4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bomber pours with a deep dark body that supports a mocha colored head of foam. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, earthy dark chocolate, some chocolate brownie and then a light amount of molasses. The taste delivers rich malt deepened dark roasted malts mixed with dark chocolate goodness and then getting into some vanilla bean and spicy black strap molasses. Wow! This is dynamite dark roasted goodness. Great stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle shared at Natifest- I missed who opened this, though. Pours a near-black color, opaque, with a small tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, molasses, syrup, and roasted malts. The flavor is the same. Full-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, smooth, roasty mouthfeel. Really nice, big, bold Baltic porter.
