Love this f***ing beer. One of my favorites. -Pours a dark black, rose and burgundy in the light, tan to white creamy head dissipates quickly and leaves a bit of lacing. Aromas of raisin, date, paperclips, farmhouse, light chocolate. Licorice, grain, peanut, pistachio shell, metal, vine, and sexy sex on the tongue. Slightly watery mouthfeel, medium body, tingly in the cheeks, bold but subtle palette. Finish is half dry half wet, long remnant of nut and earthy grain, little beef. Rather warming, a solid porter. This is what I want when I want a porter.

There is some division in this household around this beer. Ones perfectly adequate, cheap, high ABV baltic porter is anothers "garbage water". While the merits of each opinion must lie in the beholders eye, one cannot disagree that this beer is pretty easy to come by (at least on the east coast, it can pop up in corner bodegas that have otherwise small selections) and the price is right (Ive purchased 16.9 oz bottles from $1.40 to $2 over the years). We do agree that it smells good and looks nice. The flavor is thick with burnt molasses and a long syrupy aftertaste. It tastes better the more you drink it, but it doesnt exactly beg you to chug it down either. Anyway, Its worth a shot if you see it around and like thicker beers like stouts and porters, but if youre not already a fan, this wont convert you.

Very flat, no carbonation. Heavy molasses and syrupy quality, even more as it warmed. Dark black to brown. Thick. Bottle

PorterPounder (7681) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2016
Portland, Or - Beaumont Market - 500 ml bottle. Sparkling, dark brown pour, bubbly, long lasting mocha head. Rich chocolate and molasses in the aroma. Bold flavor, anise seed, milk chocolate, some molasses. Mouthfeel is thinner than the flavor warrants.

Not the best baltic porter Ive had (my preference is for Smuttynoses version of the style), but this is still a pretty good beer. It pours dark brown with a fair amount of head. The aroma is not strong but its appetizing. Some anise, a little espresso, a faint bit of citrus. The flavor is coffee and sweet malt on the front, and it closes with some milk chocolate notes and a hint of cherries, kind of a Dr. Pepper thing that I often notice in Baltic porters and bocks. The high ABV is there in the flavor, but it isnt medicinal or synthetic. In my area this beer is inexpensive, which effects my overall score in a very positive way.

BeerRenter76 (869) - Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2016
Aromas of burnt coffee, and sharp dark chocolate notes. Flavors of burnt coffee, the dark chocolate and some nuttiness round out the taste. A unusual sweet flavor disappeared as it warmed, overall it was a pretty decent porter, and the price was pretty good. Originally rated on 11/25/08.

TEJA (2779) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2016
Sampled @ omhper, thanks. Bottle sampled 21:st of march 2015, bottle best before 2005. Lasting brown head. Clear dark red brown color. Fruity and madrification in the aroma. Big caramell taste. Low sweetness and a complex taste profile. Big body.

tfontana (859) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 9, 2016
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Manchester Wine & Liquors. Appearance is clear mahogany with light sparkle, 2-finger width light brown foamy head with decent retention and sudsy lacing. Aroma is dark chocolate, dark toast, hints of coffee and dark fruit. Taste is dark chocolate, dark fruit, mild European hop bitterness. Palate is full bodied with decadent creamy texture, soft carbonation and dark fruit/dark chocolate finish with late warmth in stomach. Overall, a nice beer that is sweet but not cloying and a silky mouthfeel. Nice.

gripweed57 (1458) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUL 29, 2016
500 ml bottle. Dark mahogany brown color. Moderate khaki colored head. Aroma has notes of cola and coffee. Big sweet roasted malt flavor. Notes of coffee and sweet cocoa. Midtaste brings a nutty cocoa melange reminiscent of Nutella. More like a sweet stout. A great value at $2.99 for a 500 ml bottle.

HighlanderOne (1275) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - JUL 29, 2016
Poured from bottle. Big aroma of coffee and chocolate malt. Good lookin - nearly stout black with lacing. Tasting huge amounts of mocha and chocolate with a trace of licorice, lactose, banana and a trace of booze and hops. If I didnt know better I would think this was a sweet stout. Probably too sweet for a porter. But I dont care - this is a tasty surprise.
