Pours pitch black with a large tan head. Smells a bit smoky, a bit sweet, and of raisins and figs. Taste follows the nose almost perfectly: smoke, sweetness, raisins, and dates. Medium-to-full bodied with a smooth texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Cigar City Kalevipoeg Baltic Porter finishes a touch smoky with some candied dark fruit sweetness.

Black with good, creamy, brown head / Rich nose of dark fruit, musty closet, chocolate and tobacco / Full body, thick, creamy, and smooth, moderately sweet, malty but with good balance, alcohol mostly masked, and fine, bitter and sweet finish / Big flavors of prunes, dates, licorice, bittersweet chocolate, dark roast coffee, tobacco, and cream / Easily the best Baltic that I’ve had.

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.

Bottle at Savor. Pours very dark, aroma is of coffee. Flavor is deep and chocolatey with coffee notes. Very nice beer, wish it was available in DC.

Pours a dark mystic pitch black. Nose is sweet chocolate and coffee with a small hint of alcohol. Taste is full of flavor, espresso, dark roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Finish is dry, sweet and somewhat short. Skip the dessert and have a bottle instead. Great Baltic Porter, bravo CCB ! Quaff Score 9 / 10

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2015 Shared from a 750 bottle at the Royale gathering last night into a snifter, thanks Chris! It poured an opaque dark brown color. The thin tan head had a reddish tint around the edges, somewhat lasting with just a little lace, very unusual appearance. Somehow simultaneously smooth-and-creamy but dry-and-roasty, with some citric tartness. Medium body, low carbonation, lingering toasty aftertaste. Pretty damn cool.

750mL bottle pours deep dark mahogany with lasting tall light mocha head. The aroma offers up some musty somewhat earthy maltiness, blueberry and prune fruit esters and then rolling into spicy black licorice. The is pure “homer” goodness with a firm level of yum. I get some roasted malts and spicy black licorice slipping into earthiness, chocolate and a brief flash of burnt malts. This is tasty rich Baltic Porter that murmurs up sweet dark fruity esters amid spicy black licorice into the finish.

750ml bottle via trade. Been waiting to drink this one for a little while now. Served into a pint glass. Pours oily black with a decent tan head. The aroma is packed with roasted malts, rasin, mollasses, liqorice, and a warming alcohol note. Here we go......the flavor is down right fantastic! Super smooth and wonderful. Roasted malts, subdued hops, chocolate, and some vanilla. The alcohol is completly hidden and this goes down way too smooth. Super stoked that I even got to drink this, woooo!

Great pour, balanced notes of chocolate. Smooth and drinkable for the abv. A fantastic porter which provides great flavor with no bitterness
