4.13/5  rDev +6.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Beautiful ruby red in color with a light brown, fluffy head that recedes quickly leaving behind no retention or lace at all but great legs as this is one boozy beer.

S: This is going to sound strange, maybe because I'm more than halfway through the bomber after a previous beer, but it smells like how I picture the Baltic Sea to smell. Seriously. Sharp, pungent, spicy, earthy, salty, boozy, with heavily roasted malt, cold and clean air, and more alcohol. This is getting weird...

T: Booze really comes out when the beer is warm and complements the strong flavors of roasted malt, smoke, dark chocolate, dark and poached fruits, and a faint hop presence in the finish. It is actually slightly acidic as the style description states.

M: Great, strong flavors with a bit of a cloying malt/lactose presence that is found in most Porters. The body is nearly full preventing the lakey/watery feel (surprisingly not here even with my Baltic Sea comparisons).

O: I obviously need to visit, swim in, and take a sip of the Baltic Sea to affirm my comparisons. I'll get back to this review in the future. Until then, if you're reading this, buy this beer when you see it. It's a delicious beer by itself and a great representation of the style.

3.86/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.

Serving type: growler
