Late in the 18th century Britain’s great brewing families were working hard to break into new markets. For the Baltic Sea ports they created an export version of the traditional British Porter. Styled like an IPA to preserve them for the voyage, those profound Baltic Porters served to ward off the chill winds of that northern sea. That said, we weren’t satisfied with the Baltic Porter’s traditionally subtle hint of black licorice. This ale features a blend of whole licorice root and star anise to create an uncommon addition to that traditional export Porter’s hearty character.

jmgreenuk (6192) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUL 1, 2015
Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured almost black with a frothy light tan head. The aroma is sweet roasty malt, light molasses. The flavour is moderate sweet with a rich, almost creamy, smoky malt, light liquorice palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Plenty going on and very refreshing even in the Asian heat.
