Black appearance, but not very dense or thick. You can see through the edges a bit in the light. The head is thin, with a tan foam that settles leaving a pencil thin ring. The nose has a faint roastiness, with suggestions of caramel and toffee.
The flavor balances nicely between toffee sweetness and roasted chocolate malts. I’m getting a bit of vanilla as well, and the finish leaves a keen bitterness on the tongue. The alcohol seems quite mild, and I’m trying to figure out how this qualifies as a Baltic Porter. The mouthfeel has just the right degree of thickness, with a sharp carbonation that holds up well.
Overall I’m glad this was recommended to me. It’s a fairly robust porter with good depth of flavor and supreme drinkability. Definitely a nice change from the typical American style porters that are so common. Highly recommended. knasputte78 (661) - SWEDEN - JUL 31, 2015
Svart med litet skum. Kaffe, malt med en lätt känsla. Inte så fyllig utan lite för lätt

Svart, men litt lys kommer gjennom i kantene. Nesten fraværende skum. Lakris, kaffe og noe kjeks i duften. Lakris og kaffe også i smaken sammen med en fin bitter avslutning. Også litt portvin i avslutningen. Litt tynn avslutning. chrisv10 (18734) - DENMARK - JUL 16, 2015

Bottle from Boise Coop. Right in the wheelhouse for a classic porter. Dark, sweet and malty, pour has nice fluffy head which leaves streaky lacing. Nose is sweet malt, leading into flavors of molasses, peat and sweet malts. Classic porter. Ktwse (5677) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2015

29th May 2015: on-tap as Carlsberg Carnegie Baltic Porter at the Seal Beach Beachwood BBQ bar. Coffee flavoured dark brew with a bitter bite towards the finish. Semi-sweet in the mouth it gets drier and more bitter in the aftertaste. Decent.
