Põhjanael is an Imperial Baltic Rye Porter by Pühaste. It has lots of cacao and roasted coffee in the aroma, with hints of wood, smoke, rye and caramel. Taste is sweet, with some sour hints, notes of nuts and a alcoholic and warm finish. A powerful Imperial Porter.
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.
