The Mangrove Jacks Craft Series Baltic Porter is a rich and complex beer that tantalizes the palate. Its deep, roasted aroma leads to layers of coffee, chocolate, and dark fruit flavors, making every sip a delightful experience. The velvety mouthfeel, accompanied by a gentle warmth, is a testament to its Baltic origins, setting it apart from traditional porters. With a moderate to high alcohol content, its robustness is elegantly tempered by a subtle sweetness from the malt, resulting in a beautifully balanced profile. All in all, the Mangrove Jack’s Craft Series Baltic Porter is a must-try for those seeking a deep, luxurious beer that resonates with tradition and craftsmanship.
Additional Ingredients Required:
For fermentation you will also require 1kg of dextrose. As an alternative to dextrose consider Liquid Brewing Sugar to reduce the sweet finish and improve the mouthfeel of your brew. Liquid Malt Extract will give you a smoother mouthfeel, more body and greater richness in the malt character – we would suggest using 1.5kg of Dark Liquid Malt Extract or 1.5kg of Amber Liquid Malt Extract.
