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.

Bottle @ SBWF 2010. Brown-black with light, light-brown head. Smoke, malt and some light sweetness in the nose. Light carbonation. Rather dry and medium bitter. Taste is roasted malts, more smoke and some caramel. As dry porters go, I thought this was really good.

riversideAK (5734) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - OCT 3, 2010
Light smoke on top of a mostly roasty malt base. Light leathery notes and a hint of chocolate as well. Pours dark brownish red, almost black, nice lasting tan head. The flavor is mostly roasty, a hint of chocolate, and nice light smoke in the finish. Soft leather and wood flavors. Very nice smooth mouth feel and extremely drinkable. Love the flavor and balance in this one.

TEJA (1525) - 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 (1454) - 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 (8467) - 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 (6596) - 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 (576) - 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.
