Dark brown body, off-white head, nothing special about the appearance.
The aroma is mild, consisting of cocoa primarily. Cocoa arrives in flavor form as well. It is joined by molasses, roasted coffee, smokey malt and bitter chocolate notes. The flavors are rich, complex and superbly balanced.
A most enjoyable beer that really needs to be served at the proper temperature. Too cold and the flavors and aromas become almost completely muted. If you just pulled this from the fridge, let this one warm for 15-30 minutes for optimal enjoyment.
This is not quite as heavy handed flavor wise as the other Baltic Porters I have experienced. Nor is it as thick and syrupy. Some may say it is too thin and highly carbonated, but I think this allows for a more enjoyable, more manageable drinking experience. I polished off the bottle in no time. Quite unlike the chore that many terrific tasting, though overly rich examples of the style tend to become.

This is an experimental beer at Falling Rock in Denver...so says their email newsletter. There were 3 on tap; this one and a bock and German Pilsner.
This one pours a glossy dark brown/black with a small, light brown head that didn't last all that long. To me it looks a bit thin. Some reddish tints on the circumference.
Slight coffee and sweet toffee aromas. A hint of dark plum and cocoa come in and out. Thin aromas as well. Roasted malts come and go.
A hint of molasses in the taste. Slight smoke and coffee. A dash of bitter hops adds to a baked chocolate, dryness. Alcohol is well hidden, if it is indeed 8.8%. An average beer, not sure if it would win over BalPort lovers.
Serving type: on-tap
