Probably my favorite Porter out there. It has a slick feel on the mouth and is one of the easier drinking Porter you will find. It does not feel or sit heavy like many do. It does not have a harshness to it like others do either. It's a beer you could enjoy many of back to back without feeling full.

A Baltic Porter using lager yeast, aged on Chauchalalate wood.

I would say this is a "simple" beer, but it really isn't. From the appearance to the aroma, taste, feel and overall there is nothing that stands out. It's not overly complex. It has a nice 'drinkability' to it.

With that said, the subtleties is what makes this beer pretty darn good. Coffee, espresso, chocolate, caramel, vanilla, dates, leather and plum are blended quite nicely. Nothing really stands out, although the chocolate and espresso may take the honors. The wood is less woody and more earthy, if that makes sense. I think it adds a grassy-cocoa to the beer, and nice smoothness.
Hints of spice throughout--nutmeg, paradise, maybe cinnamon.

Black body with a thick and creamy, light tan head; good lacing clinging to the glass. Gently roasted grain nose; dark chocolate; cocoa; malted milk balls; caramel. Big toffee flavor with a tangy/sour hint (from the oak-aged bourbon barrels?); chocolate; sour cherries. Medium-heavy body; smooth; creamy; semi-dry finish.

A big and bold beer with a certain hard-to-describe deftness towards creating a satisfying taste and feel. Excellent job in bringing flavor forward while taming the ABV.

On tap at Hops and Pie and served in a snifter. Dark black with zero head. Aroma is malts, dark fruit, porter. Flavor is nice, dark malts and the wood aging is apparent. Nice flavor, easy to drink and sort of complex with the wood aspects. Nice beer.
