For our six pack of newly discovered lifeforms, we ventured into the unknown with a few of our most inspiring international brewer friends and found all kinds of creepy-crawlies and curious organisms. From a golden ale to a sour pilsner, together we’re pushing the frontiers of flavor beyond our earthly senses. Try them all! Here are the others: No. 1, No. 2, No. 3, No. 4, No. 6.
It’s a Salt Licorice Imperial Baltic Porter! All those things. We worked with our friends from the Estonian brewery Põhjala on this one. They are known for their solid, strong, dark beers. Brewing together we wanted to combine the best of the Netherlands and the Baltic states so we added licorice root to a Baltic porter. Creating a real Dutch zoute drop flavor in the bottom fermented dark beer. A Baltic porter is usually high in alcohol, sweet and robust, so we added some extra molasses syrup to create a more mineral saltiness for this licorice-like beer.
