OG 1108, FG 1026, Color 388.7 EBC, Chinook and Saaz hops. Bitterness 93.5 EBU.

Stronger version of a Baltic Porter. Comparable with an Imperial Stout but without the heavily roasted malt character. This created a soft beer with strong hops in the finish.

All these years and not rated this! How did that happen? Opaque black - brown beer, a few tan bubbles for a head. Palate is smooth and semi dry and pretty much zero carbonation. Rich dark chocolate malt. Touch of dark fruits. Simple beer, and flat - but amazing!
