COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Unlike typical porters, our Baltic Porter is brewed in the traditional style as a bottom-fermenting lager. The result is a luxuriously round, but robust, black beer with a mild bitterness. A special blend of roasted malts provides this porter with flavors and aromas of chocolate and coffee, and you’ll enjoy it’s subtle hints of cherry-smoked malt.

Oh my word oh my word oh my word. This is so many wonderful things all at once. Pours inky black, plus nice head. Aromas are - where to start? Black cherry? Coffee? Chocolate? Bacon? Smoke? Leather? Blackberries? All that in one beer? Yes, and more - and just flat out delicious. Warming alcohol is an exclamation point. A treat.

Had this many times but apparently never rated it. Anyway, 750 ml bottled in January of 2013. Appearance is black with creamy head. Aroma is coffee, brown sugar, and roasted malts. Taste is bitter roast, followed by sweet coffee, dark chocolate, and a bit of sweet port like character. Finishes medium bitter, with a touch of heat. This was the first Baltic potter that I tried when I was first getting into craft beer. It’s a great example of the style, and ages really well.

750ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Deep dark brown color. Tiny to almost no head. Stays as a ring. Alcohol, sweet, malty, roast, mild hops in aroma. Sweet, malty, nutty, roast in taste. Sweet roasted malt in aftertaste. So mellow and balanced. Fantastic brew. Smooth mouthfeel.

750ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut!
Absolutely classic baltic porter aroma. Dark, brief tan head. Lovely full sweetish palate. Big bold roast, touch of tobacco, gentle smokiness. So mellow. reminds me of the 12-month baltic porter from our locals. Finish has lovely hops, dry and old, and tobacco-ey. Superb baltic porter, absolutely nailed the style.

suurjuust (2236) - ESTONIA - JAN 15, 2016
Dark brown beer, small tan head. Nose is chocolate, smooth roast, hops, vanilla. Flavor fruity, dried plums, some vanilla and chocolate. Finish is smoke and leather, fruity sweetness, roast, hops. Lingering tobacco notes and something that comes off as fruity freshness. Layered and balanced, magnificent.

Ma première porter baltique, mais assurément pas ma dernière. À l’oeil, une robe noire opaque. Sa mousse brunâtre et persistante laisse un peu de dentelle sur mon verre. J’y détecte des arômes chocolatés, du malt mais aussi un petit penchant fumé. Après la première gorgée, je distingue du chocolat mais aussi un goût de cerise noire et de torréfaction. Aussi, une légère amertume. La texture est sirupeuse à souhait. Très agréable, c’est un retournez-y.

bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Opaque black/brown, beige head cover, tiny lace dots. Taste is lightly smoked roasted malt that moves easily through a very lightly fizzed swallow to some chocolate and dark dried fruit. Light bitterness rounds things out. A big, robust brew. Sipping is the only way I can drink more than 4-6 ozs.

Big bottle in a taster. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of darker malts with dark fruits, roast, and chocolate plus light bitterness and some bread. Flavor the same but all sort of watery. Average texture. Not a bad beer, but not good for a Baltic porter.

Super bière a deguster sur le bord du feux avec un bon roman par une journée froide d’hiver! Ou avec une bonne soupe a l’oignon!! La bière est legerement sucré avec une bonne presence de café noir.

Draught at Boswell. Rich dark roasted flavors, lingering brown sugar, tobacco and smokey notes, silky body. A bit too boozy, but an interesting strong porter which oscillates between sweet and smokey.
