Attended a Tap Take Over at Crunchys in East Lansing. The style was true to form. Full bodied, roasted notes of chocolate, coffee, and scary smooth at 7.3%. This beer got better as it warmed towards room temp. The coconut note began to make its appearance to give this Baltic Porter a tremendous finish. A true Joy Ride!

On tap at Renos East. Finally somebody nailed down the almond joy flavor. Nice chocolate upfront that blends in to a coconut finish with a bit of chew. Also some malty nut flavors as well. Delicious.
