COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Balticus is our latest seasonal brew to hit the taps. Brewed with beechwood smoked malt to add a little twist to the otherwise classic Baltic Porter; its smokey, black, phenolic and luscious just the way we like em!

Aroma has nice roasted malts, chocolate, caramel, nice bourbon, too. Flavor starts with that sweet bourbon, then fades and lets the lightly roasted malts, chocolate, molasses, and light earthy hops slide in. Finishes sticky and sweet. Real nice.

12oz draft. Black pour, not much head but good lacing. Aroma is beechwood smoke and malt. Taste light coffee and chocolate malts with lots of smoke, but there is enough balance it didn't go bacony. Solid body. Overall, the first smoked malt beer that I actually liked. Smoke works with the brew instead of overpowering it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap from brewpub. Nose is sweet with some smoke. Vanilla coffee molasses. Mouth is similar with smokey finish that lasts. Great beer. Pours nearly black with thin head and very long lacing
