A: Pours a dark cherry colour with a single finger of lightly brown coloured head. Satisfactory retention and minimal lacing.
S: Chocolate strongest on the nose with some faint dark fruit aromas in there (raisins, plums, cherries). Picking up an alcohol aroma as this warms. Faint but pleasing aromas.
T: Very similar to the smell with smooth and rich chocolate upfront followed by mellow dark fruit notes (plums, cherries, dates). There's also some nice caramel and molasses-like qualities to this. Lovely burnt and dry finish with a bit of smokiness. The dark candied fruit taste is not overbearing at all but subtle and refreshing, and is a welcome quality as I find a lot of breweries put too much of an emphasis into it. Overall perhaps not the most complex, but well executed with the ingredients used.
M: A low viscosity and faint carbonation put this in-line with the style, and better than most.
O: A very smooth and easy-to-drink baltic porter that I would have again. Certainly not the most complex, but nonetheless a solid and tasty baltic porter with a very good taste profile.

Growler pour into a nonic pint.
A- Black, dark red highlighting. Tan 1/4" head, kind of an espresso crema style. A bit lacy.
S- Coffee, cocoa, small hint of dark fruits and booze.
T- Roasted sweetness. Malty. Not as dry and roast as a stout but really nice for a strong porter.
M- Full body. Sweet body. But a balancing semi dry finish.
O- Great body and flavor. Heavy, but easy drinking.
