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. brokensail (16436) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 28, 2011
A: This one pours a very dark amber color, sort of a brownish copper, with a khaki colored head.
S: Very heavy on the toffee, with a real nuttiness about the beer. Quite creamy and toasty with just a hint of roasted malt. Maybe a touch of chocolate, brown sugar, and molasses.
T: Nicely toasty with plenty of caramelized sugar flavor and solid toffee. A hint of coffee as well as minimal roasted malt flavor. Intensely nutty with a solid creaminess that is prevalent throughout the time I drank my glass of this. Just an ever so slight bitterness.
M: The body is medium with a moderate level of carbonation.
D: Very different from other Baltic Porters that I’ve had. Not a ton of roast, but really quite enjoyable. bhensonb (15093) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 23, 2015
Bomber shared by Marcus. Pours brown with a slight tan head. Aroma of dark fruit and dark malt. Not a very sweet aroma. Med + body. Flavor is dark fruit and dark malt. Maybe a hint of smoke and or coffee. Nice drink, but it might be fun as an imperial. marcus (10146) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 23, 2015
Bottle from Berkeley Bowl West. Pours dark brown with a thick tan head and a chocolate and treacle aroma. There is a chewy dark molasses flavor that is a little smoky with a thick slightly bitter finish. Very tasty but a lttle light on the body. 3fourths (9331) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 25, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2011 2011 bottle. dark brown with a small tan head, short retention. coffee, mild roast, powdered milk, light soy sauce and ink character. medium light body, mildly sweet with low bitterness. charred cracker malt is soft and silky, carbonation just as soft. mild fruity esters impart a welcome berry and brandy character with the chocolate and roast. well-done, and thankfully kept under 7%.

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. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Bottle:   Nearly black, moderate to large frothy sand colored head, very nice lacing.   Roasty nose.   Otherwise faint cocoa.   Roasty on the tongue, slight tartness.   Seems like a regular Porter to me.   Slightly sweet, a little lactose on the backside.   Body is nearing the thin side.   Roasty finish.   Pretty simple overall.   Nothing special. joeneugs (6371) - Livermore, California, USA - JAN 18, 2015
22 oz. bottle. It pours a dark brown color with a small light tan head. The aroma is sweet caramel apple, plum, cocoa powder and roasted malt. The flavor is more fruity with rich figgy raisin bread, black cherry cola, hints of roasted malt and black currant-like bitterness in the finish. Mildly acidic with lower than normal carbonation and a medium body. After finishing the bottle, I was glad this was on the lower end of the ABV spectrum. Pretty tasty and very drinkable. boFNjackson (4201) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 17, 2011
Bottle... Poured deep brown with hints of red and a khaki head. Nose had some toastiness. A light floralness, toasty and roasted malt, nutty, caramel, coffee, chocolate, and a hint of clean, smooth yeast towards the finish.
