22 oz. bottle shared at Natifest- I missed who opened this, though. Pours a near-black color, opaque, with a small tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, molasses, syrup, and roasted malts. The flavor is the same. Full-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, smooth, roasty mouthfeel. Really nice, big, bold Baltic porter. drsordr (2798) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - AUG 7, 2013
