Tap at the brewery.

Pours a dark reddish brown with a thick fine yellowish head.

Smells of caramel and cocoa, some dark fruit.

Flavor is of caramel, cocoa and a bit of scotch.

Full body with a light crisp carbonation.

Very tasty, great flavor. Excellent, a must-try. (271 characters)

22oz brown bomber, sample from the brewery.

Spectacular looking lacing from three fingers of head, very dark garnet hued "black" porter. Sweet nose with roasted grain and dark fruit undertones. Very smooth and creamy, moderate level of carbonation. Roastiness is a little harsh but not too bitter, it was needed as the sweetness is pretty high here. Robust but tame, bold but drinkable. A treat for sure. (405 characters)

22oz bottle. Pours a very dark clear ruby in the glass, with a thin head of light mocha foam. This retains with some richness around the edges, leaving some heavy lacing back which slowly drips down the sides of the glass. The aroma smells of cocoa, caramel, roast and a healthy amount of dark fruitiness. Ripe fruit really starts to stand out as this warms up. The taste is very similar, with a bold dark fruit character that is complimented by notes of coffee, caramel and cocoa powder. A tingle of earthy hops also livens the profile up a bit and combines with the coffee flavor to finish this a touch bitter and roasty. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a fairly strong carbonation up front that then gets a little more smooth and creamy feeling along the back as you swallow. Alcohol is very nicely hid for an almost 9% beer. This was good, with a rich mix of flavors wrapped up in an extremely smooth and drinkable package. This is another winner from the OMB. (968 characters)

Draft at OMB. A light brown pour.  Layer of cream head.  A little different so far.

Aroma,  light roast and chocolate.  

Taste, toasted malt, a lot of nuttiness.  Some caramel and chocolate.  A little woodiness.

Struggles to get much above light bodied.  Drinks very easy though. Even carbonation and no alcohol presence.

A little puzzled by this one.  Just doesnt fit with the norms for the style. Worth a try on draft, at Olde Meck. I will say if a German was to make a Baltic Porter I bet it would be much like this.
Looking forward to the next one more however... (579 characters)
