Baltic Porter

In the 18th century, the strong English stouts were exported through the Baltic region to Russia—the origin of the Russian imperial stout style. Seeing this success, traditional lager- making breweries along the export route developed their own version of the style: strong and black, but bottom-fermented and lagered. Baltic porters are smooth, with caramel, chocolate and licorice notes, lacking the roasted, gristy qualities of a stout. Low hop aroma, medium- to full-bodied, with a sweet malty character. Strength ranges from 6 to as high as 9 percent ABV.
