Pailhead (6378) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - OCT 8, 2015
On tap: The aroma consists of moderate chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, toffee, and a hint of coffee. Itís a dark brown with a good amount of orange transparency. It has a small beige head that quickly fades to a minimal film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with moderate chocolate, caramel, and a hint of molasses. The finish has light am keeping with a touch of roast and coffee. Itís medium bodied with mild carbonation and a slightly sticky mouthfeel.

From growler, pours opaque black with no head. Apparently I lost carbonation in the hydro flask. Nose roasted malt, light chocolate and dark fruit. Taste coffee, some dark fruit and hint of dark chocolate. Moderate bitterness late palate. Iím sure this was better fresh and may revisit it in the future.

On tap at the original Fat Headís, this is a very drinkable Baltic Porter that hides its alcohol well. Flavors of smooth malts and dark fruit. Aromatic. Very good.
