12 oz bottle with some sort of best before gibberish of E8 1705s. Pours an impenetrable black color with a very dark brown foam. Retention is great, as is the lacing. Off to a great start as this is a fine looking Baltic Porter.
Nose is terrific, as powdered milk-chocolate mix and dark fruit (raisins and figs) come together for a big and bold smelling beer. Heavenly might be a more appropriate descriptor for this brew, pretty much perfect.
Baking cocoa maltiness is very nice and leads the way on the palate. Raisin juice fruitiness mixes with the chocolate for a surprisingly smooth experience. ABV is nowhere to be found and the beer is dangerously drinkable. The fruitiness and the thinner body makes this decidedly fall into the Baltic Porter category as opposed to a stout, but shares many of the same flavor components. Very delicious brew and goes well with roasted pecans. Make sure to drink this beer at least at 50 degrees, if not warmer, it really opens up nicely. I will be sure to try and score some more of this next time I am in Louisiana, I am sad I only bought two bottles.
