Brewed in collaboration with Shelton Brothers. Lots of rye malt and spices inspired by the dark German bread.

Poured from a 0.5 L bottle into a room temperature snifter.

A: Pours opaque with a thick khaki head that maintains well and laces beautifully throughout.

S: Some notes of coffee and chocolate take a back seat to hops, fennel and rye, making it spicy in the nose.

T: Some roast up front, with coffee and a little chocolate afterwards, move quickly to a little hop bitterness and dry bready flavors of rye and fennel, but without being overpowering. All of the notes come together and leave a pleasant roast aftertaste.

M: Medium body with decent carbonation, the rye and fennel notes lend a little bit of astrigency to the beer, but it is not unpleasant.

O: A well-balanced and novel approach to the style, the rye and fennel add to the hop bitterness, leaving you with a big Baltic porter that flirts with the Russian Imperial Stout style.

A - Black with some dark brown edges and a dense, three-finger, cappuccino-like head that dissipated extremely slowly. Big bubbles with moderate lacing.

S - Lives up to the name. Bready, roasted malts. A very peaty, earthy aroma is also present. It all works well together, with a heavy pepperiness to it.

T - Rye bread upfront, followed by a moderate liquorice flavor. The fennel really lingers, and although enjoyable, I felt like paired with food it would be better (I tried a few different cheeses, which didn't quite seem to work. Switched to a complementary bread, which really intensified the spices.)

M - Mouthfeel was moderately thick, with a dry, bitter aftertaste.

O - Overall, a really nice beer. However, I would recommend sharing the half litre bottle, as the spices are quite pronounced (although I would say this is the beer's strength, as it is a 'pumpernickel porter' after all.)
