3.56/5  rDev 0%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

On-tap at the brewpub, served in a shaker pint.

A: Black body with clear red highlights and a creamy finger of light brown head. Great retention and tons of lace. Lovely.

S: Malty: chocolate, coffee, and light caramel. Simple and enjoyable, but a little boring.

T: Follows the nose - sweet, lightly roasted malts throughout. Very light bitterness on the finish, but just enough to keep it from being cloying. Good enough.

M: A little light for the style, but nice and soft.

O: Not a bad Porter by any stretch, although I must say I'm surprised to see it listed here as being of the Baltic variety - it didn't strike me as being nearly big and bitter enough for that.

Cheers!

Off the tap this Baltic Porter was an opaque black color with a finger of tan head atop it. The retention was sub-par and but the lacing was pretty good. The aroma was strongly of chocolate malt, some sweet malt, roasted malt and a touch of coffee. The flavors were at first of the coffee but then lots of chocolate came through with some toffee as well giving it nuances like a Tootsie Roll candy. Towards the end it went into toasted malt and roasted malt with a semi-bitter finish. The alcohol was rather well hidden amidst it all; good for the style. The mouthfeel was smooth but a little watery, the carbonation was low/medium and the body was medium/full. The flavor profile was generally quite good and I liked the balance of sweet and bitter elements (much like their RIP Stout possesses).
