4.25/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

The appearance has a dark brown/almost black body with a three finger white foamy head rises and falls leaving some speckled foamy spider web lacing and is fairly clingy. The smell has some dark coffee up front with a slight chocolate in the background. The taste is sweet and bitter at different times through the coffee and chocolate. Sticky bitter aftertaste and finishes slightly dry. On the palate, it sits about a light to medium, comes across fairly sessionable despite where the ABV is. Carbonation seems just right to me and for the style. Overall, this is a pretty good Baltic Porter.

Had this on draft.

Brown/black liquid.

Khaki head; strong lace.

Coffee nose.

Medium thick mouthfeel.

Nice coffee notes up front; the wheat adds an odd but appealing finish. Nice!

I really enjoy this beer. Dark and smooth. Just enough of a coffee taste.
