bboeckl (142) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 14, 2008
Bottle. Dark, almost opaque black with a thick foamy off-white head. Dark roasted malts, dark fruit, chocolate. All the hallmarks of a good Baltic Porter. Mouthfeel is a bit oily, body is not overly heavy or syrupy. Great balance and complexity make this one a "Wow". I would buy again.

nuplastikk (5914) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 11, 2008
500ml bottle. Black toffee color. Moderate, lacy head. Mellow dark malty aroma. Big and rich, but not as rounded as an Imperial Stout or Barleywine. Sugary sweet not unlike a Dunkel. A lot of alcohol warming, but it still remains completely drinkable. A great example of the style. Lots of chocolate roastiness. Bonus points for only being two dollars a bottle.

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAY 10, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2012 Bottle. Dark brown, ok almost black, with very solid, dense head and good lacing. Some pleasant metallic edginess and pumpernickel roast. Also bourbon in nose. Coffee, toffee with dry finish. This beer rocks--what a nice surprise at first, and has become a go-to.

after4ever (7736) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAY 8, 2008
500. Black. Dense, tall, creamy dark tan head with lots of bubbles and lots of mousse. Gorgeous. Big fat dark-fruit-y liquoricey nose. Creamy medium body. Perfectly placed carb. Chocolate, dark fruit, tiny bit of roast, and some stinging herbaly anise flavors on the mid-palate. Long strong dark finish. Great, great stuff.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - MAY 8, 2008
Not terribly impressed with this one. Black pour with a brownish head. Smokey malt aroma. Flavor is roasted coffee, alcohol, and maple cured bacon. I dont know where the bacon came from. Maybe it was a bad bottle.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - APR 21, 2008
Very dark reddish black beer with a nice aroma of plums, raisins, glue, slightly of cinnamon and grapes.
The flavour is sweet, slightly fresh & sourish. The aftertaste is of cocoa and malty-bitter.
The mouthfeel is nice, softly fluffy.

NachlamSie (3357) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 19, 2008
Bottle best before April 14, 2008. Pours a dark red/black with a small, tightly formed head. The aroma is creamy with hints of vanilla wafers, soy sauce, chocolate, and green apples. The palate is nice and smooth. A dense, chewy toffee presence compliments the very light fruit notes. Soy sauce and a slight roast round out things. This is a very drinkable beer.

rugbydude05 (478) - Bridgewater, NJ, New Jersey, USA - APR 17, 2008
500 ml bottle purchased at a Polish convenience store in Brooklyn. Pours a dark brown color with light brown head typical of a porter. Aroma was softly sweet with hints of caramel and well hopped. Taste was bittersweet and very strong, but i felt the palate wasnt very smooth and it tasted a little watered down. Good option and more impressive than Okocim.

LilBeerDoctor (3824) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2008
Bottle. Pours a dark black with a pretty dark, creamy tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of chocolate and faint coffee and roast. Flavor strongly of coffee and roast, some chocolate. Rather boozy too, especially as it warmed. Good beer.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 14, 2008
From By The Bottle in Vancouver, WA--Poured a dark black-brown body with some amber tints. Not much head at all and a slick, oily body. Big sweet, robust malts in the nose. Chocolaty, sweet, malty, and all around spectacular beer. Perhaps the best Baltic Porter Ive ever tasted.
