Oakshire Collaborative Evil 2010
From Oakshire Brewing – This year, the brewers have agreed to create an Imperial or Baltic Porter. This style is characterized by big rich malt and roast character (or not in the case of Baltic) and higher alcohol content than other styles of Porter. This year’s style will lend itself to complex beers with rich chocolate and coffee notes, and of course, a little bit of evil. Oakshire Brewing’s version, an Imperial Porter brewed with Black Strap Molasses and dark Brown Sugar, will be released in Oregon after Monday August 9th.
