COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Baltic-style porter has a robust malt character and a slight herbal hop bitterness. Aged for 12 months in 10 year old Kentucky bourbon oak barrels, this alluring dark liquid features appealing undertones of vanilla, oak, cocoa and coffee. This aging occurs in abandoned mines in Michigan, at a constant temperature of 45F.

Willrunforbeer struggling to remove the wax off the top of the 12 oz. Bottle, why are brewers still waxing bottles? It does nothing to keep out air *sigh* anyhow, is straight up Rye whiskey, no hiding that. Nothing but whiskey. The flavor has a weaker note of whiskey then the aroma was leading me to believe. Roast, chocolate and integrated barrel. Body is what you find for Porter, a tad thin. But the flavor is very nice.

12oz bottle covered with lots of annoying red wax. Pours coca cola brown with a beige head. Aroma is raisin, chocolate, whiskey, vanilla. Flavor has the same, with a bit of oak in the finish. Good flavor, but a touch thin.

DiarmaidBHK (3726) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Bottle from Magsinva. Pours black with a thin brown head. A bit of wood on the nose. Definitely has the characteristics of a Baltic porter on the tongue with hints of bourbon and wood. Hides its booze pretty well. Solid for style.

Bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a slightly translucent dark brown cola with bubbly beige head that steadily dissipates into thinner lacing. Smells good too; dark malt, chocolate, vanilla, oak, roast, and mild notes of bitter hops. Tastes like it smells, but less decadent and more oaky. Mouthfeel is medium to medium-full bodied; a bit thin for 12%. Good, not great, and smells better than it tastes.

Bottle, thanks tim! Deep brown with tan head. Fruity aroma, vanilla, oak. Flavour is a very strong bourbon beer, fruit and vanilla are there but itís quite boozy. Overall super nice though.
