4.33/5 rDev +6.9%
On Tap - Pours a beautiful pitch black without any light able to peek through. A small white-tan head quickly dissipates. Smells of roasted almost burnt malts dominated the nose. First sip is deep roasted malts, slight dried dark fruits, and some coffee notes present. Mouthfeel is top notch as it is super creamy and a real joy. Slightly under carbonated but oh so slightly and certainly not a flaw. The 9% ABV is well hidden and most appreciated. Very tasty!

3.9/5 rDev -3.7%
A - Pours a near-black hue with a bit of dark umber around the edges; it is capped with a fairly long-lived, if minimal, tan-colored head, depositing streaks of lace.
S - The nose is basically a great deal of roast grain; suggestions of coffee, unsweet chocolate and burnt toast are there, but underdeveloped.
T - The taste is just as the nose promised: it tastes like a bunch of near-charred grain with just enough bitter balance to knock most all of the sweetness out, but not enough bitterness from hops to contribute any specific notes. Coffee grains are perhaps the strongest non-barley note. Alcohol is relatively unnoticed.
M - The feel is big, full and palate-staining.
O - Its not bad at all, don't get me wrong, but it is somewhat middle-of-the-road.

Was very pleasantly surprised to see a cask of this as Pizza Port Carlsbad
A: Pretty much black with some ruby tinges when held to light. A few bubbles of foam go away pretty quickly.
S: Big aromas of rotten, tropical fruit. I get lychee, banana, jackfruit and maybe even durian. A hint of wet earth in the background.
T: This is nothing like the smell. I get a lot of roast with a bit of a smoky aspect that reminds me of cigar smoke. A bit of toffee and dark fruit sweetness towards the finish. The mouthfeel was way thin. I was hoping for a bit more from this.

On-tap at 3 Floyds.
Black, served with a thin light brown head that lingers to create some nice lacing.
Smell is bitter roasted coffee, unsweetened chocolate, and a general roasty aroma.
Upfront taste is slightly sweet with chocolate and brown sugar notes. Finish is a bit more bitter with roasted coffee and malts along with a flavor that is hard to place--somewhat earthy and nutty? Lingering roasted bitterness.
Between medium and full bodied, very creamy. Light carbonation coming through at the finish.
A great porter with a nice roasty bitterness and a perfect body. Alcohol is deceivingly hidden.

3.8/5 rDev -6.2%
A - Mohagany beer with a khaki head that left fat lace on the sides.
S - Smoke, coffee, roasted malt, dark and unsweetened chocolate. Unlike most baltics, this one focuses more on the roast aspect and less on sweetness. Quite nice.
T - Roast, a little sour lactose sugar, some dark fruit, bitter notes, and cold coffee. Taste is good but not as good as the nose.
M - Full bodied with lively carbonation and a puckering finish.
O - Good beer. Like it more than a lot of baltic porters and would drink again.

Growler poured on 5/7 fromw the brewpub and consumed on 5/9.
Very nice porter, dark appearance with some cascade as it formed the head, little to no lacing. Nose was nice with a coffee and roasted malt scent. Taste followed nicely to make a very balanced, enjoyable porter, ABV was very well hidden. Drank much easier than a 9% abv beer should. I would drink this one again in a heartbeat.
