Bottle. As Baltic Porter. It pours an almost clear body, brown in color and with a small, beige head. The aroma has some roasted malts, coffee and chocolate, with a faint touch of dried fruits and wet cardboard. Itís full-bodied and very soft on carbonation, with some warmth from the alcohol. Dried fruits, roasted malts and some coffee in the flavor. Sweet, roasted finish, yet it feels dry. A nice bitterness towards the very end. Starts pretty boring this one, but turns out to be quite nice. 140118

Bottle, courtesy of nimbleprop Ė thanks! Really excited to try this; itís been quite a while since Iíve had a new Baltic Porter. Pours deep brown with a huge tan head. Lots of roast in the aroma with a lighter mocha presence. Good roast flavors, cocoa, and mocha. Just a little licorice and lightly earthy. Finishes well. Doesnít strike me as traditional to the style, but enjoyable nonetheless.

cazort (514) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Pleasant from the first sip, but a little uninteresting. The high-ish alcohol content is exceptionally well-masked. From the taste, Iíd guess 5% or lower ABV so Iím impressed. When I pay attention, I detect a lot of things in the aroma, including the hints of licorice and chocolate mentioned in the commercial description. But I find this beer is easy to ignore...itís smooth and goes down easy, for better or worse, and I find the way it tastes makes me want to drink it fast, which isnít necessarily a good thing. I wish it were less sweet and more bitter. Itís sweet and a bit syrupy at times, especially towards the end when I feel it has lost most of its carbonation. The roasted aroma comes out most in the finish. Not particularly hoppy. I think I can detect the rye in the aroma. Interesting, but only when I pay attention to it. I would gladly drink this again, but wouldnít seek it out. Recommended if you want a dark beer for easy drinking, not if you want a really complex artisan brew.
