3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Churchkey in Washington DC, served in a snifter. ours black with a moderate frothy tan head that remains and leaves lots of lace. The nose has fresh malts and grains, along with roasted coffee and earth. The flavour is moderately sweet with roasty malts and notes of chocolate, coffee and vanilla. This is balanced with piney hops that grow towards a long, hoppy roasty finish. On the palate, it is medium in body with a milky texture and average carbonation. Overall, this is a very nice imperial porter. Not quite as complex as an imperial stout, but it is nonetheless appropriate to the style. 2012-06-09

Why is it that 1/3 of the Cigar City beers I have are infected? Sour bretty porter is weird and not in a good way. SIGGGHHH. Lost Abbey, Captain Lawrence, and Cigar City should get together and whatever they have in common stop doing that.

Opaque dark brown beer, residual tan head. Crispy palate, semi dry. Rich dark malts, a little coffee and molasses. Dry finish with a trace of dried fruits. Okay beer but itís malty one dimensional.

Bottle @ Gregís house via trade with markwise.mtganks Mark! Pours a deep brown/black appearance with a massive brown head that keeps on growing seemingly. Very roasty, lightly smoky malty, anise forward aroma. Aise, dark chocolate, charred malty, chocolate flavor with some light fruity notes. A bit boozy. Not my favorite.

An example of a mellow yet robust porter. Rich and decadent, dark fruit, and coffee to finish. Velvety mouth feel and lingering finish

750mL bottle, sent from LateStart (thanks Jordan), pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of light cocoa powder, some roast, and dry wood. Flavour of light cocoa powder, a bit of sourness, some soot and burnt / roasted malts. Medium bodied, with a lot of the wood upfront, like itís been aged. Finishes on vinegar and sour cocoa notes. Bizarre Baltic porter, certainly not conforming to style. Decent stuff.
