Keg. Toast and spicy aroma. Relatively light on body but big on very astringent chocolate malt. I didnt enjoy this so much due to the high astringency, but Id like to try it again based on all others high ratings.

DomD (294) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAR 21, 2017
Bottle into glass. Malty coffee aromas. Pours a very dark brown with off white head. The taste is hard to describe, umami with some light bitterness I guess. Full bodied, with slick texture and a long somewhat malty finish. Nice take on the Baltic Porter.

jaghana (5875) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - FEB 15, 2017
Bottle 66cl, a dark beer with medium brown head. Nose is on roasted caramel and burnt caramel, vegetable touch. Aroma is on sweet caramel, roasted caramel, light smoked notes, kind of spices, some molasses, less complex than expected. Finish on burnt caramel and ashes, bit german in the style.

Brettsky06 (356) - Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 6, 2017
Pours blacks with a dark brown head. Aroma is chocolate and dark fruits. Taste is very sweet. Almost has a barrel aged fruity taste to it. A bit of chocolate and finishes a little dry. Overall a very good porter

northropfrye (3443) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 6, 2017
Dark black body, brown head, some nice lacing. Aroma of banana, yeast, dried fruit, cocoa. Taste is a bit of roast, sweet bready notes, and a hint of anise, dry aftertaste, but could be more pronounced. Over all okay.

ljthiessen (1257) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 2, 2017
Bottle. Black pour with a tan head. Aroma is mostly chocolate, simple but nice. Taste is a little roasty, chocolate, a little coffee. Balanced, rich and flavourful for the ABV.

Bulk_Carrier (5021) - Essex Junction, Vermont, USA - OCT 17, 2016
Poured into an English pint glass, the appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a white to off white foamy head dissipates appropriately. Messy run about lace. The aroma starts off with a ruddy milk and dark chocolate blending with some candied dark fruits. Seems like theres a subtle dried hoppy grassiness underneath. Light earthiness. The flavor brings together the previously mentioned aromas sweetly layered with a delicate roast underneath. Smooth bitter yet somewhat wet sort of dark fruity aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionable smooth feel to it. Low carbonation yields to the wet feel on my tongue. Overall, nicely done Baltic Porter that I would have again.

Bierdimpfe (624) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 15, 2016
Opaque black with tons of glass clinging activity. Slightly creamy light brown 2 finger head, lasting around 10 minutes, with faint legs. Flavors of walnuts, cocoa, coffee beans, dark berries, cherries, dark grains, herbal spices. Thick sugary molassy feel, with bitter earthy spices. Slick oily medium body with prickly carbonation. Strong finish, a little dry and port like, tongue coating roasted dark malts, toffee and walnuts, with a (too) faint fruity barrel aged feel. Good freshness for the style. Tasty flavors and the finish is not excessive. Overall, for a Baltic porter, good quality craft.

Adamsville (301) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 27, 2016
Apparence :Noire, col moyen brun sans relle rtention, effervescence semble moyenne et moyennement rapide, trs lgre dentelle. Nez : Grains rtis en entre, laissant place au chocolat au lait avec une pointe dacidit. Got : Chocolat au lait, acidit des grains rtis, touche vanille intressante en finale, tout de mme sucre. S : Effervescence moyenne suprieure, corps moyen, finale de longueur moyenne, mi amre, mi sucre avec la touche dacidit perue au nez, moyenne chaleur de lalcool, sans plus. Bref : Peu complexe, bonne, sans facteurs dmerveillement. Certaines caractristiques que je reproche souvent des porters standards sy retrouvent : touche dacidit, corps lger, effervescence quelque peu trop leve. Bonne bire, sans plus.
