2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Black, with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts and herbal hops. Also on flavour the herbal hoppiness and the unripe coffee berries (they’re not beans) overwhelming the caramel and any touch of chocolate it could have had. A bit salty, it is just too herbal and metallic to feel like a good Baltic Porter. Not my favourite.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ Left Coast Brewing tap room: Poured d dark blackish colored brown with no formation of head other than a thin O-ring shape. The aroma is subtle yet has an obvious smell of roast dark malts but overall the smell is very subdued and tame. The drink is semi-sweet with a rich roasty profile of malts that give off a taste of coffee bean.
