That jet-black pour had me from the start, and the gorgeous espresso-coloured crema just added to the excitement – with an entrance like that, this was never going to fail. Thick, syrupy, chocolatey, with a slight coffee edge, but just the right level of fizz to stop this from being overpoweringly rich. The bitter/sweet balance is nigh-on perfect here, and with no forced flavours this is a down-the-line porter that gets everything right. A classy heavyweight from Verdant, and an instant top 10 for me. Shame it'll probably be sold out by the time I get to restocking.

Really solid Baltic Porter – dark and roasty with the crisp finish typical of the style.

This Porter is lovingly brewed by the fantastic Verdant.
This tasty brew comes in a 440ml can and is 10.2% ABV.
We teamed up with the mighty Põhjala for a very special collaboration project inspired by our proximity to sea – both here in Penryn and over in Põhjala’s home, and Estonian capital, Tallinn. We adopted beer styles synonymous with one another, with Põhjala taking on the eponymous NEDIPA, and us turning our hands to the lesser-spotted Baltic Porter.
Boasting a rich and slick mouthfeel, the beer pours an impenetrable shade of black, with a rich mahogany head that bubbles with indulgent aromas of dark chocolate and fresh coffee at the surface. Bright flavours of bramble berries and sour cherries follow before crashing against those rich cocoa notes. Finally a robust bitter finish revives the palate like cold sea spray splashing against your face… you can almost hear the gulls as you wash back ashore. A beer perfect for the recent cold snaps. One to certainly be savoured and perfect for sharing inside a flavour-packed bubble thanks to its hardy ABV
