The already oily and intense Öö from Pohjala gets Barral Aged treatmens with this version . The Öö XO was stored for several months in cognac barrels. The Imperial Baltic Porter is deep black in color and smells wonderfully of dark fruits, cognac and espresso. Once you sip it - a mixture of molasses, dark chocolate, balanced tannins and dried fruit are all present. Insanely complex and a wonderful beer.

The Estonian brewery Pohjala (translated: Nordic Territory) has been strong in the craft beer scene since its founding in 2012. Undoubtedly you will find in the portfolio of four childhood friends currently the most exciting beers worldwide. No combination is too absurd and no experiment too daring. The concept worked and success did not take long. Pohjala has sparked a boom in craft beer in thier homeland and the rapidly growing market will hopefully bring us many more exciting creations.
