11.2 oz bottle served in a Belgian snifter.
Pours with a thick, dark brown body that produces a large, light brown head. Opaque. Decent lacing.
Aroma: A bit odd. Fruity with hints of sweetness. Partially hidden alcohol.
Flavor: Also a bit odd. Overly sweet up front even though it's mildly bitter by the aftertaste. Partially hidden alcohol. Dominated by raisins and other dark fruit notes, with dark roasted grains and burnt toast appearing in the finish.

O: while I didn't like this much it is worth trying.

Poured into a tulip glass. Pours a dark brown, no light shines through the glass, even the edges of the glass are dark. Big light brown to tan head that remains high in the glass, about and inch and a half. The nose is sweet, bitter chocolate, some tart to sour smells are apparent. The first sip is thick and syrupy, viscous mouth feel, sweet malt, chocolate, and bitter. There is definitely a little sour bite to this beer. Tiny bubbles cover the top of my glass, slowly they break apart leaving a patchwork lacing on the glass. As this beer warms you begin to find the dark cherries, perhaps the sourness of the beer compliments this. More sweetness and chocolate notes, very malty. This beer doesn't seem to fit the Baltic Porter style at least as defined in the U.S. . It lacks any noticeable lager characteristics, and feels more like a stout than a Porter.

330ml bottle poured into tulip 22/1/14

A almost black right out of the bottle with just a thumbnail cola edge, even a gentle pour pumps out a massive rocky brown foam, ends up as a thick soapy film after a couple of sips leaving just a few random patches on the way down

S coffee, dark licorice, a little char, sour bruised plum, bakers chocolate, faint booze and some hard toffee

T some raisins and coffees a little stronger and some faint citric hops trying to shine through all the darkness, sweet and fruity, still has some charred wood but it come in late, a little different from the nose but equally good

M not overly thick for the color and its just on the foamy side of cream, very faint heat, some fruit and a little char linger

O I wasn't sure what to expect from a brewery I've never heard of but this on hits the spots, well concealed booze and lots of dark malt

I could drink another for sure, easy to down of 9.5%, bought this one on a whim and I have no regrets
