A - Pours dark brown with a light brown foam on top. Decent lacing, minimal carbonation. Settles nicely.

S - Scents of roasted malt and cocoa are present. also a funky earthy smell. Smells like a fresh garden.

T - The taste also has this earthy component. I have to think this is where the mushrooms are factored in. It is an acquired taste, but actually I have more of an issue with the drop off in the malt flavor and the watery flavor. A little acidic burn at the back end of the taste.

M - Too thin and watery for me. Kinda surprised isnce I like the baltic porter so much. No carbonation of note; just feels diluted.

O - It is a curiosity beer, but not one of Smutty's best, and really an average at best porter.

Serving type: on-tap

This beer poured out as a dark brown color with a tan colored head on top. The smell of the beer has some earthy roasted notes with just a touch of chocolate also. The taste of the beer was average to me, I just wasn't feeling this one too much. Very earthy is all I can really come up with for this one. The mouthfeel was decent but again nothing too special to me. Overall it wasn't bad but I wouldn't need to have it again I don't think.

Moderate head. Leaves some spots. The liquid is dark brown but the light does pass on the edge c

Baker's chocolate aroma. Absolutely no sweetness to the nose. A bit chalky.

Dry and watery are my first two impressions. The malt has elements of coffee and powdered cocoa. The aftertaste reminds me of burnt toast. Low carbonation which probably helps the thin body.

Keg at EBF.

A darker molasses brown colored beer, light creamy/fizzy head.

Nose toasty brown malts, light oak, light nutty herbal like, nice dark porter malts, hint roasted malts and hint if cocoa.

Taste more baltic porter like, light earthy bitterness, dark malts, cocoa, black patent, hint if spices, weird herbal earthy flavor that must be the mushrooms, actually the more I sip it the more I get a slight earthy juicy like taste that is like the water that comes out of a portabello mushroom, herbal bitterness, nutty, caramel, light spicy hops hint of oak. A hint of earthy herbal spicy hops round off as it finishes with more earthy flavors, a bit drier, and some malts.

Mouth is a bit lighter than I expected, but decent carb.

Overall not bad, an interesting beer to try but not something I would buy more than once or twice.
