Gurst (338) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAR 16, 2008
Dark and rich. A note of coffee plays nicely with its little cousin burnt toast. A bit hoppy towards the end, but the aftertaste comes in with just bread and alcohol.

Good but not outstanding. Black in color, coffee, and chocolate on the nose. Taste follows with these flavors and that of roasted malt.

SeanMacGC (334) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 20, 2009
Bottle, 500 ml. Pours a flat opaque, but rather appealing dark mahogany. Not too much on the nose, and quite rounded on the palate, somewhat reminiscent of a doppelbock.

foduck (330) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 9, 2007
Pretty damn good porter.. although its my first Baltic porter so I dont have much experience with the style. Nice roasted flavor and body. Big brown head. Could drink a few of these..

Bigsilky (327) - Charleston, USA - DEC 2, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2009 A lager yeast fermented porter. The nose a touch of sweetened Cuban coffee and no hops to speak of. ANise kissed toffee adornes the palate in a very soft fashion that leaves a defined sweetness in its wake. Balanced enough, a little sweet for some. A favorite of mine, especially for the price. Although I like this beer all year long, is nice to have a dark strong porter that can be enjoyed when the weather is warmer. 90

gsteph (324) - knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 26, 2004
Pours deep black with tan head with good density. Aromas of coffee, malt, fruit and chocolate. Flavors are similar with roasted malt, strong coffee, slightly smokey with a bitter finish. Thin mouthfeel with a little bite on the back of the tongue. Overall it is a tasty brew with good malt and hop balance. Coffee aftertaste hangs around a little long though.

rmasa (324) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAR 7, 2010
Pours virtually black with small tan head; typical toasted caramel aroma holds some cocoa notes also; medium body, a bit sticky mouthfeel; quite roasty and dry, not that sweet for a baltic porter, flavor with light bitterness; licorice aftertaste, though, is both salty and sweet, which is actually pretty nice combination. Still it doesnt save this baltic porter from being mostly pretty darn boring.

CaptBier (323) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - DEC 12, 2009
A black beer with a very small brown head, that disappears very fast. The aroma is sweet with notes of licorice - no smoke, like Id expect from a Porter. The flavor is mild at first, then a slightly smokey sweetness hits you - then it becomes watery and finally it ends on an OK bitter note.

Velkyal (321) - Gordonsville, Virginia, USA - SEP 27, 2010
Whilst not the strongest Baltic Porter by any means in terms of alcohol, at 7% ABV, this is certainly one of the sweetest and most cloying. I also think the lack of carbonation helped to make it feel almost like watered down treacle. As Goldilocks might have put it, this one is too sweet!

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2015 "Must try beer", even if you are not a fan of the monster brew companies. Very complex, almost black. The only one beer with the taste of the sea and that is exactly the taste of some north sea. Let us say: Baltic Sea. Also: sophisticated leather taste. Very special and very different .
