Married To The Sea

GERMAN PORTER

We belong together. A lager inspired by the porters made in Germany around the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

History

The London Porter had rapidly gained popularity across the Continent and German brewers desired their own version of the beer unique to German brewing traditions. The beer is brewed in accordance to the Beer Purity Law, the Reinheitsgebot, meaning it could only use malted barley, hops, yeast, and water. The Pilsner malt still shines through all the de-husked black malt, giving it a lot of colour, some chocolate and coffee notes without being astringent. The lager yeast gives the beer a cleaner less fruity aroma than it’s English counterpart. The beer is more similar to a Schwarzbier (black lager) than an English Porter.

Tasting Notes

A black beer with deep copper hues and a thick tan head. The aromas boast sweetened coffee, chicory, milk chocolate, and a light bready character. The flavour is a clean medium roast coffee, with hints of caramel, cocoa nibs, and malt chocolate. The mouthfeel is a medium body and a semi-sweet finish.
