Cigar City Kalevipoeg Baltic Porter is a big beer that is too big. Nice dark pour with a decent head. Aroma is roasty with a hint of chocolate, but faint over all even in a snifter glass. Kalevipoeg’s taste is where it starts to disappoint; the alcohol presence overpowers the malty, roasty, chocolately, coffee flavors one would be looking for in a porter. You just get the alcohol. Some roasted malt flavor did last on my palate, but on the way home. Kalevipoeg Baltic Porter is average at best, but the flavor just isn’t there.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2013 75cl bottle courtesy of Sean at Melody Brewing. Thanks. Split with 77ships and Delirium team. Bottled feb 2012. Couleur brune foncée tirant sur l’acajou, col épais crémeux moka léger. Arôme est assez complexe et loin de ce que l’on attend d’habitude d’une Baltique. Pointe de fumé mais également pas mal de baies rouges et noires sauvages rappelant les pays du nord; myrtilles, baies de genévrier, goji, mûres. Possible pointe de boisé cèdre typique de CCB. Léger épice rappelant le pain d’épices et de Noël, gingerbread et un malté à l’accent chocolaté. Palais est malté avec un léger chocolaté, fruité moyen, rappelant ici aussi les baies rouges. Le tout ressort très bien surtout en fin de bouche. Le profil levure tire aussi vers ce côté lager allemand typique mais avec un alcool bien plus présent. Le tout reste sec, chocolaté voire biscuité, malt pâle, grains et caramel pour un palais restant épais et généreux. L’amertume est très légèrement fruitée et s’immisce péniblement ajoutant un profil une dimension supplémentaire. Sympa mais on s’en retrouve un peu pris au dépourvu de par la complexité d’un style qui se veut souvent plus simple.

madvike (2847) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 24, 2013
Bottle - Pours dark brown with a soapy tan head. Nose is weird and sour with some booze, and some dark fruit. Feels infected--tastes like prunes, raisins, sour grossness, and a bit of a bitter finish. Thin, well-carbonated and soft in the mouth. This is not good.

Super-carbed. It isn’t a baltic porter in the least. I would peg it as a lithuanian brewery trying to do a quad in style.

On tap, sweet aroma and smell. Roasty, great body and pallate. A little caramel on subsequent sips.

TizzleJizzle (626) - Garland, Texas, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. Dark brown pour with a delightful tan head. Taste of roasted malts, coco, alcohol, and oak. Medium body, medium carbonation.

jordinc (104) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Pours black with moderate head that receded quickly. Very sweet and malty with toasted vanilla and oak notes. Needs some more complexity - too one dimensionally sweet.

50belair (2488) - Florida, USA - APR 4, 2013
On tap at Dixie. Velvety malt aromas. Creamy, rich, and somewhat sweet with smooth coco flavored dark malts and hints of caramel and toffee. Some earthy wood and coffee undercurrents. Very complex with a good body and carbonation. I am usually not a fan of this style, but Kalevipoeg is an exception....

Thx! to Sebletitje for sharing! Feb. 2012 Vintage. 75 cl. bottle sampled. Black with brown shades with a creamy smaller white head. Smell is lots of blueberries, lots of berries, some brambleberries as well, light chocolate and fudge, Black Forest pie,… Taste is sweet fudge, malts thick enough to put a spoon in, syrupy, chocolate, some berries as well but lesser, brambleberries and more blueberries,… they must have used an astronomical amount of malts and it must have taken a long time to make this…chocolate, almost light alcohol and almost hint of oak. Very thick esp. for a lager… this beer really coasts the mouth, leaving a layer behind. Probably unlike anything actually brewed in the Baltic’s – great stuff / great dessert beer.
