Baltic Porter, Burning Sky
Added: Thursday, February 2nd 2023
Baltic Porter 7.4%
As the stout market is booming, this launch by Burning Sky is timely. It’s a faithful recreation of the strong porters and stouts exported to Russia and the Baltic States from London in the 18th and 19th centuries.
The beer is aged for some time before it is packaged. It’s brewed with Pale Pilsner Malt, Pale and Dark Munich Malt, black malt, roasted barley and pale chocolate malt. The hop variety is Czech Saaz. The beer is suitable for vegans. It has a roasted grain and dark fruit aroma with spicy hop notes. Creamy malt, notes of roasted grain, burnt fruit, butterscotch and liquorice are balanced by peppery hops on the palate. The finish is bittersweet to start with roasted grain, dark fruit, butterscotch and liquorice dominating but it is finally dry and bitter.
