It’s getting dark. You should’ve found an open campsite three lakes back, but here you are canoeing at the lake’s edge, the water now black below you. Luckily the wind has died down and the stars have come out and you briefly wonder why you don’t normally travel at night. Our Night Trekker Baltic Porter sums up this experience with its depth and complexity. Starting out sweet but quickly being dominated by hints of coffee, dark fruits, and caramel. Its smooth drinkability will surprise you, just like your unexpected traverse into the night.
Brewer’s Notes: Richly malty sweetness with a complex blend of deep malt, dried fruit esters, and alcohol. Smooth drinkability, starts off sweet then dominated by big hints of roasted coffee followed by notes of toffee, nutty and molasses complexity which stops short of burnt.
