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

11/2014 Batch 3. Poured from a bottle into snifter, the beer is a dark, almost black coloring, with a wisp of brown bubbling on the surface. Aromas of subtle dark chocolate, bitter coffee, plum and date, earthy highlights, tart cherries, whiskey spice and booze, and some woody spicing. Flavors are very sour and tart forward, with a cherry overtone on a backbone of old world fruit and warming booze. Smoke ghosts linger on your tastebuds after a while. Dig in a bit, and you'll find some chocolate and coffee character, as well as that whiskey spice and warmth. Very smooth and robust, yet dry and crisp at the same time. The aftertaste is more of the chocolate, coffee, and smoke, after the sour and tart notes clear the deck. Dry, sour, puckering, tart, lingering finish. This is a tasty damn beer.
