Keg at the brewery, 9/2/16. Hazy dark brown, thin creamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of roast, mint, earth, chocolate. The taste is chocolate, roasted malts, soy. Thin.

Draft at the source. Deep brown-black pour with tan head. Aroma is gentle roasted malt with some decent dark fruit esters, caramel, and nutty toasted malt. Flavor is a clean chocolate roast with more caramel and nutty toasted biscuit. Trail of faint dark fruit. Lingering clean, coffee-type roasted malt. Would agree with a previous rater’s opinion of Baltic-type qualities and clean profile. Nice showing.

Huge snifter pour. Pitch black, big beige head. Baltic Porter? ( yep ). Big and sugary sweet, certainly not classical. Off chalky bandaid and chocolate aroma. Big, enjoyable, but just a touch off. Some vanilla tones. A little odd, cant put my finger on it. Still pretty decent. Some coffee tones.

StefanSD (2468) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - AUG 11, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pint pour. Opaque dark brown color with a small tan head . The aroma is big and rich with mocha, chocolate, roasted grains and some sweetened coffee. The taste is similar to the nose, lots of dark roasted grains, mocha and some spicy raisins and dates. The palate is full and smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes long and slightly sweet. overall: Very impressive, very tasty.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2011 On tap at Silver Creek brewpub. Dark brown with a medium brown topper. Aroma of sweet roasted malt, dark fruit, caramel and chocolate. Taste of chocolate, dark fruit, dark roasted malts, some coffee and a touch of spices. Very good Baltic porter.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 20, 2008
Pours a dark brown almost black colour. Head is fairly large, beige. Aroma is definately porter like, but i dont know if i would go as far as saying spiced. Or the taste either. Slightly metallicy, the only spice i can faintly pick up was a hint of clove. Other then that, a classic porter taste, but a little weak.
