Fade to Black Vol. 2

 
RATING
90

This Baltic porter’s aroma is as dark as its deep, black hue: Smooth charcoal smoke encom-passes rich chocolate and subtle spicy pepper scents. Like the aroma, charcoal smoke billows in the mouth, floating above creamy dark chocolate and caramel sweetness. Toasted malts arrive in the middle before a lagerlike snap offers a crisp, refreshing finish; lasting smoke notes please the palate long after the swallow. Although Fade to Black lacks the fruity malt notes of a Baltic porter, its sturdy malt backbone supports a fine showcase of smoky flavors.
