We tasted Victory's Baltic Thunder which beer fanatics have been waiting patiently for since it is supposed to be the same brew as the old Heavyweight's Perkunos Hammer. The beer poured a dark brown color with a nice tan head. The nose was very nice with lots of malts, but not overwhelming. There is a nice toffee hint in there, and the malts might be roasted. The first sip is smooth and sweet and leads into a dryer middle. The finish is nice and short. It is almost impossible to detect the 8.5% ABV. The malt leaves a nice, crisp lace outline on the glass as the beer is finished. This beer is a nice, extremely easy drinking porter. I have been told though that it is not quite as good as Perkunos was. This is a very solid beer and definatly worth trying.
