Pours jet black with tan head, smell is fairly weak but has notes of roast and chocolate. Taste is chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and sugar sweetness that is extremely well blended thanks to the extended lagering time. An excellent porter, no alcohol taste!

Growler pour. Dark black pour, quickly dissipating carbonation and a very sweet brown sugar and caramel aroma. Flavor is roasted malts, vanilla, chocolate and a little smoke and coffee on the finish. Good brew, the 8% ABV is not noticeable at all.

Dark and sweet. Some balancing roastiness. Fairly full bodied. Overall, good for a pre-Vikings game brunch.

Slight chocolate aroma, deep dark brown, almost black color. Good foamy head. Lots of chocolate flavor, maybe a subtle hint of a coffee lending it very slight mocha taste.

Sampled at GABF. Dark pour. I think the guys at the brewery told me this was awesome. Chocolate, tobacco and fruit in the aroma. Flavor is chocolatey, yeah i guess this is a baltic porter. I liked it. Ill have to visit this place sometime.

I dont know, if they call it a Baltic porter, and it looks like a BP, and tastes like a BP, I would classify it as a Baltic Porter. Black. Moderately roasted malt. Some dried fruit, leading to a combination of sweet grain and light fruit flavor, with the roast, that makes me think of central European lagers.
