The Baltic Thunder poured dark black and like a cola made a nice fizzy head that dissipated pretty quickly. It had a tiny bubble pattern on the outside. Not much in the way of lacing but is pretty typical for the style.
The smell was toffee just as advertised with a sweetness dark fruit in the background. It smelled delicious and into the taste you got the molasses and prune fruits come into play. It finished semi dry and had a tad of burn hit the back of the throat on the way down. Overall very impressed. Not much for a porter fan but this is definitely one of the better porters to date.

Growler pour into a nonic pint.
A- Black, dark red highlighting. Tan 1/4" head, kind of an espresso crema style. A bit lacy.
S- Coffee, cocoa, small hint of dark fruits and booze.
T- Roasted sweetness. Malty. Not as dry and roast as a stout but really nice for a strong porter.
M- Full body. Sweet body. But a balancing semi dry finish.
O- Great body and flavor. Heavy, but easy drinking.
