Heavyweight Perkunos Hammer Imperial Porter

RATINGS: 545   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.8/5   EST. CALORIES: 240   ABV: 8%
A Baltic porter brewed in collaboration with Lew Bryson. This style is difficult to find outside of the Baltics. What a shame! The grist consists of lots of Munich malt and some chocolate and other specialty malts. A Bavarian lager yeast is used to create this. Dark and mysterious, subtle and well, it is called the Hammer. For those who care, Perkuno was the Baltic thunder god.

From 12 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with no head. Aroma is roasted malt and coffee with a slight dry wineous dried fruit note. Chocolate malt flavouvered with a coffee note. Little winous raisin dryness. Nice and solid.

Ungstrup (37653) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2004
A black beer with a very beutiful chocolate brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with strong notes of smoke. The flavor is sweet smokey, slightly sour, and with notes of chocolate and coffee. A really nice beer.

Bottle, thanks to Dixen for sharing. Black coloured with a beige head. Aroma of prunes and liquorice. Flavour of prunes, liquorice and dried fruits.

oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2005
Bottled. Black opaque colour, small brown head. Roasted malt, sweet caramellish notes in aroma. Sweet caramel, old coffee and roasted malt in flavour. Aftertaste is mainly roast and coffee. Sticky, but pleasant palate.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2004 Bottled, thanks Rastacouere! Very black, no head. Lovely aroma of chocolate and grapefruit. Reasonably dry, full bodied, some moilasses and chocolate punch. Some bitterness. Complex, but confusing. Baltic porters are usually very bold, simple beers, this one shoots for finer details and complexity, and gets a bit lost somewhere on the way. An interesting experimental beer though.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2007
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of pineypower. Dark brown with a reddish hue and a small, light brown head. Roasted, slightly coffeeish nose. Medium body with rather sweet, roasted malt and a note of coffee without being overly burned. Subdued bitterness. Nice. 080707

Leighton (21286) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2010
Bottles, 2005 and 2006. Both poured thick and brown with strong, beige heads. Aroma of dark, roasted malts, coffee and bitter chocolate. Sweet flavor with lots of mocha, some tartness, and bits of smoke. Full bodied with soft, smooth carbonation. Finishes with lightly dry roast, chocolate sweetness and lingering smoke. The ’06 seemed a bit thinner and more tart, while the ’05 was more relaxed and attenuated. I give the ’05 a 4.3 and the ’06 a 3.9.

Koelschtrinker (20410) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 21, 2011
Malzig-prickelnder Antrunk, zu Beginn noch recht mild. Durchgehend mittelherb, das ab dem Mittelteil durchschimmernde Malz wird im Nachgeschmack würziger und klebriger, wirkt aber auch wässrig und beschert so einen milden Abgang mit verhaltener Süße. Danke an den Doppelbock! 10/8/9/10/8/9

Oakes (17685) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 2, 2003
Near black, low carbonation & head. Roast & chocolate aroma w/ nuts, toffee and faint alcohol. Firm body. Lots of alcohol presence in between which lies roast, chocolate, sweet cream and herbal hops.
