Baltic Porter
Brewed by GDBC

Brewed by GDBC, with guest emeritus John Heasley
Before there was stout, there was porter. Porters were considered the "big dark beers" of the world at the time and one characteristic they all share is that while dark in color they are not "roasty" meaning they don't taste burnt because they do not have heavily roasted malts in the malt bill. But even so, porters can have a sharp, somewhat acidic taste from all the dark malts used to make the beer. Long ago brewers discovered that by using a lager yeast to ferment the beer they could reduce that sharp flavor and produce a very smooth, almost soft, taste profile. It became a favorite drink of the Baltic region and these porters became known as Baltic Porters.

Deep and intense flavors of bread, chocolate, and vanilla emerge as you drink this porter. It has the trademark smoothness of a lager and the multi layered complexity of a truly fine beer. The bittering hops add enough balance to take your mind off all of that dark malt. Smooth, clean, deep and complex are the words to describe this rare and difficult to find beer.
