Poured from the bottle, the color is a deep, nearly opaque dark brown, with a thick, foamy beige head that quickly settles to a thin film surrounded by a foamy halo. The aroma is rich and potent, with notes of cocoa powder and licorice. The flavor likewise features a dark roasted malt profile of bittersweet chocolate and licorice, but a nice pine hop bitterness and a little booze is also in there. The very-fine carbonation provides a silky texture that works well with the slightly warming booziness.

From the cellar at Foothills brewpub, Winston-Salem NC in 2006. This hadnít been officially released yet so many thanks to Jamie for rustling up this preview from the cellar. Looked great - pitch black, with a lasting, thick brown head. Big burnt malt aroma with plenty of coffee and chocolate. Quite rich, dark chocolate on the palate with some firm hops and a strong roasty bitterness. Quite dry and fairly bitter. Full, firm mouthfeel but also smooth. Drinks nicely - the alcohol is not intrusive or distracting at all. Superb stuff and itís only going to get better.

bomber; clear dark brown with trace off-white head; stale coffee, sweet coffee, charred malt, light sweetness; smells pretty damn good; body is very thin with clean mouthfeel and fresh brown sugar mixed light stale fruit and roasted malt; mild twang in the finish; a little thin for my tastes; similar to my impressions of the nearby Duck Rabbit Baltic Porter, though its been a long time since Iíve had that

Nice quite dark roasted aroma of cocoa and licorice. Lightly sweet flavor with light tar and charcoal. Quite well balanced and nice if you like a super roasty Baltic.

Bottle shared by suzygreenberg. Thanks Ben! Nose is really nice, dark roasted malts, dark fruit, nutty notes, chocolate, lightly tart fruits. Pours dark brown pretty much black, nice tan head. The flavor is roasted initially with notes of almost charred malts, lots of sweet dark fruits, caramel, lightly tart in the finish. Dry with some residual sugary sweetness in the finish. Alcohol is masked. An enjoyable baltic for sure!

Bomber. Thanks to zizzybalubba! Pours black with a two finger brown head. Muted aromas which was probably due to the fact that I served it too cold and with the temp outside hovering around 37 it never warmed up. Flavor of dark roasted chocolate, caramel, dark fruit and nuts. Finishes with a slight metallic tinge. Overall a very good baltic from Foothills.

22oz bottle pours a watery, nearly opaque black with a thin, creamy, beige head. Sweet aroma, molasses, nuts, toasted bread, malty, Belgian chocolate, some caramel. Flavor is sweet, malty sugar, a little vanilla, toasted bread, brownie batter, caramel frosting, licorice, a little dark fruit and some dried fruit. Sounds like it might be cloying, but it isnít. Finish is full bodied and dry. Very nice.

Aroma: Milk chocolate, brownie, licorice and herbal hops.

Taste: Burnt roast, big spicy herbal hops, black coffee and ashes.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with fizzy, lively carbonation.

Overall: Solid, dry, bold, highly drinkable. The alcohol is well hidden in this balanced beer.

Tasted at the big ďSeaBass has got to goĒ tasting courtesy of fishingnet. Pours amber with full tan head. The modest aroma is sweet with some dark fruity esters mixing with caramel as well as sugary malt sweetness and seems to lack earthiness this style typically has. The taste is dark roasted malts, prunes, a bit of fig meat note, chocolate and then a pleasing level of earthiness into the finish. Nice stuff.
