markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 14, 2011
On draft at Hunahpu Day. Thanks to kiefdog for sharing a pour with me. Pours dark brown with a white head. Disappointing... I thought a topless wych would be a blonde. Nose is nuts, malt, a few hops, and some earthy/ grassy notes. Flavor is similar. I was going to call this one a bit normal, then I saw it is a Baltic Porter. Hmm. Flavor tastes of a few hops with some roast and dark malts, maybe. Light to medium in body, and a bit confounding.

8oz pour on CASK @ Three Floyds. They had just tapped this sucker. Ended the night with this. Pours a dark brown almost black color with a small tan head. Has a roasted malty chocolate and molasses aroma with some hints of dark fruit. Smooth, fruity roasted malty caramel and chocolate flavor with some hints of dark fruit. Has a roasted malty dark chocolate finish. Really good stuff.

On tap at the Hunahpu’s release. Dark brown pour. A little too hoppy for my taste, but still good dark fruit, chocolate, and roasty coffee notes...

The malts are so tasty in this. Dark, chocolatey, almost smokey. The pour is pitch black with a tan head that is creamy. The finish is extremely pleasing with a good amount of hops shining through the rich interior of malts. A great brew. Love it.

On tap at FFF ; pour is dark brown with amber highlights; nice traditional hop note on the nose. hazelnuts, chocolate, coffee, and a traditional hop profile makes for a very nice Baltic. A bit boozy.... but very nice!

Had at Brickskeller during Savour 2010 week tasting event. Pours dark, with slight foam. Nice coffee taste to it. A nice porter.

Verecund (82) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 29, 2010
From notes 03/2010. Enjoyed at FFF on St. Patrick’s Day 2010. Poured into a tulip glass at the brewpub. A near-black purple with a dark, creamy head. Roasty grains, dark malts, some chocolate and coffee. Some citrus hop-profile in the back. Taste is dark fruit, chocolate, some roastiness, and a minor piney and citrus hop finish (I think this clocks in at 58 IBUs, but it’s hidden by the malty profile). Off for the style, I think, but still tasty. Medium-bodied; I wish this one was just a little heavier in the mouth. Overall, this was a delicious, well-balanced baltic porter.

yngwie (17109) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2010
On tap at Mikkeller. It’s a black beer, topped by a nice, dense, beige head leaving lacings. The aroma has coffee and a sourish hint, as well as a good dash of dried fruits. Coffee and sweetness in the mouth, dryness too, and a little roasted maltyness. The lasting finish is more or less like the initial flavor, a bit less sweet though. Full-bodied. A really nice beer that goes in several directions style wise I think. Definitely a beer I’d like to revisit. 100508

[email protected] Bar, Copenhagen. Quite much black colour with a mediumsized off-white creamy head. Aroma is dark dry fruits, some slight roasted malts, caramel malts as well as some mild chocolate. Flavour is being quite much the same, in a rather sweet way. A bit sweet, otherwise quite nice.

nuplastikk (6373) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 15, 2010
Draft at FFF. Described as a Belgian Stout by the bartender, which added some confusion rating it. Served in a tulip glass. Pitch black body under a big, fluffy, beige head. Creamy chocolate aroma, maybe a hint of bitterness. Rich chocolate tones, quite creamy and full bodied. Sugary, almost lactic. Big, but retains a nice Porter-like quality.
