Lew has written much about his enthusiasm for the creation of this beer from the Victory Brewing Co. of eastern Pennsylvania but I only got the chance to open one about a year after it hit the market. David was way more on top of the news. This is a decidedly good brew. And, like a lot of Baltic porters, it is dangerously good as the 8.5% is well hidden under the milk chocolate, espresso and a dash of licorice that slips so easily past the chiclets that morphs until, by the finish, there is a vein of dark bitter chocolate and a bit of twiggy mint hop that just stays. Maybe a little prune in there, too. Not a roasty bomb at all - very much in line with what an Okocim porter from Poland says to those who have ears to hear.
Plenty of BAer respect.
