Beer Review: Shmaltz Klingon Imperial Porter

Beer meets sci-fi with this one, and I couldn’t be any happier or geeked by what has been produced. The Klingon Imperial Porter from Shmaltz Brewing is a bold Imperial Porter that comes in at an ABV of 7.3% and 60 IBU. Not too thin, this one did deliver well during my enjoying of this brew and provided a nice overall aroma and flavor. The appearance was solid although I would have liked to have gotten more out of its head, but one is here to enjoy the beer and simply not just look at it. Check out my video to see all of my other thoughts on this ale and 'IwlIj jachjaj, that’s Klingon for “May your Blood Scream” or Cheers as we use it, lol.

Brewer Notes:

The First of 3 Limited STAR TREK Releases in 2017

STAR TREK KLINGON IMPERIAL PORTER

MALTS: Specialty 2-Row, Vienna, Melanoidin, Crystal, Honey, Pale Chocolate

HOPS: Columbus, Vanguard

Raise a goblet of Klingon Imperial Porter to the strongest warriors in the Galaxy. Discover the ruby undertones that pay homage to Klingon Bloodwine and fallen warriors who hold honor above life. “There is no honor in attacking the weak,” so take pleasure in besieging this 7.3% ABV Imperial Porter. But like this mighty elixir, Klingons also have a sweet side: Witness the wedding ritual where the gods forge two hearts so strong that once joined together cannot be opposed. (Just ignore the part of the ceremony where the groom swings his bat’leth at the bride!) A Klingon proverb states: “Death is an experience best shared,” and so is the first Star Trek limited release of 2017. Qapla’!
