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.

Pours black with short lived light brown head. Smell is moderate roast malt and a bit tinny. Taste is roasty but watery and thin body. Sharp hop bitterness too. Overall not bad but would be better with a richer body.
