COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Big, dark, chocolatey, with a hint of coffee. Strikingly drinkable at 7.25%! The average depth of the Baltic Sea is 30 Fathoms….the depth of this porter is immeasurable.

Growler at RBWG Grand Tasting. Pours a dark brown color with a small khaki colored head. The aroma and flavor have some roasted malts, chocolate, herbal notes, a splash of coffee, just a bit thinner than other Baltic Porters I really enjoy.

Growler at the Triad bottle share at Foothills organized by Mike. Almost like a dark saison. Pours dark dark brown, but grainy flavor with clove spice and a yeastiness to it. Slight pine in the finish. A bit odd but not bad.

Growler at RBWG 2014 grand tasting, thanks! Pours a clear deep brown with a brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has lots of bread and dark grains with just a touch of roasted malts. Flavor has lots of dark bread as well with only a bit of roasted malts and dark grains.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 12, 2013
On tap at TBC, Raleigh. Brimming carbonation on this dark brown pour, surprisingly vigorous somehow. Aroma was like a solid roasty porter with hop additions, chocolate malts and coffee too. A bit of burnt sugar and molasses in the taste, and the mouthfeel lacks the lactic quality one gets with most Baltics. Tasty but not exactly to style.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 30, 2013
Growler from the Brewery. Pours a bit lighter than most Baltics, but with a fairly generous light tan head, even after a few weeks. Nose shows chocolate, mild roast, some light cherries, and a fair amount of lactic creaminess... a little bit too much of the latter, but not in a totally bad way. Taste adds a bit of sweetness, more creaminess, and a light, dry finish. A lighter version of the style, for sure, and maybe not 100% true to form, but still a tasty and quite drinkable porter.

maxwelldeux (3802) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Draught. Pours a near black color with a small head. Nose is roasty with some slight dark fruit elements. Taste is just a tad sour with roasty bitterness to it. Very smooth drink. I like it.

Tap at trophy brewing co. Dark brown pour with athick chestnut colored head. Aroma yields nice roast, chocolate malts and dark fruit. Body is slightly thin for a baltic porter. Actually I even wonder if this was lagered... Either way all the beers tastes like expensive homebrew which, pains me to say.. But $6 for a pint of this is HIGHWAY ROBBERY. If your price point is going to be similar to the hill farmsteads, russian rivers & jackie o’s of the country then the beers i think need to be more up to par...
