served on-tap @ Three Floyds brewpub, Munster, IN, into a tulip glass

Pours a pretty dark chestnut color. By pretty dark I mean basically black. Soft, khaki foam makes for a 1.25 finger head. Decent retention. Not much to say about the appearance.

Way, way more chocolate in the nose than I would have figured. Baker's chocolate for days, along with toffee and cookie dough. There's some herby hop aromas too, but they struggle to match up to the chocolate overload.

Topless Wytch tastes much differently than it smells. For one, the beer is basically an Andes mint. It's got that kind of milk chocolate -- a whole bunch of it -- and the hops here taste fairly minty and green. What's missing is the dark fruit flavors that are the hallmark of the Baltic Porter style. This tastes more like an imperial porter than a Baltic one. Additionally, you can't taste a single trace of the beer's 9% ABV (which is a positive trait).

It's a touch thin in body, but nothing egregious. Nicely carbonated. Overall, this is a touch shy of "good." Perhaps if this weren't billed as a baltic porter it would score higher. It's a bit one-note (and that note is chocolate). Tasty but also underwhelming considering the source.
