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 you’ll enjoy it’s subtle hints of cherry-smoked malt.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2011 EDIT: 2011 vintage: big changes this year, but no less outstanding. Instead of molasses, I’m getting big cherry in the middle. Rest is the same though, big in the mouth, beautiful in the glass. what a beer. This is a fantastic beer from one of PQs great micros. Intense coffee and acohol aroma with.hint of molasses. Top notch.

Cirrhosis (1266) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 8, 2011
Extreme dark chocolate brown with a thick skiff floating on top that got replenished with each swirls of the glass. Massive sweet malty aroma, milk chocolate, caramel, some mild spice. Smells so epically good it’s just so heavy and smooth I can’t stop smelling. Yum yum yum…………….taste is also epic!! Thick milk chocolate, and heavy roasted malts hints coffee, dark berry sweetness and a vanilla finish. Flavor is actually kind of simple but sooooooo dam good. I love this beer

Great pour! Comes out thick with its black colour and huge dark foamy brown crown that settles down to light cover. Excellent aromas of sweet caramel, molasses, soft chocolate, light licorice, 50/50 bread, faint spice, smells much better early on. Tasty! Chocolate (lots), plenty of toasted malts, vanilla, notable spice when warmer, touch of heat, vanilla, caramel. Thick, viscous mouth feel, leaves a carpet of coating and a great finish. Started out great then got a bit stale then finished STRONG. Awesome.

750ml Bottle. Thick black pour with a small foamy tan head that doesn’t last long. Rich, sweet aroma has notes of dark chocolate, liquorice, dates, brandy, caramel and raisins. The flavour is very close to the aroma with the chocolate and dark fruits standing out. Thick, creamy mouthfeel with moderate to low carbonation and a lingering roasty, lightly bitter finish with a hint of warmth from the alcohol. This is definitely in the dessert beer category, rich and sweet, and also very good.

Yeah, it’s probably a five for appearance - a great dark beige head and an amber-black body. The aroma is paint thinner, syrup, leather and cherry. Flavour is roasted and nearly burnt barley backed up by a syrupy malt finish. This stuff was seriously expensive and for the price I paid, it should have been waaaay better. As it stands, it just tastes like a cheap porter.

Excellent. 750 ml for dessert. Rich and full bodied. I mean really full bodied for the style. Nose has a bit too much alcohol for my liking, but he dark fruit and faint whiffs of chocolate permeate the ethanol. Immediate chocolate with a silky smoothness. Round off with a moderate roast and dark fruit finish. Could easily be confused as an Imperial Stout. A real finesse beer. A bit going on, but not quite as complex as the true greats of the Imperial Stout world, but easily the best baltic porter iI have ever had. Classy in every sense of the world. Sir, I challenge you to a duel!

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2013 pours jet black with a creamy brown head, excellent retention and lacing. sweet dark roasted malts all over, real semi-sweet dark chocolate, some smoke, caramelized and burnt figs and plums with grassy hops that support superbly the beer. moderate carbonation, medium body - oily, sticky but not cloying. excellent!

Bottle (from Autumn 2010) via a trade with savvy1982. Black pour with a thick tan head that slowly fades. Aromas are smokey, with a huge milk chocolate note. Further notes of raisins and leather. Flavors of raisins, dark fruits, cocoa, tobacco, smokey with a huge dark chocolate presence. Excellent beer.

Bottle from glouglouglouburrrrrp. Dry doughy cocoa with a big molasses and dark chocolate kick. Sweet syrupy dark chocolate cut nicely by bitter cocoa and tangy plum skins. Pretty good.
