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.

Beery Christmas #17. Pours black with a nice head, dissipates quickly though. Aroma is very rich, a lot of roasty aromas dominate, mostly roasted barley and some chocolate malt. Cocoa and coffee. Very nice. Big body. Flavour is rather sweet, very malty, lots of caramel, somewhat smokey. Coffee and vanilla are noticeable now. The Kenyan coffee is a nice addition and gives a nice slightly acidic fruity coffee touch, but could imho be a bit more forward in flavour here. Vanilla on the other hand is very noticeable. All in all a very nice Baltic Porter, too bad the coffee is not a bit more central. Excellent nevertheless.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2018 Flaska beery christmas. Något tunn mörkbrun vätska. Doft av rostad malt och chokladpudding. Smak av Brownie, mjölkchoklad, rostad malt och lite hasselnöt. Smakrik men lite tunn munkänsla med värmande alkohol.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2018 Aroma is a blend of coffee and vanilla. Taste is strong and texture is creamy. Aftertaste is also strong, with the final note given by a hint of alcohol. Awesome beer to savour.
