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.

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.

Scopey (9998) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2015
Bottle shared in NH. It pours deep brown with a small beige head. The nose is earthy, restrained smoke, charred wood and liquorice. The taste is bitter - sweet, smooth smoke, roasted malt, liquorice, dark fruit and fruit cake with a dry, roasty finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. A bit tamer than I expected. Smooth and easy-going. Not bad.

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 (3125) - 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.
