Lobster Lovers Porter

Well here is another Rinkuskiai beer, this is Lobster Lovers Porter, a Baltic Porter, an English style porter brewed for the Baltic countries. The porters the ABV of this is a little funny because beer advocate has is listed at 8.2% abv and the bottle has it a 5.2% abv . A bit strange on that, but it seem more like a 6.2% abv to me. This porter pours a deep amber color with a huge pillowy off white to khaki  fluffy head, it looks like ice cream. This porter doen't look like a true porter, but it is. The head sticks around a fades slowly. Not very much light coming though with very little carbonation. The aroma of Lobster Lovers Porter has a big scent of sweet caramel and bit of malts arounds. it does have a little bready scent as well. It does remind me of a nice sweet desert bread. Very nice aroma on this one. The taste of this Porter is a big sweetness and nice caramel with a hint of the malts coming. The taste of this is kind of deserty and sweet, something to have after a meal or on it's on. The mouth feel is full and rich, and lingers there a while. The finish is nice sweet with a big malt hit with a though of alcohol following it. The after taste is sweet cream with a full rich malted bread taste. Over all I give this an A+. Really a surprisingly great beer. Very good aroma, scent, flavors, taste and such on this. I really enjoyed this, wow it is wonderful. I highly recommend this Lobster Lovers Porter.
