Bought from Jasper's Homebrewing Supply Store in Nashua and poured into a standard glass.

A- Dark mahogany, almost black.

S- I get dark fruits right off the bat with cherries galore. Some dark chocolate, coffee, very faint tobacco smell as well. Very complex and truly appetizing.

T- Sweet coffee/dark chocolate to start with some bitterness to finish, roasted malts are in there as well. The dark fruits are not as prevalent in the taste as in the smell.

F- Porter smooth, a bit oily, but totally acceptable.

O- My first Baltic porter experience was a great one! Definitely a style I can get into and brew at some point.

Was a really outstanding porter and if not for the price, it would be right there with Founder porter. great coffee taste.

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.
