OG 1108, FG 1026, Color 388.7 EBC, Chinook and Saaz hops. Bitterness 93.5 EBU.

Stronger version of a Baltic Porter. Comparable with an Imperial Stout but without the heavily roasted malt character. This created a soft beer with strong hops in the finish.

Between a Porter and a Baltic Stout...Chocolate, caramel, alcohol (Baltic hints) with a complete mouthfeel (Porter hints) and a soft carbonation. Hop complexity with a well balanced progressive strike.

Bottle from the Bierkoning. Dark, black pour with receding brown foam. Aroma is roasty, molasses and anise, quite boozy. Taste is malty, lots of anise, molasses, dark chocolate, light roast, strong alcohol warmth in the finish. Palate is full bodied, light carbonation, nice coating creamy palate. Good sipper.

Wow. I’ve had a few stunning porters in the last year, and this is certainly on the pile of the best. Strong sugar nose, earthy fruits, and a flavour that marches from the front of the tongue to the back. Sweetness, sharpness from the alcohol, to bitterness, and then a dessert like finish that ties all of those experiences together each mouthful. Truly wonderful. If I can secure another few bottles, I’ll happily let it rest a few more years! truly stunning.

Very good porter. A lot of stout notes. Aroma is sugars like brown sugar and chocolate. A sweeter beer with a thin plate but tons dessert flavors and a lite hoppy bitter finsh.

Botella de 33 cl en Cimmeria 12-04-2014 en el momento. Embotellada en 25-03-2013 y para 25 años. Color caoba tirando a negro con espuma beige bastante oscura y no muy persistente. Aromas iniciales ligeros a mieles de montaña y brezo ligeramente tostadas con maderas empapadas de licor y pequeños toques de chocolate y algo de café. Cuerpo fuerte (11 vol.) con gran sensación alcohólica en todo momento aunque a medida que va calentando va haciéndose mas ligera en paso por boca convirtiéndose casi como un licor. Sabores bastante dulces mieles negras y caramelos tostados toques de maderas con licor y algunos quemados, algo de chocolate. Gran cerveza sensación alcohólica y sabores intensos en todo momento. Para repetir de nuevo sin duda.
