Thanks to cfh64 (Brad) for the extra! 12 oz. bottle served in a Deschutes snifter.

A: Pours a semi-translucent dark brown color with a thin tan head forming on the pour. Was expecting a little darker for a Baltic porter.

S: Uh oh. Highly fruity and tangy. Some light vinegar with a touch of roasted malts. Smells like infection to me.

T: Definitely infected. Dried cherry pits, tangy vinegar, and a little plastic. There is no discernible Baltic Porter flavors in this one.

M: Super thin with a high carbonation level.

O: The infection ravaged this beer. It seemed so inviting and I seem to be the first to report any infection here on BA. Hopefully this is an isolated incident for this newer brewery.

A - Pours jet black with a finger of quickly dissipating light tan head.
S - Milky sweetness upfront, a bit of carbonation sourness which progresses into light touches of bitter chocolate and coffee. Unfortunately the milk and sourness are the prevelant over the more desireable notes of a stout like chocolate and coffee.
T - Unimpressive. Light all around. Light malt, light chocolate, light coffee. More or less has straight beery beer taste with a little stout quality behind it. Drinks more like a weak porter or a heavy bock than a stout.
O - Its ok. Was much better fresh from the brewery on tap.
V - Medium low. Not really worth it unless you're a local or just really love this brewery.

Poured from can into DFH signature glass.

Decent head on this. Aroma was very subdued until it warmed up. Started out nutty and turned into caramel. Tastes dry and roasty and very smooth, light mouthfeel. A little alcohol stays with the aftertaste. I want to really like this beer but the dry aftertaste as it warms up reminds me of cheap liquor.

Generally underwhelming. Not bad, but there was little remarkable about it. If you're in the mood for a Baltic porter, this will do the trick, but it made me switch to a wheat beer. Maybe I just had it at the wrong time. There wasn't much depth to it, though on the front end it was pretty good.
