Don’t the let name confuse you. This Baltic porter – a style borrowing from Russian Imperial Stouts and Brown Porters – is rich and complex and yeah, it’s a lager, not a stout. This beer took gold at the 2015 World Expo of Beer! We named ours after Faust, the literary character who traded his soul to the Devil to obtain knowledge and wealth. We made a similar deal to give this rich dark lager the devilishly roasty character it enjoys. The Faustian Stout combines malty sweetness with the aroma of dark, dried fruit, licorice, toffee, and caramel notes. With its higher abv and smooth finish this beer makes a great sipper.
