Gordon Strong used a variation of this recipe to win an NHC gold , blending it with a sweet blackberry mead to make a Blackberry Baltic Porter. The base beer is delicious on its own, and is a scaled up version of a Carnegie-style porter that won several medals on its own.
Would you like a smooth-drinking porter with subtle coffee notes layered in between the roasted grain aromas? Then don’t even look at this recipe. If you like your coffee black, your porter robust and your death metal Swedish, then this your beer.
