COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle, sampled at RBSG 08. Pours a deep black with a tan ring. Deep burnt malt aroma, with hints of dark fruit. Big burnt, toasted malt taste, with a bit of alcohol. Lingering burnt flavors. Very nice imperial porter.

oh6gdx (20274) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 28, 2008
Bottled@Fonefan. A perfect ending to two very nice days around in Ulfborg! Very dark rubyish brown colour (close to black) with small creamy brown head that stays for a while. Aroma is raisins, smoked wood, some peat, mild smoke as well as some slight fruityness. Flavour is roasted malts, coffee, licorice, alcohol as well as some mildly smoked wet wood. Really complex and wellbalanced. Fullbodied.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - AUG 13, 2008
RBSG 2008. Pours dark brown with a soft tan head that fades fast. Very smoky and earthy, heavy burnt flavors give an impression of BBQ’d steak, some charred hefty concoction. Finish has a touch of saltiness, that when mixed with the charred flavors brings out a touch of soy sauce.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - AUG 11, 2008
Richmond Summer Gathering. Bottled 1NOV07, #458, courtesy of dkachur. Black with no head. Mild nose, roasty malt, chocolate, raisin, a whiff of smoke. Excellent body - slick and satiny. Slightly burnt malt flavors, chocolate and a touch of licorice. Just a bit of saltiness in there somewhere. Excellent!

TheBeerGod (5218) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - AUG 9, 2008
Bottle at the Williamsburg Gathering courtesy of dkachur. Labeled #458. Near black dark brown pour. Absolutely no head on this except a larger bubble or two. Nose is soy sauce, roasted malts, salt, dark chocolate and cocoa. Taste is salty and soy sauce-like with more roasted malts, slight burnt coffee and light dark fruit. Body is near flat but has a nice slickness and is velvety smooth going down. Ends with hops and licorice, soft chocolate, soy sauce, and some odd herbalness. A unique Baltic porter!
