COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fade to Black, that time of year when the light seems to fade away. We drift further into the darkness with each passing day. Volume 2- Smoked Baltic Porter is inspired by our collaboration with Nørrebro in Denmark. This mischievous cousin to Smoke Jumper has a penchant for pillaging and burning everywhere he goes. Smoked malts redolent of the burned thatched roofs in villages and towns all over Northern Europe impart flavors to warm the spirit of invading hordes far from home. You finally have something in your hand darker than the winter night sky.

martinrumsam (459) - BARNSTAPLE, Devon, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2012
bottle pours almost black with tan head that becomes a thin film . aroma is mild notes of coffee , toasted malt , esters . taste reflects the aroma with toasted motes prominent . low carbonation gives a good mouthfeel . Alcohol level is managed well - long finish with lingering warmth in the throat

rosenbergh (6105) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 21, 2012
355 ml bottle. Bottled 01/25/12. From bierzwerg.de.
Black colour with small tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, ash, mild sweetness and liquorice. Flavour is roasted malt but even more sweet sugary malt with some notes of liquorice and anise. Not very much Baltic Porter but tasty anyway. Smooth.

Bottle from Ølbaren, Copenhagen
Black color, with medium sized brownish creamy head. Mild aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, smoke, cream. Medium body strength; quite powerful roasted malt and dark chocolate flavor; the smoke is only hinted, or at least covered; the final is weaker. Quite strong bitterness.
Ordinary; rich in chocolate, poor in smoke.
