Served on-tap in a 12 oz. hexagonal glass at Eli Cannon's in Middletown, Conn.
A: Very dark brown to near black in color with a very thin veil of espresso colored carbonation which quickly faded, leaving a glassy sheen over the brew.
S: Sweet and roasty with lots of bitter, charred malt aromas, herbal, earthy hops and a distinct bittersweet cocoa scent.
T: Rich, sweet and robust, this is a very well-roasted and strong Baltic Porter. The fresh coffee and chocolate flavors are immediate, but the secondary hints of tobacco, vanilla and hazelnut are an unexpected treat. Dark, roasted specialty malts lend a bit of spizy, herbal fruitiness to the palate in the form of raisin before washing back with a sweet, bitter finish and singe of alcohol.
M: Full-bodied but very drinkable without becoming cloyingly sweet. A very nice sipper.
O: This heavy-hitting, uber-flavorful Baltic Porter may clock in at 10% ABV, but it's dangerously drinkable on its own and could be even better with a chocolate or berry-accented dessert. I'm glad I got to try this limited-run, dark, strong specialty brew; seek it out!
Serving type: on-tap
