3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz capped bottle from Belmont. Pours a very dark black with a brown tint and a tight small light tan head. Nose is very light and balanced, but the main aromas are roasty chocolate malt, hints of nutty coffee and light milky sweetness...stylistic. Nice tight carb and medium almost creamy feel. Favor has a nice balance of roasty coffee and chocolate to the malt along with a caramel sweetness and some nutty undertones. Maybe a bit heavy on the caramel/toffee sweetness, otherwise tasty and easy drinking.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: This one pours a very dark amber color, sort of a brownish copper, with a khaki colored head.
S: Very heavy on the toffee, with a real nuttiness about the beer. Quite creamy and toasty with just a hint of roasted malt. Maybe a touch of chocolate, brown sugar, and molasses.
T: Nicely toasty with plenty of caramelized sugar flavor and solid toffee. A hint of coffee as well as minimal roasted malt flavor. Intensely nutty with a solid creaminess that is prevalent throughout the time I drank my glass of this. Just an ever so slight bitterness.
M: The body is medium with a moderate level of carbonation.
D: Very different from other Baltic Porters that I’ve had. Not a ton of roast, but really quite enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown hue; handsome tan beads of lace adorn my glass.
Aroma is right on: roasty as hell, malty in yo face, smells dry. But a bit too dry on the palate; taste fades into desert-like dryness before I can sufficiently enjoy it. Tasty.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Nearly black, moderate to large frothy sand colored head, very nice lacing.   Roasty nose.   Otherwise faint cocoa.   Roasty on the tongue, slight tartness.   Seems like a regular Porter to me.   Slightly sweet, a little lactose on the backside.   Body is nearing the thin side.   Roasty finish.   Pretty simple overall.   Nothing special.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz. bottle, pours a red-tinged dark amber brown with a small beige head. Aroma of light caramel malts, toasted nuts, some dark fruits - very light notes. Flavour is a bit metallic, with light notes of dark fruits, toasted nuts and caramel. Very weak, with a thin palate. Uncomplex in all aspects. Drinkable, but nothing more.
