Bottle thanks to Victor at Paul’s. Pours brownish black. Tan head. Nose of oak and smoked chocolate malt. Taste is the same with some lactose sourness and cooked vegetables. Lightish body. Ratman197 (14826) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Bottle poured a clesr reddish brown witha lasting creamy tan head. Aromas of carmel, oak, light fruittiness and light cola. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, light oak and a hint of fruittiness with a smooth finish. A very boring Baltic Porter, as well as a waste of Barrel aging. Lubiere (13900) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2013

12 ounce bottle from Badger in Beloit. Pours a very dark murky brown with a large creamy brown head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel and an off note almost like rotten vegetables. The taste is tart fruits and a malty finish. Kinda tastes like a fruit smoothie. Faint whisky and vanilla notes. Medium bodied. This one is majorly infected.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Bottle. Dark pour, but pours a bit thin and the head is minimal. Nose is pretty nice - roasted malt and a bit of charred wood. Palate is moderate. Taste is roasty malts, and a bit of cigarette ash. Unspectacular. alexsdad06 (10389) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 30, 2013
12 oz bottle shared by drsordr. Pours a dark cola brown color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, chocolate, some dark fruit, the one month in the bourbon barrels did not impart much bourbon at all, a hint of wood, smooth drinking. Good flavor, decent porter. sebletitje (10080) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 4, 2010
courtesy of BA trade. Bottle indicates Barrel aged Baltic Porter.
pours light brown, mocha head.
aroma, some berries, dark fruits, the wood aging is very mild and thin on the palate with some moderate note of vanilla, dark and caramel malts.
flavors, faint barrel,wood and hints of vanilla, dark fruits, chocolate/caramel malts and light roast.
Was really hoping for more of a barrel presence. Regardless, it’s a fairly nice baltic porter, lingering dark fruits, and a finish that is a little too thin.
