The Baltic Porter originates from the late 19th century when the Baltic states wanted to brew their own version of the increasingly popular imperial stout. These were traditionally brewed with ale yeast, but brewers realised that fermentation was far quicker in their colder climates using lager yeast instead. The lager yeast also gave a cleaner profile with fewer fruity esters (usually found in traditional porters), and as such, the Baltic Porter was born!
Utopian Brewing and Orbit Beers share a love of traditional European-style beers, and following on from their Altbier collaboration in 2022, they’ve teamed up again in 2023 to celebrate the traditional Baltic Porter.
At 7.4%, this deep chestnut-coloured Porter has a complex malt profile with aromas of caramel, chocolate, toasted hazelnuts, and dried cherries. Expect a smooth, malty sweetness and hints of liquorice, with lively carbonation, a boozy warmth, and a dry finish.
