Black Widow—tasting notes
Black Widow is a collab between Spanish brewery Laugar and Polish brewery Browar Stu Mostów. It is a Baltic Porter a typical Polish style. Aroma in intense, with anise on top and spices, pepper. Taste is sweet, with lots of anise and a balsamic character.
Baltic Porter mixes the malt flavors of English Porters with the restrained roast of German style smoked beer, and adds a higher ABV. It usually has complex aroma and flavour profiles with caramel, chocolate and/or fruits, with no sourness at all. Taste has a roasted touch and a clean lager character, but is much less roasted than an Imperial Stout.
