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 didn’t 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 doesn’t fit well into any style.
