Bottle at Andy and Maxís fantasy tasting. Pours a nice deep dark charcoal brown near black with a nice lasting tight beige head. Aroma is lightly hopped, a touch of mint and pine over big chocolate malts, smooth nutty sweetness, toast, and light burnt hint with a touch of diacetyl but still good. Flavor is clean, with good chocolate hints, roast, toffee moderate sweetness and a light leathery earthy finish to dry it out some. Solid porter.

Bottle bonus from tarheels86. This was pretty good, actually. Nose was kinda subtle with nice mellow milk chocolate and light roast. Flavor is very much the same - not exactly as rough as most really Baltic Baltic Porters Iíve had - roast, chocolate, light licorice, cane sugar.

Unfortuantely, I canít write many good things about this porter. The head is very lacking, as it disappated to almost nothingness very quickly and left just about no lacing around the glass. There isnít much to the nose; only a trace amount of maltiness and a light hop aroma. The body is extremely light and the flavors are very bland. I have enjoyed several of Dominionís beers in the past, so I was really looking forward to trying this one. But I was extremely disappointed.

Bottled. Opened with a magnificent pfft, but the expected gush never came. Poured deep brown with a well-retained tan head. The aroma picked up rye right away on the bright fore, paired with near-metallic notes over semi-sweet chocolate and licorice.. just a little bit burnt.. there was just some odd malt character going on that I couldnít put a finger on. The flavor found the same chocolates, burnt licorice, and sweeter caramelly malts at the core, with spicy rye and vanilla around.. finished with an odd sweet/spicy hit and some ugly clashing stuff. Medium-bodied with too much carbonation on the palate.. the rye was interesting in here, but the rest of the beer didnít come together that well.

pours brown with amber gleaming edges. It has a huge creamy brown head with aromas of chocolate, raisins, coffee, lactose and some tart berries. The flavor is dark and roasted with some sweet berries and chocolate. Kind of thin. Nice roasted quality, but the flavors are not as intense as I would like from the style.
