COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Grade is in. It’s built on the backbone of a rich, cold-fermented baltic porter made popular in countries bordering the Baltic Sea. Similar to an imperial porter but distinctly different, the baltic porter style is heralded for being full-bodied, roasty and smooth, with overtones of toffee, coffee, caramel, chocolate and dark fruit. We take it one step further and hammer it home with the bold, sweet flavors of maple syrup and a touch of fenugreek, placing it in a different, experimental class entirely. The Grade is not your average baltic porter, and that’s A-OK in our book.

Draft at the source. Pours almost black with a beige head. Aroma of maple syrup. Taste is largely maple syrup, with notes of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Finish is sweet and syrupy. Too much maple syrup, cannot really tell this is a Baltic Porter.

750 ml bottle from Adam and the RS. Aroma is really maple forward with a doughy "French Toast" hint. The flavor is so forward with said maple. It is almost all maple notes. Syrupy texture. It amazes me on the vast difference between certain beers from this brewery. So great, so really, really not.

750 bottle split by 2 @ "D. & E. Tasting #3". Thanks to David! Bottled 30 AUG 2016. Baltic Porter with maple syrup & puzzlingly fenugreek. Black, very thick solid mocha head. Maple is massive in the nose, even now with nearly one year age it still feels like unfermented raw maple syrup sludge, mocha, sugar, chocolate & yes you get some fenugreek. Taste is same massive raw maple syrup goop, really extreme quantity of maple syrup, sweet, candy, cacao, chocolate, sugar,… Body is the same,… Finish is huge massively lingering fenugreek, feels super weird at first, puzzling addition but I got into it. A bit too odd for the amount we did but good stuff for sure. Body is raw maple syrup & low chocolate candy.
