Not really my style as I’m an IPA guy. But... This one pours dark, smell is sweet and taste is as well. Great pour. Wonderful head.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This beer is definitely showing its age at this point. It is brown with a small head of fine bubbles. Nose is mostly oxidized malts and it is lightly tart and cardboardy. I wish I could have tried this fresh but it is clearly way past its prime now.

Bottle. Don’t relaly think the collobrating brewers relaly cared to make it that interesting. Its a much bigger baltic porter than most, with a bozze note and even some oxidaiton already.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is coffee, cardboard, slightly hoppy. Tastes are cola, coffee, slightly astringent, touch of alcohol and sourness. Finish is slightly thin, but loads of coffee and touches of sour astringency. Decent.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft and bottled. Pours a nice opaque chocolate brown color with a small tan head that quickly disappears. The aroma and flavor has roasted malts, milk and dark chocolate, earthy and herbal hops, a splash of dark fruit, light nutty notes and wood. Medium bodied, easy drinking with a dry finish. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from 12 ounce bottle bought at The Party Source. Very dark brown color, small tan head, fine firm roasted malt aroma with vanilla and fruit notes, very nice rich malty flavor. My only criticisms are some astringency and a little too much carbonation. Still, a very worthwhile brew that I’m sure is even better on draft.
