Poured into a pint glass, the appearance was a moderate brown color with a bar pour’s kind of thin white foamy head. No lace.
The aroma had some light milk chocolate, light coffee and faint dark fruits. Some roasty tones as it opens up.
The flavor leans towards the chocolate and roasty malts. Sly bitterness from the coffee. Super low chocolate malty aftertaste with a brisk sort of semi-dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body, perhaps a bit less body than expected. Session Baltic Porter? Hmmmmm...might be.
Overall, aromas and flavors seem to be there but could have a bit more body for it to be a great Baltic Porter. Thorpe429 (5035) - , Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2011
Reviewed from notes. On tap before KTG 2010.
Pours a moderate brown with a light head. The nose is some light chocolate and coffee in addition to roasted malt. The taste is slight chocolate and roasted malt. Mild coffee character. Really doesn’t push anything too far and is a bit bland. Moderate body with a bit of alcohol. Drinks decently, but isn’t all that great.
Serving type: on-tap

on tap at the brewery. very good pitch black porter. A little bite to it, not as smooth as I prefer, but nonetheless good. boomer0813 (100) - denton, Texas, USA - SEP 30, 2009

(22oz bottle thanks to jkwalking05) Pours a medium brown, nose is lightly roasted malt, flavor has crisp dark chocolate bite and roasty malts. Body is too watery for me, but carbonation is just right. Finishes well despite the watery body. RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JUN 29, 2009
