4.33/5 rDev +10.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A: Dark brown with an off-white head. I'm not getting much lacing.
S: Sweet, slightly fruity malt with a hint of chocolate.
T: Rich maltiness that's like the smell with some dark fruit. There's a touch of char at the back end, along with some hops, that balance the chocolaty sweetness. The char and and earthy hops linger nicely, and the hops really come through on the finish. This is a fully flavored, but still quafable, porter, and the flavors are well integrated. A well designed beer.
M: Medium for the style.
O: It's hot and insanely muggy right now, but I'm having no problem drinking this porter.
Serving type: growler

On-tap at Mugs Alehouse, Brooklyn, NY
A: The beer is very dark brown when viewed from afar—reddish hues are visible near the edge of the glass when held up to the light. It poured with a quarter finger high tan head that died down and left a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of roasted malts are present in the nose along with notes of smoke and iodine.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, but there are also notes of chocolate malts and hints of cola.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is quite flavorful for being a lighter-bodied Baltic Porter.

Excited to try some limited brews here. Seems like more and more breweries popping up these days.
This one poured out like a cup of coffee. It even had a beige head on it too. It did not smell like coffee though. Unless you put booze in your coffee. Hah! Had a real robust alcohol and medicine smell. The taste was very full-bodied and rich. Kind of syrupy actually. A little bit too much sugar for me.
I was hoping there to be much more hops in the end too. But this was just a little bit too meaty for me. All in all a decent beer I guess but nothing I would get too excited about.
