Notes

Club COC 1st Place award winner October 2005 40 points Aroma: (9/12) Big Malty Aroma with some Chocolate notes. Light fruitiness with understated alcohol. (11/12)Strong raisin smell, alcohol notes, slight molasses Appearance: (3/3) Very Deep Brown with good clarity and reddish hues. Good lasting Tan head. (3/3) Thin head, pours thick, good lace Flavor: (15/20) Deep sweetness with malt and raisins. Almost cloying but it stops short and leaves you wanting another sip. (16 14/20) Immediate alcohol warming, malty, rum-my Mouthfeel: (4/5) Good full mouth with medium carbonation (4/5) Med/keavy bodied. is maybe slightly undercarbonated but within guidelines Overall Impression: (8/10) A good example of a Baltic Porter. Sweet but not overdone. Smooth fermentation characteristics (7/10) Wasn't too heavy, Good complexity with dark fruits. Alcohol wasn't too overpowering 2/19/2005 14.2 brix 1.036 2/1/05 measured OG 22.8 brix 2/2 am slight yeast activity
