Barrel-Aged Coal Train (2015) | Ploughshare Brewing Co
Style: Porter - Baltic
Out of Production
Description: This massive wallop of a Baltic Porter is brewed with a lot of hard work, and a 14-hour triple-decoction rest! Now that's not something you see every day! And then... we aged it in whiskey barrels! Like the long coal trains of Nebraska, this brew takes a long while to put together and a long time to enjoy. The double sense of the name (Coltrane) reminds us of the jazz artist’s four-disk collaboration with Miles Davis in 1956, the titles of which describe the decoction method used in brewing this elegant beer: “Cookin’, Relaxin’, Workin’, Steamin’.” Coal Train is a beer to be savored – like fine jazz.
