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.

Acid303 (398) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - FEB 3, 2013
65cl bottle. Dark brown colour (and redish tones) with a medium vanilla head, looks ok. Aroma is mostly roasted malts with a hint of smoke. Regarding taste, the smoke is more evident at beginning, but after a few minutes looks similar to coffe (subtle though). Medium body and average carbonation. Overall it is so smooth and pleasant, and one forgets about the alcohol, which is certainly low for a beer like this. Nice brew.

Imaena (1701) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Bomber. This is a nice smoky porter that is not so intense that you smell like bacon for the remainder of the day. Saturday morning breakfast beer.

zimbo (483) - SCOTLAND - JAN 7, 2013
Ridiculously huge bubbly light tan head. Beechwood fishy quality. Fizzy fuzziness. Needs better definition but nice enough despite it being a shade on the indefinite side

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 5, 2013
In bottle at Craig’s. Pours a very dark brown colour with a decent light tan head. Aroma of Beechwood smoked malt, chocolate, Weetabix and alcohol. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation, light CO2 prickle and a foamy mouth-feel.

Black with beige head. Rather thin and lacking smoke. Still has nice caramel mocca taste with roasty malts
