Massachusetts

4.5/5  rDev +7.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: 11.2 oz short brown bottle with a black foiling over the cap. 1996 denoted as the vintage date.

Appearance: Pitch black with a thin yet sticky tan lace larger bubbles amass to the center.

Smell: Mild lactic acidic twang in the aroma, hints of smoky woody charcoal and unsweetened chocolate in the nose also as well as over ripened prunes.

Taste: Full in body with a semi slick malt mouth feel. Carbonation is light and only adds a minimal crispness, vague acidic flavour of lactic which stays mostly front to middle and fades. Rich and complex dark malt flavour dictate orders to the taste buds, first prune fruitiness followed by a twang of chocolate malt / espresso flavour and slowly switching over to a faded charcoal character. Alcohol is noticeable though has mellowed of the years. Touch of carob and dark chocolate in the mix too. Pinch of residual sweetness and flights of chocolate in the finish.

Notes: A most excellent brew, god like qualities. A hard to find beer and few like this are made in the Baltic Porter Style. A “treat your self” brew and worth every penny of the $3 spent on this one.

Can you say malted? This beer tasted like malted milk balls, and even had a touch of chocolate. Despite it being a robust porter, this was a very smooth and drinkable beer. Skoal to Finland for making this lovely stuff.

This sample came in a much larger bottle than past vintage years, and actually didn't display a vintage on the label.
