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.

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.

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.

Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. Dark brown pour with a delightful tan head. Taste of roasted malts, coco, alcohol, and oak. Medium body, medium carbonation.

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.

neuromatt (1130) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2013
On tap at Churchkey in Washington DC, served in a snifter. ours black with a moderate frothy tan head that remains and leaves lots of lace. The nose has fresh malts and grains, along with roasted coffee and earth. The flavour is moderately sweet with roasty malts and notes of chocolate, coffee and vanilla. This is balanced with piney hops that grow towards a long, hoppy roasty finish. On the palate, it is medium in body with a milky texture and average carbonation. Overall, this is a very nice imperial porter. Not quite as complex as an imperial stout, but it is nonetheless appropriate to the style. 2012-06-09

Why is it that 1/3 of the Cigar City beers I have are infected? Sour bretty porter is weird and not in a good way. SIGGGHHH. Lost Abbey, Captain Lawrence, and Cigar City should get together and whatever they have in common stop doing that.

Opaque dark brown beer, residual tan head. Crispy palate, semi dry. Rich dark malts, a little coffee and molasses. Dry finish with a trace of dried fruits. Okay beer but it’s malty one dimensional.
