3.9/5  rDev -8.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a Duvel tulip.

A: Dark, dark brown with a finger's worth of khaki head. A thick pour.

S: Cocoa, chocolate, dark fruit, and coffee. Smells great.

T: Heavy on the chocolate with some of the dark fruit coming through as well. The high alcohol comes through at the end.

M: Decently thick with light carbonation. A nice lingering taste.

O: Glad to have tried it fresh. I look forward to try it aged, as I have a bottle from last year as well.

4.31/5  rDev +0.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A - A beautiful black brew, with dark brown highlights, but mostly opaque. Capped with a dark tan head that reduce to a thin line that maintains serious lacing.

S - Mostly roasted malts, with a line of wood and molasses. Underlying this is a strong element of alcohol. Subtle, given the flavor blast to come.

T - Full flavor of roasted malts, with subtle chocolate elements, toasted grains, and mild tobacco and leather notes. Dark bread in the middle, like molasses bread, and a subtle bitter note to close, and a hint of alcohol.

M - Silky smooth, with a full feel, and some mild coating, but the alcohol at the close effectively scrubs the heaviest elements away.

O - Tremendous effort, with a very big, bold brew that manages to deliver imperial stout flavors via the distinct style of the baltic porter.
