Burnside Ivil Krushu Baltic Porter
At nearly 8% abv, this Baltic style porter is deceivingly easy to session. Brewed with the California Common yeast it leaves a clean finish with notes of licorice, subtle chocolate and molasses.
The historical remnants of the 19th c. Baltic trade in imperial stouts, Baltic Porters are typically strong, sweet and bottom-fermented. They lack the powerful roast of an imperial stout, but have an intense malt character. Alcohol ranges from 7-9.5% abv. Though they are typically lagers, there are a handful of top-fermented examples.
