on guest tap at The Hourglass Brewery. Black in color with spare creamy light brown head. Aroma is chocolate malt with some booziness. Full bodied, creamy on the palate with soft carbonation. Lightly sweet with chocolate notes and some fruitiness. Pretty good.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2015 Beautiful dark coffee color with a weak aroma of burnt caramel. Its taste is well balance with mocca and molasse but misses out on precision. A small bitterness that makes this Baltic Porter refreshing. Cheers!

Juste bien dosé, pas trop lourd, j’aime beaucoup celui-là! La mousse est fine et crémeuse. En plus de la torréfaction, je goûte des fruits rouges foncé et de la vanille. Une excellente alternative aux comparables plus forts en alcool et moins axés sur la buvabilité...

Bottle. Pitch black with a huge mocha head with great retention and nice lacing. Aroma is coffee, roasted malt, dark chocolate and herbal notes. Flavor is similar to the aromas with a rich malty profile, herbal hops and a moderately bitter finish with a hint of alcohol. Medium body with below average carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. Pretty good and well balanced.

Poured into an English pint glass, the appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a white to off white foamy head dissipates appropriately. Messy run about lace. The aroma starts off with a ruddy milk and dark chocolate blending with some candied dark fruits. Seems like there’s a subtle dried hoppy grassiness underneath. Light earthiness. The flavor brings together the previously mentioned aromas sweetly layered with a delicate roast underneath. Smooth bitter yet somewhat wet sort of dark fruity aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionable smooth feel to it. Low carbonation yields to the wet feel on my tongue. Overall, nicely done Baltic Porter that I would have again.
