About Baltic Porter Ale

About Baltic Porter Ale
Baltic porters are black in color with alcohol ranging from 7-9%. These porters have low hop aromas with hints of floral notes. Roasted malts with dark sugars, caramelized sugars and hints of licorice show in the flavor. Baltic porters may be brewed as both ales and lagers, resulting in an overall fruiter flavor profile when brewed as ales. The style was developed by English brewers to serve markets in the East. Today, some brewers are once again using top-fermenting yeast to make these beers.

Mahogany color. Aromas of kvass, zur starter, and dill with a satiny, vibrant, spritzy, dryish medium-to-full body and a tingling, delightful, medium-length carob, walnut, parsnip, and European butter finish. A tangy Baltic porter that will make an nice pairing to eastern European fare.
