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.

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.
