COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hand crafted locally to take the chill out of cold winter days, Baltic Porter No. 19 is a rich bold lager with notes of dark chocolate and roasted coffee. A complex brew with a crisp clear finish. We hope you enjoy this winter season, and stay warm with a smooth dark Original No. 19.

Sammy (8405) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2012
Bottle from recent Maine trip. Not totally the style. Black and lacey. Licorice,nuts, yeasty fruit, coffee. Finishes like a Baltic but way too sweet until then.A lot of ideas thrown in to the mash. OK drinkability.

jimhilt (2391) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Pours a one finger light tan head that vanishes leaving no lace. Black color, no highlights, some yeast left in bottle. Very light carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Caramel malt nose and flavor is caramel and chocolate malt. Not enough carbonation. $7.00 for a 500ml bottle from Madden Beverage Saco, Me.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Bottle thanks to Paul at a tasting at Paul’s. Pours a deep brown to black with a very thin white beige head around the edges. A touch of smoke and chocolate and a bit of dry cocoa. Medium bodied, sweet and chocolaty, cocoa, chocolate, warm alcohol, roast. Warming alcohol into a long bitterness on the finish. Nice stuff.

auerbrau (3157) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - JUL 7, 2012
500mL Bottle, purchased at Ron’s Market - Farmington, ME. Bright mineral and flint aroma. Clean and full of minerals at first. Some fresh pils character. Hmmm. There’s an odd balance here. On one hand the lager structure and base malt set up one of the more traditional lager presentations I’ve had from an American brewer. On the other hand the malt flavors are marred by heavy melanoidin-type and roasted malts that makes this taste more like and English stout than any Baltic Porter I’ve known. With some recipe tweaks, this could be cleaned up, but until then it’s odd.

jkwood04 (3798) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 4, 2012
Sampled at the 2012 American Craft Beer Festival. Pours dark, and this is very sweet for a beer of this style. Not bad though.

500 ml. Bottle pour. Pitch black with a light tan head. Nice robust chocolate porter. Very drinkable. Nice complexity.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2012
500ml bottle from Downeast Beverage Co in Portland, ME. Pours a black body with a thin, creamy, brown head that dissipates quickly and leaves a light lacing. Aroma is chocolate, cherry dark fruits, and a light roast. Flavor is similar. Chocolates and a moderate roast with some cherry dark fruits. Finishes dry with a light bitterness and a good amount of chocolates and a moderate roast. Lengthy aftertaste following a smooth, clean, medium body and a medium-light carbonation. Overall, a pretty basic, but decent Baltic Porter. Chocolate, roasts, and some cherry dark fruits is about all that is going on, but this is balanced, clean, and very easy drinking. Nothing special, but enjoyable.
