COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When naming this Baltic porter, a collaboration with Tampa’s famed Cigar City Brewing, we opted for Jurata as a nod to a mythological mermaid known to roam the depths of the Baltic Sea, just as energetic yeast used to brew this deep dark beer navigated our fermentation tanks. Dive in and enjoy Jurata’s true-to-style rich and complex flavors!

Dark brown near black color with tan head. Aroma is lactose, cocoa, toffee, and caramel. Taste is lightly sweet and creamy with solid back end bitterness. Good beer.

22oz bottle. Nice beer. Could smell the alcohol as soon as I opened it. Surprisingly, alcohol is well hidden in this beer for 8% abv. Dark, smooth. Buzz snuck up on me. I got knee high snow this weekend. Perfect for chillin while the white stuff piles up.

Bottle... Pours clear and black with crimson highlights when held up to very bright sunshine. Small, creamy, lightly tanned head. Great retention. The aroma is a malty, nutty, fruity swirl of brownies, pistachios and dark cherries. Full-bodied with tingly carbonation. The deeply roasted flavor consists of bittersweet dark chocolate accompanied by less significant rations of dark cherries and citric acidity. Finishes carbonic with a medium-bitter aftertaste.

jgb9348 (5315) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 18, 2015
Rich deep brown body with a hazy smoke glow and a thin, fast-dying tan head, just showing oil after it fades. Aroma of smoke, oak, vanilla, rye, grain, caramelised sugars and a lot of pungent alcohol warmth. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong roasted malt flavour with a good dose of bourbon, oak, grain, vanilla, honey, rye, peat and a touch of smoke as well. Aftertaste is just as complex with a large alcohol warmth throughout, also showing some subdued oatmeal, malt, grain, nut and raisin sweetness and finishing with the bourbon barrel flavour. Overall, a nice beer with more of a kick than I was expecting - bordering on a barrel-aged stout or an imperial stout instead of ’simply’ a Baltic Porter, but not a bad option in any book. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 30-March-2014 for US$8,99 sampled at home in Washington on 17-November-2015, about 20 months after purchase.

Bottle shared at at tasting. Thanks Tim! Pours a deep black with ruby highlights. Roasted malt, light roasted coffee, dark fruit and soy sauce on the nose. Taste is roasty with some light sweetness. Easy drinking with a dry and slightly fruit-forward sour finish.
