Vistula by Altitude Beer Co. in British Columbia, Canada

About Vistula by Altitude Beer Co.

Vistula Baltic Porter, is named after the Wistula River, or Wisła, in Polish; which is the longest running river in Poland starting south in the Carpathian mountains and flowing through several major cities including Kraków and Warsawa until it finally drains into the Baltic Sea near Gdansk.

This Baltic Porter is malt forward with notes of chocolate, slight coffee, rich caramels and a hint of smoked oak. The hops contribute a clean bitterness, floral notes and a slight spiciness. Traditionally this beer is lager fermented, but Altitude Beer Co. opted for an isolated strain of Kviek. This beer pours a deep, ruby red to almost black with a persistent tan coloured head.
