Bottle shared by Nate into a Lost Abbey glass. A black pour with, a medium tan head, ok retention and lacing nothing special...Light aroma of light bitter coffee, chocolate, and too much alcohol...The taste is decent not at all what is expected for me when I’m drinking a baltic porter, I want something sweet but with strong flavors. This is not at all sweet, way to much alcohol, a little roasted coffee. An average baltic porter, wanted to like it, just not a great bp.

Smooth. Just plain smooth. Great label, inky brew with a nice tan head. Thanks to LuckyDog for bringing this back from the brewpub and splitting it with us up at work. Toasted, and with the right amount of roast. Pretty dry for the style. Parched soy. Good creamy mouthfeel. A very nice pint.

A: Pours a very dark brown color with a nice off-white, perhaps khaki colored, head. S: Nice and roasty with a bit of a coffee aroma to it as well as some dark chocolate. There may be some hints of dark fruits, like black cherries or currants. Touches of char and molasses are also present. T: Similar things going on in terms of the flavor. Strong roasted malts, dark chocolate, and coffee. There’s a touch of creaminess to it that I wasn’t quite anticipating, but found enjoyable either way. The mild molasses character is there on the tongue and quite nice. M: Medium in body with a moderate carbonation and smooth feel on the tongue. D: A really solid beer that was easy to drink and which I found enjoyable overall.

750ml bottle shared with dosbeerigos. Dark pour with very little carbonation, not a whole lot of head to speak of. Aroma is malty, chocolaty. Flavor is dominated by bitter chocolate with a malty presence that hangs long on the palate. I guess I was expecting more from this, but it’s still a solid beer.
