2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from trade with Crajun. Pours dark brown in color with a nice head that fades normally. Aromas are cocoa, wood, light berries, and a light nuttiness. Taste is somewhat hard to describe. Cocoa taste is prominant but there seems to be some off-flavors here. Itís a little sour and dry. A tad thin and watery too. This is probably an infected bottle. I will re-rate if I get another.

What is it with the animals with the bikes? I took my daughter to the circus. She said: "Daddy, how do they teach a bear how to ride a bike?" I said: Itís easy, they nail his feet to the pedals and they beat the shit out of him. Heís not riding, heís running. He just happens to be attached to the bike.

Pours black with a tan head that sticks around the entire time. The keg version seemed to be a little lighter in color. Sweet malty aroma of roasted malts. Medium to thin body with a almost roasted coffee taste. Slightly bitter lingering finish. Not bad at all.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Thanks to cfh64 (Brad) for the extra! 12 oz. bottle served in a Deschutes snifter.
A: Pours a semi-translucent dark brown color with a thin tan head forming on the pour. Was expecting a little darker for a Baltic porter.
S: Uh oh. Highly fruity and tangy. Some light vinegar with a touch of roasted malts. Smells like infection to me.
T: Definitely infected. Dried cherry pits, tangy vinegar, and a little plastic. There is no discernible Baltic Porter flavors in this one.
M: Super thin with a high carbonation level.
O: The infection ravaged this beer. It seemed so inviting and I seem to be the first to report any infection here on BA. Hopefully this is an isolated for this newer brewery.
