If there is a baltic porter on the market that sells well I'd like to see it. Anytime a brewer bottles one of these, it makes me think they are dedicated to the craft/style of beer, because they pretty much know this isn't going to be a big seller. Pours black, dark brown head 2/3". Aroma of roast and bitter dark fruits.

Taste is alcohol, bitter super dark, super ripe dark 'fruit' mixed with plenty of roasted malt and 3 day old diner coffee from the malt notes. Its a challenging drink despite having no off flavors. You gotta be down with alcohol heat, prunes, raisins and bitter ass roasted malt to be into this/the style. Mild smoke contingent along with licorice.

This one has a pillowy tan froth covering its dark brown body. Roasted malt, faint chocolate and dark fruit to the nose. Milk chocolate, cacao, roasted coffee and black cherry down the gullet and as smooth as it gets with a faint lingering alcohol heat and medium body.

Like a nice-fitting tux; sleek and classy.

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.
