Collaboration with The Brewer’s Art: Catherine’s Crush, Baltic Porter

This traditional Baltic Lager was done with our good friends at The Brewer’s Art in Baltimore, and happened to be the first lager in their history. Brewed during the snow storm on Presidents’ day, this rich dark lager incorporates a wonderfully malty base with a layer of chocolate of and roast, while a touch of oats gives it a hearty body. A dark mahogany pour, with a finger of light brown foam on the top that lasts for a little while but leaves plenty of lacing on the glass. Ruby highlights shine through the beer as you hold it up to the light. Nose is filled with aromas of roasted malt, molasses, plum and just a hint of coffee. The roast is not overpowering with hints of blackstrap molasses and just a little bit of coffee. The earthy hops allow for a supporting bitterness, while the hearty German Lager yeast finishes this beer off sharp and clean. Perfect for the last toast of winter.
