3.7/5  rDev -8.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Very dark brown, almost black, in color. Forms a minimal light tan colored head that quickly reduces to just a faint ring around the edge and barely a hint of surface coating. No lacing.

S: Aroma is of coffee and deeply roasted malts. Maybe a touch of chocolate.

T: Flavor is much of the same, but with a bit more complexity. Roasted malts, roasted coffee, some light chocolate, sweet dark fruits, and a little raisin. Moderate sweetness. Cocoa powder on the finish.

M: On the lighter side of heavy. Lower carbonation. Mild bitterness. Not necessarily syrupy, but starting to get there.

O: Not a bad beer. Can't say I'm a huge fan of the style, but even for the style, this one doesn't seem to bring a lot of complexity and just falls a little flat for my tastes.

(Served in a tulip glass)

A- This beer pours a jet black body with a thick creamy bubbly tan head and a gentle carbonation supporting it.

S- The charcoal aroma blend with black roasted malt and it has a very mellow quality.

T- The inky roasted black malt has some chalky coffee bean hints to it with a mellow roasted char note in the finish. There is a bitter note that lingers for a moment in the finish. There is a hint of rubber balloons flavor that comes through as the beer opens up but it doesn't overpower the other flavors.

M- This beer has a medium light mouthfeel with a gentle alcohol warmth when it warms.

O- This beer has nice dark char notes in a big but nice drinking porter with a much softer hop profile that remember.

Pours a dark amber with about a half inch of head. I'd really appreciate more head, but with a growler fill carbonation goes down hill in a hurry. The smell is nothing special. SOme roasted malt and that's about it. The taste is unique IMO. Malty with a lot of hop flavor without excessive bittering. It tastes a little too hoppy for a baltic porter but the mouthfeel is great. It reminds me of a hoppy choclate shake. I'm not doing justice to the flavor, but it really is a great drinker.

Although no bottle date; this was purchased last October 2012.

Pours a very dark brown with a scant head.

Balsamic sweetness and soy sauce prominent on the nose. Subtle roast, salted caramel, cocoa powder and raisin.

At cooler temps, the hops enrap the tongue in a numbing sensation-love it. Wonderful dark cocoa bar, bitter vanilla extract and roasted marshmallow. Warmer temp provides subtley to the aforementioned in silky fashion and more smokey quality emerges. Warming alcohol underlying all.

Prickly carbonation enlivens the hop quality. Chocolate, caramel and toasty marshmallow linger.

Darn good Baltic Porter with a FFF signature to it. I've had a few but I wanted to put a year on this one-glad I did.
