For the first time since 2009, Alaskan Brewing Co has released it's Baltic Porter. I am not a strenuous supporter of all Alaskan Brewing beers, but this Baltic Porter (as you may know if you've had it) is special. I scored a case this evening, and it's drinking quite nicely right out of the gate, but liable to get better. The 09 I had a few weeks back was delicious, smooth, and whickedly complex. It'll be easier to save the last 2 or 3 from 09 with the fresher ones in the collection. This is a very good beer, that I almost hesitate to support so publicly (risking my allotment if it gets too popular), that a committed beer geek, into the style, should consider actively seeking. Your trade partners on the west coast or in AK can hook you up if you act quickly. Enjoy!
