Draught into 9 ounce snifter.

Two finger quick reducing tan head.

Jet black in color

Smells of vanilla, coffee, charcoal, and hop

Tastes of vanilla, coffee, roasted malt, and a smooth, warming, boozy finish!

Mouthfeel: Warming and thick

Overall, this is a solid Baltic Porter. I am looking forward to exploring this brewery's portfolio further.

look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.5

Look: Huge thick equal brown/mocha head, slow retention. Some spectacular shit. Color of the beer is dark brown/black. Leaves lots of lacing. One of the best looking beers.

Smell: Fresh, surprisingly. Nice balance of roasted, coffee malt, hop and spices. Smooth clove, star anise notes, hints of something stronger; also some medicinal/peppermint notes. When it warms up, the roasted malt start to dominate.

Taste: Some sweetness at start, goes to big roasted/mocha/dark chocolate middle malt, still smooth tho. Ends with bitterness from roasted malt and some hop hints. Quite refreshing. No hint of the alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Mid-full body, maybe a bit less then expected. Carbonation lively, but still leaves a nice creamy feel. No warming from the alcohol.

Overall: This one got me a bit off guard - wasn't expecting it to be this good. A fine specimen. The extra spices add the freshness but stay in balance with the whole idea - a very good execution. And it looks stunning.

Holy Crap! I just went and drank 2 goblets of this durning my lunch break. This is everything black; bitter chocolate, licorice, and coffee. It attacks your mouth with bitter hops and and an aftertaste of whisky. This was a very delicious beer. It was a wonderful wakeup in the middle of a workday... like a drop-kick to my uvula.

probably the best Baltic porter ive come across. this was purchased at holiday time and finally decanted. it pours a chalky brown color, like chocolate syrup in terms of color, with a few inches of light airy mocha colored foam. the nose is muted a bit, with some dusty old English dark malts and a dab of honey. faint cocoa and bitter barley as well. the taste is much more expressive, with the complex depth of this beer being immediately apparent. really dark roasted barley malt is just short of scalded, which gives this beer a huge base. layers of milk chocolate, peat, and even raisins brush across the palate one after the next, before a moderately bitter smoky vanilla rounds out the finish. what a joy to drink this beer, and I could see it being sensational around the holidays. alcohol is invisible, beer has a velvet smoothness to it, very soft on the mouth despite its big body. a very impressive offering from mikkeller, are the other labels of this different versions or just different packaging? either way, this one is a standout for me in the Baltic porter category.
