Beau’s All Natural Brewing Company One Ping Only (Wild Oats Series No. 56) – Baltic Porter at 8.5% ABV | 34 IBU

Beau’s All Natural Brewing Company One Ping Only (Wild Oats Series No. 56) Baltic Porter at 8.5% ABV | 34 IBU (C$6.23 at NLC Howley Estates, 600 ml, bottle date 8-Sep-2016, acquired 23-Nov-2016, reviewed 23-Nov-2016)

Appearance: clear ruby brown with two fingers of creamy light beige head, good retention and well-defined lacing. (4/5) Aroma: molasses, deep roasty chocolate, dark boozy fruit, coffee.  (7/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, medium bitter. (7/10) Medium-full slick body, soft carbonation, off-dry bitter finish. (4/5)

I usually find Baltic Porters a bit too sweet, but this one is nicely balanced. The sweetness is emphatic, but not overwhelming, and is balanced by a smooth body and moderate bitterness. In this case, one ping is enough. (15/20)
