look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A 12 oz bottle of 2012 vintage.. got a couple years on it


A Very dark body thin kaki head that dissipates quickly and leaves no lacing.

S Smells potent and delicious. Lots of dark fruit smells, raisins molasses and a smells pretty sweet and a little boozy also. Mouth is watering.

T Does not quite deliver the intensity of flavor that the nose promised but does mirror it pretty well. quite balanced also.

M Medium bodied and low carb that complements the beer ok.

O not sure how the age affected this... but it must have been for the better.. because there is NO WAY that the beer I just drank deserved a 3.69 (the current overall rating) probably coupled with the fact that leinenkugel makes macro beer.

Black in color and impenetrable to light. A fingernail of khaki colored foam sits on top of the vast majority of this beer. I smell plenty of dark malt and dry grains. The taste is comprised of dark smoked malt. The mouth is thick and yet viscous.

Pours cloudy dark brown with quickly fading razor thin head. Aroma is of rich roasted caramel malt with some mild dark fruity notes. Taste is sweet dark mild roasted caramel malt, coffee bean, some dark fruity notes, dried figs and mild bitterness. Palate is medium body, slightly viscous mouth feel, moderate carbonation. Finishes with mild dark roasted caramel malt, mild dark fruity notes and a mild roasted malt and coffee bean, mild dark fruit on the backend. Overall, this quite a good and tasty Baltic Porter. I like.

2012 vintage bottle. Pours athick cola brown, almost black. Thin tan head. Nose of deep
roasted grains, caramel, chocolate, dark molasses, and raisins. Flavors are strong. Dark
chocolate and caramel dance light sour cherries, on the front and aftertaste. Sweet
moderately cloying molasses like flavors overpower this brew. Not bad but not the best in
the series. Thick coating mouthfeel that coats the flavors with a light licorice like alcoholic
astringency. Odd but decent.
