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.

Roasted chocolate with burnt caramel notes. Deep mahagony with small head. Boozy, caramelly flavor with high alcohol heat on the finish. Thin body and a slickness. Very boozy porter; tastes as those a fair amount of bourbon was added.
