Growler, thanks to lurchingbeast! Poured into Darkness tulip.
A - Pours a dark brownish color, tan-colored head, sticky lace.
S - Sweet dark fruits, roasted malts, some toffee, chocolate. The sweetness isn't over-the-top, it's just right. Just how I like my BP's.
T - Roasted malt, dark fruity sweetness, chocolate, some caramel, and a touch of coffee. The finish is dark chocolate sweet and bitter, very nice.
M - Medium, good carbonation, creamy finish.
O - A solid Baltic Porter that I would have often, if available in my area. I will definitely keep an eye out when this is offered at CCB again and have someone send me a growler. Very good stuff.

Poured from a growler into a standard pint glass.
Appearance: Pours almost black with some red hints where the light hits the beer. There is a two finger, smooth off white head. This beer has good retention and really great lacing.
Smell: Lots of sweet and roasty malt right off the bat. Dark chocolate with some mild caramel. Nice and smooth.
Taste: Just as roasty as the smell. The roast from the malt is just little bit bitter. Some dark chocolate and sweetness. The finish is roasty and bitter.
Mouthfeel: The body is on the thick side with aggressively tingly carbonation and a dry finish.
Overall: This is a really easy drinking porter. I couldn't taste the alcohol at all. Simple and extremely smooth. Really glad I got to try this one.

Black, thin bodied with a dark tan head. No lace.
This smells like a stout right off the bat, so Baltic Porter isn't hard to believe.
Very well roasted aroma and flavor. Lots of cocoa powder to be found as well. There's a nice bitterness going on, but it seems to be more from the black malt than the hops.
Dry finish. Overall I really enjoyed this one.
