Victory Baltic Thunder

Type: baltic porter
Origin: Downington, PA
Price: $5.99 per 22 oz

I bought this one probably 2 months ago and I kept putting it off since I never seem to be in the mood for a porter. That was however a mistake. This is a perfectly balanced porter that is not overpowering or off-putting. The malts are light and sweet, and are faintly nutty. The beer feels significant, but there is no major alcohol flavor, surprising considering the 8.5%. It also looks like soda on the pour with an extreme fizziness around the glass.
