Nice quite dark roasted aroma of cocoa and licorice. Lightly sweet flavor with light tar and charcoal. Quite well balanced and nice if you like a super roasty Baltic. riversideAK (6265) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - FEB 7, 2011
Bottle shared by suzygreenberg. Thanks Ben! Nose is really nice, dark roasted malts, dark fruit, nutty notes, chocolate, lightly tart fruits. Pours dark brown pretty much black, nice tan head. The flavor is roasted initially with notes of almost charred malts, lots of sweet dark fruits, caramel, lightly tart in the finish. Dry with some residual sugary sweetness in the finish. Alcohol is masked. An enjoyable baltic for sure! GandGKevin (934) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JAN 30, 2011
Bomber. Thanks to zizzybalubba! Pours black with a two finger brown head. Muted aromas which was probably due to the fact that I served it too cold and with the temp outside hovering around 37 it never warmed up. Flavor of dark roasted chocolate, caramel, dark fruit and nuts. Finishes with a slight metallic tinge. Overall a very good baltic from Foothills. mlunger12 (645) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 28, 2011
On tap at foothills, pours dark with a slight tan lacing. Burnt aroma, roasted coffee, first sip is coffee, very smooth. Interesting. nimbleprop (8935) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 26, 2011
22oz bottle pours a watery, nearly opaque black with a thin, creamy, beige head. Sweet aroma, molasses, nuts, toasted bread, malty, Belgian chocolate, some caramel. Flavor is sweet, malty sugar, a little vanilla, toasted bread, brownie batter, caramel frosting, licorice, a little dark fruit and some dried fruit. Sounds like it might be cloying, but it isn’t. Finish is full bodied and dry. Very nice.

Appearance: Pours a midnight brown with no head.Ibrew2or3 (8913) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 23, 2011
Aroma: Milk chocolate, brownie, licorice and herbal hops.
Taste: Burnt roast, big spicy herbal hops, black coffee and ashes.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with fizzy, lively carbonation.
Overall: Solid, dry, bold, highly drinkable. The alcohol is well hidden in this balanced beer.
Tasted at the big “SeaBass has got to go” tasting courtesy of fishingnet. Pours amber with full tan head. The modest aroma is sweet with some dark fruity esters mixing with caramel as well as sugary malt sweetness and seems to lack earthiness this style typically has. The taste is dark roasted malts, prunes, a bit of fig meat note, chocolate and then a pleasing level of earthiness into the finish. Nice stuff. blutt59 (6609) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 19, 2011
