22 oz bottle. Pours very dark brown, nearly black. Some chestnut highlights. Thin mocha head holds for a few minutes, then remains as a thin layer.

Roasty notes, milk chocolate and dark fruits in the nose. Slight butterscotch feel.

A bit sweet up front. Smooth, but still roasty. Some dark fruit, and a nice bread component. Although there are some nice fruity notes, there is still an overall clean lager feel.

Lighter body with softer carbonation. Alcohol is hidden well, as it is easy drinking but over 8%. Nice combination of flavors going on here.

2.93/5  rDev -13.1%
look: 1 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Uh oh....the Vesuvius of gushers and, after I cleaned up my kitchen the beer poured all head, eventually producing a only a few inches of chocolate brown liquid in the pint glass

Smell: Chalky chocolate with hints of dark fruit

Taste: Bread and chocolate with a Brett infection that added an interesting dimension to the beer; hints of fruit underneath

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body; somewhat thin and overcarbonated

Overall: Oddly, the Brett rescued this beer from a disastrous performance; still, it is not what it should be by any stretch

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

22oz. Just slightly darker than cola brown. Large rocky cream head.

Aroma, lager funk, lighter roast malt. Some chocolate plum, earth.

Taste, quite a bit of chocolate. Some cherry coke. Fades to peat, a roast malt and cocoa. Tinge of coffee.

Maybe a little high on the carb and slightly lighter than standard. Drinks pretty easy though even on a warmer day.
Kind of a warm weather Baltic with the fruit and lighter side body.
I'd probably get it again, but I bet it would be better on draft.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance - deep red, almost purplish burgundy hue. A very thin cover of light mocha bubbles, not staying together well but clinging to the edges for a while. Ends up bare-topped after five minutes or so.

Aroma - mild coffee, good roasty element along with the slight stale/sour of the porter style. A light milk chocolate aroma too, which grows with warmth.

Taste - lots of roasted malt and some nuttiness. The sweetness of the malt comes across bready at times, some cola at other times, malted milk balls come to mind. The swallow and finish is malty, roasty, nutty. That's a good Baltic Porter.

Mouthfeel - slightly heavy, medium carbonation, where it should be.

Drinkability - nice beer from NABC. Good across the board. Good one for fireside as winter yields to spring. Enjoying this one indoors while Kentucky-Kansas hoops rages on. Toast to a very watchable season and tournament.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

22 oz. bottle tried 19 Dec 2011. Served in the 0.4 L Stuttgarter Hofbrau snifter.

Medium sized brown head. Well carbonated. Clear dark brown. Relatively moderate aroma, slight roastiness, ethanol, earthiness. Starts roasty, lightly chocolatey. Some dark dried fruit. A says very chocolatey. Medium creamy body, medium ethanol. Moderate dark dried fruitiness throughout. Finish and aftertaste become a bit sweeter and chocolatey.

A liked this quite a bit more than I did, which is odd considering her dislike of chocolate.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

From 03/16/12 notes. Bottled shared by BigSexy410; thanks man. 22 oz. bottle into a tulip.

a - Pours a very dark brown color with one inch of ligh tan head and moderate carbonation.

s - Smells of roasted malts, light sweet chocolate, and light dark chocolate. Not bad but not much going on; pretty average.

t - Tastes of roasted malts, sweet chocolate, sweet vanilla, cream, bread, and dark chocolate. More chocolate and some nice vanilla, better than the nose.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Body is super smooth and creamy; doesn't feel like 8.5% at all. Very nice body and easy to drink.

o - Overall I thought this was a pretty good porter. The nose was a bit one dimensional but the taste was much better, and the mouthfeel was great. Worth trying, would have it again.

An odd sweet/sour character dominated this beer, and proved to be quite a distraction throughout. Nice deep black color. Mouthfeel was a little on the thin side for the style. Up front there was an inital sweetness, quickly replaced with a mildly-lactic sourness, calling to mind some porters that attempt to recreate the "three threads" style of blending old sour with new beer.
