COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
My Turn Series #1: Dan brewed a Baltic Porter. Expect this thing to be dark and robust with a malty sweetness. A touch hoppier than the typical porter, the medium bitterness balance the malts and a deep chocolate or coffee aroma stops just short of burnt. If we did it right, this one oughta be one big, full-bodied beer.

Drake (10695) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Bomber shared at the 18th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering. This was a killer extra from Ghostface. Thanks! Pours a clear red-brown color with a medium sized frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of chocolate, raisin and toasted malts. The taste is raisin, chocolate, nuts and bitter hops. Medium bodied, creamy, smooth, average carbonation, low bitterness. Very nice beer, and not just because it has my name on it...

arminjewell (8673) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, dark black pour with nice creamy tan head, dissipates mostly but lasts. Aroma brings notes of roast, chocolate, dark fruits, some pine and slight green apple notes, some slight off creamy note, hints of espresso as well. Taste is sweet chocolate, caramel, hints of espresso, touch of dark fruits. Pretty nice, but some slightly off note in the aroma.

On tap at Sugar Maple. Pours near black with a creamy coffee brown head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma is full of roasted malts with a bit of coffee and hints of dark chocolate and smoke. Flavor has a lot of roasted malt but smooths out a bit toward the finish with dark chocolate and a hint of creamy coffee.

Bottle. Hearty looking very dark pour with a modest light brown head. Sweet dark malty aroma, molasses, light ash, dark fruits. Chewy dark caramel malt, chocolaty, with a little soy sauce, a little ashy smoke, and lots of figgy and pruney fruit acids. Nice sweetness, full bodied. Loved it.
