2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A very rare beer indeed. Had tis at the ratebeer winter holiday gather in late december. Nice dark pour from a bomber. Fairly sweet in the aroma. Yes, certainly a porter my any imagination. So many porters taste like stout but this is truely on style; milder, mannered almost like a thicker dark lager or a very light schwartz. Does get a little bitter towards the end of the session but never gets in your face, easy to enjoy. Trying to be a baltic but never gets there. Not bad overall.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a bottle at Wynkoop’s Beers of the Year 2012. Clear brownish amber, no head. Nice chocolaty aroma with some subtle smoke, and light caramel. Flavor was weird but entirely loveable, with some pale grain maltiness, caramel, subtle choco tones, with a light nuttiness throughout. Most unique porter I’ve ever tried.
