Komes Baltic Porter is back!!

Unlike English porters, Baltic style porters are lagers, not ales.
We do not see a lot of Baltic Porters in STL
Komes Baltic Porter....$4.59 / pint

Komes Porter is a full-bodied Polish Baltic porter with a substantial roasted malt character, offering a perfectly smooth, rounded finish. It has majestic black color and great creamy head. Flavor of roasted malts is well balanced with espresso and chocolate hints.
Its complex, unique flavor and aroma will cater to the most sophisticated tastes. The taste changes over time: from freshly burned to more complex and dry.
2013 Bronze Award winner at the World Beer Cup.

Komes Raspberry Porter...$4.59 / 16.9oz bottle
Komes Raspberry Porter is a multi-dimensional, bottom-fermented beer. At the maturing stage, it is enriched with raspberry juice, Madagascar vanilla and Indian chilli peppers. It offers a unique combination of sweetness from the porter and vanilla and fruity notes of raspberries, topped with a slightly spicy finish. Despite its strength, the beer is extremely drinkable and reminiscent of chocolate and vanilla ice-cream. Over time in bottle, it changes its profile to increasingly mild when the notes of the roasted malts transform into dark fruits, reinforcing the beer’s fruity aspect.
