Our first collaboration with our friend and neighbor Nick Rutherford, owner of The Porter Beer Bar. Historically called a Baltic Porter, which was the Baltic States version of an Imperial Stout. Over 1000 pounds of eight different malts went into 8 barrels of this beer; including 16% Rye. Complex malt notes of biscuits, toffee, chocolate, and dark fruits. Hop bitterness is low; just enough to balance. Enjoy!

Dark Brown color with minimal lacing. Almost has a cask appearance. Sweet chocolate notes in the aroma and on the palate. Very smooth mouthful indicative of a cask conditioned beer. Very delicious and bold porter.

On tap at Porter. Pours a murky near black with a cascading dark brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a strong roasted malt presence with some bitter dark chocolate and just a hint of coffee. Flavor begins with roasted malts but has a growing coffee note with a hint of acid and bitter dark chocolate.

On tap at Wrecking Bar. Dark brown. Nice nose with good notes of chocolate and coffee with some slight roast. Very smooth and creamy. Touch of fruit. Very tasty.
