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.

750ml bottle thanks to Hopscotch. Big thanks for bringing this absolutely STUNNING beer. I knew little about this brewery and I was just blown away by this beer. Nose is rich with malt, huge fruity notes of plum and raisin with chocolate and caramel. Pours a near black with a small long lasting light tan head. Super clean flavor throughout with an almost fudgelike chocolate note and tons of dark fruit flavor. Finishes nutty. As it warms subtle smoke and leather become apparent. Complex as hell this beer. One of the best lagered beers I have ever had. Absolutely fantastic!

SlovakSniper (3360) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - APR 26, 2010
En bouteille. Liquide presque noir, collet brun foncé bien monté et solide. Au nez, des effluves de malt foncé, du café, du chocolat, de l’alcool, définitivement de la réglisse noire, une touche de fruits séchés et macérés, du sucre brûlé, un peu de fumée. En bouche, même richesse que l’on retrouve dans les arômes. Le départ est doux mais vite complexifié par le goût prédominant du malt rôti. Finale torréfiée de chocolat, de sucre d’orge, de réglisse, de raisin macéré et de petite fumée. Le liquide est assez robuste et sa texture est soyeuse. L’alcool se fait définitivement sentir. En résumé, bière impériale.

750 ml bottle
This has been sitting around for a while since Ughsmash sent me the bottle in a trade. I decided to bring it to share with a few others. It was good enough I might have enjoyed the whole thing alone but why be greedy? Drinking this makes me want to make a trip to the source and try more of their releases.

Aroma / Appearance - Medium chocolate in appearance this had a nice balance to it. Fluid and black it released a combination of ash, smoke, light chocolate, and a sweet smooth base.

Flavor / Palate - Cinnamon, spice, and ash were rounded off by a smoky sweetness. The mouthfeel was simultaneously thick and fluid. The alcohol on this one is masked well and does not really show up until near the final sips. Overall this is a perfect baltic porter and reminds me why I like the style so much.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2010 on tap at Brouhaha brewpub. pours pitch black with a moka head that leaves lots of lacing. lots of chocolate and roasted malts in the aroma. taste is the same, with a nice sweet cherry flavour to precede the hops in the finish. kind of smokey too. thick on the palate, an oily feel to it. this is a great beer during the cold months of the winter. warms you right up!

A deep dark porter with a thick brown head. In aroma, pleasant moka coffee, chocolate, molasses, and dark fruits. In mouth, a smooth porter with a bitter coffee, prunes, oily mouthfeel, dark chocolate, warming alcohol, exceptional porter. L’Autre Oeil edition, probably 2 years old. Tasted Feb. 14, 2010.

TheJester (1958) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 4, 2010
750 mL bottle. (2007 vintage). Almost black, with a ring of beige head. The aroma is dominated by roast, but also has a vinuous quality. The flavour is as good or better than anything I’ve tried in this style: roast, chocolate milk, black coffee, berries, and more fruit as it warms. Not as sweet as some other Baltic porters. The alcohol is not apparent. The body is full and creamy. Excellent beer.

Hard to ask for anything more. Except the palate on the fizzy side, this is by all means the perfect beer. Bold chocolate fruity flavour with a coffee note. Deliciously thick. What a brew.

Bonster (180) - Jersey Shore, New Jersey, USA - FEB 12, 2010
Bomber from a friend during brew session. 2009 GC. Pours with a huge tan head over the deep, black liquid. Inviting caramel, chocolate, and coffee aroma. Lots of sugary molasses with dried fruit flavor. Roasted coffee and chocolate notes.Alcohol barely peeks through. Perfect brew for a cold drizzly day.
