On tap at Petrol Station. Pours a very dark brown with small off white head that diminishes quickly to nothing. The aroma is fruity malt and rye. Medium mouthfeel with a caramel malt and lingering dry finish. A good Baltic porter from Deep Ellum. Ratman197 (15224) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAY 12, 2013

Can shared by Dr Silverworm. Poured clear dark brown color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted malt and earthy aroma. Medium body with a dry smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium dark sweet flavor with medium dark sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid complex beer.

Sample at Kurtkeller 020: Stout-tastic 01 on 02/22/2015. The beer is a dark brown color with a medium beige head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing. the aroma consists of roast malt, chocolate and a bit of hops. Medium body with flavors of roasted malt, dark chocolate and mild coffee. The finish is roast malt up front with a mild earthy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

(Draught) Pours an opaque black body with a medium brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, anise, wet leather, and humidor. Flavor of smoke, toasted grain, lactose, wood, and baking cocoa. slowrunner77 (12594) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 27, 2014
Not seeing this as a baltic porter...or a stout. Kind of a strong brown, and a little bit of a let down. Light roast and hints of anise (if you work really hard) with a little coffee and chocolate. Not bad, but lacking the heartiness I like in BPs or stouts. phaleslu (10553) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 16, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2013 Baltic Porter, eh? This really comes across as an "Imperial Brown Ale", so I was curious to see what the style was. I had a draft sample at Schlafly’s Repeal of Prohibition Festival, 2012. Pours a cloudy brown color with a small beige head. Huge, toasty aroma with nuts, brown sugar, bark, dark and dried fruits, and chocolate. The flavor is equally toasty and robust, with chocolate, toast, brown sugar, wood, earth, and dried fruits. Medium-bodied, toasty as can be, with moderate carbonation. Re-Rate: Can shared by DrSilverworm- thanks again, Chris! Nuts, toast, leaves, oats, peanut brittle, and chocolate malt. The aroma is sweeter than the flavor. This is not bad, but not nearly as good as I remember. onceblind (10329) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Heavy dark brown, nearly black, with a big fluffy light tan head. The nose is deep and malty with earthy toffee, and a dry semi-astringent cocoa tone. The flavor is a bit dry and licorice-y, with a cocoa biscuitiness and dry toast. Not too special. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 30, 2013
12oz can, thanks to DanielCoor. Shared with local raters. Dark brown color. Thin tan head. Good dots of lace. Bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation, lightly dry finish. Dark chocolate, oats, light metallic. Toasty. Nice big bitterness, minimal sweet, mostly all bitter. Lots of nice dark cocoa, especially in the aftertaste. Gets more enjoyable as I go. Nice complex, kind of chewy "stout porter"
