Notes/Commercial Description:
Leviathan Baltic Porter is a dark, strong beer of considerable complexity. Brewed with a highly alcohol-tolerant strain of lager yeast, it has a smooth, full flavor with dark fruit and licorice notes in the aroma. De-husked roasted malt lends a dark chocolate character without being sharp or harsh. Raw sugar and dark crystal malt give some raisin and molasses notes while East Kent Goldings hops make for a long, earthy finish.

Good Baltic Porter. Pours a dark brown clear color into a pint glass. Ruby highlights throughout when held to a light. Can see an outline of your finger on the far side of the glass when held to a light as well. The head is light tan, fairly small, but good retention.

Pleasing aroma of chocolate, malts, and dark fruit.

Taste is fairly complex, yeast, chocolate, dark fruit, malts, and sweetness. A very enjoyable taste.

Mouthfeel is rich and smooth, nice blend of flavors. High alcohol is not that apparrent.

A nice drink for a cold night, smooth and satisfying.
