Notes: Big flavors do not have to be synonymous with one-and-done beers. We love dessert just as much as we love dark beer and we think that enjoying more than one of either should never be a problem. In this medium-bodied Baltic Porter we use a combination of specialty malts and caramel to capture rich flavors like chocolate, caramel and vanilla alongside a lager yeast that brings a clean finish. This Baltic Porter pairs well with dishes such as chocolate mole or caramel flan.

Poured bottle into shaker pint. deep dark ruby brown. Khaki head.

Nose is caramel, chocolate, vanilla. Slightly more balanced than the taste.

Taste follows w/ Roasted notes on the finish. Vanilla more muted.

The body is lighter than expected. Medium with a nice carb.

Delicious, underrated brew. Smoother if had straight from the bottle.

Had this beer for breakfast one Saturday. Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass. Dark brown body with nice beige head and great curtain lacing. Pleasant chocolate smell and taste. A bit of an earthy roasted malt background. I would have like this to be more pronounced. Overall pretty good.

Smells like what you expect but taste unexpectedly funky. Guess that's just the difference between a Baltic porter and a regular porter. If you like dark beer and fermentated flavor this is for you

An elite porter that makes Moody Tongue among Chicago's, and the nation's best breweries.

Hate to say it, but this has zero churro taste. Was expecting big cinnamon flavors, but all it is is a bland, thin bodied porter. Big time let down.

12oz undated bottle poured into a snifter at fridge temp 7% ABV. The beer pours dense dark brown with mocha brown head. The head recedes to a thin cap. The aroma is chocolate and caramel as promised. The taste is unfortunately sharp with a slightly sour cherry taste that I am all too familiar with. There is still so cocoa and vanilla fighting through, but I had this on draft a number of years ago and remember it being delicious. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, adequately carbonated and dry in the finish. Overall, ruined by some bugs. I took a chance on an undated bottle and forgot about infection potential from the added cocoa, caramel and vanilla beans. Bummer.

12 oz bottle

Pours very dark opaque brown, tan ring for a head.

Aroma of cocoa, caramel, cinnamon and toasted biscuit.

Flavor is of caramel, cocoa, cinnamon, toasted biscuit and graham cracker.

Medium body, tingly carbonation on the tongue.

Decent porter, good flavor, drinks smooth. Worth trying. Falls just short of awesome.

People know they are not supposed to rate infected beer right? Sigh. Anyways, had on tap, not infected, in fact it was lovely. The caramel and chocolate pair well with the underlying acidity of the baltic porter style. Creamy, smooth, and very drinkable, was a nice dessert beer to have with something sweet or savory.

What are you guys talking about? This beer is fine, don't hate.
Surely, I'm an IPA person and don't know too much about Porters, but I thought it had an enchanting aroma and the texture was silky too. I don't recall too much about taste, but I remember it as quite pleasant. Would drink it again, but not as my first choice.

Picked up a single 12 oz. bottle of this out of sheer morbid curiosity because, what the hell is a Moody Tongue? It sounds vaguely pornographic. No visible bottling date.

The pour is deep brown with plenty of Clairol crimson twinkling throughout. Tan head is extremely persistent, & active, I can actually see miniature bubbles popping. Smells like chocolate milk with cinnamon stick & touch of caramel. Interesting.

Caramelized Chocolate Churro Baltic Porter, at 41 characters including spaces, has to be one of the longest beer names around. At least in the top 2%. Taste? It’s bloody awful. Something is not right here – there’s a taste that immediately reminds me of Renaissance Festival Porta Potties in late August heat. Holy crap is that awful, especially considering the lovely aromatics.

Wow. Not like any other infection I’ve ever tasted, this clings to my mouth like raw sewage applied with Super Glue. One of the top 10 worst beers I’ve ever had. Words like “appalling” & “horrifying” & “please scrub my tongue with steel wool” are accurate but insufficient. Would give garbage a bad name. Wow. Just wow.

Something went wrong in the process. When prying off the cap, a sound like a bullet came out and the cap shot off. The beer's head was foamier then anything I had seen before and was long lasting. The taste was below average. This is not a cheap beer and for the price paid the quality control needs to be improved greatly. Do not buy a 4 pack of this if you can buy a single, there are clearly issues here in qc.

Tasted in a Spiegelau stout glass from a 12 fl oz bottle on January 12, 2018. Look is dark brown with a tan head and sticky lacing. Smell and taste is caramel, cocoa and vanilla. Feel is smooth and creamy. Great dessert beer.

Appearance - Pours thin black cola like body with light tan head that quickly dissipates not much lacing at all.

Aroma - Light vanilla and chocolate but with a slightly vinegar aroma.

Taste - little bit of chocolate but there is an odd wine like flavor not really getting much else.

Feel - Very thin slightly dry tart finish.

Overall - This is a very odd beer I am not sure where the wine/vinegar is coming from but it does not owrk well with this beer.
