Bottle shared at Hunaphu Day. Black pour with a creamy tan head. Nose displays creamy chocolate, vanilla beans, espresso and earth. Nicely melded flavors that mimicked the aroma. Medium heavy bodied and low carbonation

Bottle at the Triad bottle share at Foothills organized by Mike. Dark chocolate heavy with a nice warming grainy presence. Borders on feeling hot at times. Solid.

Black with dark tan head, about a finger. Aroma of coffee, vanilla, brown sugar, roasted malt. Taste is balanced coffee bitter with hints of smoke and a sweet alcohol finish. Full bodied and creamy with flat carbonation.

A monster indeed. Thick, full-bodied beer. Strong roasted malt, but also with some hops. Very good.

Bottle from JCB. Thanks! Deepest of black pour with orange-tan head. Nose is a mix of dark, bitter chocolate, roast malt, vanilla cream, caramel, molasses, and faint, floral dark fruits. Flavor is decadent dark chocolate, light caramel syrup, toffee, dark fruit that finishes with a mildly ashy roast and more chocolate. Some alcohol notes throughout. Truly a big, coating mouthfeel. Lingering dark chocolate covered sweet caramel and dark fruit. This is a monster indeed. Highly recommended.

22 oz. bottle from The Greenville Beer Exchange, Greenville, SC (bottled December 18, 2012). Pours black with a rich brown head. Aroma of cocoa, roasty malts, and a hint of dark fruit. The flavor is rich with heavy amounts of roasted espresso, bitter chocolate, and roasted malt with a hint of dark fruit on the finish. Recommended chaser, a gallon of water. While heavy, the flavor is outstanding and this is one of the finest Baltic porterís I have tried.

Thanks for the share Matt. This porter was bold and creamy with lots of caramel and coffee finishing with a dark chocolate kiss. VERY drinkable at 10% so watch out!

Bomber pours a dark brown/black with a medium reddish tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, leather, sweet wet tobacco, caramel, and alcohol, reminds me of wet dog food. Taste of sweet chocolate, mild dark fruits, finishing with dry leather tobacco and coffee. Nice!

Thanks, Matt, for sharing. Aroma is big roasted malt and bitter dark chocolate. Lightly fruity nose, also. Pour is oily black with a tan head. Flavor is big roast and dark chocolate, light coffee, some anise, and molasses. Nice.
