Not a Baltic Porter, but definitely the best beer I've had this year, and it's December.

A: oily black body but not as viscous as I expected - finger of dark mocha foam slimmed quickly into a thin collar and left delicate patterns of lace behind

S: berries and wood, something herbal and medicinal in the background; vague hints of a darker malt cocoa and some distant dank funk, like (yes, I'm gonna say it) wet horse blankets

T: lots of impressions occur quickly, ranging from chocolate syrup to tart dark berries to drying wood and lemon pith; sour but with flashes of bittersweet chocolate, and maybe even allusions to a dark wine, dry and full of berry

M: fairly full-bodied and full of tart tingle, smooth but puckering astringence and drying wood keep it tight and lean despite a pulling density

O: Surprised to see it classified as a Baltic porter, but I don't know exactly what to call it either. This is some crazy stuff - forget styles - as long as you don't mind the dark pucker, you have to try this if you see one. This is an extraordinary beer. The label says a "dark sour ale" and I found it to be akin to a wild ale with some chocolaty characteristics.

11 oz. pour at the Crooked Stave Taproom on 12/7/14. One of my favorites for 2014. Dark brown-red with a small amount of head. Coffee yoghurt best describes the aroma and taste. The yoghurt funk is much more prevalent in the aroma with the coffee as a backdrop. The flavor components are more balanced with a bit of oak thrown in. Tart with a medium body and carbonation. Save this one for last, your taste buds may be worn out afterwords.
