From the bottle. Slightly metallic aroma from the yeast, looks good, some roast on the palette followed by some bitterness. it’s ok but not something I’d drink again.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours out almost black with a 2-finger head. Aroma is of light roast, caramel, some chocolate and light earthy hops. Taste is better than aroma, nice deep roasty notes, light chocolat, with a solid citrusy hop bitterness going on throughout. Well done.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Batch Number 1) Per the label, a Baltic IPA. This starts with a nice blend of roasted notes and hop notes. Pours a clear, dark, ruby red, with a huge tan head. This is one tasty beer, full roasted notes with a long lingering finish. The hops are not as predominant as I expected, just making a token experience. There’s a slick mouthfeel, and the alcohol is really well hidden. I will definitely be picking up more of this beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown with a dark brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of roasted malt with a nice green hop note and a bit of grass. Flavor has roasted malts throughout with a bit of bitter chocolate and is backed by a nice fresh grass/pine hop note.
