Undated half liter bottle. Pours black with a finger of tan head. Smells of roasted malts and chocolate with some sweetness. Kind of oily feel, not much carbonation. Taste has some prickly bitterness, moving to malty sweetness, chocolate, and coffee. Quite tasty, but I think it could be a little bit stronger and dryer.

The beer pours jet black with a lovely tan head that sticks around for some time. The aroma is a nice combination of roasted malts, dark chocolate, sweet syrup and some very light coffee. The taste is bitter upfront thanks to the roasted malts but it finishes with a dark chocolatesque bittersweetness. The mouthfeel is very chewy, creamy and oily and the carbonation barely noticeable.

Black color, purple 'round the edges.

Nice khaki head; minimal lacing.

Black pepper ice cream nose; inviting.

Medium mouthfeel.

Taste follows the nose; black pepper and cream.

Easy to drink; far from revelatory.

look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

The colour is pitch black; the finger thick head is beige and compact. It sinks slowly to a thick lid leaving some lacing.

The smell is roasted, but not burned. Nuts, dark chocolate, ripe red berries, liquorice and molasses.

The taste is smooth and rich. Growing sweetness, molasses and pumpernickel. Passing light herbal bitterness. Roasted malts, hints of black coffee. Medium bitterness. Salt liquorice and smooth sweetness in the aftertaste, very low clean bitterness and some alcohol. Pumpernickel and salt in the finish.

The carbonation is medium; the very small fresh bubbles are long-lived. The liquid is smooth.

A clean Baltic porter, lacking some depth.

Poured from a 500 ML bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Savannah, GA. The appearance is a dark brown color with a giant tan colored head. The aroma was really great, it was full of chocolate and roasted malt. The taste matched the aroma with some coffee tossed in for good measure.
