut says possibly....still not horrible, but a disappointing porter.

TorbenJensen (1457) - Valby, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2015
Beautiful dark brown beer with a welcoming persistent foam. Trying to look like a porter, but it did not quite succeed. Tastes like an average dark lagers without major fluctuations. An ok beer, just not contain the greatest taste.

Eructoblaster (3844) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 7, 2015
On tap at Grand Duke’s (Summit, IL). Hazy, dark brown body with a thin, off-white foaly head. Decent malty aroma with hoppy and brown sugar hints. Taste carries brown sugar, plummy, and woody notes. Ends with a decent bittersweet finish. Not bad.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 7, 2015
Again, my grateful thanks to Cantabrian for this experience. This porter was sampled after a distinctly more muscular Baltic Porter and suffered because of it. It appears a hazy dark caramel with a temporary brownish head and aromas more dwelling on that caramel than its predecessor’s oil, salt and cocoa. The body was thinner and had, guess what, caramel to the flavour but was not unpleasant. Its finish was sweetish. An altogether different beast.

mabuzzer (570) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - MAY 15, 2015
500ml bottle. Deep reddish brown with a fizzy tan head that quickly disappeared. Aroma is alcohol and caramel, taste is sweet, dark fruit, caramel and a little liquorice. Good, but not great
