Abita Bourbon Street Baltic Porter is the latest release in the brewery’s Bourbon Street Series. The baltic porter is 100% aged in bourbon barrels. This beer, or a rendition of it, was once a part of the Abita “Select” Series.
This Baltic Porter is brewed with pale, caramel and roasted malts. It is fermented at cooler temperatures to accentuate the malt flavors, which gives the beer its dark color and smooth, sweet roasted flavor. After fermentation the beer is cold aged for months before bourbon barrel aging begins.
Abita Bourbon Street Baltic Porter is available for a limited time in 22oz bottles. This release follows Abita Bourbon Street Imperial Stout, and Abita Macchiato Espresso Milk Stout. Coming soon: Abita Bourbon Street Maple Pecan.
Style: Porter (Barrel Aged. Bourbon.)
