Poured out of a bomber into my tulip.
A – Deep brown to black on the pour with two big fingers of light mocha head that left cascading lacing down the glass.
S – Coffee, roasted malt, chocolate and dark fruit smell.
T – Big coffee and roasted malts right out of the gate. Nice light and sweet vanilla and chocolate tastes. Almost a creamy chocolate milk taste. Not overly sweet, almost perfect. Light dark fruit flavor near the end with a raisin taste. Warming alcohol at the end as well but not overpowering. Touch of bitterness.
M – Nice thick, creamy mouthfeel. Coats the palate. Still manages a nice tingly feel.
O – Damn fine brew here with great taste and balance. Sweet but not cloying. My favorite baltic to date. Must get more. Go get em.

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.
