On draft at Eccentric Cafe circa first week of May, 2013. This beer smelled and tasted just like fresh chocolate melted over the stove. Sweet chocolate balanced by some dry nuttiness. A texture like melted butter. Cleaned up on the palate beautifully, leaving no harsh aftertaste. Virtually no hint of alcohol in this beer. Outstanding.

Pours dark brown with reddish hues, fine head. Good looking beer. Aroma is dark malt with some roastiness, hints of dark chocolate, as it warms I get some alcohol. Big mouthfeel, large beer here. Malty sweetness, dark malt, hint cocoa/coffee flavor. Lingering malty sweetness.

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.

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
