Pours jet black with a tan head. In the aroma, a light roasted malt with a small coffee presence. In the taste, a small chocolate presence, a small coffee presence and a sweet maltiness. A small bite and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry coffee, and notes of chocolate in the aftertaste. A nice porter with sweet notes with the chocolate.

Pours charcoal black with a tight cap of fine bubbles. Quite the creamy-looking head.

Some muted coffee and cocoa notes along with that seaside minerality that comes with a Baltic.

Deliciously rich flavors! Roasty, but mellowed, with more mocha notes that are easy to identify for the style. Saltiness pairs well with the chocolate. Hints of blanched peanuts and vanilla, too.

Creamy, like a nitro-draft, although this one's driven by CO2. Body is thicker than medium. Carbonation is tight and well-groomed.

Very nice stuff. A surprise delight between two delicious IPAs during my post-work beer session at Mad Mex. Highly recommended.

On tap at House of 1000 beers.
Appears pitch black, unable to see through. Had a nice light hot chocolate like head that stuck around. Smells of chocolate like and a little robustness. Taste of a smothe dark chocolate that is very easy going. The hops stick to your tounge in the follow through. I liked the mouthfeel the best, nice med carb and everything develops well on the tounge! Overall a very good porter just shy of a coffee flavor that would put in top tier!

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.

This brew poured out as a deep brownish black color with a thin light brown colored head on top. The smell of the beer was full of roasted aromas and some light sweet dark fruit notes. The taste was malty with a roasted finish and subtle bitterness. The mouthfeel was smooth and slick with a minimal carbonation to it. Overall it's a nice brew, really quite tasty, worth a try.
