One Ping Only is dark as the stormy Baltic sea, with thick, chewy malts that satisfy, and rich aromas of chocolate, raisins and caramel. Barley and rye malts, oats, and some rare Polish Marynka hops create layers upon layers of complexity.

History & Style
Baltic porters share some commonalities with Russian Imperial Stouts, brewed strong to last long voyages across the sea. One Ping Only was first brewed in 2015 for Beau’s Oktoberfest, where it won “fan’s choice” at the festival and a place in the 2016 Mix Pack.
Aromas of chocolate, raisins and caramel lead into a rich malty sweetness on the palate. Notes of stone fruit, licorice, pleasing alcohol warmth and lots of complexity. Finishes dry with a slight coffee character.
Crème brûlée; espresso-rubbed pork belly or duck breast with roasted plums; gorgonzola dolce; liverwurst on rye bread.
