Great Divide Brewing Co. – Smoked Baltic Porter – 4 out of 7

Great Divide Smoked Baltic Porter

Yeah, I know about this one. It’s average. They used all the right ingredients, but not quite enough for my palate. I look forward to trying this one again because I bet they’re going to amp it up in the near future. Denver is nice this time of year. I wonder what Peyton is up to these days? Overall smoke metric = 4 smokestacks.
