Formerly brewed at Sixpoint Brewery
Brooklyn, New York USA
Style: Smoked | Ratings: 24 | Alcohol: 7.8%
SMP is a Smoked Baltic Porter.
Sixpoint SMP is unique creation from a place like no other in the world - Brooklyn. In our neighborhood, a classic industrial sector, we are constantly reminded of the manufacturing and industry that made Brooklyn famous. I wanted to make a unique beer that combined all of the unique traditions of my favorite beer style... Porter. Like the Baltic countries of Europe, our company resides close to the ocean. And like the industrial revolution in England, Brooklyn is home to the industry of the world’s capital. It was only fitting, therefore, for me to create a unique beer altogether, the Smoked Baltic Porter. Our Smoked Baltic Porter is our most complex beer. The aroma is entirely unique, mostly due to our generous addition of dry hops in the conditioning tank. Beneath the aroma of hops is the flavor of toffee, chocolate, and a slight sharpness from the patent malt. For the discerning enthusiast, note the subtle smoky notes beneath it all... The beer is full-bodied and chewy, hoppy throughout, and finishes with a slight burnt nuttiness from the dark malts. Despite its robust complexity, the beer is very drinkable for its size and strength.
