3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
1/02/2011: Left Hand Fade to Black... Aroma: Didn’t know that this beer changed from the last time I had it, so the aroma was quite a surprise at first. I love the meaty smoke laced with heavily caramelized malts and hints of chocolate. Appearance: Very dark brown, nearly black; mostly opaque; repestable tan-colored head. Flavor: Delicious blend of smoked meat, dark chocolate, roasted and caramelized malts with just the right amount of residual sweetness, roasted coffee beans and some cacao nibs in the finish mingled with some charred wood/charcoal flavors; FANTASTIC synergy of flavors! Palate: Medium-full body; slightly thick and creamy on the tongue; nice body that supports the flavors well. Overall: Very fine beer; more smoke is always appreciated, but this has just enough smokiness to make me happy and not offend smoked beer newbies too badly...
16 fl. oz. draught enjoyed at Peach’s in Yellow Springs, Ohio. Rating #333 for this beer.

Creamy dark beer. Some notes of slice, chocolate and I think dark/dried fruits. Not aggresive, but quite modest and gentle.

Solid. Solid. Solid. Such a reliable beer. Refreshing with a hint (but not too much) of roasted malts, not too thick like some porters.

A - Pours pitch black with a 1 finger tan head that holds good retention. Diamond patterns of lacing.
S - Roasted coffee beans, rich chocolate, lots of malty lactose, campfire smoke.
T - Smoked meat, wood, and chocolate dominate. Dark ground coffee, bittering hops, subtle alcohol, black pepper, with a little sourness mixed in. Sweetness is in there to balance out the savory smoke. Finishes with small smokey hop bite.
M - Full bodied with low carbonation, very silky.
Fantastic! A well constructed smoked Baltic Porter. This provides exactly what you’d expect. Full on smoke mixed with the Baltic style. It’s porter nirvana! Great mix of sweet, sour, and bitter. One of the best I’ve had from this brewery.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black with ruby lowlights and a creamy thin brown crown that sticks around. Aroma of smoke, roasted malt, light chocolate, campfire and smoked meats. Taste is weird with smoked malts, light coffee, mild peat and a hint of chocolate. Semi sweet and a touch gritty.
