Parkway Brewing's Raven's Roost isn't the best Baltic porter I've had; Smuttynose makes a hell of a good one and that is my favorite example of the style. But this is a pretty good beer, and it's worth checking out. It pours dark brown, not much head, and the aroma is chocolate and a little bit of coffee and malt. The flavor has that salty, sweet thing going on that makes Baltic porters so distinct, and I enjoyed it.
