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.

Growler of 2012 Framinghammer picked up at the brewery this past Saturday

A-Pours a bold black, but doesn't appear viscous, actually has the closest thing to an effervescent quality ive seen in a stout since black ops. good, but i like a motor oil thick pour

S- Notes of intense dark cocoa with some roast on the back end and just a small note of some earthy hops on the back end.

T- Bitter cocoa dominates, with other notes of earthy hops, some dark fruit and a an alcohol warmth

M- Thicker than expected and the slighter increase of the carbonation than I'm accustomed to in a big dark beer actually helps.

O- this beer really delivers on the bitter dark chocolate fix, but is a tad one dimensional. Fortunately I'm very fond of bitter cocoa, this was pretty easy to put down in spite of the 10% abv.
