Pour is black with brown edges and a light tan head. Nose is chalky malt, chocolate, faint barrel, caramel, toffee. Taste has more barrel, milk duds strong, some roast and bitterness in the finish. Medium to full body with gentle carb and a smooth feel.

64 oz brewery filled growler. Pours a ruddy amber/brown in the glass, topped with a rich mocha cap. This maintains some frothy ringing around the edges of the glass, leaving back a smattering of spotty lace and light brown oils which slowly drip down the sides after each sip. The aroma has a good bit of smoke going on with it, which mingles with notes of cocoa, vanilla, dark fruit and burnt sugars. The smoke and bourbon really work nicely together here. The taste is very similar to the nose, with a rich and complex mix of smoky roast, cocoa, vanilla, molasses, some dark fruitiness and a sweet yet charred bourbon character on the edges that lingers pretty deep into the finish. More and more sweetness emerges as this warms. The mouthfeel is full bodied and with some sharpness up front that quickly gives way to a firm chewiness behind it. The body itself is pretty smooth for 9-10% but the barrel aging does add a bit of a warm sting to this in spots. This is damn nice Barrel Aged Baltic Porter with a ton of complexity and power yet still remains extremely smooth despite the alcohol and bourbon flavor. This one really grew on me the more I drank it. Love it!
