Draft at OMB. A light brown pour. Layer of cream head. A little different so far.
Aroma, light roast and chocolate.
Taste, toasted malt, a lot of nuttiness. Some caramel and chocolate. A little woodiness.
Struggles to get much above light bodied. Drinks very easy though. Even carbonation and no alcohol presence.
A little puzzled by this one. Just doesnt fit with the norms for the style. Worth a try on draft, at Olde Meck. I will say if a German was to make a Baltic Porter I bet it would be much like this.
Looking forward to the next one more however...

Tap at the brewery.
Pours a dark reddish brown with a thick fine yellowish head.
Smells of caramel and cocoa, some dark fruit.
Flavor is of caramel, cocoa and a bit of scotch.
Full body with a light crisp carbonation.
Very tasty, great flavor. Excellent, a must-try.

Appearance: Pours a clear auburn color (lighter than most of the style but within the BJCP guidelines) with a thick, somewhat creamy tan head that leaves plenty of lacing behind
Smell: Caramel, toasted brown bread, licorice and dark fruit (prune and raisin)
Taste: The prune and raisin flavors jut forward, with caramel. toast and licorice adding malty depth in the middle; after the swallow, there is a hint of hop balance to offset the sweet flavors as well as some licorice in the finish
Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation
Overall: Tasty, but very different from most Baltic Porters (most versions I have tasted are much darker in color, with more of a Porter character - the long gone Ølfabrikken Porter being the defining Baltic for my palate) and it sent me to the BJCP guidelines just to check; I would have pegged this as a Doppelbock but, to my surprise, this beer is firmly within the style guildelines
Thanks to my daughter and her boyfriend for picking up a couple of bottles at the release
