Black as Witch Hazel's kettle, dense and opaque, with some glimmers of red shining around the edges...head is roasty brown, fluffy and creamy before drifting down to a tight ring.
Nose begins with bitter espresso notes, gloriously deep, light cocoa hints, spices, wondrously roasty, so far, so good!
Taste: minor hops, big malt, hardly bitter at all, but with that toasty coffee-toned flavor full on the palate. Chocolatey flavors peep up in the middle, and begin a thrilling litle courtship with the tastebuds. Full-bodied, earthy, spicy, but extra-smooth, easy drinkability. Wow, this is a top-notch porter, though not exactly a "Baltic", as listed here. Well, maybe it is, just a little bit...
From a 22 oz. bomber, which I wish would magically transform into a full keg, with a faucet I could drink from, like a hookah pipe...why not dream?
