BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Jack's Abby Brewing
Massachusetts, United States

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.

Pours very dark brown with small beige head. Smells of sweet roasted malt and mild coffee and cola. Quite a range of flavors to taste, starting with sweet burnt malt then bitter chocolate, coffee and some licorice. Finishes slightly bitter with a smokey, tobacco-like aftertaste. Feels moderately rich and smooth without being syrupy.
