Poured from a 2014 bottle into the test glass.
A - Chalkboard black in color, a very thin ring of spheres look back at me, a gentle stream of fine carbonation surfaces in
steady streams
S - Bakers chocolate, barrel notes include vanilla, caramel, candied fig, black strap molasses. With some time spent the offering opens up further, adding saddle leather and hints of mole to the complex aromatics.
T - Dark fruit forward with raisin and fig leading the way, cocoa and touch of bourbon are next, very sweet experience. Enjoyable shade tobacco thread rises and quickly exits. A bit of spiciness includes a hint of cinnamon adds to the mix
M - Medium to thin in body, sweet slick coating of the palate, Very light carbonation is no match for the slickness, linger is measured by the day, sweet and a bit boozy, with alcohol adding the heat.
O - So glad to have kept a few of these for gentle aging, the base Baltic Porter is delightful, the time in a barrel adds complexity without taking over. I have enjoyed a sample of this on draft, but spending some time with this makes my experience much more complete.
