COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Baltic porter brewed in collaboration with Lew Bryson. This style is difficult to find outside of the Baltics. What a shame! The grist consists of lots of Munich malt and some chocolate and other specialty malts. A Bavarian lager yeast is used to create this. Dark and mysterious, subtle and well, it is called the Hammer. For those who care, Perkuno was the Baltic thunder god.

omhper (19809) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 19, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2004 Bottled, thanks Rastacouere! Very black, no head. Lovely aroma of chocolate and grapefruit. Reasonably dry, full bodied, some moilasses and chocolate punch. Some bitterness. Complex, but confusing. Baltic porters are usually very bold, simple beers, this one shoots for finer details and complexity, and gets a bit lost somewhere on the way. An interesting experimental beer though.

Bottled, alc. 8%
Opaque black, no head. Roasted nose with loads of licorice. Roasted barley, licorice with dry and almost metallic flavor. Long roasted aftertaste. A bit too simple to be great.

Oakes (12777) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 2, 2003
Near black, low carbonation & head. Roast & chocolate aroma w/ nuts, toffee and faint alcohol. Firm body. Lots of alcohol presence in between which lies roast, chocolate, sweet cream and herbal hops.
