A New Two Brother's Artisan Ale - Red Eye Baltic Porter
Not to be confused with Two Brothers Cane & Ebel Red Rye, the newest beer in the Artisan ale series from Two Brothers is a Baltic Porter brewed with 100% organic, fair trade coffee. The Brothers describe the end result as a balance of coffee and chocolate flavors with soft and clean finish. Baltic Porters come with a hefty alcohol content and the Red Eye Baltic Porter weighs in at 9.3% ABV. Can't wait to get my hands on a bottle. I'm very curious about how the coffee flavor changes the flavor profile of the porter - does it push the flavor closer to that of a stout, while retaining the lighter, mouthfeel of a porter? Or will the coffee flavor be more unique than the burnt roasted, coffee-like flavors of a stout?
