3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown with a toasty malt aroma, and light coffee. Earthy, toasty, lightly sweet, nutty...not as clean as I like my Baltics, and it has a lot of hoppy dryness. Decent brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nose was sweaty, chocolate milk funk and in that sense a dead on Baltic porter in the vein of the old Perkuno’s Hammer, which this reminded me of quite a bit. Chocolate flavors and a semi-dry finish with just a hint of roast.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
3/13/12. On tap at the brewery. Black-ish pour with brown edges under a small tan head that fades to a ring, sticks, and laces in spotty sheets. Sweet, almost fruity aroma with bits of roast and ash. Rich, somewhat sweet flavor with a bigger kick of roast, more fruitiness, and touches of milk chocolate. Nice!
