Rated on 5-03-2014 (Can) This beer has a very small tan head that mostly diminishes, transparent reddish brown body, no visible carbonation, and no lacing. The aroma is roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, and alcohol. The flavor is moderately sweet, moderately bitter, roasted malt, burnt, chocolate, coffee, and boozy. The mouthfeel is boozy and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer is very good tasting and a sipping beer. The various flavors come together nicely and the 10%ABV is very drinkable. This beer is very worth trying and a beer I would drink again.

This canned brew from a restaurant poured a medium sized head of foamy dark brown colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark black brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was malty and brown malt. The mildly vinous crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start with a mellow finish with a lingering dark malt aftertaste. The creamy flavor contained notes of coffee, roasted malt, mildly vinous ,mild hops, brown malt and dark malt. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

Pours black like oil, same viscosity too, nice foamy brown head. Coffee, cocoa, and roasted malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Full bodied. Finishes with chocolatey espresso flavor.

One of the base beers in my recent trade with madnismo, shared one of these tonight with my Tuesday night friends. 2 finger tan head... pretty good retention and okay lacing atop a very dark brown beer that still shows nice ruby highlights at the stem. Nose is an enticing mix of cocoa, coffee and hints of oaky vanilla.. dark caramel sugary essence helps carry and marry the aromas. Bigger vanilla bloom on the palate that doesnt show in the nose... plenty of cocoa, coffee is lesser than the nose... dark roasty malts also dont show as much as expected... a sorta nutty malt moves in with the vanilla/caramel mash-up and produces an easy drinking brew. Body is surprisingly light given the 10%... good carbonation, but still thick and coating... very drinkable... deceiving. Thanks again Nathan for the great trade.

Rcvd in trade. Reviewed from notes. The appearance has a dark brown/almost black body with a three finger white foamy head rises and falls leaving some speckled foamy spider web lacing and is fairly clingy. The smell has some dark coffee up front with a slight chocolate in the background. The taste is sweet and bitter at different times through the coffee and chocolate. Sticky bitter aftertaste and finishes slightly dry. On the palate, it sits about a light to medium, comes across fairly sessionable despite where the ABV is. Carbonation seems just right to me and for the style. Overall, this is a pretty good Baltic Porter.

maekchu (3796) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAR 14, 2014
Can from Five Points Bottle Shop (Atl Hwy). Dark chocolate and light sugary coffee nose. Dark translucent brown with a thick rocky head. Initial is all chocolate, rich and sweet / deep dark plums, bitter fruit rind, soy sauce, and considerable alc. warmth / sweet finish with some slightly stinging hoppiness. Medium body. Very good balance of coffee and chocolate. Alc. is way up there. Could be a satisfying breakfast drink for cold winter mornings.

Skinny can from Harvest. Pours black, almost cola-like, into the pint glass, HUGE head that took awhile to dissipate before I could finish the pour, big sticky lacing on the glass. Aroma of burnt coffee beans, toffee, some vanilla, taste is ashy, burnt toast plus the coffee. Not the best Ive had, seems like they were trying to do too much here. Unbalanced flavors that didnt work well together.

Tall, skinny, 12oz can. Pours very dark brown. Creamy foam, tan head. Aroma of cocoa bean, roasted malts, hints of cold coffee. Mostly mocha. Very strong. Flavors that pass through: coffee, roast, burnt chocolate, caramel finish. Smooth texture, heavy body. ABV well hidden. Earthy complexity. Hop bitterness has a bit of a pine straw character. (3993)
