This was just released this year a few weeks ago and I was lucky enough to get my hands on it. I knew I couldn't go wrong!

A - Dark brown pour, but sits in the glass a nice obsidian black but is very clear. It pours great with tons of tan, fine head and strong lacing.

S - Initially the sweet dark chocolate character is powerful. There is the usual dark roasted malt that is with porters but the chocolate is first. There is also some coffee like tones that blend with the roastedness and a true malt character that makes this seem very tasty. No alcohol or hops.

T - The first sip there is a very smooth but full flavored taste with all of the flavors that you would expect: dark chocolate, black roast, sweet malt, and some coffee. Again the smooth rich character covers any alcohol or hops. The roasted bitterness is there but only attempting to balance the chocolate/malt sweetness. Complex and roasty but very smooth and flavorful.

M - High mouth-feel with moderate carbonation. A thick beer but with the lager yeast, higher carbonation, and only 9% it is still very drinkable.

Overall, a tremendous beer. Great flavor with tremendous smoothness and full flavor. Probably the most true to style beer I have ever had with 3 Floyds; usually you get super hoppy or a new spin but this is just a fantastic beer. Definitely a baltic porter with a distinct black malt flavor with less of the traditional burnt, roasted character of roasted malt stouts. I love the great chocolate flavor that comes through. I am not necessarily a lager lover but this one's drinkability and smooth character is really awesome. I strongly recommend this porter especially since it is less bitter, less harsh, and less alcoholic than many RIS's.

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a tulip glass. Pours very dark with tan head. I was supprised by the complexity yet smooth drinkability of this porter. The mouthfeel was very silky. This is just a darn good baltic porter and I will be buying this whenever I see it on the shelves.

Look - beautiful.... Brown w slight red. Dark dark dark. Head is very foamy and stuck around.
Smell - slight chocolate, has a hint of fruit like a plum, smells like a Baltic porter. Tingles the nose.
Taste - has slight coffee but not overpowering, very clean and doesn't hang around. Taste stays w you but not in a bad way at all and is very consistent.
Feel - smooooth w a great carbonation. Light and not heavy at all.
Overall - this is a fantastic beer and I'd get it every time I see it at the brew pub.
