500 ml bottle, back label says best before 09.13.2014. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch and a half tan head that stayed around a while. There's a decent amount of lacing. The brew smells like roasted malt, dark fruit, bittersweet chocolate, anise, and some brown sugar. Taste is similar to the aroma, it tastes like roasted/charred malt, dark fruit (plums, prunes, raisins), molasses, dark chocolate, brown sugar, anise, and an earthy/mineral flavor. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's creamy and smooth with a good amount of carbonation. I liked this, and at just $1.79 a bottle it's definitely worth picking up!

Bottle purchased at Beers of the World in Henrietta, NY.
Pours a very dark black, with a foamy, creamy one inch head, and lots of lacing down the glass.
Smells like roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruits, and lager yeast.
The taste is fairly similar. Pretty sweet and caramelly, with lots of dark fruit flavors. It does stop short of being cloying, thankfully. Some roasted malt and chocolate, lots of dark fruit flavor, almost tastes Belgian. Pretty sweet, not really bitter at all.
Medium bodied, incredibly creamy mouthfeel. Very drinkable. Low carbonation.
A pretty bang on Baltic Porter. Cut down a little bit of the sweetness and dial up a little bit more of roasty malt, and it would be near perfect.

This beer is pretty much black. Lots of head formed. Laced as it fell.
Chocolatey malts, metallic notes, herbal notes, caramel malt, roasty dose, a bitbof lactose, and slight minerality. Solid.
Big chocolate malt opening with follow-ups of booze, metallic notes, malt bitterness, mineral tongue-pinch, and anise. Caramelized sugars and mint tea notes. Has an impy stout magnitude. A knockout punch of a Baltic Porter.
A little hot, but brewed to big strength. Swishy body with a sizzling carbonation. Good weight.
