Bottle:   Super deep brown, moderate frothy light beige head, spotty lacing.   Sweet roasted malt nose, seems like a milk stout.   A bit more robust on the tongue, almost an acrid roastiness, minor sweetness, a bit of cocoa and hops.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Backside shows some youthfull porterness, a little green.   Some dark chocolate, pith, and green hops.   Seems like a mild to moderate Baltic Porter.   Overall decent, clean, but without the heavy dark pitted fruit or roasted characters I expect for the style.   Still enjoyable tho!

Tap at the source. Pours dark brown, nice tan head. Aroma is nice roasted malts, chocolate. Flavor is similar. Very nutty too. I like it of the style. Solid.

Tap - fair size foamy head, almost black color, much more balanced than I expected, good dark (but not roasty) malt aroma and flavor with a good size kick of citrus hops and the clean finish, really good overall ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is a bit phenolic, rubber, oatflakes. Taste is burnt breadcrust, bakery. Light. Way too light. Meh.

Pours a very dark brown with a thick khaki head that had some retention but did dissipate somewhat quickly. There was some lacing around the glass but quite minimal. The aroma is dark toasted malts, oats, some woodiness, and alcohol. In the flavor I pick up the dark roasted malts with woodiness to go along with some hop bitterness. There is some oak characteristics in this beer. On the back end I pick up some of the sweeter chocolate and oatmeal flavor as well. Was hoping for something better but still worth a try

Poured from a cool-looking can into a nucleated schooner glass, thanks Greg! Opaque dark brown colour with sudsy beige foam, thin but long-lasting with a little lace. Extremely malt-forward with lots of complex caramelization. Toffee and massive molasses impression, merging with non-descript hoppy balance to produce a perfumey Belgian Dubbel effect. Subtle toasty and roasty notes, but not as much as most stouts, lacking typical dark stone fruit tartness too. Technically a Baltic Porter using lager yeast, thus there were no ale yeast esters or phenols. Grainy with a hint of sharp rye bite and lots of lingering Munich malt stickiness. Complex, but somehow I just don’t dig the whole as much as I expected. In this case, the whole is less than the sum of its parts, a bit of identity crisis going on, not really true to any particular style. Eh, I don’t usually care about that either, but this is just kinda all over the place, like an overly-ambitious homebrewer who never figures out how to bring it all together. Good not great, glad I had a chance to taste it.

Nice malty sweet aroma with chocolate hints. Soft brown color with a small head. Full and creamy palate. Toasted malts, muted sweetness, chocolate and vanilla.

Can. Dark brown. Somewhat sweet at first than rolls to dryness. Several layers to this one. Im not sure this beer knows what it is.....would have guessed brown before a stout or porter of any kind. Enjoyed as a porch beer. Thx Anthony W.

Dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of nuts, toast, and hint of coffee. Medium to full body. Palate echoes the nose with flavors of toast, nuts, coffee, and a hint of chocolate. Decent length on the finish that leaves you with a pleasantly bitter coffee flavor.
