19.2 ounce can into snifter, canned on 9/11/2019. Pour opaque dark brown/black color with a 1 finger fairly dense and rocky light khaki head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, vanilla, honey, molasses, graham cracker, toasted biscuit, roasted nuts, and dark/brown bread/crust; with lighter notes of licorice, raisin, prune, cherry, fig, date, smoke, leather, herbal, grass, pepper, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity or dark/roast/bready malts, cocoa, honey, caramel, graham cracker, lactose, and light fruity yeast/earthy hop notes; with big strength. Taste of huge milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, vanilla, honey, molasses, graham cracker, toasted biscuit, roasted nuts, and dark/brown bread/crust; with lighter notes of licorice, raisin, prune, cherry, fig, date, smoke, leather, herbal, grass, pepper, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness. Very mild herbal, grass, pepper, roasted bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, vanilla, honey, molasses, graham cracker, toasted biscuit, roasted nuts, dark/brown bread/crust, licorice, dark fruit, smoke, leather, herbal, grass, pepper, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malts, cocoa, honey, caramel, graham cracker, lactose, and light fruity yeast/earthy hop flavors; with a great roast/hop bitter/sweet balance; an no cloying/acrid/astringent flavors after the finish. Very clean lagering, not overly fruity/yeasty. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering hop/roast bitterness. Light-medium carbonation and fairly full body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky/velvety/rich, and lightly slick/syrupy/sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is great. Mild increasing warmth of 10%, with no booziness after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic flavored Baltic porter. All around fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malts, cocoa, honey, caramel, graham cracker, lactose, and light fruity yeast/earthy hop flavors; very smooth and dangerously easy to sip on for the big ABV, with the mildly bitter/drying finish. Awesomely soft/silky feel for the style. Perfectly balanced super rich malts and flavorings; with mild earthy hops and fruity yeast. Not overly sweet/heavy from lingering dryness. A highly enjoyable offering, and outstanding spot on style example. Not overwhelming on any aspect.
