3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Kind of a boring, straightforward take on the style, roasty and more stoutlike in flavor than most Baltic Porters I’ve had, but with the body that is typical of the style. Tasty and certainly worth the 3 bucks I spent, but not nearly as delicious as the peak beers in the style.

11.2 ounce bottle thanks to drsilverworm. The beer is a dark brown to black with a khaki head of foam. Good lacing and decent retention. The aroma has licorice, ash, roast, coffee, and caramel. The taste has a bit of smoke to it, but is mostly a roasty sweetness. I get a bit of vanilla and wood character from this beer as well. There really is quite a bit going on here. Thicker, more viscous mouthfeel with tiny carbonation bubbles keeping the beer lively as it coats the tongue. Really nice stuff.
