3.75/5 rDev -3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
A : pours a very dark black that has a lovely cabernet hue when held to the light. a thick and loud popping tan head. Head is thick, but has large bubbles, quite odd looking. No lacing but the head stays for a while
S : sweet smelling, like coffee with creamer. a bit of chocolate towards the back. not really any hop aromas. Light on the aroma.
T : starts a bit watery, then has a very smooth coffee and caramel flavor. Nice transition to some round and mouth filling hop bitterness. Finishes with a slight bitter hop and a toffee like flavor. A bit warming, but nicely so.
M : heavily carbed in front and silky smooth in back. finishes very clean and easy. Super easy drinking for ABV.
A pretty good baltic porter that finishes very nicely from the lager yeast. I'd buy again, especially for a snowy night.
Serving type: bottle
