by American craft brewers in the early 1990s, spirit and oak
infused beers have become quite popular. Behind maltiness of this
deep brown robust porter, you will find the subtle burnt flavors from
the dark malts and toasted oak. The barrel aging simulation imparts
a vanilla and spicy aroma, oaky smoothness, mellows the hops and a
faint smoky spirit to the finish. It is equally good with dinner or
dessert or simply on its own.
The Oak Spirited Porter contains 6.6 lbs Malt extract, 2.5 lb of milled steeping grain, oak, hops, priming sugar, fining agents and a Wyeast Activator smack pack.
Each Bacchus Batches kit is formulated to produce a specific style of beer. Since the quality and alpha acid in hops vary sometimes significantly from one year to the next or from one bale to the next we adjust the varieties and amounts of hops in Bacchus Batches kit to provide consistent results.
