One year old can purchased from Beers of the World in Rochester, NY.

Pours a dark, opaque brown color. A lighter brown mocha-colored head forms, about one inch, with nice strings of lacing down the glass.

Aromas include dark roasted malt, strong nutty coffee, chocolate, all sorts of great rich things on the nose.

The flavor is similar. The coffee flavor is quite prominent, and pretty intense- it's of the bitter and nutty variety, with a bit of sweetness near the end that's reminiscent of hazelnut. The roasted malt also provides a nice bitterness, with some dark chocolate as well- cocoa powder like, and mild. No real hop flavor.

Medium bodied, very creamy, low carbonation.

A great baltic porter, and a truly great use of coffee here, it stands tall.

Pours dark brown with ruby highlights. Has a one finger tan head, with good retention and spotty lacing. The aroma has dark roasted malt, cocoa, and coffee.

The first thing I tasted is burnt coffee, which is mot pleasant. There is also cocoa and dark roasted malt. Not very complex or special.

Medium bodied with average carbonation, and a burnt, bitter coffee aftertaste. Nothing special here. Glad I only picked up a single can.

A-Pours a deep brown color with a beige/toffee colored head that leaves a fair amount of lacing on the sides. Head is medium-thin and retains well.

S-Huge roasted coffee notes followed by sweet molasses and a hint of cocoa.

T-Bitter, roasty coffee hits the front of the palate as it fades into a burnt bready taste with a boozy bite.

MF-Medium to full bodied with slight carb. Not as rich as I'd like it to be.

O-A damn good porter. Probably my favorite so far, but I have not had a porter in a few months so I'll have to try some more. Roasted coffee notes taste exceptional and the bitterness is rounded out well with the faint molasses taste.
