Aromas of dark rum, toffee and dried tobacco leaves present themselves in this unique Baltic Porter. Licorice root, molasses and almond flavors vie for attention on the tongue while a moderate bitterness and dark rum spiciness bring the beer into balance. Through an extensive lagering period this formidable beer eschews a sweet chocolate finish for drier, cleaner flavors of chicory and fresh ground coffee flavors that linger on the palate.
