Smuttynose Baltic Porter
2012 bottle aged for a year into a Cigar City sniffer
A: pours black/brown with a nice full head that dissipates quickly. Lacing is decent, nice ring but doesn’t hold long.
S: espresso and malt that smells like brown ale.
T: Wow over carbonation, some dark notes that fade into a pleasant malty background. Nut flavors throughout.
M: A full nut flavor with more carbonation.
O: interesting, not bad, but more like a brown ale than a Baltic porter.

2010 bottle. Blizzard of Feb 8 2013.

A - very very dark. Lighter brown tones at the edges. Tan head with good retention.

N - fruit smells are very forward. Roasted malts present as well.

T - really strong dark dry fruits. This one is a shipper for sure. I feel like there's some tobacco there too.

M - nice and chewy.

O very good. Good one to share or to have over the course of several hours.

Cheers!
