Fall is failing, although you couldn’t tell by the current weather, and Winter is fast approaching. With this change comes a new Eventide seasonal: Kattegat Baltic Porter.

In keeping with our brand focus, we are introducing a traditional and approachable style that many have not yet had the chance to sample or appreciate. Much like the Kattegat, this beer will open an avenue previously unknown or rarely tread by the average beer drinker. We’ve employed this strategy in the past with our Kölsch Style Ale, and we plan to continue this “bridge to craft” approach with future offerings.

The beer itself is a Baltic Porter. This style, unlike its better know cousin the Robust Porter, doesn’t have the deep roasted, burnt notes, noticeable hops, and prevalent esters. Our Baltic Porter will have a clean profile with flavors reminiscent of rich, dark sugar, vinous and herbal notes, some dark fruit, and just enough dark chocolate and coffee to bring everything together. We are very excited to present our new interpretation of this old style to you, and we look forward to raising a glass with you soon.
