This one poured a darker brown color with a beige head. Aroma was of smoke, dark fruits, and medium roast. Falvor was similar, grapey, caramel, smoke and roast.

Rich Baltic porter with aromas of caramelized malts, coffee, and chocolate. Not so complex, but a tasty, full-bodied beer.

12oz bottle from total wine in tampa. Black pour. Roasty aroma - little vinegar vibe. Tastes are leather, toffee, raisins, earthy, dark chocolate bitter. Thin palate. Little metallic in the finish. Interesting, but kinda rough for my tastes. Definitely a slow sipper.

Love it. Dark brown with tan head. Aroma of caramel malt, chocolate and vanilla. Taste follows nose. I could make this a regular.

12 oz bottle for 2.49. Pours black with a slight amber hue and a tan head. Looks nice. Smells like a porter; chocolate, malts and a little vanilla too. Tastes similar. Body is thinner than I like in a porter though. A good imperial porter.

Old school English-style porter. Pours black with good mocha head and lacing. Dark chocolate with nut, some coffee, some booze and caramelized malt. Finishes sour after a moment. Bottle.

Sixer from Sam’s Quik Shop. Pours a sorta thin-looking deep dark brown with a minimal head. Nose shows chocolate and plums, as well as some toffee and fig hints. But mostly I got a shit-ton of chocolate and plums.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Nose is dark and strong with a lot of roasting and just a hint at some dark bitterness in there. Taste is dark and bitter with just a hint at some chocolate underneath. Nice dark drink.
