Poured from the 16.9 oz. bottle into a Samuel Smith English tulip pint.
a: Black with ruby tint at the bottom when seen through light. Two inch tall tan head receded slowly to thick surface foam and patterned lacing.
s: None from the glass, but the bottle mouth smells of dark malt.
t: Smoky malt with some hop bitterness resulting in a little initial puckering effect at the edges of the tongue. Mild smoky aftertaste becomes stronger as it warms. High ABV quite well covered.
m: Very sexy-smooth. Light to medium. Surprisingly lightweight mouthfeel for such a high ABV.
o: A special, tasty and easy-drinking porter that feels good just to swirl in your mouth. Would like to see this in sixpacks like Hoponius Union but that probably won't happen. I do appreciate the unique approach of European size bottles, but at nearly $5 a take-home pint this is not likely to be on many drinkers' list of regulars. Nonetheless, this could definitely spoil me for any other Baltic Porter.
