aged one year, a big baltic porter in white oak whiskey barrels, there is a ton of flavor going on here. lots of head too, and lighter in color for the style, more of a medium brown really than blacker, although its not wanting in the least for grain depth or complexity. there is an awesome vanilla aroma, heavy whiskey, heavy booze, tons of brown sugar sweetness, a little less of the bitter roast to balance, but pretty different from anything else out there i am aware of. the flavor is awesome too, lots of sugar from the whiskey, vanilla again, maple syrup, figs, it goes heavy on the toffee and dried fruit malt segment of the spectrum and a little less intense on the roast, which is different and cool, but definitely makes the beer seem sweeter. i really like the smoothness of this without all the body, and i really like that its fairly well carbonated too. maybe not so obviously a lager, its sweeter than most of these, but its neat on the yeast side of things as well, bready and almost crisp in the middle, real cool. overall a great beer, i wish they would bump the batch sizes up on some of these so their cooler beers like this could see the light of day. great stuff and it aged like a boss!

Thanks Troy!

Dark brown body, off-white head, nothing special about the appearance.

The aroma is mild, consisting of cocoa primarily. Cocoa arrives in flavor form as well. It is joined by molasses, roasted coffee, smokey malt and bitter chocolate notes. The flavors are rich, complex and superbly balanced.

A most enjoyable beer that really needs to be served at the proper temperature. Too cold and the flavors and aromas become almost completely muted. If you just pulled this from the fridge, let this one warm for 15-30 minutes for optimal enjoyment.

This is not quite as heavy handed flavor wise as the other Baltic Porters I have experienced. Nor is it as thick and syrupy. Some may say it is too thin and highly carbonated, but I think this allows for a more enjoyable, more manageable drinking experience. I polished off the bottle in no time. Quite unlike the chore that many terrific tasting, though overly rich examples of the style tend to become.

This is an experimental beer at Falling Rock in Denver...so says their email newsletter. There were 3 on tap; this one and a bock and German Pilsner.

This one pours a glossy dark brown/black with a small, light brown head that didn't last all that long. To me it looks a bit thin. Some reddish tints on the circumference.
Slight coffee and sweet toffee aromas. A hint of dark plum and cocoa come in and out. Thin aromas as well. Roasted malts come and go.

A hint of molasses in the taste. Slight smoke and coffee. A dash of bitter hops adds to a baked chocolate, dryness. Alcohol is well hidden, if it is indeed 8.8%. An average beer, not sure if it would win over BalPort lovers.
