More spoils from Ryan--I can no longer in good conscience discuss fantasy sports conquests on this location... pitch black body with a two-finger brown head... head is creamy and settles evenly--adorns a Hop Devil glass with attitude... malty presence is obvious.... no scent of peas or olives (!?).... clean and a bit toasted... smooth, medium-bodied, slightly effervescent at the throat... strangely no hints of alcohol mixed beautifully... consistent malty character with a toffee sweetness at its finish.... exhales reveal some grapefruit/citrus hints, soft and understated.. my first opportunity to taste a Baltic porter, I can admit my expectations were somewhat accurate, but the citrusy finish is a surprise. What isn't is Victory crafting a nother winner...

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.
