Schell’s just posted on their Facebook page that the 2009 Snowstorm will be a Baltic Porter. Dave Berg sent us a few more details about this beer, so we thought we’d share:
OG 17.5 Plato
Beer writer Lew Bryson referred to Baltic Porters as “a trainwreck between a Dopplebock and an Imperial Stout.” If the shoe fits…
Copious amounts of Munich malt coupled with 3 British crystal malts, British Chocolate, and some other stuff, Snowstorm 2009 displays flavor reminiscent of dark fruit, licorice, and chocolate.
Release Date: Nov 1, 2009
With love from your friends at “the website that shall not be named” (?!)
Heh, Ryan’s a lot slower posting now he has a job ;^)
Yeah, I was surprised that I read it on FB for the first time. Figured then that Ryan musta known for at least 3 months!
Nope. Probably a couple of hours. If he didn’t check his email, he still may not know!
Someone at Stubs told me back in May it was going to be a BP. Not sure if he was just guessing or actually knew.
I’m in ski/snowboard season (forget that it’s 80 and humid… I have to work a few months ahead). Busy, busy, busy. I saw the email, but haven’t had a chance to post the details.
Enough excuses Ryan! Next thing you know, you’ll be blaming it on your kid or something…..
Not complaining, but is it just me, or are Baltic Porters coming out of the woodwork?
Sorry, “the website that shall not be named” was my fault. I was thinking of beernews, which can’t be mentioned at beeradvocate.
I’ve been waiting for this one, Dave. I can’t wait….but if I must…
Brian – no worries. I just wondered what might have caused us to be taboo on Beer Advocate.
