Draught at Avery. Blackish brown with small white head. Aroma of roasted coffee, bitter chocolate, light burntness with notes of breakfast smells. Taste is medium sweetness with big roasted coffee and light chocolate. Medium bodied with medium bitter finish that lingers. A little sweet for my kind of porter, but still enjoyable.

On tap at Avery in Boulder. Pours a clear, deep mahogany with a reddish hue. Finger-width, creamy, brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is soft roasts and bittersweet chocolate with some toffee, earth, and dark fruits. Flavor is similar with rich chocolates, caramel, and toffee, but plenty of roasts and earth. A bit of a dark fruit and a good amount of citrusy hops too. Dry and moderately bitter with a lengthy aftertaste after a smooth, crisp, light to medium body. Overall, a really tasty baltic porter. Well hopped with a nice roast to go with an easy drinking crispness. Nice.
