Matthee & Vaquero—tasting notes
Matthee & Vaquero is an Imperial Baltic Stout by Jakobsland Brewers brewed for the 3rd anniversary of the brewery, with a malt base with Munich, Caramel and Carafa and cacao and vanilla aditions. It has a lot of roastiness on nose, with coffee notes and hints of vanilla and cacao. In palate is dry and bitter with a not very alcoholic mouthfeel, hints of cacao and a dry finish.
Baltic Porter mixes the malt flavors of English Porters with the restrained roast of German style smoked beer, and adds a higher ABV. It usually has complex aroma and flavour profiles with caramel, chocolate and/or fruits, with no sourness at all. Taste has a roasted touch and a clean lager character, but is much less roasted than an Imperial Stout.
