Dark brown hue; handsome tan beads of lace adorn my glass.

Aroma is right on: roasty as hell, malty in yo face, smells dry. But a bit too dry on the palate; taste fades into desert-like dryness before I can sufficiently enjoy it. Tasty.

douglas88 (8552) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Bomber from Belmont. Pours a deep brown color almost black with a small brown head. A sweet nose with toasted malts, caramel and some metal. The flavor is more sweet toffee, caramel, almost something akin to sweet candied fruit, dry toasted malts, chocolate. Pretty light but good.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Bomber from Corvallis. Pours a deep brown with a tan head. Nose is supremely fruity, loads of melanoidin and cocoa. Really classic Baltic porter nose. Some alcohol is noted. On tasting, lightly sweet and rich, lots of malt, cocoa, plums. Drying finish and balanced. Superb Baltic.

Another huge thanks to Joel at Corvallis Brewing Supply for this beer. Dark amber color with spices, malt and some nuttiness to it. The sweetness of the malt was great along with the spices made this a perfect beer for Christmas. The mouthfeel was medium and well balanced. Again this was a great beer

From 22 ounce bottle. A light porter with definite toffee and dark chocolate notes with a smooth finish.

mcberko (15010) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 21, 2012
22 oz. bottle, pours a red-tinged dark amber brown with a small beige head. Aroma of light caramel malts, toasted nuts, some dark fruits - very light notes. Flavour is a bit metallic, with light notes of dark fruits, toasted nuts and caramel. Very weak, with a thin palate. Uncomplex in all aspects. Drinkable, but nothing more.

Alphadelic (2180) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 14, 2012
2012, which is a Baltic porter but reads 6.5 on the bottle. Super dark with twinkles of brown in the light and a creamy cappuccino head. The nose is robust and dryly malty with heaps of thick caramel welling up out of the glass. It has a small burst of dry roasted malt followed by that thick, sweet, buttery caramel. The carbonation is well judged with a blitz early on that cleanses the residual sugar from the tongue and then it settles back out allowing that honeyed stickiness to take over again. I think I could drink a bunch of it.

neepsntatties (1828) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 10, 2012
Bottle of the 2011. I had this during the holidays then happened upon some bottles at an eatery in McMinnville in March. Colour...basic black with a thick tan head. Nose... Prunes and chocolate drops. Palate...semi viscous with mild CO2 then a decent shot of Belgian milk chocolate (like Cote d Or), some currants and raisins and a semi dry finish.

brewolf (169) - Wilderness, WA, USA, - MAR 26, 2012
Draft: Very deep brown pour with a tan head. Nice roast, dark caramel, dark fruit, with a hint of milk/lactose and an almost oaky barrel character in the nose. Flavor is lightly sweet and adds a faint cocoa note. Body is medium creamy, carb is soft, and bitterness is extremely low in the malty fruit-kissed finish. Nice example of the style without an overly inflated abv. Bottle: Carbonation more flat, thinner body, and more muted flavor profile. Glad I was able to catch it on draft, as it seemed like a completely different beer. I would have rated my bottle a 3.4 at best.

Smooth and smoky from start to finish. Looks great in the glass with a subtle aroma.
