3.75/5  rDev 0%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

22oz bottle, with some useful phonetic spelling of the apparently Baltic language-named and of course mythical mermaid nomad from said region spelled out on the label.

This beer pours a deep, dark chocolate brown hue, with rather subtle cola basal edges, and two skinny fingers of bubbly, weakly foamy, and frothy beige head, which leaves a bit of organic invading alien spaceship lace in parts around the glass as things quickly abate.

It smells of powdery dry cocoa, somewhat sour milk, bready caramel malt, wet tobacco, understated black orchard fruit, soft citrus and piney hop notes, further ashy astringencies, brown sugar, and a hint of the alcohol that will surely come to be. The taste is more bittersweet chocolate off the top, one barely singed by a lactic coffee addendum, with a bit of black licorice, fig and date earthy fruitiness, multifaceted smokey essences - ash, in its various guises, really - muted orange cream citrus, more toasted bready pale and caramel malt, and a strangely nutty booziness - like ghosts of my Italian-American Christmas pasts.

The bubbles are low-key for the most part, but supportive when it seems to count, the body a dense, medium-full weight, and more smooth than it really has any right to be, so good, I guess. It finishes on the sweet side, chocolate, caramel, milky (sans any particular sourness) coffee, and a nondescript nuttiness carrying the day.

More of a straight ahead Yankee porter, than anything bearing the heritage of those northern European waters of lore. Where be the tartness, lads? I'll give ya the heightened ABV, as 8 points like this are not usually so easily well-hidden - as well as a generally pleasant drinkability, but the expected complexity, and at least lip service being paid to style here are sorely lacking. Pfft.

Poured into a pint glass. Split with CorgiDad and my wife.

A: Cola brown/black with a tan one finger head that lingered. Curtain-y lacing.

S: A plentiful supply of chocolate malts and barley.

T: Comes on more like a regular porter. Didn't pick up the familiar medicinal finish that trademarks a lot of BP's (and that was a plus). Chocolate, barley and a bit of coffee. Smooth, robust, molasses sweet.

M: Medium to heavy with medium carbonation.

O: A middle of the road porter; nothing that really stands out. Decent. Would pair well with cheddar or a chocolate chip cookie.

3.71/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a smallish dark tan head (~1/2 finger) atop a dark black brew. Retention is surprisingly good, and lacing is thin but pretty.

Dark fruit and roasted barley aroma. Slightly boozy with a hint of cream and coffee. Quite typical of porters and stouts. Nothing particularly stands out.

Surprisingly bitter up forward, with a sour tinge that lasts throughout. Dark fruit give it a hint of sweetness after the initial wave of bitterness. A huge wave of roasted barley crests midway, and you ride it the rest of the way through, waving quickly to coffee notes as you ride past.

Silky and lively, not particularly thick, but extremely drinkable. Sticky finish.

This is a quite tasty Baltic Porter, with the huge roasted grains you'd expect from a stout, and the smooth drinkability of a lager. An excellent marriage of the styles. My only complaint is that there is little that stands out; no real calling card.
