4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a super dark ruby red. Aroma is of red wine, tannins, cocoa, coffee, acidity, and citrus. Taste is of chocolate, coffee, cream, tannins, dry red wine, oak, vanilla, sour grapes, acidity. For those of you who are wine buffs, this is a fantastic beer. I work at a winery and craft beer is my true love, but this is a fantastic take combination of both styles. The wine characteristics take over after you get all of the chocolate, creamy espresso coffee, porter notes. Very interesting beer.

Main thing is- doesn't taste like a Ltic Porter. That reflects on body & overall score. Otherwise pretty good brew.

[Bottle] Pours black without much head to it. Nose is of red wine, smooth malts and wood. Taste is heavy on the red wine. Fig, plum and wooden notes are prominant as well. Decent balance. Roasty finish. A pretty good beer. Interesting for sure. Tasting notes from 2/2014.

2014-02-28. Very dark brown body with a small tan head. 3+ Aroma is fruity and alcoholic, sort of vinous tangy quality. Flavour is rich and vinously tangy, fruity, moderate oak character. Rich malty character below, lingering oak in the finish. Medium bodied palate, modest carbonation. 3++ Pretty nice, it grows on me. Bottle shared by Blankboy

Thanks to blankboy for sharing this gem. Thanks to blankboy for this. Black pour with a thin white head. The nose has a softly vineous aroma with a bit of vanilla and some lovely soft fruitiness. A touch of licorice and a bit of earthy character. Moderate tartness with a little bit of soft malt sweetness and some herbal character.

Fantastic red wine aroma and taste. Balances nicely with the Baltic Thunder base. Dry finish, fruity, floral, a hint of smokiness. Delightful.
