Black with thin beige head / Winey, somewhat hot nose of chocolate, coffee, and coconut / Medium to full, body, lightly chewy and creamy with gentle carbonation, good balance, and bitter finish / Smooth flavors of burnt coffee and bittersweet chocolate with dark fruit and coconut notes / Not remarkable, but a good, solid Baltic with no flaws.

A decent porter but overall it is decently roasty, decently malt, hint of cocoa, it is just average really.
