Our Abstrakt series showcases one-off beers, brewed or blended to the peak of our abilities.Each release is unique and only brewed once!
The last Abstrakt release of 2017, AB:24, comes in the form of an imperial-strength Baltic Porter brewed with muscovado sugar and cold-brew coffee. This is a beer that is rich and warming, with a fruity coffee kick. Lovely now or for drinking with friends far into the future, this elaborate one-off brew will be satisfying no matter what the occasion.

The Brew Sheet
Alcohol by Volume (a measure of booziness created by the yeast)
International Bitterness Unit (the bitterness of a beer from the hops)
Original Gravity (abbreviated OG) is a measure of the fermentable and unfermentable substances in a beer wort before fermentation. Those substances are often the sugars that will be converted to alcohol during the fermentation process.
Beer styles are the categorisation of beer into easily distinguishable types. When doing this we look at history, colour, carbonation, bitterness, ingredients, mouthfeel… the list goes on
Chocolate Wheat, Flaked Oats, Munich, Double Roast Crystal, Medium Crystal, Oat Husks, Ground Coffee, Pale Ale
We'd typically use a lightly kilned Base Malt in a beer recipe, then add Speciality malts (sometimes darker, more complex, different flavours) in small quantities to change the overall taste and colour of the beer.
Centennial, Galena, Magnum
Hops are used in loads of ways, and they can give different characteristics to beer such as Aroma and Bitterness– this is why they rock!
