I like the Burial Beer Co, beers so while I was shopping at Pop the Top Bottle Shop I picked up Burial Beer Co. Ulfberht Baltic Porter with Juniper, 7.8%, brewed with German and British malts, then fermented with Juniper, and traditionally lagers. Ulfberht Baltic Porter pours a jet black oil color with a one and a quarter finger beige head that does leave behind some spotty lacing with aromas of Chocolate sweetness and roasted malts with a faint berry note. The taste is not to far off form the nose of Ulfberht Baltic Porter, there is the roasted sweet chocolate flavor with a faint minty beery on the back of the tongue that comes to a nice sweet roasted finish with an chocolate juniper berry aftertaste with a medium/full. This hits the make on how I feel about Burial Beers, Burial Beer Co. Ulfberht Baltic Porter with Juniper is definitely a A+. I found it to be just the right mouthfeel and well brewed and balanced Baltic Porter, one that highly recommend and one will be back too. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
I’ve not had much from Catawba Brewing Co, but I’ve heard good things about them. This Catawba Brewing Co. Deep State Baltic Porter, 7.2% ABV which came via Brewpublik is one of a very few I’ve had. Deep State Baltic Porter pours a deep mahogany brown with light edges and a two finger beige head that falls quickly into itself and then into a little beige halo that wafts sweet roasted malts with a lightness of molasses notes to you with flavors of sweet rich roasted malts with a lightness and slight molasses raisin, toffee and a faint fig note that finishes smoothly with a slight bitter molasses like note and with an aftertaste of a roasted and a semi-sweet bitter note, and a light almost medium mouthfeel. I wasn’t expecting Deep State Baltic Porter to be as light as it was which is good, it’s an easier to drink Baltic Porter, it along the lines of a black lager. But some of the initial flavors feel a bit flat but as a whole, this beer is not bad, I say a B here. I would’ve like to have more roast and sweetness but not too much. But that is my only complaint towards Catawba Brewing Co. Deep State Baltic Porter and I would recommend this and would have this again. Cheers Please enjoy responsibly!
