Pours deep, dark, reddish-brown with a short and shiny, dark tan head. Syrupy, prune aroma. Taste is heavy, woody malt...dull chocolate...slightly roasty. Smooth, dark bittering. Not amazing, but pretty decent.

12 oz bottle and served in snifter: Pours a deep brown with reddish highlights topped by a fading tan head and spartan lace. The aroma has notes of caramel, roast, nuts, prune, figs, tobacco and other earthy yeast esters. The taste is dark fruits and earthy malts, not sweet but still very malty and earthy. The mouthfeel is smooth and oily, would have like a tad more sticky notes here. Solid brew but not quite up to the standards of the best Balticís on the market.

Pailhead (6539) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - DEC 18, 2012
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-strong chocolate, caramel, and light fruit. It pours a dark mahogany with some transparency and a one finger tan head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. There is some dotted lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a good dose of milk chocolate and lighter caramel. The finish has moderate roast, fruit, metal, and a touch of alcohol. The metal flavor is even more unpleasant when it clashes with the roast and fruit. Itís medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, the metallic finish really kills this beer for me.

12 ounce bottle into a brandy snifter thanks to weihenweizen. Pours a darker brown. No sign of head or carbonation. Aroma is roasty with notes of milk chocolate. Taste is super sweet, nearing acrid sugary sweetness. A little roastyness comes back into play in the finish, but its not enough to save this beer. Itís bad.

Dark pour from draft at standard. Sweet and coffee aroma. Black and thick pallette. Chocolate notes. Not bad!

The beer pours a dark brown color with a white head. The aroma is full of alcohol and some dark fruit notes. I also get a little bit of brown sugar. The flavor is similar. I get a lot of raisin and prune notes, as well as some molasses and roasted malt. I also get the slightest hint of smoke. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

This is pretty sweet but not a whole lot thatís good in the flavor or body. Mostly itís sugary and chocolaty but just not all that good.

Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass and a snifter. There werenít any significant differences in either glass. The appearance was a nice black color with a decent half fingered white to off white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light trickling lacing sliding right on into the body. The smell had some caramel, toffee, cocoa, toasted bread and a cherry-like fruit to it. The taste took those previously mentioned flavors and added a decent dark roasty quality to it. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a decent sessionable quality about it. The carbonation was fairly subdued but still good. Overall, I say this was a well worthy Baltic Porter to come back to.

cheap (5798) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2012
Glad to have a chance to taste this, from a bottle from gorillos. How could this be less than 2$? Pours a big very dark brownish thing with a little dark red punching thru. Had a creamy choco moose head at first but now faded. Smell is very up front, makes me think of imperial stout. Some smokey thing slightly on the olfactory. AS expected, big and nasty like lion stout, wew. This style is over the top when its on style, heheh. Medicine black bitter thing on tongue. OH my, just as bad as any impy stout fer sure. I suppose there is allot of intersecting features between the two styles of baltic porter and imp stout. What do I know, I like pale lager and this is jsut too much for my girlie taste buds. Oil leaking roto tiller is dragging across my taste buds. Is this what used harley motor oil tastes like?

Cybercat (5745) - Georgia, USA - SEP 7, 2015
Pours opaque sable that lets a bit of ruby light peek through at the very bottom. Tan head is fairly thick but makes an early exit. Strong aroma has rich molasses and roast malt notes plus hints of chocolate and dark fruit. Flavor bursts with molasses, charred malt and roast quality coffee; cocoa, dark fruit and a little caramel provide the background tones. Texture has firm, smooth body, though fizz is lacking. Recommended if you can find it.
