Okay, I accidentally purchased this at Moondogs at Mellow Mushroom. Little did I realize until someone asked what i was drinking did I remember this was last years Best of the Baltic Porters. Not only that, I was sipping on the 2006 version. Man, what good stuff, worth every penny ($7.00). Nice deep dark hues with lots of coffee, chocolate, licorice notes. Definitely try to get your hands on some.

Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is jet black with mahogany highlights around the edges, and a frothy, low profile, dense, light tan head. Aromas of roasted highlights, toasted bread, bitter coffee, hints of vanilla, hints of booze, and some earthy and woody highlights. Smells aren't overpowering, but very inviting. Flavors are bitter coffee forward, with heavily roasted qualities. Wood characteristics, old world fruit rich sweetness, and hints of smoke. There is also a building warmth from the increased ABV. This is deep and layered. Robust body, but crisp enough to stay true to style. The aftertaste is heavy roast, subtle smoke, and bitterness. Smooth, slightly dry finish. This is a big beer, and it is damn tasty!
