4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at The Bruery thanks to BMan1113VR! Pours deep, clear ruby looking black. Nose is savory, hazelnut, big dark chocolate. Taste is dense, heavy waxy dark chocolate brick, powerfully bitter. Palate is mildly acidic, very hoppy, huge chocolate brick density. Feels like 8-9% in density but no booze or sugar to detract. Impressive, boss baltic porter.
