Served from a 12oz slim can into a Newport Storm pint.

Appearance- Smokey/grey/blackish color with mocha head. Lot of lacing.

Smell- Tons of bitter coffee with some caramel and chocolate. Some nice vanilla oakieness. A little booze.

Taste- Chocolate and coffee! Bitter coffee and sweet chocolate. Extremely well balanced. Nice bitter hops at the end with a little booze.

Mouthfeel- Lighter in body with smooth carbonation. Phenomenal.

Overall- This is incredible! Might surpass Breakfast Stout in the realm of coffee beers.

Deep reddish brown body and two plus finger thick foamy head made this beer look nice in the pint glass. The can it came in was well designed as well. The smell that the beer emitted was a heavenly mix of chocolate, coffee, and hops. I didn't even need to bring the glass to my nose to smell this. The taste was out of this world, with a perfect balance between sweet chocolate, toffee, dark cherries, and figs; and bitter coffee, hops, and burnt toast flavors. There was hint of lactic sourness in the finish. Very creamy in the mouth at first with and astringent punch at the end. Freaking outstanding introduction to this brewery.

On tap at Kickbacks in Jax. Poured into a snifter. Beige head, moderate to low retention on a dark ruby, almost black body. Clear oily, sticky lacing. Aroma includes roasted malt, cocoa puffy chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Taste closely follows the aromas. Medium mouthfeel, NO alcohol noted on aroma or tasting. Insanely drinkable considering the abv. Really, really a tasty beer, borderline genius.

Pours very dark chestnut brown color with a massive 3 finger cascading foamy tan head that was full of bubbles and did not budge, fading extremely slowly, leaving very nice spotty foamy lacing and even some rings as it went down.

Smells of fresh ground coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa powder, caramel, charcoal, faint herbs and more coffee; a lot of coffee notes, which are really nice, and somehow a very complex and very simple aroma at the same time. To me, this could be the best smelling porter ever (or at least that I've encountered).

Tastes really rich, with fresh ground coffee, dark chocolate, molasses, roasted malt, cocoa powder, bourbon or red wine like it was barrel aged, caramel, toasted grains, charcoal, light vanilla, faint herbs and more coffee and chocolate, like coffee beans and a chocolate bar melted in the glass. It’s complex, very smooth and extremely tasty, and much better than I thought it would be. I love coffee and expected it to be really good, but this was outstanding and almost shockingly better than expected.

Mouthfeel is watery smooth like an iced coffee, with a light body that still has a little chewy feel to it, nice balance, very light carbonation, and a slight boozy bitter finish that has an overall slick feel. The 10% ABV is pretty well hidden, except for a mild burn after some swallows, so this could a dangerous one to drink.

Overall it was excellent and I hope this is a regular production beer from SixPoint. A very high recommendation, I want to get some more of this ASAP. Not many people get excited about a Baltic Porter in general, but this is one Baltic Porter that may get the masses raving about it.
