A Note on This Beer
Today’s Grande Cuvée Porter Baltique Édition Spéciale tastes even fancier than its name suggests. Forget feeling intimidated though -- in no time flat, you’ll be ready to drop some serious craft knowledge about why this #15 BA-Ranked Baltic Porter in the World is so revered.
Read on and prepare to transform your next gathering into a white tablecloth soiree!
Grande Cuvée: This particular blend is one of the brewery’s finest offerings. Quebec’s Les Trois Mousquetaires elevates their Best Porter at the World Beer Awards to a higher class of elegance by aging it for 5 months in both Bourbon and Brandy Barrels! How’s that for a high class aperitif?
Porter Baltique: OK, this one’s pretty easy. Baltic Porter! It’s a roasty, deep, and incredibly smooth base to show off those special barrel flavors.
Édition Spéciale: Very few bottles were brewed of this limited edition, so save it for a truly special occasion. Better call up your mom to borrow her fine china and goblets — your plastic dinnerware won’t cut it this time.
Beyond all the fanciness of the name, what truly makes this brew spéciale is its dark symphony of flavors. Velvety hints of cocoa nibs, plums, vanilla, and booze-soaked wood envelop the palate in a blanket of indulgence. Layers of caramelized pear and tobacco from the Brandy and Bourbon barrels open up on the second sip. This 10% ABV treasure finishes with a dry elegance and a lingering kiss of char.
This beer will impress guests so much, they won’t be able to resist spouting things like “Très magnifique!” even if they don’t speak a lick of French. Get ready to become the classiest dinner party host your friends have ever seen.
