McMenamins Beer (All Years) — photo 26 of 100: A pint of Deep Sea Baltic Porter I had at the McMenamins Raleigh Hills Pub. According to the brewer:
“This beer pours with a deep black color and a creamy, dark-tan head. Upon the first sip you’ll enjoy huge roasted malt flavors along with a slightly spicy hop aroma. This porter has a deceptively-high alcohol content and was fermented with Kölsch yeast to produce lager-like characteristics which are traditional in Baltic Porters.” Measurements: 7.35% ABV • 31 IBUMy notes from that day read: “A nice beer to have on its own, without a meal ... porters and stouts seem better stand-alone. To my taste buds it seems slightly sweet ... could be a good dessert beer. I would definitely get it again, under the right circumstances.”
The pub is located in the Raleigh Hills neighborhood between Portland and Beaverton, on SW Scholls Ferry Road, near the intersection of Oregon Route 10 and OR 210. January 2017.
