Pelican Schwarzenfreude Baltic Porter


Brewed by Pelican Pub & Brewery
Pacific City, Oregon USA
Style: Baltic Porter | Ratings: 2 | Winter Seasonal | Alcohol: 7.2%
Schwarzenfruede is a first-ever collaboration brew with the Pelican Pub & Brewery and Gigantic Brewing Company. Founded by former Pelican brewer Ben Love and Van Havig, Gigantic Brewing Company is a new brewery scheduled to open in Portland this Spring. Schwarzenfreude was designed and brewed for the Collaboration Brewers Dinner at the Pelican Pub & Brewery on January 28, 2012. Brewed in the Baltic Porter style, it features a deep, rounded, smooth malt character with cocoa, caramel and browned bread highlights. The rich malt profile is complimented by smooth lager character, a subtle floral hop presence and a clean mellow finish. Robust, rounded and smooth, Schwarzenfreude commands attention but retains a high drinkability.
