7.0% version, clearly intended for the US market. Thanks so much Meantime for allowing us a look in on the action, you are too kind! Clear deep amber - brown beer, tidy cream - tan colour head. Palate is smooth and a little crisp. Dry malts, trace of dark chocolate and very mild coffee. Light lactose. Little paper. Mild fruits before a light dry finish. Very bland, not even getting any peat. Poor show all round from Meantime.
Bottle. Pours dark brown with tan head. Nose and taste of earthy peat smoke, cocoa, dark bread (danish rye?), clove, tobacco, toasted nuts, old coffee and wood. Complex. Medium body. brokensail (16633) - Dublin, California, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Nearly black in color with an off-white head. Notes of dark fruit, coffee, roasted malt, licorice, and molasses. A moderate sweetness, some light smoke, and a bit of chocolate. The flavor is a little bland, but still good. Chocolate, roasted malt, dark fruit, and coffee are the main flavors. More subtle molasses and licorice notes. Very faint smoke in the background. bhensonb (15617) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 14, 2012
750 c&c from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours very dark brown with a creamy/foamy 3 finger tan head. Aromas of treacle and coffee. Med body. Thins as carb leaves. There’s a dark fruit and treacle aspect, and a moderate smoke/peat over coffee. It’s finishing towards dry. But the treacle still persissts.

Draft. Dakr brown pour. It doesn’t surprisingly hit you over the head with any type of peat, it is there but subtle, I kind of like that, has some dark fruits and obvious chocolatey bread overtones, not bad. mR_fr0g (13190) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2012
Walnut colour with a lively off white head. Nutty, chocolate aroma very dry finish and lively carbonation. slowrunner77 (12591) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 24, 2014
"A pretty solid beer, though not a standout in the baltic porter class. roast and anise are the two key aromas and flavors here. Medium bodied and a touch alcoholic, though not overly so. Lasting dry cocoa fruity aftertaste." deyholla (12033) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 21, 2012
On tap at Bangers & Lace. Pours black with a yellowish brown head that dissipates to to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has notes of dark grains with a bit of roast and oak with a hint of backing peat. Flavor is creamy up front with roasted malts that are joined by a nice light peat note in the finish. allmyvinyl (10932) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 2, 2015
