On tap at the Muddy Pig (St. Paul, Minnesota, 20/2/13)
Dark brown with a slightly off-white head. Salt and roast in the aroma. Taste is a bit sweet and a bit bitter. Pretty typical for the style, if not a bit more heavy. Medium-bodied and warm on the tongue. Great for Fulton, but maybe a little underwhelming for Great Lakes. Still, I love Baltic porters, and I’m pretty happy to see more local breweries working with the style.

Pretty dark black. Honey and roaster nuts on the nose. Almonds? Taste is interesting but not too impressive. Tootsie roll is certainly there. Yeah, more nuttiness and falls flat on a rubbery flavor at the finish

AirForceHops (2939) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 27, 2013
Draft at GLBC. Dark brown pour with thin tan head, some lace. Nose is mostly malt, maybe hints of dark fruit. Flavor is all malt driven with roasted barley. Hints of dark fruits, brown sugar, charred toast. Body is on the flimsy side. Not really displaying big Baltic porter notes, more like a standard porter. Maybe beefing up the body would really improve this. Still alright drinker.

Bacterial (1374) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 16, 2013
Draft at Stouts Pub. Dark brown pour with a slight white head, some lacing here. Roasted malt nose, full body and nice balance between some subtle smoked malt and robust hop profile, some bitterness in the finish. Well done.

On tap at a beer festival - high quality brew with the normal style attributes you’d expect in a baltic.

Fruity malty aroma. Dark opaque brown color. Toast, caramel, dark fruity taste. Finished very smooth.

JaBier (4730) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Pint at Great Lakes on 1/21/13. Dark brown pour with a thick beige head. Malty and chocolatey nose with some roasted malt. Malty and chocolatey flavor with a roasty coffee finish.

BVery (5935) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Tap. Collaboration beer between Great Lakes and Fulton - available on tap in the Mpls market now. Bartender says it was brewed at Great Lakes. Dark brown pour, almost black, with a creamy tan head. Roasty and sweet, smooth palate that isn’t too dense. Pretty solid.
