750 mL growler poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Pours a deep brown, almost black. Nice khaki head and good wisps that regenerate with every swirl.
Smell - Quite smokey, but it has a sweet caramel aroma with it. Deep roasted malt blends with the smoke.
Taste - Pleasant amount of smoke. Caramel throughout snifter the darker malts come through in the back. Bitter and very Smokey in the finish. It gives it an interesting finish for a lager, but it's rough.
Mouthfeel - Overly bitter. Nice until the very end, but excessively bitter.
Overall - Missing the HF magic. Never been the biggest fan of smoked beers and while the smoke improves the Baltic Porter, it's rough in the end.
Edit: Had this out of the bottle and it was much better. Smoother finish.
Serving type: growler

Pours near black with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, a little coffee, a little smokiness, a little bit of dough, and floral hops. Flavor the same with a nice combo of dark and smoky malts. Smooth texture. A really well executed take on the style.
