COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This deep, rich, and, yes, inky brew is quite delicious and we expect to be quaffing a lot more of it once autumn settles in. Munich, Caramel, Special B, and Carafa malts and Perle hops are used in making this beer, the latest in Macís Big Bottle Series. Available August through October.

5000 (6265) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 24, 2013
Bottle:   Deep deep ruby, not even so much a brown, thin sudsy pale tannish head, little lacing.   Somewhat of a musty dark pitted fruit aroma, a bit stale and soy sauce like.   Roasty, a bit salty, almost like charred wood but its something else.   Lacks depth, richness, and body.   Mainly comes across as an over the hill weak dubbel that is only slightly roasty.   The roasted character comes and goes quickly.   Way too thin, and lacks depth and general Baltic Porter character.   Damnit!

Draught at REAL A Gastropub, Honolulu, HI
Dark mahogany color with creamy head. Mild aroma of caramel and apples. Smooth mouthfeel; Caramel flavor, with moderate residual sweetness, light fruity touch (apples), correct bitterness, some darker caramel and lightly roasted malts in the end.
Feels a bit industrial, but itís not bad.

Not many Baltic Porters out there in the region. Macís does a phenomenal job with this one!

Dogbrick (8007) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 19, 2012
Sample at the Pyramid Seattle brewpub. Pours a very dark brown color with a medium tan head that diminishes slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Medium body with a roasty character and notes of sweet malt, coffee and hops. The finish is short with a malty aftertaste.

rayOfBeer (668) - El Cerrito, California, USA - NOV 21, 2011
Bomber: pours dark red/brown with a smallish creamy tan head. Aroma is sweet with roasted malt, coffee, and cola. Flavor is malty sweet with a little cola, coffee, light roast grain, and toast. Palate is sticky with mostly sweet and a very light tartness. I rather like this beer, drinking on a chilly evening after dinner, dessert more or less.
