500ml bottle, served in a willi becher glass. Pours a dark black body, slight cola hue when held up to the light but otherwise opaque black; one finger offwhite head, good retention and no lacing. Smell is rich cocoa powder, dark chocolate, light bourbon, touch of smoke, milk chocolate and chocolate chip cookie batter. Flavour is a rich combination of chocolate chip, cocoa, light espresso, touch of smoky bourbon as well as a touch of dark fruit and licorice. Complex, rich and lacks for no depth. Mouthfeel is medium fuller bodied, good carbonation, creamy and rich, smooth and light earthy finish.

Look: Pitch black, with thin tan head.
Smell: Fudge, brownie battery, cinnamon, and chocolate.
Taste: Fudge, brownie batter, and chocolate.
Mouthfeel: Thick and chewy.
Overall: A great Baltic porter from Jack's Abbey. My only complaint is there isn't enough barrel.

one pint 9oz bottle into a goblet. Bottled 3/7/17, so closing in on 4 months old.

Jet black body, small tan head which very quickly dissipates to a ring and faint covering, then just a faint ring.

no aroma at all, nothing good, nothing bad.

bourbon, some chocolate, and a slick vanilla are the primary tastes. slightly sweet. a bit to heavy on the bourbon for this particular palate.

Below medium on the mouth, slightly oily and bourbon on the finish.

Overall, a bit too much booze and a bit too little body on this one for me. lovers of a bourbon smack in the mouth would likely enjoy it more than me.

The appearance is a dark brown/black colored body with a finger’s worth of head that quickly dies and leaves a film of lacing sticking to the glass. The smell has chocolate malts, light coffee, dark fruits (plum, raisins and figs - more or less...??). The taste is sweet and bitter at different times through the previously mentioned flavors with added vanilla and bourbon, dry sweet aftertaste and finish. On the palate its about a medium and smooth, wow, how smooth, probably one of the smoothest Baltic Porters I’ve ever had. Alcohol is hidden well. Carbonation is right on the mark. Overall, wow, well balanced Baltic Porter that impressed me with some nice complexities that make it superior in its style.

Pours black as night with a thin quickly dissipating lightly tanned head and a slick oily look to it. Smells of bourbon and oak followed by tons of roasted sweet malt and bakers chocolate. Taste is a smooth blend extra toasted bread, roasted coffee and chocolate, and boozy barrel goodness. A slick coating of the mouth and a rich feel comes from this slightly alcoholic feeling concoction. Overall, this is an outstanding BA beer, and I am very much looking forward to the other variations. Thanks Tim! Cheers!
