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.
Dark jet black
Mix of fruit and malt and leather, chocolate
Sweet, some coffee notes, chocolate, rich dark fruit esters. great beer, try 1
Not too bitter, carb was low.

overall great, but too expensive.

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.
