On tap at the Nashville location. Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and bitter chocolate. Flavor of roasted malt, some sweet malt, and chocolate. Robust palate. Great baltic porter, I really enjoyed it!

Dark brown, tan cover. Aroma is roasty, chocolate, sweet, some licorice. Taste is chocolate, sweet, light roast. Rustyham (1836) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - DEC 31, 2010
No aroma, flat nearly black body. flavor is dirt and caramelized sugar. This is not subtle, warming, or entertaining. It seems pretty half-assed. hot Mess. drowland (9186) - Georgia, USA - DEC 28, 2010
12/26/10. On tap at the Nashville location. Rich mahogany pour with a fluffy khaki head that laces quite a bit. Light dusty chocolate aroma that hints at chocolate milk. Sweet chocolate flavor with a dash of sour and lingering coffee bitterness. Not bad! Braudog (6907) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - DEC 27, 2010
Draft at the Little Rock location. Dark black with a powerful head of foam. Rich with dark fruit and bitter licorice. Little bit of a light chocolate tinge carries the day. Enjoyable on a wickedly cold day. (#4047, 12/17/2010)

Had on tap at the Nashville brewpub. Poured a very dark brown color with some ruby edges and a nice fluffy head. Smell of malts. The taste was of dark chocolate, with roasted malt coming through. NachlamSie (3600) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 11, 2008
Draught. Pours a dark cola brown with a tan head. The nose is musty with suggestions of chocolate and minimal soy sauce and coffee. The flavor is hearty with dark chocolate and even slightly oaty with toffee hinted at in the finish. This comes across more like a stout. It’s not a very faithful interpretation of the style, but I liked it nonetheless. SmellGood (339) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - OCT 29, 2007
This beer was spectacular! Nice flavor and alcohol was not overwhelming. A certain warmness left me wanting another. KDorgan12 (169) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - OCT 26, 2007
Draft-Memphis. Maybe I was thinking imperial porter but this just seemed a bit too light on the palate. Nose wasn’t as roasty as I would have expected...that being said, still a satisfying beer. I think it may be a victom of my preconceptions for the style it references. bleeng (1705) - Houston not near Beersel., Texas, USA - JUN 18, 2007
Tap in Little Rock 2/21/07. I’m not familiar with this style so I cannot verify the authenticity of the style. Black color with a medium head. Server too cold. Alcohol taste. Gets thicker and tastier with warming.
