Baltic Porter |  10.00% ABV

Availability: Fall

Notes/Commercial Description:
Robust dark lager inspired by Porters from around the Baltic Sea region. This beer is luxuriously round with a mild bitterness. The malts contribute flavors of coffee, chocolate, and vanilla. The use of cherry-wood smoked malt provides a subtle hint of smoke.

Very excited to try this beer - one of my original 'wants' from when I joined BA and I was fortunate to procure a bottle at the State Liquor Store in Stowe, VT on 12/24/14. 750ml caged and corked bottle served in a tulip. Pours the color and clarity of cola with a loose, fizzy, quarter inch, khaki-colored head. Head quickly dissipates into oily droplets and specks and strands of lacing. Nose is vinous and roasty with kiss of smoke, cocoa and booze. Taste consistent with nose; however, you definitely get that lagered quality in the flavor profile (hard to describe what it is, but it's there). There's a bit of a medicinal grapey quality that comes out towards the back and lingers between quaffs. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with a carbonation just shy of lively, a light acidity and a residual burn at the back of the throat. Overall, not my favorite Baltic Porter, but very much true to style. Not something I would recommend for extended cellaring as I can see this oxidizing with time.

Purchased at the LCBO for just under $10.00 for a 750ml bottle. Served at 4deg C in a tulip

A- Excellent. Super dark and rich looking. A bit of head but not much. Almost black

S- Pretty good! Touch too hot though

T- Very good. This one had a year on it since I bought it. Good blend. Nice chocolate and coffee but light on them. Nothing overpowering except the heat. It's only 10% but not even close to being hidden

M- Pretty good. Touch thick

O- Very good. Have a few in the cellar as these types of beers age well.

Food Pairing

This nice beer went well with........ Deer Stew! Carrots, potatoes and celery.

Enjoy

Rich complex and sweet. Full of flavors like black forest cake, cherries, dried fruits, bannana, molasses, coffee, toffee, and many other rich and delicate flavors. My mate who tasted this with my though it tasted like cough medicine, but he's an idiot. Would definitely buy this again.
