on tap at revolution house - served in pint
Pours an opaque mahogany color with charred hues. Crop of toasted brown head slowly fades into patchy lacing on the glass.
Roasted dark malts, chocolate and a dash of smoke in the nose. Soft sweetness, nutty and a bite of warmth.
Waves of maltiness up front with soft, smooth sweetness driven by cocoa and dark chocolate. Coffee beans, roasted dark malts and caramel. Finishes with a touch of alcohol and dark sweetness.
Fuller medium body, decent carbonation, chewy and smooth on the tongue. Well-crafted, albeit fairly standard porter. I'd drink this again, but there's definitely some better ones out there.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Surly Darkness chalice.
Appearance: Pours a dark brownish black with a moderate amount of bubbles. About one finger of deep tan head which quickly fades away. Lacing is fairly light.
Smell: A rich, sweet, and roasty dark malt forward aroma with hints of chocolate, coffee, and subtle dark fruit. Dark roasted barley malts with sweet hints of chocolate, coffee beans, toast, biscuit, caramel, toffee, grains, nuts, yeast, oats, and slight smoke. Sweet scent of molasses sugar. Dark fruit hints of cherry, raisin, fig, and prune. Subtle hints of earthy hops in the background. A pretty solid stout like aroma.
Taste: Like it smells, a sweet and roasty dark malt driven taste with notes of chocolate, coffee, and subtle fruit. Dark roasted barley malts with upfront notes of chocolate, coffee beans, sweet caramel, biscuit, toasted bread, toffee, yeast, oats, grains, nuts, and a little touch of smoke. Sweet taste of molasses and brown sugar. Dark fruit undertones with notes of cherry, fig, prune, and raisin. A pretty decent dark taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Creamy, slick, and somewhat syrupy. Pretty smooth.
Overall: A solid take on a Baltic Porter. Good sweet chocolate and coffee taste.
Serving type: bottle
