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.

55 IBU

This is my favorite beer from Jack's Abby. Being a local brewery I have probably had more beer from them than any other craft brewery. In fact I have 3 growlers and 2 bottle in my fridge right now and sadly none of them are this beer - but if they were I'd be drinking them instead - its that good.

I am a big fan of the malt flavor in beer, not an overwhelming amount but a nice strong sweet sense, especially when the beer brings a balanced bitter component with it. This beer hits the sweet spot in my taste buds for this balance. Even at 10% ABV I could drink this beer all night, I just might have to do it home.

I find the flavor to ring of mostly molasses with a bit of spice to it - I really can't tell you if that's a cinnamon or a clove or anything else but I think of this beer flavor as having hints of that fall spice motif but with a much stronger smokiness. It causes the sides of the back of my tongue to twinge a little, but the way a good hot sauce causes your mouth to burn just a little - you notice it but it does not dissuade your next sip.
