Be prepared to be consumed by the complexity of this special, strong dark lager. Fashioned after the obscure style of Baltic porters, this beer shares many qualities of traditional porter ale, yet is stronger in alcohol, more robust, and is fermented very cold with lager yeast. The exceptionality does not end there though; our brew master had the audacity to take this perfectly fine creation and drop huge staves of heavily toasted American oak into the lagering tank. The natural flavors imparted by the oak – vanilla, coconut, and mellow wood – complement the dark malt characters of cocoa, coffee, and espresso. The endless complexity of this special offering may confound the senses, or is that the alcohol….? You are hereby forewarned. 7.8%ABV

Thanks to someone for sharing this at a recent bottle share at The Flying Saucer. Glad I got to try this one. The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is full of big chocolate notes with some roasted malt mixed in as well. The flavor is also full of chocolate, with some fairly heavily roasted malts and a little bit of mint mixed in. The beer is very dry overall. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Waxed bomber generously served up by Jamie of The Covey, thanks! It pours mahogany with tan head. The aroma is a smooth mix of pumpernickel bread, black licorice, black strap molasses, musty dark roasted malts and earthiness. The aromatics come across tightly blended together. The taste is smooth moving from oak into roastiness and then into modest amounts of black strap molasses and earthiness. Just behind, midway and into the finish, are various thin layers of oak, earthiness and dark fruitiness pick up some and carry deep into the after taste. Nice treat.

Tap at brewpub.
Pours a deep, dark black with an off-white head that seemingly glows atop the beer. Aroma is smoky chocolate, brownie batter, and vanilla sugar. Flavor is smoky chocolate with a slight cilantro finish. Thick, gooey mouthfeel that leaves a trail of flavor along the tongue. Good stuff; I would definitely drink more of this.
