Part of my NC haul, wish we could get these beers here in Oklahoma...
Pours mahogany with caramel colored head. Good lacing & above average head retention
S: Mucho dark fruit, carob, fusel alcohol, woody notes, licorice & smoke
T: Follows the nose, a touch of chocolate & charred grain up front. Black currant,, charred grain, a touch of ainise & carob as this warms, plus woody dryness, plums & a touch of leafy hops, & bit of medicinal/sasparilla sweetness. Finishes with a bit of charred grain, plums, some caramel, woody dryness
MF: Slick with silky carbonation, medium bodied with sticky notes
A top notch Baltic Porter, another winner from the Crooked Stave line, this one drinks so easy, yet highly complex

A - Pours very black for a porter and has a tan two finger head with great retention/lacing. One of the best looking porters I've seen in a while.
S - Has an aroma of bittersweet chocolate powder, milk lactose, brewed coffee, roasted malts and light vanilla. There's not a huge barrel presence on the nose, but the other aromas are very enticing.
T - Bittersweet milk chocolate at first, coffee and lactic acid begin the journey. Midway it's all roasted malts and at the end there is light barrel notes along with vanilla and brown sugar.
M - Light to medium bodied with medium fizzy carbonation. It's a very smooth bodied beer with a wet finish.
O - It's a well done beer. The base beer shines through all while letting the barrel treatment come forth, but not take over completely.
