This is a most excellent 9% massive Baltic porter. Big and strong with a huge coffee and hop flavor, this inky black Baltic is not as sweet as its Polish and Russian counterparts but is just as strong and aggressive in flavor. What sets it apart is the big grassy hop flavor to go with all of those dark roasted malts. This beer commemorates the death of Hunter S. Thomson with the label done by Ralph Stedman.
