12oz bottle (I think it says fresh by 1/14...so a little late if I am accurate) poured into a Bruery tulip.

A - Pours with an apparent thinnish body, super dark brown in color with a very short cap of foam that falls quickly leaving only a faint collar of tannish foam.

S - Super caramelly, lighter in the molasses end of the sugary spectrum, but definitely there. Lots of chocolate, lightly buttery/butterscotchy, a bit boozy.

T - Chocolatey - milky/creamy chocolate, toffee, molasses, a bit of ethanol, dry hoppy bitterness, lightly roasty, butterscotch.

M - Medium body with a light carbonation that shows little life. Plenty of toffee and caramelly flavors, neutrally roasty, milk chocolatey, a bit of tobacco, burnt sugar, brown sugar.

O - Overall, not bad but isn't really doing it for me. A bit too much sweet, sugary and not enough roastiness. Not that the beer is done poorly, but perhaps, just isn't my thing.

Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a nonic pint, the beer is a jet black, slick and oil-like coloring with a halo of light tan head. Nose of rich date, molasses, and bittersweet baker's chocolate. Flavors are rich and roasted, with bitter chocolate and black strap molasses forward, with hints of smoke and charred wood character. Rich and perfectly balanced on a smooth, robust body. The aftertaste is richly sweet, with hints of smoke throughout. Slick finish, with a roasted linger. This is a fantastic beer!

Appearance: Opaque, dark, dark brown color with just a thin cap of tan head that fades quickly.

Aroma: Just a lot of roasted goodness - roasted malt and bittersweet chocolate.

Taste: Mildly sweet, with the roasted notes building - chocolate, chalky, a little nutty. A small bite of bitterness towards the finish along with a fair amount of carbonation livens up the tongue, then finishes with lingering chalky, roasted notes.

The Rest: Medium bodied, highly drinkable, balanced and well-hidden alcohol make this a great brew.

P: A black abyss capped with a full inch of frothy cappuccino head. Thick sexy garter lacing around the edge like hugging a succulent thigh coaxing you closer to the sweet treat that awaits you.

S: Bitter chocolate, almond butter, smoky wood, charred grains and burnt molasses.

T/M: Charred malts, stale coffee, bitter sweet chocolate covered berries, smoke, hints of cardboard, black pepper, black strap molasses and almond butter. Medium feel and vivacious.

O: I have chosen wisely for my first Baltic porter. Sweet, smoky, semi bitter and prickly on the tongue. I will have to grab a six of this next time in our. Cheers!
