Baltic Porter |  10.00% ABV

Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Bottle courtesy of Alex. Thank you so much buddy.

Black...looks nice

Smells of nuts, roast, fudge, and smoke....smells nice

Taste follows suit....dash of booze, nutty fudge, smoke, roast, and a charry tarry finish....tastes nice

I've loved the BA variants and it's a pleasure to see where these beers began. A fantastic Baltic Porter.

Thanks to kmurray8621 for this one.

A - Black with brown edges, dark khaki head.

S - Baker's chocolate, coffee, roast, booze, toffee, mixed nuts.

T - Milk chocolate, toffee, coffee, alcohol heat.

M - Silky, medium full body. soft but pretty viscous heat from the booze in the finish.

O - Smooth beer, very solid Baltic Porter, not extraordinarily complex, but very robust in the flavors and characters it does express.

Had on tap at the otherside- pours a thick black with a one finger cappuccino head. Decent retention and nice creamy lacing.

Smell is unimpressive- a little chocolatey dark malt, a little booze and a little lager yeast.

Taste is big- pretty sweet, a little roasty, nice round and full malt profile, and a little bit of yeast.

Mouthfeel is nice as well- medium to full bodied with a little carbonation. Definitely a nice Baltic porter- get it if you see it and live darker beer.
