Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass
Appearance – Served a deep brown nearly black brew with a thick and creamy one finger tan colored head. The head has a nice level of retention, slowly fading over about 5 min to leave a moderate level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is big of dark and roasty smells. A sweet dark fruit aroma of cherry and plum are mixed with dark chocolate and a good presence of a roasted malt smell. Along with these are some notes of a light caramel nature as well as a good presence of a boozy smell that overall creates a very warming smell.
Taste – The flavor begins with a relatively healthy amount of dark fruit and a roasted malt tastes. Cherry, prune and raisin are all present upfront and are quickly met with other flavors of a dark chocolate nature soon after the initial tastes. As the flavor advances further the fruit grows slightly less intense with other flavors of some more roasted malt taking its place. Toward the end the darker flavors of chocolate and roasted malt are now most potent and are joined by a complementing smoke and alcohol taste which in the end leave a nice dark but still sweeter more burnt flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the creamier side with a carbonation level that is on the lower side of the scale. The thicker and creamier body are great for helping all the roasted, chocolate and smoky flavors of the brew to really stand out while the lighter carbonation, coupled with the creamy nature and the boozy taste at the end, make it a nice sipping beer.
Overall – A good sweeter Baltic porter that is nice to sit back with and sip over a nice cool evening. A rather enjoyable brew and one to try if you get the opportunity.

12oz bottle, Schlafly can glass, no best by date even though there is a 1-14 scale on the label.
It's the opaque dark brown of the big, dark beer. The darkest I've had in some time. Take that sentence out of context. Head was initially quite good, color dark brown, and it fades to a nice ring of small bubbles.
Dark boozy chocolate, latent baking cocoa, liqueur. The dark berry does show up as it warms.
Dark boozy chocolate that starts to run to the dark berry thing that big dark beers do, but snaps back to heady chocolate liqueur. Alcohol in the finish for sure. A wee bit of charcoal hovering. It's sweet through and through.
Thin, a little fizzy at first. This is what makes it different from an Imperial Stout.
It is a great Baltic Porter that fits the mold. Not too boozy, not too sweet.

4.16/5 rDev +1.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.25
Poured into a pint glass.
A- Pours a bitch black with a thin tan head that holds for a little bit then dissipates leaving a thin ring of lacing. Looks like a dark lager.
S- Roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and dark fruit form the front end of the nose. Honey and molasses are found in the back end. A little hop bitterness. Smells very good.
T- Chocolate, fudge, vanilla, roasted coffee and dark malt. Has a sweet finish.
M- Perfect for the style. Light carbonation heavy body. Finishes clean, with a silky mouthfeel. Nice and creamy.
O- By far one of the best Baltic Porters I have ever had. Mouthfeel and flavor are the highlights of this beer. Who new a lager could taste so good.
