3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft to taster at the Eccentric Cafe. Looks decent; pretty thin though. A transparent brown with thin off-white lacing. Smells solid; dark malt and roast. Tastes like it smells, but surprisingly smooth; the roast is more subdued and gives way to a semi-sweet malty backbone with notes of chocolate. Not bad.

Had this on tap at the brew "cafe" They should really bottle this stuff. In comparison, I think it’s better than K Zoo stout. Very, very tasty stuff! Cheers, and thanks to the nice folks from western ichigan who bought me the glass!

On tap at the eccentric cafe. Some sweet, richness in the nose. Very dark brown with barely any head. Rich and full as it traverses the mouth with and interesting mix of sweet and bitter in the finish. Wasn’t crazy about this, but it definitely wasn’t the worst thing I had today.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Eccentric Cafe. (Listed as "Light Bodied Porter", 8.4%) Pours deep brown with dirty red transparency and negligible head. Nose is dark roasted malt and slight coffee. Taste is bitter, dry, roasty, nutty, and burnt chocolate. Very nice, crisp, refreshing and packed with flavor. Almost some cinnamon and spices coming through as well. Nice offering.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Eccentric. Huge roasty aroma,not as coffeeish as most,some touches of chocolate. Taste was a big splash of roasted malt with subtle chcolate notes,not as big bodied as most Baltic Poters,also lacking complexity ,It was nice enough ,but more an Imperial Porter then a Baltic

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black. Rich tan head. Rich malt flavors dominate. The palate is smooth, but slightly too highly carbonated for a porter. Overall a great beer however.
