Les Trois Mousquetaires Porter Baltique
Les Trois Mousquetaires Porter Baltique as part of the Michael Jackson Rare Beer of the Month Club. The beer pours a black color with a lofty and frothy tan head that leaves lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of toasted malts, molasses, chocolate, vanilla, caramel, and grassy hops. The taste is bold and very chocolaty with a mixture of milk and dark chocolate. Plenty of toasted malts with a hint of smoke come out to play before being smoothed out by caramel and vanilla. The after taste leaves some grassy hops behind. The alcohol content is 10.0% ABV. I was entirely impressed this beer and the amount of flavor packed into a glass. Some much chocolate was present on the tongue, but toasted malts took the starring role, all tied together with caramel, molasses, and vanilla flavors.
