Cigar City Kalevipoeg at the Gates of Hell

Cigar City Hells11% ABV. Baltic Porter from Cigar City Brewing in Tampa, Florida. Landed this gem through a fella who lives out near the brewery (lucky guy!). Pours dark brown along with a thin light tan head and lacing that lasts well throughout. Sweet vanilla oak bourbon, caramel, chocolate, and light dark fruits comes through nicely in the aromas. The flavors were brown sugar along with a delicious combination of subtle bourbon undertones, oak, toffee, cocoa nibs, roasted malts, vanilla, and caramels. Medium bodied and well-carbonated throughout. Man, oh man, what a hell of a porter and do I wish I could get more of this! Among one of the better porters I ever had!
