From tasting notes, 8/12

A - Pours dark and velvety, khaki colored head covers the top

S - Smells of smokiness and coffee. Rich nose.

T - Love it. Notes of mocha, smoke, black cherry, and rich dark chocolate. Very smooth!

M - Medium-Full Body, nice low carbonation that really lets it coat the palate and hold on.

O - Amazing Porter! One of my favorite Porter's to date. I appreciate the full body and layers of flavors. Got another one sitting in the fridge!

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - The beer pours a dark black color with just a hint of brown around the edges with a finger of frothy chocolate-khaki colored head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lacing.

S - Aroma is a mix of roasted chocolate malts, coffee, dark fruits, black licorice, with a hint of smoke and booze.

T - Starts off with some roasted chocolate malts with some raisin and other dark fruits, and some black licorice. Through the middle, some roasted coffee comes through with some light smoke and vanilla. The finish is a mix of roasted chocolate malts, coffee, dark fruits, a touch of peat, and a hint of booze.

M - Medium-plus bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a warming and sweet finish.

D - Very drinkable. Nice Baltic Porter. Really nice overall balance with good body and mouthfeel.

Short review from a fly at Cigar City.
Nose and palate are rich and intense, balanced between coffee and chocolate flavors. Light bitterness on the finish. Oily but not sticky, easy to drink. The alcohol is well integrated. A nice treat. Would look for it again.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - pretty much black with cinnamon 1/2 inch head that faded quickly to a bubbly ring; light lacing

S - coffee, nuts, bread, leather

T - dark chocolate, dark breads, roasted malts; mild finish

M - medium-heavy bodied with fine, creamy carbonation; very short, mild aftertaste of black coffee

O - super tasty. a bit different than some other baltics. less roasty and more bread malts maybe. very good at any rate. congrats to ccb on 1000 batches!

A-dark brown with no head at all

S-smells like a true baltic porter. dark roasted grains. no artificial flavors. smells strong

T-comes in with a very bold and robust taste of dark roasted malts. the tastes are very clean and strong. the flavors are so organic and natural. its not very complex, i like it.

M-medium carbonation with a dry finish

O-this is a classic baltic porter. this could've been mistaken for an original. its so tasty too, and extremely drinkable for the higher abv. there's nothing negative here. i want more!

On tap at BX Beer Depot's CCB Tap Takeover - Aged for one year

An example of a mellow yet robust porter. Rich and decadent flavor with notes of dark fruit and coffee to finish. Velvety mouth feel and lingering finish. Really drinkable Baltic Porter... Another winner from CCB
