COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.
Excellent.

mcberko (8691) - 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.

Big thanks to Alex for the Growler! Pours a clear dark brown with a with a dark brown head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has a combination of dark grain and roasted malts with a hint of chocolate. Flavor has more of a combination of roasted malts and dark chocolate that gives a slightly bitter finish.
