UPDATED: DEC 7, 2007 Bottle from BevMo. Pitch black as it is poured into my shaker. Sudbued roasted malty aroma. Full flavored maltiness with a slightly sweet flavor as well. Finish is very roasty. Smooth mouthfeel, quite creamy. A little alcohol is noticable. Great deal at $2 for 16.9oz.

ElGaucho56 (394) - USA - SEP 16, 2007
Pours a near black with tan, diminishing head. Aroma of roasted malts, strong estery fruits including blueberry and banana; hops come on strong on the palate: grassy and intensely bitter, finishing with a nice pop. Alcohol is present, particularly in the finish. Interesting take on the style, perhaps a little unbalanced, but certainly admirable.

50 cl bottle from BevMo (Mission Valley, S.D.) - Pours a dark brown color with a small light tan head. Thin lacing. Aroma and flavor is roasted malt, light choclate, and faint esters. Smooth palate. Medium body. A good beer.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 7, 2007
Really dark, chocolate brown body with a small, frothy, coffee colored head. The foamy settles quickly to a small, bubbly layer with a prominent edge. Minimal, sudsy, spotty lace dots the glass. The aroma shows copious amounts of nougat and caramel, along with stewed raisons, figs, and some vanilla. Typical of a Baltic, it’s very fruity smelling. The flavor again builds on a caramel and nougat base, this time with chocolate joining in. Dark fruits, vanilla, and maybe even a hint of maple add depth. I even picked up a bit of oak. An ample hop bite kicks in on the back end, lending balance. Mouthfeel was moderate in stature and smooth. Very drinkable for 9.5%. Solid brew.
