3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fizzy tan head over a deep mahogany body. Mid-bodied palate, my thoughts are this should be much thicker. Grapey, grainy, Saazy, fruity aroma. Flavor as above, a bit "dirty". ABV shows late w/ a more dominating fruity maltiness. This is a draught review... as I recall, the bottled version is more stable and in-tune to style. ~~~~~~~~~~~ A review from yesteryear found in a lost notebook. Pint at Victory Brewing, Downingtown, PA.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle - been in my cellar for .... 4 years? 5? Deep clear ruby-black, small fizzy off-white head. Aroma is - grape juice, soy sauce, alcohol and light roast. Taste - more soy, less grape, some light herbal bitterness - sadly a bit past its prime. Light body, decent carbonation, quick finish and a little papery. I REALLY should have had this sooner.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a thin head on a brown colored body.
The aroma is rich caramel, toffee and burnt wood. Really nice.
The taste is a wonderful mixture of mildly bitter dark chocolate, toffee, caramel and mild lemon bitterness.
The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation.

I had a Victory Baltic Porter at Sapsuckers on Long Island...not sure this is the same one, but the porter I had was aged in red wine barrels...you could taste the wine...a little boozy, with deep sweet, roasty malt...very complex, very good, but not for the faint of heart!!!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated on 6-14-2009 (Bottle) When poured, this beer forms a medium sized very fizzy tan head that mostly diminishes, mostly opaque dark brown body, one ring of lacing, and fizzy carbonation. The Aroma is chocolate, roasty malt, and fruity. The Taste is sweet, chocolate malt, roasty, spicy, and fruity. The Palate is oily and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this is a sipping beer, very tasty and worth trying.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a rather small head on it. Nose is front-loaded with some slightly sour dark fruit elements and just a little bit of roasting in there. Taste actually starts out just slightly sweet before descending into some roasted coffee and dark fruit flavors. Very smooth and drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured a deep brown with a nice foamy head. The head died down but the aroma didnít. Lots of biscuit malt, chocolate, and thick toffee. Light to medium body and a good mouthfeel. Sticky caramel flavors meld with the chocolate. Slight fruit and a lingering toasted finish.
