A very dark brown, used motor oil look and a light ran head.

A rich smoky, roasted malt, with chocolate, caramel, coffee, yeast floral, and some earthiness.

Th e mouthfeel is creamy slightly carbonated and the finish lingers.

OK this is a very nice Baltic Porter, significant character like the smoky earthy notes presented in the beer. I really can appreciate the craftsmanship that went into this beer.

Poured from 22 oz bomber into snifter glass.

A: Pours a very dark brown almost black with generous 2-3 finger tan head with decent retention and some nice lacing.

S: Roasted malts, vanilla, campfire smoke.

T: Espresso, roasted malts, vanilla with a hint of bitter chocolate.

M: Medium body and reasonable carbonation. Finish is fairly dry but consistent with style.

O: Enjoyable porter. The flavors meld nicely, and this is a very easy drinking brew. Might have to pick up another bottle on my next Vegas trip.

Thanks to Rado for sharing this one at jmgrub's tasting.

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, fruit, and slight char aromas. Taste is much the same with fruit and char flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with an interesting fruity quality in the aroma and flavor.
