12oz can, thanks to DanielCoor. Shared with local raters. Dark brown color. Thin tan head. Good dots of lace. Bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation, lightly dry finish. Dark chocolate, oats, light metallic. Toasty. Nice big bitterness, minimal sweet, mostly all bitter. Lots of nice dark cocoa, especially in the aftertaste. Gets more enjoyable as I go. Nice complex, kind of chewy "stout porter"

Can shared by Dr Silverworm. Poured clear dark brown color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted malt and earthy aroma. Medium body with a dry smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium dark sweet flavor with medium dark sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid complex beer.

Thanks to crajun for the trade!
Can. Pours a very dark brown, almost opaque, small tan head.
Aroma of roast malts and cocoa powder.
The flavor is rich yet simple. Roast malt and chocolate that pretty much is what the aroma sets you up for. Not too sweet, not too bitter; well balanced.

On tap at the brewery on Halloween. Not sure I get the whole "Baltic porter" angle...I just thought it was a basic porter/light stout. Pretty sweet, chocolatey, with a dark brown/black pour and nice tan head. Kinda overwhelming on the sweetness, not exactly a balanced beer. Very nice if you like sweet stouts, I’d think.
