Karl Strauss Brewing Company has announced the release of Parrot in a Palm Tree Baltic Porter. The beer is the first release in the company’s Twelve Days of Christmas San Diego Style series. The beer is similar to a less roasty verison of a Russian Imperial Stout. It was aged in port wine barrels from San Pasqual Winery for two months. The port wine barrels bring out the beer’s raisin and plum flavors. This winter warmer boasts a complex bouquet of dark fruits, espresso and chocolate with hints of oak. The beer is available in 22 oz bottles in a limited run and has an ABV of 8.5 percent.
