COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep like the Baltic Sea and as massive as the Swedish ship Kronan sunk in its icy waters, our Baltic Porter greets you with a frothy tan head and rich malty aroma with notes of chocolate, caramel, dark fruit and toasted marshmallow. As its garnet color mesmerizes, the rich flavors engulf the senses. Made with bottom fermenting lager yeast, Kronan the Barbarian is as rich and strong as an Austrian actor but with more depth.

mcberko (8430) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 2, 2015
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a black a deep dark mahogany / brown with a small tan head. Nose is heavy on the dark fruits, vanilla and slight cocoa. Flavour is on the sweet side, with lots of dark fruits and caramel. A little too sweet for me, but it’s quite well-balanced. Good.
