COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A collaboration brew with our friends from AF Brew (St. Petersburg, Russia). Imperial Baltic Porter brewed with Kenyan coffee, Bourbon vanilla and smoked malt. People in the north struggle with their emotional roller coaster in the heart of Summer. It is raining cats and dogs anyways, so let’s celebrate this melancholy.

Nieduża, drobna piana, szybko redukująca się do firanki. Barwa ciemno brązowa z pływającymi drobinkami drożdży. W aromacie praliny, czekolada, orzechy i pumpernikiel. W smaku słodkie (może nawet nieco cukrowe), czekoladowo karmelowe, z lekką, pikantno tytoniową goryczką i posmakiem snickersa. Niskie do średniego wysycenie, w odczuciu półpełne, wyklejające, odrobinkę popiołowe i z ładnie ułożonym alkoholem. Kawa, wanilia i wędzonka na granicy autosugestii...
Jak do tej pory to najfajniejsze z degustowanych piw od estońskiego Sori Brewing... No i jednoznacznie #teamslodyczka.

Thin to medium greige head, dense, over virtually black beer. Chocolate², Mars® bar, both milk & black chocolate, and a hefty dose of vanilla. Even a bit too hefty, and too sweet. Sugared peanuts, whiff of nutmeg. Sweet chocolate, Bourbon, vanilla and Cherry Heering. Vanilla beans, rather than the pod ones.. Sweet cheese, somehow. Very chewy, slick, absolutely full bodied, light alcoholheat. Overly sweet, even cloying. Vanilla drink and no longer beer - not convinced.

ciocanelu (2942) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - SEP 6, 2017
Really dark brown color with light brown head. Aroma has baker's chocolate with sugar, sweet cacao drink and toasted dark malts. Taste starts sweet and malty, continues with sweet cacao and chocolate, slightly astringent on the finish with roasty bitterness and light alcohol burn. Medium to light body, quite dry, medium to low carbonation. It's good but it feels a bit artificial and it could also use some more body.

geolgau (456) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - SEP 4, 2017
Aroma is great: dark chocolate, vanilla, dates jam, high quality coffee, cocoa biscuits and wafers. Taste is sweet, integrated in a full body with little carbonation. Hazelnut wafers, cocoa powder, sweet dark malts, raisins. Aftertaste is sweet and alcoholic, with spices to complete a whole experience. Awesome!

330 ml. bottle @ Beerlovers Bar. Black, thick deep mocha head. Nose is vanilla, chocolate, marshmallow cacao, sweet, caramel,… Taste is like sweet caramel, sugar, cacao, lovely but a bit too artificial tasting with marshmallow, cacao, vanilla, milk chocolate, toffee, body is likewise. Very nice beer but a bit too much on the marshmallow & cacao meaning that it doesn’t have a real Baltic Profile just the stuff layered on top but its tasty & quite a bit so.

beton (700) - Tarnobrzeg, POLAND - AUG 29, 2017
Bukiet aromatu tworzy kawa, gorzka czekolada, espresso, ciut ogniskowej wędzonki i lekka wanilia w tle. Piwo gładkie, kremowe w odbiorze. Goryczka średnia w stronę wysokiej. W smaku powtórka z rozrywki. Dużo kawy, mlecznej czekolady, genialny balans między wytrawnym charakterem a lekką dozą słodyczy z dodatkiem przyjemnej wędzonki.

@ Beerlovers Bar Nice vanilla and chocolate in aroma. This is an imperial stout rather than a porter. The 11% ABV gives it a full body. Caramel, lots of chocolate, vanilla, nice tender coffee. Sticky and thick mouthfeel.
