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.

I love this beer.mits from Colorado, it tastes like coffee, chocolate, burning peet, pilsner malts and portor on top of it all. I can find no foults with it.

This is about as close to perfection as beer gets for me. But you’ll have to either enjoy smoked beer or have an open mind to enjoy it. I LOVE smoked beer so I LOVE this. Even my father liked it and he hates anything darker than a lager. But he liked this.

This was picked up as a sample, came in a 22 oz. bottle. I must find more of this. I fell in love with this beer. Poured as dark as Sin and tasted twice as good.

Jesterdeal (1887) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - SEP 7, 2011
Aroma of campfire, oatmeal cookies, and figs. Pours deep brown with a large tan head. Tastes of roast coffee and well-baked cookies. Leaves a wonderful oaty bite in the mouth. Fantastic.

SPDickerman (955) - Texas, USA - NOV 6, 2011
Pours black-ruby red with large fluffy tan head. Smells smoky and roasted, and has hints of chocolate. Taste is primarily smoky, with some sweet chocolate notes underneath. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and a little less than average mouth-carbonation, Great Divide Smoked Baltic Porter finishes with a dry, bitter chocolate sort of after taste.

SanfordBrewer (1391) - Sanford, Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2012
very nearly opaque black mahogany with a sudsy beige head. full body with high carbonation.

aroma: lots of black roasted malt, hardwood smoke, and licorice. the black malt and smoke malt seem to unify and compliment each other very well.

taste: black malt, caramel sweetness, and hints of licorice, raisins, and ash. less intense than the aroma suggests.

Cybercat (3332) - Georgia, USA - NOV 4, 2010
Aroma is strong, smoky and oily with tones of roast coffee and anchovy - odd, but not repulsive. It pours a rich, opaque dark coffee brown with a fairly thick, though not too persistent, tan head. Flavor has tones of quality coffee, unsweet chocolate and malt with hints of licorice and miso and a faint fishy touch. Texture is smooth and quite fizzy, leaving behind a nice tingle.

JDBaker11058 (1274) - Maryland, USA - NOV 20, 2010
Appearance: dark coffee brown with barest hints of dark amber around the edges; almost stout-like, with good beige lacing. Aroma: light chocolate and creamy coffee with hints of sweet brown bread. Taste: dry, bittersweet chocolate; a hint of smoked wood is present but not overpowering; there are some hops to nicely balance the sweet. Finish: dry, mellow, smooth and slightly bitter, with a focus on the chocolate; the lightly tantalizing smoke remains. Notes: Outstanding. This is a rich, smooth dessert-style beer. However, it can also be gulped in delicious mouthfuls. I did not know what to expect with this one, and it was simply great. I love that the smoky elements are clearly in play, but are subtle and complement rather than overpower.

Darkover (1517) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 2, 2010
Dark brown color with a small brown head. Aroma of dark chocolate, roasted malts and coffee. Taste is sweet, medium body, oily feel, average carbonation. Pretty good and drinkable.
