3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap. Dark brown black. Nice lingering bit of head. Scattered lace. Slight raisiny nose. Full, rich body. Nice peanut butter quality in taste and mouth feel. Like a Baltic porter "light."

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Wolverine. Pitch black pour wtih a white creamy head that fades to a ring. Love the complex aroma. Raisins, peanuts, caramel, licorice, figs, chocolate, raspberries, and oak. Tastes very good too and there’s a surprisingly strong fruit flavor to this. Lots of raisins and dark fruit. Almost like Belgian quad without the yeast flavor. Definitely still taste the raspberries and chocolate, some nice nuttiness, some wood. This is a excellent baltic porter. Delicious beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from the tap at the 15th annual MBGSF. Pours a hazy semi dark brown with a dark brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma kind of has a roasted malt note with some chocolate and a bit of earthy dark grains. Flavor has a dry creamy chocolate note with some roasted malts and coffee that adds a slight bitterness.
