3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Three Floyds. Pours black with a foamy brown head. Aroma is of chocolate, coffee, vanilla, toasted malt, and lactic notes. Taste is of rich chocolate, lightly roasted coffee, vanilla, and caramel. Has a malt backbone that seems more toasty then roasted. Also has some lactic character to it as well. Lingering taste of chocolate, and the toasty malt. Body is lighter than I expected, and mouthfeel seems a tad too thin. No presence of the alcohol. lighter than I expected, but it was tasty. The thinness actually made it a beer that I could session.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub.
Roasted malt and slightly piney nose. Pours a nearly opaque dark brown; creamy off-white head never fully dissipates. Roast malt is the most prominent flavor attributes with a bit of chocolate some hop spiciness supporting. A hint of dried fruit makes an appearance. Smooth and creamy palate. Not as sweet or alcohol-ish as I typically expect from a Baltic porter. Still a plenty nice beer though, just not my idea of what a Baltic porter ought to taste like.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Had this on draft at 3 Floyd’s a few days before DLD weekend. Pretty dark -- seemed black in the dim light at the brewpub with a brown head and nice lacing. Bready & grainy aroma that didn’t seem very strong to me. A bit of chocolate and malt notes in the flavor with a definite alcohol presence. Full bodied, lightly carbonated -- leaves a chalky cocoa finish that combines with a bit of alcohol taste. Not real smooth enough to drink more than one, but if you don’t mind the alcohol aftertaste it’s OK as a sipping beer.

Reddish-brown pour with a brown head. Nice roasted malt aroma and chocolate. The taste was roasted malt, chocolate, deliscious. Very smooth beer. Easy and so enjoyable to drink. Nice lacing.

An excellent baltic porter. Very nice black with small tan head. A little dry going down, but after a while the smooth mouth feel gives you a velvet coating. Nice chocolate flavors, slight alcohol finish. Good
