Põhjala Château Noir4742976014778
REGION: Tallinn, EST
SIZE: 330ml / ABV: 12%
A vinous Imperial Baltic Porter aged in 2017/2018 Bordeaux red wine barrels and Pedro Ximenez barrels. Staring off with rich, barrel forward notes of oak, cloves, and vanilla Château Noir then leads you down a moonlit path through your very own vin-yard plucking sweet jammy flavours of blackberry and raisins along the way, with hints of tart cherry and vinous tannins to take in as the beer warms. Finally you are hit with an indulgent finish of dark chocolate and cascara, with faint aromas of jasmine and honeysuckle as the night closes around you.
Founded in Tallinn at the end of 2011, Põhjala is deeply rooted in Estonian heritage and Nordic nature.
