12 oz. can purchased at @ Nikki’s Liquors, Providence, R.I. for $3.79. My Guinness pint shows soapy tan head that left spotty lace as I drank. The aroma is awesome!! Rich espresso beans, chocolate and caramel. The flavor has nice roasted malt, dark chocolate, deep roasted coffee beans. Some black coffee earthy bitterness toward the finish. The body feels light and that makes it dangerous since I can NOT taste the 10 %. Long lingering roasted notes and coffee flavors after the sip. Honestly, overall I think I maybe in love! Great coffee porter.

I will take a wild guess here and say that this is the first Baltic Porter I’ve enjoyed out of a can. Well it was packaged in a can, but I poured it into a glass, this time anyways. Smells of coffee and chocolate mostly with the coffee being the dominant aroma. Light earth, ash, light dark fruit and a touch of alcohol round out the nose. The flavor is sweet with caramel and burnt sugar , a hint of chocolate and a burro load of Juan Valdez. Light ethanol flavor and a touch of dark pitted fruit flavor add a hint of complexity. Medium to thick body with a creamy but coarse mouthfeel and a light level of carbonation. This is a nice porter if you like a coffee bomb.

Sharp taste of coffee grounds. Smooth chocolate undertones in the back. Definitely a strong hopping on this one too. Pretty intense and interesting.

VALIS (210) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Very dark brown pour, lots of head and lacing. Smell of chocolate and especially coffee -- lighter roasted coffee than you’ll usually smell in beer (kind of like Newman’s Own if you’ve ever had that). Bitter taste, fair amount of carbonation, alcohol is masked well.

Very dark brown with a thick tan head. Punchy, roasty malt. Hints of coffee, cocoa, vanilla. Smooth, long finish. Very nice. The alcohol strength is well hidden.

Dark black body, massive pale tan head, dense lacing. Intense coffee, underlying chocolate and roasted malts. Flavor is a bit charred, a bit abrasive. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, some bitterness and earth in the finish.
