Along with the legend of Art Nouveau Baltic Porter is one of the legacies of the turn of the 20th century, which still delights us a century later. Back in the day, this beer style was so popular that elegant ladies and gentlemen enjoyed it in special porter bars. We have enhanced this classic porter brewed in Valmiermuiža and dedicated to Riga with another, no less Latvian flavour – blackcurrants grown in Latvian gardens.

Poured into a glass, this silky porter is very dark, reflecting the brown hue of black coffee against the light. The aroma is that of rye bread infused with dried fruit, enhanced a moment later by bitter roasted coffee, very dark chocolate and blackcurrant notes. Initially the flavour is that of a sweet pudding, rich in dried fruit and rum, topped off by juicy, quaintly bitter blackcurrants. Sip it to savour its silky mouthfeel and aftertaste defined by the balanced and warming interplay of coffee and blackcurrant.
