Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours a very dark mahogany brown with little light transmission in the glass, and a fine, one finger light brown head that diesipates to spare patches. This was a fine looking head that I thought would be long lasting, but it disappeared rather quickly. Aroma of dark toasted malt with dark biscuit, milk chocolate, molasses and light woody oak. Flavor is dark toasted and dry caramel malt, dark chocolate, coffee and mild oak. A little more woody astringency revealed in the finish. Medium bodied with light creaminess. This porter has an interesting sweet/dry character, with a mild sweetness to the malt at first, but finishing woodier and drier. More caramel than the typical dark fruit in a Baltic porter, but has a nice balanced flavor with good coffee an chocolate notes. Oak character more woody than oaky. I've been impressed with this breweries big ales and I like this one too. The oak is not as big as in domestic barrel aged beers, but adds a pleasant earthiness to the porter. Glad Fortuna is available in the states; I'm looking forward to their recently available barleywine as well.

L: Had this beer on-tap at Capital Ale House - Innsbrook, poured into a snifter glass. Had a dark brown / black color and a thick, opaque consistency. There was a quarter inch of foamy, tan-colored, fairly long-lasting head. Above average lacing.

S: A nice aroma of coffee, roasted malt, chocolate, wood, and caramel.

T: Tasted of good amount of roasted malt (present throughout; a big factor), a tinge of caramel (kind of fleeting), a good shot of coffee (not overdone, though), some oaky notes, light hops (mostly in the finish), and some dark chocolate notes. A subtle and balanced flavor. Pretty tasty.

F: A fair amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: In general, a solidly made beer. Worth a try.
