12 oz. can. Pours a medium, tiny bubbled, well retained, light beige head, with spare lacing over a clear, ruby brown (SRM 30) body....nose is roasted malts with cocoa, chocolate tones, lighter coffee, minimal fruit notes, no esters, mild hop aroma....taste is almost dry, with cocoa, chocolate, heavier coffee from the roasted malts, no fruit note, minimal esters, finishing slightly bitter, with hints of coffee type sourness.....mouth feel, medium body, mild alcohol, light astringency, carbonation makes for light acid and a creamy mouthful. This comes closer to being a "Stout Porter" perhaps Robust Porter than a Baltic Porter. It lacks the fruit richness from the malt backbone along with the quite apparent sweetness of a Baltic. Upping the complexity of the malt bill, and changing to European hops would make it a Baltic. However if it were labeled a Robust Porter those changes wouild not be necessary. BJCP 7/3/12/5/6

Itís a dark brown pour with a tan head. Aroma is vanilla, toasted oats, burnt malts, and bitter cocoa. The taste is more of the same, lots of vanilla IMO, but itís good. Medium bodied, itís a good beer.

b3shine (5819) - Indiana, USA - APR 5, 2014
Can to snifter (shared with the Mrs; thanks DrSilverworm). Looks good; a semi-opaque dark brownish black with beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; dark malt, chocolate, and mild notes of oat. Tastes like it smells with some rye spice as well. Solid on the palate. Enjoyable.

jbruner (2477) - Athens, Georgia, USA - FEB 12, 2014
Pours a deep black from the can with bubbly tan head that lasts and leaves good lace. Aroma of dark malts and fruits, hint of metallic yeast. Taste is much more towards the chocolate with a hint of English fruity yeast. Bubbly carbonation, smooth and easy.

Black bodied, creamy head. Roasted nuts, coffee, cereal. Taste reveals more hop character, as itís fairly bitter. Lively carbonation. (On tap at Craft Pride)

jsquire (3551) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Dark beer with some reddish brown highlights when held against the light. Short brown head. Complex malty nose of coco puffs and raw grain. Lots of chocolate flavors, burnt toast, some sweetened coffee and some dark fruit in the background. Long toasted grain finish.

RSRIZZO (1870) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 1, 2014
12oz can poured into an English Pint at 43į. Color is black with good carbonation and a thin tight tan head. Aroma is rich and sweet giving off dried fruit scents. It has a medium body with a crisp light mouth feel. Flavor is roasted coffee and chocolate giving it a dry feel then a mild sweetness with a touch of fruit balances it out letting it finish clean. Overall I like it. its a bold easy drinking brew.

onceblind (4512) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Heavy dark brown, nearly black, with a big fluffy light tan head. The nose is deep and malty with earthy toffee, and a dry semi-astringent cocoa tone. The flavor is a bit dry and licorice-y, with a cocoa biscuitiness and dry toast. Not too special.
