Pours a dark brown with a tall, firm beige head. Aroma is dry cocoa, alcohol, musty with some faint dry spices like licorice or anise.
Taste is roasted chocolate malt, dusty black patent. Slightly sweet, some light espresso and licorice flavors. Has a nice hoppy twang that arrives late, along with some nondescript dark fruity element, almost vinous but not identifiably so. No alcohol in the flavors, and the aroma seems to lose its alcoholic edge after a few minutes.
Mouthfeel is dry, almost chalky, a little acidic and well-carbonated but with a clean finish. Don't think I'd call it "baltic," but a nice interpretation on the style, quite robust and complex.

On tap at Tørst.
Pours a red-tinged dark brown colour. Head is beige, densely bubbled and retains thin crown with gorgeous swathes of lacing. Pretty amazing.
Chocolatey nose, lots of sweet caramel on there as well. Burnt sugar, toffee, touch of vanilla. Mild, bit subtle, but what's there is nice.
Taste is bit more roasty and meaty (not literally). Chocolate still dominant but with some dry roasted espresso, pepper and a hint of mild dried chilli. Manages to incorporate dry notes into an overall gently sweet palate. Very enjoyable.
Good body, feels it might be thin but then develops a good presence, finishes dry.
Good American porter. Sweet, dry and spicy all held in good balance. Honestly can't wait until my next chance to try more from this brewery, I guess in many, many years' time.
