COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
My Turn Series #1: Dan brewed a Baltic Porter. Expect this thing to be dark and robust with a malty sweetness. A touch hoppier than the typical porter, the medium bitterness balance the malts and a deep chocolate or coffee aroma stops just short of burnt. If we did it right, this one oughta be one big, full-bodied beer.

Hard to improve on the bottleís description: Dan indeed has a chocolate aroma, malty sweetness, full body and hint of hops. Truth in advertising! Itís nice to see Lakefront borrowing a page from the playbook of fellow Wisconsin breweries like Tyranena and New Glarus and trying special editions. A minor discrepancy between the Ratebeer and bottle errata: Ratebeer has the alcohol as 6.5% and the bottle has it at 8.5%. May I volunteer to help determine the actual percentage? Iíve got an old chemistry set somewhere around here....

Bottle. Black pour with thick head and lots of lacing. Coffee and malty aroma. íN bietjie chocolote in the flavour, with more malt and some esteriness. Finish is roast malt.

Malty aroma, not a whole lot else going on. The beer is dark with a tan, thick, lingering head. The beer is bittersweet, some coffee and chocolate with an estery finish. Not as much hop presence as I expected. Alcohol isnít noticeable. Smooth mouthfeel, not a whole lot of carbonation Overall, a good porter. Iíd buy it again.

bomber. Poured deep brown with a well-retained beige head. The aroma picked up sweet vanilla and butterscotch upfront, with vinous notes and date sweetness behind.. light-moderate roast, and a lot of sweetness.. more of a nice brown ale than a Baltic Porter. The flavor found sweet, lightly-roasted black patent and smoky malts at the core, with light mocha bitterness and more smoky notes around.. dry, scratchy, roasty finish. Medium-bodied at most on the palate.. seemed roastier as it warmed up.. not a great Baltic Porter, but an easy-drinkiní brew.

Tap. Pours to a deep brown body with a thin off-white head. The aroma is chocolate brownies and charred black malts. Some dry earthy character and burnt leaves. The flavor is deep chocolate charred black malt with a light sweet chocolate syrup. The palate is dry and mouthwatering. Mediumfull bodied and pretty velvety.
