Notes: This beer is a real treat! A rich, chocolaty Baltic Porter with an addition of toasted coconut and toasted almonds. The aroma is layered with a mild malty sweetness and slight hints of coconut. The flavor, however, is something truly special—toasted malt and caramel flavors, coconut, chocolate and a touch of almond all shine in this complex brew. It has hints of sweetness, but remains drinkable with a clean and refined finish.

Picked up a four-pack of pint cans from the Mills River location 4-2-21 for $19.99. Canned on 3-4-21; consumed first two cans on 4-4-21.

Beer poured a cola brown with a nice off white head with the original pour.

Nose is pleasing, with the coconut and toasted malts and almonds leading to a sweet dessert like medley of flavors.

Taste is a toasted malt baseline with an immediate coconut sweetness that is balanced by enough hopping to prevent a cloying finish.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and fairly refreshing.

Overall a fun beer to try as you do not see the Baltic porter style often. Nice flavor but could use more hopping for a cleaner finish.
