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.

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.
