Good looking beer: flat black body, firm tan head with good retention.
Mild coffee and cacao aroma, with a sweet hint of booziness.
Dark roasted coffee and bitter cacao; dry woodiness with a slightly sour mustiness from the barrel.
Very smooth and even feel. Little heat.
This is an excellent BA coffee porter, with phenomenally subtle barrel characteristics.

An excellent Baltic porter from Sixpoint. Pours a thick dark brownish black with a solid tan head that dies down to a thin layer and lightly clinging foam. Smells of coffee, vanilla, oak, and dark chocolates. Taste is relatively the same with chocolate up front, coffee and vanilla on the back, and velvety oak to the side. Some nice boozy heat to this one with some nice cocoa on the aftertaste. Complexity improves with warmth. Although I am not an oak or bourbon barrel lover this is an exceptional beer. Pricey on the growler station, but still very nice and more than solid.

poured 16oz into a snifter.
A - Dark obsidian with brown highlights around the edge of the glass. Thick 2 finger tan head with good amounts of lacing. A thick collar stays for the session.
S - A pleasant chocolate porter, roasted malt scent with a hefty amount of bourbon and some vanilla. There are bitter notes of coffee and espresso along with some charred wood.
T - Bourbon up font followed by roasted malts, bitter notes of coffee and espresso. Vanilla, charred wood and some earthy flavors also make an appearance. The chocolate is more subdued and hidden, but there as it warms. There is a boozy aftertaste.
M - Silky smooth, medium body and good carbonation. Somewhat bitter and warm with booze.
O - It is good, but the booze is a bit strong and that seems to work against the roasty bitter notes. It is a nice evening beer.
