Cognac Barrel Aged Imperial Baltic Porter.
Black. One foinger of brown head, not bad giving the alcohol.
Intense smell, cognac, toasted notes, alcohol, dry fruit, light oxidation. Barrel present but not overwhelming.
Dry figs, plums.
Intense and full taste, long. Well, yes, alcohol, but well hidden.
Then again, artichoke.Vanilla, dry fruit, dry dates. The right amount of bitterness. Liquorice.
Great beer, complex and pleasant.

Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours a very dark mahogany brown, appearing opaque black in the glass with a patchy head that dissipates to nothing with slight lacing. Aroma of dark toasted malt, dried plums, dates, cherry, light cognac and oak. Flavor follows, with more cognac character, full bodied dark dried fruit, licorice and some light woody astringency. Medium bodied with light creaminess. Lots of barrel character in this aged Baltic porter. The classic dark dried fruit of the base porter are present, but mellow and smooth. Woody and clear cognac notes, especially in the finish. Has a lot of character I'd expect from an American strong ale, but the Baltic porter roots are obvious. Nicely done. I bit of booziness, but alcohol is well balanced. I like everything I've had from this brewery.

L: Opaque black beer with a three finger dark caramel head of tight foam slowly dissipating to a cap with some clumpy lacing.

S: Powerful aromas of toasted malt, dark cherries for certain, and some other dark fruits... prunes, dates, etc. Some vanilla, sugars, and oak from the barrel.

T: Follows the nose - not boozy. Nicely bitter. Very much stout like. Divine.

F: Medium-heavy feel. Right carbonation. Smoother and creamier than most Baltic what-have-you's.

O: Wow. My second Põhjala brew was nearly as good as the first. I'm lovin' these brewers!
