look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

Nice dark, Mohogany color poured from a bottle into a standard pint glass with a 2 finger creamy head.
Nice flavor, nothing to write home about but still not bad.
Medium to light body and mouthfeel.
Not a bad beer, but it wouldn't be a go to for myself.

3.79/5  rDev +2.7%
look: 2.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a clear, dark brown color. 1/5 inch head of an off-tan color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of alcohol, sweet malt, slight roasted malt, hint of dark citrus, hint of yeast, and hint of pale malt. Fits the style of a Baltic Porter. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. There is also a hint of tartness. Tastes of oak, sweet malt, alcohol, slight roasted malt, hint of hop, and slight dark citrus. Overall, weak appearance, good aroma, and good body.

Serving type: on-tap

4/5  rDev +8.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: fairly dark, black; turns ruby when held to the light; almost no head
Aroma: smells quite nice; chocolate; malt; dark fruit/wine like; coffee; burnt brown sugar; hint of toffee; a bit roasty as well; I swear I get some soy sauce in there…
Taste: it’s very rich, more so than I was expecting; sweet all the way through; caramel, toffee, and maltiness up front; moves into some great port/wine/dark dried fruit flavors; finishes with bread and a good hit of chocolate; the roasty flavor comes in right there at the end and a touch of sweetness and roasted nuts; the aftertaste is a pleasant mix of wine and roasty, maybe a little woody
Mouthfeel: it’s got a nice creaminess to it; very smooth, kind of velvety; fairly light carbonation, but the bubbles are a bit prickly right at the start
Overall Impression: this is a nice beer, I am very pleasantly surprised; very drinkable and really quite tasty; there is quite a bit packed in here, but it is balanced very nicely-it isn’t overwhelming, but isn’t boring; a nice drink that I will probably buy again, especially in the fall/winter as an alternative to the spice beers

Poured into a snifter. Pours a dark brown color, which does allow some light through. I small amount of cream colored head does arise, but dissapates quickly. It smells of molasses, raisins, and other dark fruits (figs/dates). Tastes like you are drinking a Fig Newton, with well hidden booze. It is enjoyable & quite smooth: drinks more like a Belgian strong dark ale. Tastes somewhat similar to Chimay Blue, from my recollection.

I poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a tumbler, dark pour with a slight tan head, decent lacing. Lots of coffee on the nose, very malty. Nice mix of coffee, port and dark fruits, lingering finish. The carbonation is medium, no detectable booze, dangerously drinkable. I really enjoyed this, good flavor and great drinkability.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- Pours a black body with reddish hues. Nice 3-finger coffee colored head sits on top. The head doesn't last too long, but leaaves a decent cap with some all right lacing.

S- A little muted, but... Bitter chocolate, burnt coffee, oak, vanilla, with some milk chocolate following it up. Nothing really stands out, but they're there.

T- Just like the aroma, the taste is muted and short. The flavors are nice, though. Slight milk chocolate, burnt coffee, vanilla, and oak.

MF- Nice full body, especially when this warms up. Not too much carbonation, but just right.

3.6/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours an effervescent ebony with 1 thumb of mocha colored head. Some head retention & near zero lacing

S: Dark fruit & faint carob & chocolate, some leafy hops as well

T: Dark fruit, carob, black currant, leafy hops & dryness, plus a touch of iron up front. More dark fruit, especially figs & prune; leafy & earthy hops as this warms, along with some Baker's chocolate. Finishes with slight medicinal notes, dark fruit, leafy hops & more carob

MF: Medium bodied, low carbonation, somewhat sticky

A decent Baltic Porter, worth a shot, but don't set your sights too high
