COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mighty as the rugged smith who made it, the blade is marked with a telling inscription. For between these jagged edges lays the storied steel wielded by mortals to please the gods of war and death. A deep and mystical darkness resides within, but this ominous bounty boasts only reward. Forged from German and British malts, fermented upon juniper and traditionally lagered, our Baltic Porter is made with respect for those that came before it. The result is a mildly spiced but highly aromatic lager with and ever-present aroma of chocolate, licorice, and roasted nuts. Fear not the presence of the blade, for today's prize knows no wrath.

Pretty darn delicious porter, heavy with dark chocolate and roasted malts, the sweetness offset by a nuanced but firm herbal bite from the juniper. Starts with a vein of bittersweet cocoa, coffee, and anise, then gains a piney hop backbone accented by tingly, brisk juniper. Finishes mocha-laced and dry with a smoky, fresh bitterness lasting deep into the fade. Pours an ugly dark brown lacking a much of a head of lacing. Aroma's full of chocolate and heavily roasted malts. Texture is oily and thick great for a hearty lager. Very, very good pint.
