tjthresh (1871) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - MAY 5, 2005
16.9 Fl. Oz. Best Before 26.09.05 Awesome. Poured with a nice long lasting beige head. Started at about an inch then faded to 1/4 in. Clung to the sides of the glass. Dark brown with garnet highlights. Aroma: Dark chocolate, rasins, and caramel. No hops. All malt baby. Alcohol. Taste: Reminds me a lot of one of the Reisen candys. Subtle sweetness, with some dark chocolate and coffee. Some hop bitterness. Very easy to drink. Palate: Med-full body. Carbonation level give a very mouth-fillng sensation. Overall: Outstanding nightcap. I think I may start keeping a couple of these around the house. At 7%, its just enought to enjoy the full pint and give you that sleepy feeling.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAY 2, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2008 [bottle - 500 ml] Dark black pour with a thick tan head. Very opaque. Smells like burnt chocolate and malts with a touch of spice and a bit of hop bitter. The taste begins with a burnt flavor that goes to a smooth malty middle and a slightly dry and cardboardy aftertaste. The alcohol is very warming and apparent. All around decent porter.

Pours black, with a small off-white head. Not a bad porter, though it does has that "strained through cardboard" aftertaste endemic to many Russian beers. Definitely has a strong kick to it. I can imagine myself drinking this at a kiosk on Nevsky Prospekt.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 29, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2005 (Bottle 50 cl) Completely black and opaque. Small, dense light-brown head. Extremely burned notes, dry and very aromatic - spicy. A very solid Porter with lots of character and alcohol. Excellent. 210704

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 19, 2005
In the pint bottle. Pours a reddish brown black color with a light brown head. Little or no aroma. Something of a smoked salmon flavor with decent chocolate overtones. A fairly decent mid-range body.

Nice baltic porter-I like porters a bit roastier, but its very smooth and great for the price.

Dorqui (2232) - Brescia, ITALY - APR 7, 2005
Creamy foam but not much persistent one. Dark brown color, nearly black. Much dense and impenetrable. Discreet scent, detaches scents of coffee and bitter chocolate. Dry and lightly fizzy taste, much bitter. Burnt wood and smoke are perceived in the end.

biz82 (1327) - austin, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2005
Deep, dark red, almost black with a loose thick tan head. Aroma of chocolate, raisen, some wet cardboard, a little vanilla. Good body, extra clean and smooth with a light but lingering chocolate with a little licorice finish. Delicate roast and dark fruit flavor. Quite nice.

csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - APR 5, 2005
16.9oz bottle. 62 out of the cellar. Served in a pint glass. Dark brown/black color with red tints and a small tan head. The aroma is roasty with some definate fruitness coming from the hops. Smells good, but a bit weak. The taste is roasty malt that transitions into a nice hops flavor with a touch of bitterness. The hops taste citrusy. The finish is dry and roasty, with an almost espresso quality. It seems to lack the lactic flavor that seems to be present in most baltic porters, instead it seems like a regular american porter with a good helping of hops. The mouthfeel is big, but not too big, and is about average for the style. This is a good beer that blows its sibling, #4, out of the water.
