Had on tap at Fat Heads. Review from notes.

A: Pours a dark brown with a small tan head on top with little retention or lacing.

S: A good bit of roasty malt upfront with a little bit of chocolate and coffee.

T: More roasty goodness, some chocolate, cocoa, and a bit of espresso. Slight bitterness on the finish.

M: Medium to full bodied with low to medium carbonation giving it a smooth mouthfeel.

O: A good baltic porter, was definitely digging this one.

Had on tap at Fat Heads...

A- Pours a darker brown color with red hues when held to the light. One finger tan head shows medium retention. Streaks of lace on the sides of the glass.

S- Light roast is the first thing in the front of the aroma. Darker fruits do make themselves present but only in a light tone. Chocolate malts in the ending of the nose make up for a lack huge aroma overall. Alcohol is well hidden in this nose as well.

T- Roasted malts in the front of the beer. Hints of the raisin and plum sink throughout the beer. Chocolate malts in the ending of the beer are light and not too noticable. Alcohol is only evident on the ending of the sip. Some piney hops are thrown in the beer at various points to balance everything out.

M- Medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is good for the style. Roasted malts are left on the palate with hints of light chocolate and dark fruits. Aftertaste is hints of alcohol, darker fruits, and roasted malts. Flavors were well put together for the style. No real off flavors were detected at all when drinking this. Medium alcohol drying on the palate.

D- This is a nice drinking beer. Nothing over the top but still a nice easy going beer. ABV is high but you can not taste it at all most of the time. A nice beer they need to keep in regular rotation at the brewpub.
