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.

albinotron (36) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 15, 2011
In a 12 oz. bottle. A great porter... but the name had me listening to metal all night, which annoyed my fiance. Smell is dark roasted malt, a bit of coffee. Taste had a dark chocolate/coffee thing going on for sure, not too fizzy. Thick, but not too heavy. I can’t wait to finish the rest of them.

Porter complessa e intrigante, con note di cioccolato, espresso, malti tostati, una leggera sfumatura di frutta scura secca e un amaro finale, esaltato nel finale piuttosto secco. Veramente esntusiasmante!

Bottle at home (bottled 01/25/11). Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of smoke, roasted malts, and dark chocolate. Full, creamy, taste of chocolate and malts. A very nice beer, too bad it is retired.

SetauketBrewer (21) - New York, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Beautiful pour. Beer is almost black but picks up just enough light for highlights. Very thin tan head on top, but has great lacing in the glass. On the nose is fresh baked dark German bread with wisps of peat smoke drifting through it. Very deep and roasty. Like the aroma, dark bread hits the tounge first washing down the middle. Roasted coffee bitterness grabs the sides of the tounge. The beer is thick and chewy on the palate, coating the tounge in a malty wash. Light bubbles of carbonation push the breadness back to end in a smoky finnish. Peat smoke lingers after the swallow.
