COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Unlike typical porters, our Baltic Porter is brewed in the traditional style as a bottom-fermenting lager. The result is a luxuriously round, but robust, black beer with a mild bitterness. A special blend of roasted malts provides this porter with flavors and aromas of chocolate and coffee, and youíll enjoy itís subtle hints of cherry-smoked malt.

2011 Vintage. 750ml bottle. Sweet Jesus, this lives up to the hype! Pours black with a one finger mocha coloured head. Smells so damn good! Molasses, big chocolate and cocoa, caramel, light spearmint, butterscotch sauce, light Butter Rum Lifesavers, and some light dark coffee too. Taste wise, itís sweet, medium bodied with caramel, molasses, alcohol, dates, raisin, and light amaretto that heads into some strong dark roast coffee notes, roasty malts, light ash, and a bitter finish that showcases more dark roast coffee. Iíve never had this fresh out of the bottle, so I donít know if itís the age that is helping it out, but this is flat out awesome. This beer makes the world a better place. Iím sure of it! Drive to Quebec right now, and stock up.

sudomorph (910) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2015
2014 bottle. Pours a near black/caramel with a thin, khaki head. Aroma has nice, sweet notes of roast with some brown sugar, caramel, chocolate, and mild spices. Taste is sweet but balances. Medium roast with dark chocolate, caramel, brown sugar. Medium-full body with a low-medium carbonation. Smooth in the mouth with a silky texture. Overall very tasty. Caramel and roast with a smooth texture.

Svesse (6911) - Hšsselby, SWEDEN - DEC 31, 2014
(Bottle, Stockholm Beer Festival, 26 Sep 2014) Dark brown colour with brief, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with dried fruit, raisins, brown sugar and coffee. Malty, fruity taste with notes of caramel, chocolate, coffee, spices, brown sugar and a generous spicy/roasty bitterness in the finish. Full body, with a certain sweetness. Quite complex and slightly fruity porter with lots of things going on. Still in good balance. Lovely beer!

This is a great strong Porter. Itís dark malty, silky smoothness is not overshadowed by the high alcohol content. The taste is chocolate, vanilla, coffee and a slight smoky malt. Thereís a sweet sensation on the palate initially which fades to reveal the hops later. Great example.

Nate (3827) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2014
On tap at the Knick. Rich malt, chocolate, coffee, molasses alcohol vapors. Sweet and musky, a great aroma. Heavy body with medium-light carbonation. Alcohol warming. Dark black opaque with very thin light tan head. Starts and stays sweet, rich with roasted barley, and chocolate. Sweet throughout. Big sweet finish with mild smooth and light bitterness. Sugary lingering after with warming.
