Pours the color of molasses with a healthy amount of mocha foam that settles to an appreciable veil that remains indefinitely. The aroma is very mild, a faint combination of molasses and cocoa. The flavor is much bolder than aroma, with a roasted malt character headlined by dark fruit, molasses, and alcohol. The alcohol flavor is not extreme considering the ABV, but it's certainly hard to miss. Some vanilla also manifests itself as the beer warms. The mouthfeel is slick and oily, typical of the baltic porters I've tried. A lush, roasty fog lingers in the back of the mouth after all else has subsided, lending a really nice finish. On the down side, the flavor profile lacks some cohesion, with heavy handed flavors smacking the palate variably in succession. I'm not a huge fan of Baltic porters, so perhaps I'm being a bit harsh here. With that said, this is better than other Baltic porters I've tried, so it appears to be a very solid offering for the style.

A - 4 - Dark brown-black beer with a nice tan head that sticks forever and leaves great lacing.
S - 4 - Cinnamon, dark roasted malts, toast, butter, caramel, molasses.
T - 4.25 - CInnamon sugar on toast, chocolate, caramel, vanilla
M - 4.25 - Mouthfeel is medium, alcohol is completely covered, leaves a sweet, cinnamon roasty aftertaste.
O - 4 - This is a great beer for the price. Almost taste like cinnamon toast crunch but with more dark malty, roasted notes. The cool thing is it doesn't really compare to any other porter or stout that I've had.
