3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aluminum bottle courtesy of weihenweizen! Pours a milky brown, pillowy mocha head that fades to a rind with some potty lacing. Aromas milk chocolate light roasted almonds iced coffee with cream and sugar and some grain/cereal notes. Taste mimics the nose with a light but smooth milk chocolate character that moves along a mild bitter backbone of coffee and earthy hops. Solid porter!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance had a decent looking dark brown to black color with a decent off white to white foamy head that died within less than a minute. Light lacing streamed itself all along the glass.
The smell had a lie roasty chocolate to light cocoa with a light bitter roasted coffee bean like aroma leading to a nice dark fruity plum-like ness.
The taste took all of those flavors and combined to taste really nice.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation sat fairly subdued but good for the style.
Overall, really nice Baltic Porter I’d have again if I could get it.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Holy wow this is fantastic. This beer is deceptively light-bodied, but has plenty of malty, chocolatey, toasty flavors. No hop presence aside from underlying bitterness. A tiny bit of floral hop aroma is almost hidden. There’s almost a milky flavor/feeling but it might be the texture. The beer finishes as powerfully as it starts with bread crust and a bit of fig/caramel. Fantastic, and a beer West Virginia can be proud of!
