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 NÝrrebro 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.

SPDickerman (932) - Texas, USA - JAN 22, 2011
Pours jet black with thin brown head. Smells malty, like coffee and faint chocolate, and smoky. Tastes like smoked coffee, not too bitter, and faint sweetness. Full-bodied, smooth texture and faint mouth-carbonation, Left Hand Fade to Black (volume 2) finishes smooth and satisfying.

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 canít wait to finish the rest of them.

Smoked Porterís are always a good choice, so when I found this Smoked BALTIC Porter, I knew I was in for a treat. Great tasting beer. Thick, heavy, rich. This is their 2010 version of the Fade to Black series. Started with a Stout, and taking a step back to Porter. I am not complaining.

RasterMaster (258) - , Oklahoma, USA - JUL 3, 2011
Dark black-brown pour into thin tan head that quickly dissipates into a ring of swirling bubbles and fading lacing. Aroma of roasty chocolate malt and nuts. Initial flavor of dark chocolate, roasted caramel malt, and dark brewed coffee that fades into a bitter creamy finish.

Rich fruit, blackcurrant, chocolate and licorice on the nose. Medium bodied, sweet, slight woodsmoke, coffee and gentle astringent finish. Good head retention.

Aroma: chocolate, grass, citrus, smoke, smoke, Appearance: black, Taste: light sweetness, medium bitterness, Palate: full body, creamy, long finish, Overall: Tremenda porter, super ahumada, chocolate, muy bien equilibrada. Algo de lupulo citrico en un momento del trago. 100% repetible.

An intense porter if I ever had one. This beer has the most intense smokey flavor I have ever tried. Dark...
