Burial Beer Co Ulfbehrt Foudre-Aged Baltic Porter
What the brewers say
Forged from German and British malts and traditionally lagered in our American oak foeder, our Baltic porter is made with respect for those that came before it.
What our panel thought
Pleasant but subtle aroma: light roast, licorice, coffee, bitter chocolate, caramel. In the flavor, malt sweetness with chocolate, caramel, nuts; spice notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, coriander. Full body. Nuanced and interesting. Finishes fairly sweet.
What our editors thought
Unassuming nose downplays floral and citrus notes. Flavor unleashes some orange citrus, highlighted by a vanilla touch against the strong chocolate body. Not as texturally rich as some, but an artful combination with unfolding layers.
