"This one goes to 11!" Eleven different grains went into making this dark beauty! Robust, bold, delightfully hoppy, and well balanced.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2015 Interesting mix of all the grains in this one. Spiciness of rye oiliness of oats and maltiness from barley. More easy drinking than you’d imagine. Nice. Serving: Tap

On tap at the brewpub. Pours near black with a grayish brown head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has a note of coffee and a good amount of dry roasted malts. Flavor has a combination of dry roasted malts and dry coffee.

After confirming with Chuck the bartender, the full name of this one is "This one goes to 11 Baltic Porter". This aroma is full of chocolate sugar cookie and coffee. Beautiful and promising. It has an enticing tan head that thins rather quickly, but never fades. The brew is Imperial Stout-like in its impenetrable darkness. It tastes just like the aroma promises, though the sweetness is not overpowering. It is chocolatey, thick and robust with a coffee bean quality behind it. It is thick and smooth on the palate with a malty aftertaste. This is one sexy beast and I hope it stays on the menu for awhile.

tmoreau (3762) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 2, 2012
On tap at Lunar, and dispensed to a shaker with a darkest brown color, some ruby highlighting, brownish tan bubbles & cream head that gradually diminished to a ring & film, and left some wavey, etched-like lacing. The aroma was strong, Imperial Stout roastiness, dark chocolate, a hint of char, and a note of coffee on the back. No dark fruit esters or sweetness to speak of. Medium to full body, with soft carbontion. The hop bitterness was on the strong side, but did balance well with the abundant malt, and lingered into the finish partnering up with some decent dryness. A satisfyingly big Porter that could have easily garnered an Imp. Stout label.
