COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Smoked Baltic Porter is the sultry sister of a storied style. Brewed with traditional German malts and hops, this dark lager gets its special twist from a hefty addition of Bamberg smoked malt. This smoldering, medium-bodied lager is sure to please.


First Batch: 6.2% ABV

Last brewed in 2011, discontinued in 2012.

Marrón oscura. Coca cola poca espuma. Aroma muy rico. Café. Fruta roja. Caramelo. Promete. Pero falla en boca. Floja pese al alcohol. Sabor agradable pero escasa fuerza. Plana. Sin carbonatacion. Sin caracter.

tectactoe (3122) - Michigan, USA - DEC 25, 2014
Bottle: 2011 vintage. Deep brown pour, fully black in the glass. Foamy light-beige head skims to a bubbly film & collar quickly. Aroma contains mild smoke, light char, sweet hickory, roasted malts, faint chocolate, & a hint of caramel. Taste has lots of dark prune, currant, & some dark sweetness to it. Light roast, smoke element is very soft with a faint metallic twinge & a touch of tartness in the finish. A little bit of sweet chocolate syrup, too. Medium bodied. Hoped for more.

"this one followed the Schlenkera line-up, which perhaps was not fair, but whatrya gonna do? I really dig the common malt character of many of GDs maltier beers. it stands out in this beer, which acheived the roasted malty goodness i’ve some to expect really well. notes of chocolate and a hint of smoke, especially relatively speaking. nice dry finish. where it fell short was the baltic part. didn’t get that at all, especially at 6.2%. oh well, a pretty good beer that i was hoping would be great."
