STRONG FULL BODIED BALTIC PORTER
One day a Robust Imperial Stout and a Delicate Soft Lager collided. This is that day. Let us rejoice. Baltic Porter.
This strong, full bodied and flavourful ale has hints of chocolate, coffee, oak, roast barley, vanilla, caramel and figs on the nose and palate. After pouring, it's best to let settle and warm up for a couple of minutes to unlock all the delicate and complex flavours of this big beer.
The Brew Sheet
Alcohol by Volume (a measure of booziness created by the yeast)
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
Black, Brown, Crystal, Munich, Wheat, Golden Promise
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.
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!
