3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Dark color, almost black, small beige head. Clean, dryish, but with good body strength, mildly roasted malts, ordinary bitterness, some bottom fermentation esters.
Possibly brewed to fit the tradition, but classic Baltic Porter is not too exciting, and so this one.

On tap at St Augustine’s, pours black with a reddish tinge and a small tan head. Aroma brings out notes of vanilla, some roast, and cocoa. Flavour is similar but less pronounced and complex, with roast and a touch of vanilla. Not overly interesting. Medium bodied and unflawed, but fairly boring.

2013-05-31. Black body with a modest tan head. 4+ Aroma of dry roasty malt, sweeter dark malt undertones. Flavour is relatively dry, dusty malt, light roast. Much drier than expected from a Baltic porter. Average bodied palate is a bit light , modest carbonation. Bit light for the style. Enjoyable but not a great example of a Baltic porter. Pretty decent.
