9C - Baltic Porter

BJCP Style: 9C - Baltic Porter

BJCP: A Baltic Porter often has the malt flavors reminiscent of an English porter and the restrained roast of a schwarzbier, but with a higher OG and alcohol content than either.

Wort sample

Away we go. Yeast is still pretty fresh so almost immediate airlock activity. 

2020-6-19 (+5): fermenter sample. This will go into a keg later today for conditioning.

2020-7-10 (+26): sample with label

2020-7-12 (+28): cask pour action shot

2020-7-12 (+28): half pour

2020-9-23 (+102): This somehow got a bit over-carbonated and I was serving under regular 12psi pressure for a while, though still on N2. Then it calmed down and I switched back to 20psi and aerator (stout spout). Easy drinker for 7% with some nice chocolate character. 

2020-10-18 (+126): Still on! Here's a fancy portrait shot. Hasn't lost anything with time. Still tasting smooth and chocolatey.
