From Wander Brewing in Bellingham Washington comes their “Global Mutt Baltic Porter”. The beer pours an opaque black with a brown head. The aroma consists of cocoa, roasted malts, toffee, earth and anise. The flavour is of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, anise, earth, pine, ash and bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 7% with an IBU of 34. Not the most exciting Baltic Porter I have but a very well crafted one non the less and a great purchase.
Commercial Description: Coffee sourced direct from the farmer in Brazil, fair trade cocoa nibs from the Democratic Republic of Congo, chocolate from Theo’s in Seattle, water from Bellingham, hops from Yakima, and specialty malt from Europe dance together in this BIG Baltic porter…a true Global Mutt.
