2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500. Thanks, TheWolf! Pours dark opaque black with a thick, sudsy, moussy tan head. No lace to speak of. Big sour milk chocolate nose. Dark fruit there, too, maybe plums. Big bubbly attack, with plenty of flavor and a nice, slightly oily body. Chocolate and dark fruit all over the place again on the mid-palate. Clingy, slightly sour and tannic finish. Aluminum and brown apples there? Maybe...a beer shipped in July could suffer that fate. Tasty but not a mind-blower.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a bottle, thanks oh6gdx. The body was black with an orangeish khaki head. The aroma was chocolate with some amaretto liquer. There were also some pears. The taste was apricots with some light milk chocolate notes. Some caramel notes kick in later. Low carbonation. The body was fairly thin and slick, especially for the abv. A nice Baltic Porter.
