3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Reviewed from notes. This was received in a trade.
This was poured into a nonic pint glass and a snifter.
There wasnít any difference between the two glasses.
The appearance was a fairly decent dark brown to black color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute gracing the glass with some fairly nice clinging lacing in a spider web fashion.
The smell had a good about of licorice, light coffee, light milk chocolate with some booziness swirling around together underneath my nose.
The taste was sweet and boozy around the chocolate, coffee and alcohol. There was a light sticky boozy chocolate aftertaste and a dry coffee/chocolatey finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with more of a sipperís type of quality to it. The carbonation seemed fairly light, but thatís okay, its nothing that was bad.
Overall, what a nice Baltic Porter I would have again.

The beer is black with an inch of beige head. The aroma brings chocolate, molasses, dark fruit. Beautiful balance and delicious flavor. Alcohol is evident but gracefully masked. Rich and full bodied. Abundant chocolate, both dark and milk. Palate coating and viscous. Delicious.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber, bottled Dec 2012. Pours black with a small foamy head that quickly fades and leaves some minor webbing. Nice rich aroma of chocolate, coffee, currants, tobacco, cookie dough, and vanilla. Taste has some light chocolaty sweetness mixed with a strong, bitter roasted coffee. Lots of tobacco, raisins, cookies, currants. Delicious. Long bitter finish with a slightly spicy kick, not sure if thatís hops, rye, or something else. Thick body with a smooth creamy and oily mouthfeel. Awesome beer. I want to get another of these.

What a great beer. This brewery is doing things. Pours jet black with lasting creamy brown head. Aroma is cocoa, burnt toast, some herbal hoppiness, and light currants. Really great creamy thick and rich mouthfeel. Hugely drinkable for 10% because it isnt overly sweet. Awesome/.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From tap, CBC 2013. Beautiful black with a dense brown head. High malty, riasted, with notes of chocolate and licorice. Very smooth flavor, sweet and light bitter, with a lingering bitter, slightly salty finish and a creamy, velvety texture. Full body. Lovely.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark mahogany pour with a midnight core. Small latte head that diminished to a wisp and a ring. Nose is of cocoa, soy, vanilla, and dark fruit. Flavor filled with shoyu...Kikkoman through and through. Some brownie batter and fudge, but tons of briney qualities. Sticky and coating. Molasses, caramel, and salt-water taffy. An interesting take on a Baltic Porter.

Bottled on 2012-12-18. Black with a large creamy dark brown head. Vanilla, molasses/brown sugar, dark chocolate, roasted malt, coffee. Full body, syrupy texture, soft carbonation, heavy sweet and medium bitter, light acidic. Warming alcohol. Big and sticky, wears me out but fine in small amounts.
