Deep dark black pour with a creamy tan head. The nose is great. Rich cocoa and light sweet malt with a touch of chocolately sweetness and a bit of molasses. Rich and sticky with a solid bitterness helping to bring the stickiness under control. There's a great complexity in this beer. Rich and intensely sticky. There's a heavy roastiness as it warms. Damn tasty beer. Tessic (1269) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2017
This porter poured a deep dark amber colour with a dark tan coloured, foamy/creamy head. Almost no lacing. Scents include boozy, coffee, molasses, caramel and ripe fruit. First swig was a punch in the palate with thick sweetness, molasses, coffee and a hint of cherry. Finish is sweet and malty with a winey, coffee flavour lingering.

Love the aroma and the deep taste. Reminds of the deep brown and black Trappist beers from Belgium. Great to find a Canadian option for these, my favourites. mabel (10011) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 25, 2017
[9220-20170521] 500mL bottle. Roasted sweet malty grains aroma. Black body with a medium-lasting foamy light tan head. Roasted sweet coffee grains flavour has a nice balance and thankfully none of the astringent charring anticipated from the aroma. Full body. Good, nice to drink.

2017-05-21. Black body, modest brown head fades. 3+ Aroma of dark malt with notes of toasty roast malt, Ovaltine, and light fruit. 7+ Flavour has moderately sweet dark malt base, light bitterness throughout, moderate roast touches, very lightly tangy fruit accents. 7+ Smooth average plus body is thinner than my preference for the style, soft carbonation. A bit less robust than my preference, but enjoyable. 7/3/7/3/16 Bottle from the LCBO cellared several months, Toronto.

Pours black with mocha heat that laves lots of lacing behind. Smooth taste with roasted barley and you can taste bit of burnt on the end. Aroma comes through as coffee with hints of fruits. Alcohol burn is not existent, which is great. pootzboy (1832) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 15, 2017
A gorgeous dark roasty malt bomb - I have been searching for a local Baltic ever since my beloved Ockocim baltic was pulled for the shelves - this is a direct substitute - rich, dark, malty satisfying with light hints of figs and grape leaf. Kauge (2143) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 3, 2017
Bottle, LCBO. Brownish black with little beige head. Sweet and roasty, kind of harsh in finish. Dry dusty on the palate. Pretty nice. Sammy (13144) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2017
Strong alcohol in finish, otherwise all the ingredients of a true baltic porter. Black, with a bit of edge from spice. Bottle from LCBO. robinvboyer (4836) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 11, 2017
Jet black, big beige head. Lots of roast, but subtle fruity also, and alot of pine resin as it warms. Very full bodied and oily, with soft carb. Medium bitterness, pine resin finish with hints if coffee and more roast. Not bad, leaning more towards imperial stout with the hop profile I’m tasting. Still quite good though.
