Side by side with a homebrew clone. Not cloned and not as good as the homebrew. This is a six monthish old bottle and has medium smoke and roast aromas. This black pour. some smoke and oxidative(slightly) notes take away from the overall experience. This is caramelly and smooth and clean but a little bleh. Ok.

Thanks to Beerlando for bringing this growler. Aroma is fairly light, reminds me of smoked ham. Flavor is lightly smoked with a little more coffee and/or chocolate in there. Very good.

Hand bottle. Pours a stills viscous chocolate black. Vanilla, chocolate, coconut, and a touch of cherry pit all wrapped up in a light smokiness. Nice slick and creamy mouth feel. The base Baltic is solid with nice light chocolate and vanilla notes along with some toasted coconut. I do pick up subtle notes from the barrel and a touch of roastiness. Enjoyable, but I would totally welcome some more some flavor. I will try and get a bottle when it is released and may revisit then. Thanks Josh!

pitch black with a mild tan head. thick moutfeel and low carbontion. smokey nose, flavor of initial dark malts with a large smokeiness coming through followed by some chocolate notes. tough to drink due to smokiness but a great complex flavor

Rate #997. Bomber from trade to glass. Unique beer that got better as it warmed and the more I drank. Slightest of smoke in aroma slight dark fruits and a couple other I couldn’t quite identify. Mouthfeel was a 4. Nice carbonation. Different type of hop slight bitter finish. Taste is aroma and a little bit of roast. Good not great
