On-tap at CCB.
A - Pours black, tan head, thin collar, spotty lace.
S - Big sweetness, dark fruits, light roast. A bit too sweet for me, even for a Baltic Porter. Would have preferred a little more dark chocolate and roast.
T - Big dark fruit, booze, light roast, light chocolate, some char. Again, lots of sweetness and light notes of chocolate and roast. Too sweet for me to enjoy much of, but not too bad. Finish is sweet dark fruits and cream.
M - Medium, good carbonation, creamy finish.
O - Not my favorite Baltic Porter, too much sweetness and the booze comes through big for 9%. That said, it's not bad but maybe just above average. Many others in this style I'd rather have.

A: Pour a deep dark brown color. Looks black in the glass. Over carbonated. Literally 3 fingers of light tan head. Sticks around a while. Some lacing bits.
S: Smells like dark fruits. Lager yeast. Dark chocolate. Cocoa. Maybe some Cherry.
T: Very carbonated. Getting a good amount of roast with muted chocolate.
M: Fuller side of medium. It is very carbonated so keeps me from saying full on full bodied.

Black with tight brown head and good retention. Funky herbal and roasted malt aroma and… is that rubber? Dominating herbal and chocolate flavor with a sweet finish and a light roasted malt linger. Thick, smooth, sticky, lightly fuzzy.
Big flavor as always simple and smooth. Flavors get a bit muddy but the feel powers through. I’m beginning to see a trend in the feel of the CCB beers. They’re thick, powerful, and enjoyable but it makes for some very similar beers. I really didn’t expect such a heavy feel for a Baltic porter.

Draft at Cigar City on 3/13/12.
Pours pitch black with a half finger mocha head that quickly settles into a thin ring. Spotty lacing left behind.
Roasted malt aroma with a decent amount of sweetness and booze. As it warms, the malt notes stand out a bit more. Hints of coffee bean, oatmeal and toast as well as some chocolate, dark fruit and alcohol. There's also some subtle spice, licorice and anise.
Medium bodied with a very strong, dry roasted flavor. Sligtly acrid with strong burnt malt flavors. Hints of burnt toast, coffee bean, oatmeal and toffee. Some interesting spices along with licorice and dark fruits. Kind of minty as well with some booze in the finish but not much heat. Abv is well masked but it's slightly harsh. I would have been fine with half of a glass.

Quite dark brown in color, nearly black, with a tan head. Heavy on the licorice and burnt sugar notes with plenty of roasted malt, coffee, and dark fruit. There is a light alcohol note along with some molasses sweetness. The flavor is decently sweet with molasses, burnt sugar, toffee, and some licorice. A bit of prune and raisin fruitiness and light alcohol heat on the finish.

Bottle to tulip.
A - Poured black with one finger of thick light brown head.
S - Big roast aroma up front with rich chocolate notes and a touch of smoke.
T - Roast up front with rick dark chocolate. The mid-palate adds big dark fruit flavours reminiscent of chocolate covered cherries. The finish has a touch of sweet molasses and a slight tart presence that amplifies with each sip.
M - Medium body; creamy. light carbonation.

A: Poured a deep, deep brown with great carbonation leaving a big brown frothy cap and a nice amount of lacing
S: Rather letdown. Some chocolate and grains but thats about it.
T: Deep bitter cocoa blended with roasted malt is intial. A milk chocolate comes out with a light dash of heat middle to finish but a very, very light coffee note. A bit grain flavors remain throughout almost with a very light funk as well. Finish is stinging a bit dry with a light aftertaste. Overall smooth and tasty.
M: Pretty big body, well carbonated
O: A good representation of the style!
