Brewer: Oy Sinebrychoff Ab
Style: Baltic Porter
This inky Finnish porter is jet black and opaque, like cold-brewed coffee or thick chocolate syrup. The caramel-toffee nose and nutty, sweet-and-savory finish are reminiscent of Cherry Coke infused with toasted hazelnuts. The alcohol (7.2 percent) is warming and heady while the charred malts lend scorched-earth flavors that linger well beyond the last sip. Overall, it’s a sugary, burnt, bitter melange that’s greater than the sum of its parts.
