Any Opinions Regarding Smuttynose Baltic Porter?

Any tasting notes or opinions out there regarding Smuttynose Brewery's Baltic Porter?

I'm a fan of the brewery, but haven't tried this release yet.

I'm partial to the Porter style and I'm wondering where this one fits in.

Thanks...

    Tasting notes: dark chocolate, dark coffee, a little bit of black licorice, dark fruits and molasses. There is very little hop bitterness to this one. The malts really come through. I loved it. One of my favorite styles.

    Also try the Duck Rabbit Baltic Porter.

    Regular Porters are different from Baltic Porters as Baltic Porters use lager yeast.

      Well some do, some don't. Not a requirement of the style really.

      A favorite of mine if the Victory Baltic Thunder and the Alaskian Brewing Baltic Porter. Haven't tried the smuttynose one yet, but I'm a fan of their stuff whenever people throw them in as extras in a trade.
