Baltic Porter |  10.00% ABV

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes/Commercial Description:
Big, bold, black and barrel aged. A length conditioning period in bourbon barrels 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. Additional flavors include bourbon, vanilla, and oak.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5

Bottled March 2013 but just released last week.

A: Pitch black pour with a large, dense medium brown head. Head fades away slowly and with great retention. Solid walls of lacing too.

S: Lots and lots of fresh roasted coffee. Mild char and some dark fruits mix in nicely. Mild bourbon hiding behind the coffee with some caramel, burnt sugar and a hint of oak.

T: Oh yeah, this is nice. Coffee is more subdued here and the bourbon stands out a little more. Wow. Wonderful coffee flavor, one of the best in a beer I've ever had. Silky dark chocolate joins it with hints of char. Caramel and burnt sugar sweeten it up and just a dash of dark fruits. Smooth throughout. A little vanilla kicks in in the middle. Coffee turns a little sharper in the finish with just a slight acrid edge and a brief booze hit from the bourbon. Lingering burnt sugar and oak in the finish. Masterful. I originally scored this a 4.75 but after finishing the bottle I upgraded to a 5. I just can't find any flaws, it was a dream to drink and I'm literally sad that the bottle is gone now. How can you ask for anything more?

M: Fairly heavy, silky smooth and decadent. Wonderful.

O: Wow, I thought the regular bourbon barrel version was amazing. This is somehow even better. Coffee is delicious and a wonderful additional layer of complexity. Yet, not overpowering like so many coffee beers. Despite being so fresh, flavors are very well integrated and complementary. Taste is smooth and mellow despite the strong flavors and goes down so easily. One of the best beers I've had in quite a while. I can't find any real flaws.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.75

Bottle from brewery that is barrel aged coffee but mysteriously doesn't say it on the bottle.
A: jet black fully opaque with half a glass of mocha head that has a lengthy staying power of about 3 minutes
S: bourbon toffee, brown sugar, roasted coffee beans. One of the most pleasant smelling BA coffee stouts
T: bourbon right out of the gate leading into a sweet coffee and molasses combo and some boozy heat in the finish
M: bit thin on the palate but can't complain too much because fairly smooth from start to finish
