COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark and mysterious this 150th Batch of Pisgah beer is a tribute to our homebrew roots. Combining the rich chocolate flavor of a Baltic Porter with the subtleness of a special Belgian yeast strain, the Cosmos is born....

Bottle from OldGrowth. Thanks! Poured an opaque dark brown color. The head was one finger high and reduced quickly to a thin lasting film. Smelled of apple liqueur, molasses, bitter chocolate and spices. Medium bodied and slightly sweet with a splash of booze. Carbonation was on the higher end of the spectrum. Roasted malt dominated the flavor with dark fruit, caramel apple, and spice accents.

Very dark brown cloudy beer. Light frothy dry palate. Bitterish but tangy dark malt with a splash of cola. Finishes creamy dry and with bitter coca cola. Just about hangs together.

Reviewed from notes. Pours a dark brown with a slight light tan head. A tad bit of lacing. Nose brings some dark fruits and roasted malt. Good notes of chocolate. The taste is dark fruits, dates, burnt sugar, some roasted malt, and a bit of alcohol. The feel is nice with the flavors playing nice with the slight alcohol tinge. Drinks quite well and is really nice overall. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-03-2010

Aggressively carbonated bottle from Bruisn’ Ales. The carbonation keeps at bay the baltic Porter taste which is there and balance porter/a little sourness malted down, but a muted flavour. Decent drinkability and the alcohol is hidden.Black body with nominal head.

paiste2002 (186) - Saugus, California, USA - DEC 5, 2010
750ml bottle dated February 2008. Pour is deep dark brown with a huge tan head that slowly fell away into a creamy tan layer across the surface of the beer that lasted the entire time this tasty brew was in my glass. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, caramel and a slight hint plum. Flavor was much the same roasted malt, Chocolate and caramel a very nice porter, then you get the Belgian yeast and a touch of plum that sends this one over the edge. Medium body with a long roasty, malty yeasty finish. Very nice beer that held up very well with two plus years of age.

Draft at the brewery. It has deep brown hue with very little head. The aroma is Chinese medicine and the flavor is Chinese stomach pills.

devilben02 (281) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 19, 2010
Pours a deep, dark brown with a thin, lingering, creamy head. The aroma is exactly what I expected based on the description on the bottle: chocolate and dark roasted malt sweetness of a Baltic Porter but with the Belgian yeast adding a little something different. The flavor is a bit more skewed towards the chocolate flavors but with that yeasty tang underneath. The combination is something like a quad that used more roasted malts than usual, but with a candy-sweet finish develops as the beer warms.

750mL Bottle. Big aroma of strong roast, plums and caramel. Pours a tawny mahogany brown, with a coffee-colored head. Flavors are a little odd, I don’t dig the Belgian strain on top of this and am really not sure how it can be a Baltic Porter. The roast is decent, but oxidation plays an unfortunate role this early in the game. Texture is very dry and airy. This is a decent dry Belgian Stout, but wanting a Baltic Porter, I’m a bit let down.
