4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Colour...basically black with a thick tan head. Nose...oak, vanillin, toffee. Palate...creamy though not esp thick. Lots of oak and some smoke with an ashen/char aspect that exists throughout the palate. There’s plenty of chocolate, as well, but in a subdued manner that just happens to be omnipresent through the experience.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Sam’s Quick Stop in Durham. 750ml. Pours a black, opaque with a very small, light tan head. Defined aroma of chocolate, vanilla, dark fruits and roasted malts. Also the bourbon barrel notes came through nicely. The taste is vanilla, chocolate, cocoa powder, raisins, oak and bourbon. The body is medium, the finish is mostly dry. Medium carbonation. Lingering coffee bitterness. Very well done.

A very good Baltic porter all around. Pours a thick black with a creamy tan head. Smells of vanilla, cinnamon and chocolate. Taste has lots of vanilla ice cream, with some chocolate coming in later. Some oak in the finish. Delectable. Had in the bottle.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark and murky with a nice finger of foam. Deep chocolate and expresso aroma but little oak or bourbon in the aroma. Plenty of wood and coffee on the tongue. Dried dark fruits show up the the long finish. Medium body. Decent alcohol presence.
