16 oz can. Dense black with one finger tan head. Aroma malt, licorice and roast. taste similar to aroma. Palate thinner than most Baltics I’ve tried. Roasty finish. kaser (6409) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Essentially none of the sweetness I generally associate with this style. I’d describe it as a roasty porter with some licorice. Just OK
Poured from 16 oz can at George street pub. Black with off white head. Can definatly taste the licorice. Sweet and oily. Plum and chocolate notes. Tasty beer MattH (913) - California, USA - SEP 21, 2013
16 ounce can from 41st street Liquor in Capitola. A great price at $2.25. Enjoyable brew with a nice chocolate and black licorice flavor. I want to try more beers from this brewery. jmikolich (1486) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - AUG 22, 2013
16oz can, uncommon is a good name for them, they are doing some oddball additions to their beers, most of them work pretty well and this is no exception, though I don’t feel the addition gains much. Slightly smoky flavor with a decent anise punch that black licorice taste lingers and holds on.. not bad GIJOE (1256) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - AUG 15, 2013
Smooth tasting, foamy porter with an interesting licorice-like note to it; something herbal, too, perhaps. I like it! Very nice!

Visual: Good visual of the licorice plant and star anise on the front, as well as a decent description of the beer itself. Pours jet black with a large lasting cream-foamy head, CO2 activity at the surface. tom10101 (6280) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2013
Nose: Roasted coffee and thick sweet malts; (8/10-aroma strength)
Attack: tingly-fizzy-creamy mouthfeel
Mid-palate: roasted coffee syrup, 7/10-sweet caramel, licorice
Finish: fizziness, hints of cola (star anise), malty phlegm, mild coffee sourness, medium-deep roast coffee bitter finish.
Summary: This beer dispels my belief that no good beer comes out of a can; on the contrary, this Baltic Porter has good depth, decent complexity, good length and pleasant smoothness. The sourness grows as it warms up however. Recommended at least 1x.
Can (16 oz). From dresden, thanks! Black with a medium tan head, ok retention and little lacing. Aroma if of roasted malt, liquorice, milk chocolate and ashes. Taste is moderately sweet with roasted malt, liquorice, milk chocolate, ashes, lactose and vanilla. Medium body. Silky mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation. Good balance. Nice Baltic Porter! crossovert (14019) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Old can. BPA aged. IT pours with a fizzy head, a denze brownish black. Smell is anise, cocoa, some coffee. Flavor is fruity, earthy spice, cocoa brownie, coffee. Its okay. chuckstout (336) - Washington, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Vanilla, licorice, smooth, bready, chocolate, dough, woody, creamy, black with red highlights, nice head. Good mouthful tasty brewdough, sic1314 (4967) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2013
Poured black with a beige head. Aroma of sweet vanilla bourbon, caramel malt. Medium to full body, flavour of the aroma, seems more a standard stout than a Baltic Porter. Still very nice.
