Dark with a milky brown head. Nose is chocolate and fruity sweetness. Flavor is bitter chocolate, lots of hops. Some sourness. Finishes very dry. Leaves kind of a weird film in the mouth.

Very nice appearance, dark brown with an orange-ishtan head. Aroma is malty and slightly smokey. Smokey flavor permeates with somewhat sweet maltiness, licorice with some very nice cocoa and milk chocolate.

Bottle. Dark dark espresso brown with a thick tan head. Huge malts and hops in the aroma, chocolate, coffee, smoke, alcohol, slgihtly salty, cherries, slight wood notes. Flavor is strong coffee and malts up front but diminishes quickly with a fairly bitter but bland finish. Oily and metallic at the end also, not so great. On the verge of being a really great beer, but didnít make it for me.

355ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours jet back, thick tan head. Big roast aromas with a chunk of resinous hops in there too. Chocolate and coffee on the taste, big bitter kick. Tastes as strong as it is. Nice.

I guess Baltic porter is as fair a classification as any for this odd beer. Black with a hop aroma. Flavor is primarily hops but there is rotting fruit and a hint of smoke as well. Heavy palate. Good and fairly innovative; it doesnít fit well into any style.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Iíve had a couple of these but have not had a chance to rate until now. Pours a deep dark, opaque chocolate brown with red hints at the edges. Medium foamy head (light brown). The aroma has light citrus hops, roasted malt, and seems fairly thick. The flavor held in the creamy/well balanced body starts with some lightly citrus hops and a hint of sweetness. This moves to toasty malts, coffee, unsweet coco, and ends with a sharp hint. Not to bad.

This corked and caged bottled brew marked June 2005 limited edition poured a long lasting large sized head of foamy fine to medium sized dark brown colored bubbles that left behind an opaque dark black body with no visible carbonation and a good lacing. It had a strange malty aroma that was quite different from the norm with dirty musty notes that I found hard to describe. Its mouth feel was initially smooth hoppy and malty and a mildly hoppy finish mixed with strong malty notes. It had a malty dark malt hoppy roasted malt flavor.
