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.

Consumed 3/11/14

Appearance: Deep, dark brown with some clarity around the edges - pours with a small, light brown head - fades to a few wisps of a cap, retains a nice collar, leaves some spots of lacing

Smell: Dark chocolate, caramel, and some burnt sugar - roasty malts, with a big dark chocolate component - dark chocolate, chocolate malts, touch of something like burnt cocoa - some lighter caramel aromas, molasses, and sugar - alcohol is unfortunately rather detectable in the nose

Taste: Roasty dark chocolate and some booze - a range of chocolate, including some semisweet chocolate, dark chocolate, and baker's chocolate - very roasty - some hints of dark fruits -some sweetness from caramel and molasses flavors, with some lighter malt and yeasty flavors that serve as a reminder that this is a lager - lots of booze throughout, which is hard to overlook

Mouthfeel: On the heavy side of medium, mostly smooth, kind of syrupy with some residual alcohol

Overall: Much framing, very hammer

The barrel-aged version of this was rather memorable, and the base beer is unsurprisingly tasty. But I can see why there are many variations to this. It has some unexplained levels of booze that work quite well with other flavors (bourbon, for example). This is worth a try, but if I had to choose, I'd stick with one of the variants.
