Wayfinder Beer Gravity Drop Baltic Porter
What the brewers say
Deliciously rich, elegant, and warming, with notes of chocolate, fig and caramel.
What our panel thought
Barrista-borne aroma—roast malt with nice nuances of coffee, toffee, browned toast, brown sugar. Flavor tones it down—sweet coffee and nutty character enhance the bitter/sweet interaction. Lacks the richer malt spectrum; body is a bit mild. Assertive but pleasant hop-bitterness. Smooth warmth.
What our editors thought
Molasses, burnt caramel, and an almost cinnamon-like spice on the nose. The sip is wide and mouth-filling, but curiously light on the roast. Eschews sharper dark malt for beefy caramel midtones and a hit of cola.
