Big, Bold, and Black. This unusual lager style has many similarities to Imperial Stouts. A lengthy conditioning period creates a silky smooth chocolatey mouth feel enhanced by the use of oats and brown sugar. Noticeable sweetness gets balanced by roasted malt and hop bitterness. At 10% alcohol by volume, this beer is sure to keep you warm on a cold winter night.

APPEARANCE - Ridiculously black with light colored head. Light does not penetrate this beer. NOSE - Scent of bourbon - kind of expected. FLAVOR – too much bourbon off the start. Any benefit of the porter or roastiness is overpowered from the start. Even after the beer warms up, the bourbon overpowers any other flavor. NOTES – It’s definitely a bourbon barrel aged beer, but that part overpowers any other flavor that one may enjoy from this one.

tectactoe (3081) - Michigan, USA - OCT 27, 2014
Bottle: Thanks, Matt. Oily, mostly black body with dark brown edges & a thin, tan head resting on top. Aroma of moderately roasted chocolate malts, light black cherry & prune, dense brown sugar, & a touch of boozy robustness. Flavor is not quite as roasty, but still has a decent amount of dark malts. Lots of toasted nuts, brown sugar, & a large back-end of rich, dark fruits, prunes, dates. Light hints of anise & some booze lingering in the finish. Medium body.

Tasting at Matt’s
Black color with large beige head. The aroma is very nice, it has bread and biscuits too; mild roasted malts, cocoa. The body is medium strong, it’s fairly roasty for a Baltic Porter, but the work with the malts is very appreciated, with beautiful chocolate, cocoa and bread notes; warming alcohol.

mcberko (8697) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 23, 2014
500mL bottle, pours a deep dark brown / black with a small beige head. Nose of cocoa, a touch of coffee and a touch of roasted malt. Flavour is very well-balanced, with notes of moderate roasted malt, unsweetened cocoa powder, a touch of coffee and a warming effect that finishes. Very dry, without any residual sweetness, but with quite a pronounced warming effect. Dryer than usual for the style. Very nice stuff.

reggiedunlop (3409) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Pours black with a huge mocha head...nice lacing and retention. Aroma has nice roastiness with chocolate, mild ash, and a touch of anise...almost root beery in a way. Flavor follows suit...slightly sweet and then turning to roasty bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is roasty with hints of anise and dark chocolate.
