look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Look: It pours dark brown with a dark brown head. head retention is moderately low.

Smell: It has aromas of chocolate and wood with a hint of smoke. It has some roasted notes and dark fruits low in the background.

Taste: The hickory and some smoke are more prominent with the chocolate and dark fruits in the flavors. Roast is low in the background.

Feel: It has a medium full body with low carbonation. The hickory, smoke, and roast carry into the aftertaste.

Overall, an interesting flavor for a Baltic porter with the hickory and smoke taking over a bit in the flavor, but it is good even with that.

Sampling a cellar temp 16 oz can into a pint glass. The beer is a part of a trade with @jerryfreak. thank you.
the beer pours a clear cola brown and some light passes through on the edges of my glass.
A fizzy beige head foams up 2 cm and fades quickly to nothing after the pour.
The aroma is all malt with some brown sugar and a bit of molasses coming through. there is also a decent charred note on the nose. Booze and hops stay hidden on this one.
First sip reveals an average body with very smooth texture and very fine and tingly carbonation that tickles my palate on each sip.
Flavor is similar to the nose with molasses, charred wood, brown sugar and a bit of lingering bready notes with maybe a hint of anice. Finish lingers and is enjoyable and I find that the glass is empty much sooner than I thought it would be for an 8.5% brew. Could be dangerous as its very drinkable and enjoyable.
Glad to have tried this tasty baltic porter.

Jet black, thick, than head left no lacing. Smells woody, smoky, chocolatey with coffee. Nice medium to full body. Moderate to low carbonation. Sweet, roasty, char, tree bark, earthy, chocolate and coffee flavor. Nice bitter and woody finish. Strange but wonderful.

A: Pours an opaque jet black in color with moderate to heavy amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising quickly along the edges of the glass and very faint dark cola brown colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall fluffy foamy tan head that reduces to a large patch of mottled very thin film covering the majority of the surface (90%+) of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Slightly stronger than moderate aromas of roasted malts with light aromas of charred malts, light aromas of earthy hops, and hints of hickory bark/wood.

T: Upfront there are slightly stronger than moderate flavors of roasted malts with light flavors of charred malts and no perceptible sweetness. Hints of licorice/anise. That is followed by light flavors of earthy hops and just a hint of hickory bak/wood. Moderate amounts of roasty bitterness which lingers through the finish.

M: Slightly heavier than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth with a light to moderate amount of dryness in the finish.

O: A really nice example of Baltic Porter - very enjoyable with really nice flavors, aroma, and mouthfeel. Alcohol is well hidden and the beer is easy to drink and enjoyable.
