Big, Bold, and Black. This unusual lager style has many similarities to Imperial Stouts. A lengthy conditioning period creates a silky smooth chocolatey mouth feel enhanced by the use of oats and brown sugar. Noticeable sweetness gets balanced by roasted malt and hop bitterness. At 10% alcohol by volume, this beer is sure to keep you warm on a cold winter night.

Beautiful clear, dark brown brew, settling to very dark, nearly black in the glass. Topped by a 1 finger dark tan head with good retention.

Strong, inviting aroma, teasing dark fruit and equally dark roast. Coffee comes to mind.

Flavor follows, with enormous roasty notes hinting strongly at rich espresso, coated in prunes and bananas. Bitterness provided by the roast.

Medium to medium-thin mouthfeel while cold, with a long, wet, lingering finish.

This is an absolutely delicious Baltic Porter, on par with some of the best imperial stouts out there. Flavor really reminds me of Founders Imperial Stout.

12oz bottle with MFG 1/30/15 on the side. Pours a pitch black color with a small amount of head. Good amount of lacing. The aroma is chocolate syrup, caramel, molasses, brown sugar and roasted malts. Hints of licorice and tobacco. The taste is roasted malts and chocolate syrup with some leather and tobacco. Boozey. Some woody notes as it warms. Finishes with more tobacco, roasted malts and chocolate syrup. Hint of coffee. Slick, velvety mouthfeel. Really digging this one. I'm hoping I can get my hands on some of the variants. Overall, fantastic beer.
