Tastes of sour fruits, dates, plums, pomegranate, licorice, very sour. Not sweet at all like one would expect from the style. Followed by toffee, caramel, and dark fruits. Finishes with almost a vinaigrette quality. Beautiful flavor profile. This is more like a sour wild ale than a Porter. Very fruity and very sour. Amazing beverage. Way underrated in my opinion.

12oz bottle, labeled 2012 vintage; poured into an unlabeled snifter 6/2/2014.

A- Dark cola coloured body. Minimal offwhite head with surprisingly minimal retention. The head literally lasts 2 seconds before disappearing entirely. No lacing to speak of. For all I know this could be a baltic porter or a flat brown ale.

S- Lots of molasses, brown sugar, tapioca, a small bit of chocolate and cocoa, but make no mistake, this smells very sweet.

F- Sweetness galore. Molasses, tapioca, milk chocolate. Not much coffee or cocoa or any similar profile to balance it out. Too sweet for me, not particularly interesting but not particularly offensive either.

M- Fuller bodied, low in carbonation but enough that it's not a still beer. Resinous with a finish full of molasses.

O- Too sweet for me. It's not horrible, but it's not anywhere close to what I've come to expect from classic baltic porters which have tended to have more roastiness and dark fruits. This is just sweet, cloying without even close to enough balance.

Appearance: If you try hard, you'll get 1 finger of creamy beige foam, which dissipates in moments to s slight ring around the glass. The beer is an opaque brown.
Smell: Sweet. It smells of malty caramel.
Taste: Sweet and cloying... In a bad way. It is as if the fermentation was stopped early. Complex malt bill, but no real depth of flavor beyond the cloying sweetness. Dark Chocolate, I guess...
Mouth-Feel: Thick and syrupy; the carbonation does little to complement it.
Overall: Way too sweet. Little overall complexity for the price. I will not purchase again. Sloppy job by the brewers.
