A - dark brown with a creamy tan head that fades to a foam
S - chocolate, dark fruit, caramel
T - chocolate malt, caramel, nutty, earthy, fruity, faint spiciness; excellently balanced
M - full body, creamy and smooth
O - very good baltic porter. I'd definitely buy this one again, but a little more booze might have done it some good.

Dark brown, near black and mostly opaque. Weak head and minimal lacing.

Roasted aroma and tart berries, hint of black currants.

Toasty malt. Mild roasted flavor. Odd funk tastes like milk a day or two past expiration. Sour flavor overall.

Medium to full bodied. Grainy texture. Well carbonated.

I can see where they were going with this but the end result just didn't pan out. Either I just don't like this beer or I got an infected batch. Either way, I won't be visiting this one again.
