Pours a deep ebony color with a tan head that leaves little bits of lacing.

Smells of roasted malt notes.

Tastes of a good variety of roasted malt notes. Notes of cocoa, coffee, and brown sugar lead off. This leads into some roasted and earthy bitterness. Touches of dark fruit come in as well. Finishes with some bitter chocolate notes.

Mouthfeel is medium with a smooth amount of carbonation.

Overall, I like this. It is not particularly complex, but everything fits together well.

Love a good Baltic Porter. This one seems to hint at being as much, but doesn't give the firm punch I would come to expect. Nice beer though. Certainly touches on all of the characteristics I really hope for.

Appearance - Pours a dark cola brown with a finger of beige head.

Smell - roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee bean, cherries, and hint of citrus hops.

Taste - Initially hit with the roasted malts then goes into the dark chocolate, coffee bean, cherries, and citrus hops. Very pleasant roasted flavours in this one.

Mouthfeel - Medium to full bodied with light to moderate carbonation. The body also has a pleasant smoothness and finishes with pleasant roasted notes.

Overall - A Baltic porter with a excellent roasted notes. The dark chocolate, coffee bean and cherries were the stars of the show with the earthy hops being the supporting cast to this well executed porter.

Poured from 22oz bomber into a pint glass.

Appearance: rich, deep mahogany hue with just some ruby highlights when held up to the light and no apparent cloudiness. Head is a thin layer of frothy tan foam which seems to dissipate quickly.

Smell: some black roasty aroma with some creamier lager aroma. It reminds me more of a schwarzbier than a Baltic porter, but still not too bad.

Taste: roasty, with a bit of caramel character and more of the aforementioned smooth lager-ness. Not too bad, but again it's relatively subtle character makes it feel more like a schwarzbier than a Baltic porter.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a low-to-moderate carbonation and an OK creaminess. Not too bad.

Overall: drinkable, certainly, but without the big complexity I like in Baltic porters.
