Bottle shared by RussianDragon. Thanks man.
The beer is dark mahogany with an inch of soapy, foamy, beige head. Aromas of chocolates, dark fruit. Sweet fruits with some cherry notes. Chocolate covered cherries and perhaps a touch of espresso. Raisins, prunes, dates, figs, etc. Perhaps a mild hop bitterness might help to balance the equation a bit. Finishes sweet. Definitely a bottle for sharing, as the sweet character becomes cloying.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pours black with firm tan head. Aroma malty with slight roast. Fairly sweet dark caramel taste with molasses, slight coffee, cocoa. Medium body. Finish slightly bitter but not overly so.
Nice Baltic Porter, more delicate than I expected given Three Floyds reputation for aggressive beers.

Draught at Mikkeller Stockholm.
A nice session imperial stout. Lots of chocolate, coffee and some coffee grounds. Quite sweet for a Baltic porter.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
very small roastiness, quite a bit of chocolate malt. Very easy going 9.5% not really feeling it, but a balanced nice stout with a balanced focused flavour more so than extreme. Drinkable, but not a favourite.
