On tap at the Local in Madison, WI. Served in cheap stemmed red wine glass - the sort you would get your basket of Chianti served in if you were dining in a little Italy. Not really appropriate for beer but I was glad that I didn't get a whole pint of this as it is a rather intense brew and I wasn't really prepared for it.

Appearance: Dark brown, near black and nontransparent with a swirly tan head that resembles the Doppler of a hurricane.

Aroma: Sugary booze, powerful roasted malt and twangy rye notes, hints of oily cheese, Irish coffee, and mocha syrup.

Taste: Sweet and boozy. Lots of chocolate in a syrupy or Godiva liquor sort of way. Coffee comes on luscious and mouth coating too with some pretty fresh bean flavor to boot. Rye offer some twang. There is a general fruitiness that I can't yet place but might after more servings.

Mouthfeel: Robust and full bodied. Warming in a major way. Gives off the quality of being thick like a chocolate malt. Mildly biting coffee/oat bitterness offers some balance but not much. This puppy is rich and sweet with lingering sugar notes and lasting alcohol avidity.

Drinkability: This is a treat but I can't see myself having more than one in a sitting.

Style: This doesn't fit any category. I would have called it an American Porter since that American precursor seems to translate as experimental half of the time. Still, Baltic Porter fits alright since this brew is certainly big enough to be one.

A- came to the table a dead black at the bar today, tannish brown head and clear for a dark beer.

S- roasted flavors were pretty strong, malty and a light scent of rye, balanced with hops.

T- first off a very strong malty dark flavor with a chocolate scents and the rye undertone. The rye is surprizingly light for how much they say they put into it, however it is clearly there and blends in spectacularly with the rest of the porter style. very smooth and delicious flavor

M- pretty thick as an imperial porter with rye in it, lingers on the tongue pretty well, and leaves a nice aftertaste. medium carbonation

D- very smooth and i think a great heavy beer.
