Incendiary Brewing Company Baltic Porter
What the brewers say
Complex Baltic porter exhibiting chocolate and light coffee notes.
What our panel thought
Inviting nose—hints of licorice, cinnamon, nutmeg, coffee, and sweet cream play with caramel and chocolate malt. In the flavor, roast malt emerges, imparting coffee-like bitterness and nuttiness—chocolate-covered cherry, cocoa dust, coconut, light caramel sweetness. Aftertaste lingers on sweet mocha.
What our editors thought
Chocolate, cola spice, and slightly fruity coriander note in the nose. The sip pulls coriander-citrus together with cola for an engaging if awkward duo that's sure to be love/hate.
