Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass and a snifter. There werent 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.

Bottle. The look is lot like Pepsi, light beige colored head, and clear. The smell is malty, toffee, fruits, raisans, fig, and ok. The taste is fruity, roast, malt, sweet, too sweet, and sugary.

ChainGangGuy (4881) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - OCT 27, 2012
12 ounce bottle - $3.49 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Vintage 2012.

Appearance: Pours a clear, very dark brown body with a smallish, light mocha-toned head.

Smell: Dark malts with notes of cheap cherry cola, nuts, and other stuff. I say "other stuff" because it doesnt matter as it all yields to displeasing notes of soy and less-than-clean loose change.

Taste: Dark maltiness replete with store-brand cola, roasted nuts. Slight touch of rum raisin. Also, some coffee and licorice. Some metallic hints within, too. Maybe even a modest whisper of soy sauce. Eventually the other flavors fade away leaving the soy and metallic accents until the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Well, lets just say I preferred the other members of the Big Eddy crew. By margin wide enough to chuck some dirty nickles and a bottle of Kikkomans through.

Pour.....Baltic Brown Ale? Man, light coppery brown pour. Super viscous, sits dark raisin brown in the glass. Thin shitty head. Totally smells like a homebrew, soy sauce-ish and flat. Some chocolate and raisiny notes. Very boring and borderline offensive. Bitter burnt sugar and full syrupy body. Dis-aster.

This is an okay baltic porter. Its very rich, but a bit unbalanced in its roastiness. Tastes almost burnt.

Blairgus (4419) - California, USA - NOV 14, 2012
14 nov 2012, tap. Black. Nose is cocoa, alcohol, burnt toast. Med body and moderately fizzy. Becomes a huge beer once you taste it! Lots of alcohol, bitter dark chocolate, faint raisins, toasted grain, bitter finish. Pretty good.

maxwelldeux (4373) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle. Pours very thick and dark with almost no head. Huge toffee smell to the nose. Taste is more fruity than anything else, which is interesting. A little heavy, but not bad.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Vintage 2012, 12oz bottle. Very dark brown pour, thin ring tan head. Aroma of molasses, sweet toasted malt syrup, dark fruit puree, and chocolate malt. Tastes like a burnt Belgian Dubbel. Chocolate malt, dark fruit, wood tannin bitterness. A bite of a boozy finish in the roasted flavors left behind. (3486)

It poured a dark mohogany/red color with a light tan head. The aroma was of roasted malt and some licorice. The taste was sweet, roasted malt, with some dark fruit and slightly chalky. Average.
