It didn’t take long for the idea of a Baltic Porter to surface as part of the Leviathan series. Leviathan Baltic Porter’s complexity makes it as hard to brew as it is pleasant to drink – balancing rich malt with a smooth (not roasted) character, high-gravity brewing, and a unique fermentation process lend this beer a warming smoothness that pairs perfectly with a cold winter night.
Brewed with a highly alcohol-tolerant strain of lager yeast, Leviathan Baltic Porter has a smooth, full flavor with dark fruit and licorice notes in the aroma. De-husked roasted malt lends a dark chocolate character, while raw sugar and dark crystal malt provide some raisin and molasses notes. Ease into winter with this rich, complex beer – or set some aside for extended cellaring.
