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.

TEJA (1372) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2010
Bottle at Stockholm Beer and whisky festival 2010. Short head. Dark red-brown color. Some smoke in the aroma but not much for a smoke porter. The taste is also smoky with a small to medium bitterness. The smoke is a litle thin in the taste for it to be a real good smoke beer. Medium body.

dionysus (1448) - Arizona, USA - OCT 1, 2010
Bottle pours deep brown with a khaki head. Aroma is smoked/salted ham, roast malt, chocolate, and plum. Flavor shows the same with some additional vanilla bean sweetness being dried up by the roasted, almost ashy finish. Overall body is relatively light and feels extremely thin at points.

3fourths (8238) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 1, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2010 draft. soy, smoked malt, burnt rubber and burnt corn in the nose. the roast is overly astringent, the crispness and carbonation translate as something like soda water/calcite/chalk. oily and resinous finish. leaves a light lactic acidity in the mouth, like whole milk.

drowland (6169) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - OCT 1, 2010
9/25/10. On tap. Black pour, not much head. Mild metallica aroma with some creamy chocolate. Sweet chocolate flavor with a dash of sour and roast. Not bad.

scoth (528) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 29, 2010
Pours inky chestnut brown, nearly opaque, with a thin khaki head, very fine clinging lacing. Deep, rich aroma of hickory smoke, with chocolate, plum, toast, and some subtle fruity esters. Medium-thin body, smooth and creamy, but a little watery. Some initial sweetness, not particularly bitter. Very drinkable. A fantastic smoky presence, but it could stand to be a little thicker and stronger.

Really smoked aroma. A lot of BBQ aroma. Really smoky flavor. The smoke taste does fade to a little sweetness as it warms.

Bottle. Pours dark, completely opaque blackish brown sporting a decently full sheet of tan froth atop. Nose was more baltic porter than it was smokey..crisp lager-yeast tones among some deep roasted malts and chocolate with some soft smokiness laid atop. Flavors are malty with just a slightly chewy smokiness behind them..it’s noticeable for sure, but certainly not powerfully smokey by any means. Body has a somewhat creamy nature to it though I suppose it could probably be a bit thicker and less wet feeling at the forefront. Smokiness and roasted malts and chocolate combine softly but cohesively I reckon.

Bomber bottled Aug 06 10. What a strange concept, I love the idea of a Bamberg smoked malt and roast porter notes, not so sure about the lagering though. Pours a darker chestnut color with a frothy sticky light tan head. Aroma is nice, very baltic porter-ish, round and fruity, dry and ashy, smooth and oily, little bit of smoke. Flavor at first has a nice hammy bamberg kick, some fruity character follows, fairly dry, hard dark chocolate roasty finish with some lingering acidity. I wish the smoked taste was more prevalent or none at all. These two almost work together, but would probably be better as a regular smoked porter or just a baltic porter. Medium bodied, lighter feeling, watery, fizzy carbonation, fairly dry finish.

Thanks walter! Dark brown pour, light brown head. Aroma of ham, roasted malt, chocolate, red wine notes. Flavor is smoke, ham, thin bodied, tartness. Pretty nice brew.
