BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Harpoon Brewery & Beer Hall
Massachusetts, United States

Style: Baltic Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Leviathan Baltic Porter is a dark, strong beer of considerable complexity. Brewed with a highly alcohol-tolerant strain of lager yeast, it has a smooth, full flavor with dark fruit and licorice notes in the aroma. De-husked roasted malt lends a dark chocolate character without being sharp or harsh. Raw sugar and dark crystal malt give some raisin and molasses notes while East Kent Goldings hops make for a long, earthy finish.

Someone was generous enough to leave this at a backcountry lodge for me to enjoy. If that was someone on BA, I appreciate your kindness.

Poured jet black. Chocolate and roasted malt flavors. Any booziness noted by other reviewers has mellowed out in the aging.

It was a genuinely exceptional beer, and I wish I could get my hands on another bottle or two.
