(8.5% ABV) Poured into a snifter from the bottle.
Baltic Thunder appears a tawny brown with a thick off white head that displaysonly moderate retention. The beer smells of abundant dark fruits, anise, and coffee, with a slight booziness also present.
Its taste is rich malts, dark chocolate and weak coffee, followed by a dry finish, possibly due to the alcohol. Baltic Thunder has a mellow finish for such a big name, with just the right amount of carbonation leading to a very nice mouthfeel. Another great one from Victory: B+
