Style: Baltic Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.00%

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.

A: [4.50] Looks black in the glass. Pours out with just shy of a finger of khaki head. The head looks creamy with tight bubbles. The bubbles cascade down the sides when tipped and form small arcs of lacing. The beer lists the ABV (10%). This beer was born 2/3/15.

S: [3.25] Smoke. Thick syrupy chocolate. Some earthy notes. Dark fruit.

T: [3.00] The taste is pretty subdued. There are roasted malts but then the 2nd strongest flavor I get is alcohol. Maybe small hints of chocolate - but I am really digging for flavors.

M: [2.50] The beer feels a little too light on the tongue. The mouthfeel is wrong for this ABV. The alcohol taste lingers.

O: [3.00] I have been saving this beer for a while. I had high expectations. Jack's Abby makes really good stuff. I do not include this beer in that list. The mouthfeel is very strange. Like the carbonation flares up on your tongue. The taste is muted. There are much better porters at 1/2 the ABV.
