12oz thin can. Best before 7/10/13 (surely a serious overstatement, Sixpoint)
Tasted side-by-side with Sierra Nevada's Narwhal. Perhaps an attempt to compare an imperial stout to a Baltic porter.
A: The lighter of the two, some light penetrates the tulip, revealing a dark brown hue topped off with a off-white crown that leaves some good lacing.
S: Serious toasty coffee aromas courtesy of legendary roaster Stumptown.
T: Sweet chocolate notes on the tongue, follow by the coffee. Great balance between the two.
M: Perfectly carbonated, this porter coats the palate with a nice, dry coffee feel. It is very smooth. Could it be the use of the Romano beans (the 3rd bean)?
O: A great porter that would have survived any trip across the Baltic Sea, and one that would have pleasantly surprised the recipients whether in Sweden, Finland, Russia, Estonia et. al.
As much as I liked it, I think I'm still partial to the Imperial/Double Stout style a la Narwhal.
