Reviewed from notes
Big thanks to Andrew for the hookup on this one...
A - Pours a deep brown with a one finger khaki head that dissipates at a good pace. Lacing is spotty...
S - Roast, chocolate, dark fruit, and a good amount of molasses...
T - Chocolate with roast, dark fruits, and molasses in the mix. Also pick up a touch of vanilla on the end. Chocolate really drives this one, and is prominate throughout. Roasted malts are fairly subdued, and the alcohol comes across very smooth. Damn tasty...
M - A tad thin. Sits somehwere on the medium bodied scale with light carbonation..
O - Interesting take on the style. Honestly wish more balitc porters tasted like this one. Really enjoyed the chocolate notes throughout. Definitely something I would recommend trying if you get the chance...

750 mL bottle courtesy of fthomasl, big thanks for sharing this one! Pours near-black with a fine bubbled tan head. Not much retention and lace.
Nose has tons of fruit - blackberries and raspberries specifically. Slight sour twinge and salty olives...interesting.
Taste is pretty cool and unique; black licorice, blackberry juice and dusty cocoa powder. Light leafy hops finish long and slightly bitter. Mouthfeel is fuller than many a porter, fells more stout-ish. Pretty tasty, Id definitely like to have this one again.

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
