Bottle. Deep red, dark colour and not so creamy head. Not strong, refreshing aroma of hop is crisp. Almost full body, and dark malt flavour like black currant and coffee. Dry finish with a little astringent and grassy hop-bitter. A outstanding one of the baltic porters!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Toasted soy, lightly chocolate, doughy, dry aroma. Standard 12oz longneck, OK label, though Smuttynose labels suck -- Chronos or something, and engraved. Mmm. Seedy bitterness, bittersweet cocoa, soy and pretensive grain (millet, buckwheat, etc.) notes. Medium body. Slick mouthfeel though it loses a little carbonation. Stiffly bitter, gunpowder finish with bakers chocolate overtones. Market Square Liquors.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours pitch black with a finger worth of mocha brown head that settles to a ring and leaves a couple soapy ropes of lace. Nose involves rich dark chocolate, wood smoke, minty herbals, suggestions of ham hocks, chocolate covered raisins, a bit of licorice, plenty of toasted malt. Decently sweet, fairly bitter. Medium to full bodied, fairly oily, active, with a long smoky roasted finish. About as good as it gets for the style. That smoky factor is wonderful.
