Pours a almost black with just a faint red. Aroma is of coffee and malt with some hops. Flavor is of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and a little smoke. trapped (3651) - New York, TURKEY - APR 19, 2016
Draught @ Tavern29. Brown with a reddish tint, small foamy off-white head, caramel/sour cherry aroma, high carbonation, slightly sweet caramel taste, thin body, medium caramel finish. Great texture and taste. Boutip (6554) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2016
Bottle: Poured a deep hazy brown color porter with a medium size dark brown foamy head with light retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of chocolate and deep caramelized malt with some residual sugar notes and bourbon notes. Taste is quite sweet with some residuals sugar notes, some chocolate notes and some vanilla and bourbon notes with light woody notes. Body is quite full with good carbonation and light warming alcohol notes. Not bad but a bit too sweet and cloying for my taste. nuplastikk (6471) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 11, 2016
Tap at Sidedoor. Brown-amber body. Steady, creamy, beige head. Chewy bourbon candy tones. This is quite nice. Harmonious mixture of Baltic Porter and barrel notes. Sweet caramel, brown malt. One of the better Abita beers I’ve had.

Bomber from Wine & Cheese. Pours dark copper with an off-white head. Aroma is rather dark fruit and darkish malt. Med + body. Flavor is darkish fruit and dark malt. It’s rather plummy. Far from dry, not a great deal of bitter. Sort of an earthy undertone. So, where’s the bourbon? Lightly pervasive. There’s a musty wood note. I’m thinking the barrels were old and used a lot before beer was put in them. And not used for bourbon lately. Still, it works. Heat? Finally thought of that. It’s present, but not a prob. This is a good thing. jercraigs (10921) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 17, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2016 2016-01-30. Very hazy brown body with a modest creamy beige head. 3++ Aroma of sweet bourbon, vanilla and caramel. 7+ Flavour is similar, sweet vanilla, caramel. Tasty, a bit overly sweet, does not really fit the porter style at all. Smooth medium bodied palate, moderate carbonation. 3+ 7/4/7/4/15+ Bottle shared by Radek.

Where and how: bottle 650 ml, tasting Sammy (12837) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 30, 2016
Aroma: fairly bold Bourbon feel, sweet sugars, caramel cola like. 6+
Top: tanned. lasting, rocky top, some lace.
Base: poured murky brown, far too pale for any rendering of Baltic Porters
Palate : medium bodied, fairly smooth, light carbonation.
Taste: frontal toffee and caramel with mid being accented by Bourbon barrel. Alcohol hidden behind sweetness.
other notes Baltic Porter only in name, bourbon barrel aged Irish ale perhaps?
Bourbon aroma. Dry and dark brown. Ok drinkability.aggressive finish a bit boozy. Jeremy’s bottle. mfhennig (286) - McHenry County, Illinois, USA - JAN 28, 2016
Cloudy reddish brown pour, frothy beige head that dies quickly, nice lacing. Bourbon aroma mostly. Moderately sweet. Texture is thin but creamy. This is the first Baltic Porter I’ve had, doesn’t look like the usual porter, color is wrong and it doesn’t taste like the usual porter. Solid brew, if you’re buying, I’m drinking.
