500mL Can. My first Baltic Porter from a can! Dry, lightly spiced warm woodsy aroma. The carbonation on this beer is way too high, it’s really screwing with the body of the porter. The overcarbonation blows the spice and licorice (strong) all over the place. A hint of molasses and lots of dark malt round out the complexity. If they could tame the carbonation, this would be better, but it still wouldn’t deal with the fact that this is mostly a spice porter and that there’s not much Baltic about it.
This brew is a dark brown color with a medium thick light beige head that dissipates gradually to a film. Patchy lacing. Aroma of roast malt, chocolate and anise. Medium body with flavors of burnt malt, black licorice, dark fruit and dark chocolate. The finish is roasty with a malt and anise aftertaste. Decent overall.
