On tap

Pours dark brown, creamy off white head. Smells of roasted malt, campfire ash, dark fruit. Tastes of charred roasted malt, caramel, fig, chocolate. Medium-Harvey body and mouthfeel, creamy finish

From tap at Fat Head's Saloon South Side Pittsburgh with Leah. Definite licorice right away. Went great with her brewben sandwich. It is sweet, so be careful if sweets are not your thing.

Enjoyed from the growler via Jungle Jim's in a snifter. This fine Baltic pours a deep dark blackish brown mahogany color with a firm head of white foam that dissipates to a thin ring and light lacing. Nose of toffee, molasses, chocolate, and subtle coffee. Flavors exceed the nose with coffee and chocolate on the front and sides, toffee and a touch of vanilla makes up the middle, with char and deeply roasted malts and dark fruits of blackberry and dark bing cherries that come through on the rear with light bittering hops and subtle roasted notes. Medium full mouth feel with a warming booze finish. Very nice.

Cheers
