The Grade is in. It’s built on the backbone of a rich, cold-fermented baltic porter made popular in countries bordering the Baltic Sea. Similar to an imperial porter but distinctly different, the baltic porter style is heralded for being full-bodied, roasty and smooth, with overtones of toffee, coffee, caramel, chocolate and dark fruit. We take it one step further and hammer it home with the bold, sweet flavors of maple syrup and a touch of fenugreek, placing it in a different, experimental class entirely. The Grade is not your average baltic porter, and that’s A-OK in our book.
Maple creamsticks, Gouda with foenegreek, maple mustard brussels sprouts and barbecued brisket, dark chocolate bark with candied maple bacon and sea salt. A gift for teacher.
