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.

This is my perfect beer. Pours inky-black with a thin brown lace. Excellent mouthfeel and a medium-heavy body but without any syrupy consistency. Tastes of chocolate, cherries, brandy, almonds, sherry, molasses and strawberries, with a sweet though not cloying aftertaste. Well-balanced sweetness that doesnít feel sugary or overpowering. Good medium-light fizziness, not overcarbonated, and a smooth mouthfeel. Fantastic beer, one of the best porters in the world!

Pour is jet black with a reddish cap that sticks around for a bit and leaves some light lace. Nose is chocolate, dark cherries, molasses, vanilla, caramel, light coffee, wood and smoke. Taste is unabashedly sweet, yet somehow not heavy, and not at all cloying. Itís all chocolate and cherries and molasses, with a perfect balance of roasted malt bitterness on the finish. Alcohol is there for a bit of warmth, but otherwise so well-masked. Texture is pure velvet. Itís definitely intense, definitely a slow sipper, but it goes down so damn smooth. Epic stuff.

Basically perfect, rich velvety palate, fruity, chocolatey, a touch of coffee. Complex beer that really evokes "baltic porter" rather than just "imperial stout with a different name."

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.

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 (6967) - 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!
