750ml shared with Kasey enjoyed from a nonic chilled..

The color is practically black with translucent clarity and dark cherry accent with crema type head with light creamy brown appearance and thick lace. The smell is chocolate malt with moderately sweet odor and mild raisin and gentle woody note with fruity esters from the yeast and mild caramel accent. The feel is chewy and lightly creamy with moderate carbonation and light bitterness with mild alcohol and mostly dry feel.

The flavor is nice and toasty with some mild pine tinges and a light caramel smooth malt flavor and hints of dark chocolate with a subtle raisiny yeast and mild spice from the hops with a flavor of alcohol in the finish which adds warmth and mild hint of dark coffee in the finish with a dark brown sugar taste in the residual taste. Overall I was overjoyed with this, thanks Adam for sharing such a good beer and bringing it from FL for me.

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.

Pours opaque but effervescent black with a tan head. Swirling reveals burnt amber/reddish rings in the head -- really pretty.

Rich, roasted chocolate with a hint of licorice mingling. Dried fruits are pronounced in the middle. Creamy in the finish with a hint of vanilla. Nice balance of sweet and bitter. Robust and medium-full bodied, yet it drinks much lighter. A touch of chew with the bitter finish is really nice on the palate. The finish is a bit long and lingers a while, much like a good, aged red wine.

Dessert beer. Or probably great with anything with cream in it. I wouldn't turn down a slab of NY style cheesecake. As a lover of malt, I can say I would purchase this again. Another fine offering from CCB.

750ml bottle shared with a new friend at Cask Pub & Kitchen.

A: Black with clear garnet highlights. One inch head of tan froth. Ok retention, light lace. Just fine.

S: Quite intense aroma of roasted malts and dark fruits. Dark chocolate, figs, grapes, cherries, adn molasses. Some faint herbal hops. Great.

T: Roasty coffee and chocolate up front, with serious fruits building in midway through. Dry, clean, bitter, almost tart finish. Long, lingering minerality. Terrific.

M: Lively medium body. A bit too frothy, but all right.

O: I really enjoyed this, but my companion found the fruitiness off-putting considering the style. This is most definitely on the light, fruity, lagery end of the Baltic Porter spectrum, which was something I appreciated but that others expecting a more RIS-like experience could find disappointing. Good as this was, I do wish I'd shelled out the extra two pounds for Speedway...

Cheers!
