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: SEP 19, 2010 The best I had I yet had in this style, especially that new 9,2% ABV 2010 batch, with a tremendous depth, quite thick and very malty, with notes of brown sugar and toffee, chocolate, coffee, apricots, wood, leather, smoke, tongue-tingling hoppiness, with a lasting dry espresso-like aftertaste. The alchool is surprisingly hidden in the taste (although it is quite boozy) and it is all-in-all very well balanced. Probably my favorite beer from this talented brewer (with their amazing 2010 Imperial Weizen).

Big bottle "Fall 2008". Big pop! 80% foam in the glass looks like a block of brown styrofoam. Head doesn’t sink so much as it becomes porous. Black liquid. Big dark chocolate aroma. A strong sweetness in the first few sips. Big bitter chocolate. Alcohol blends right in. Hints of licorice. Lots of chocolate turns to more of a cocoa note in the finish.

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2009
Pours black with dark head. Taste is licorice, a little sourness. Solid porter with above average mouthfeel. Carbonation is apparent. Drinkable stuff, though not exceptional baltic porter.

Nice beer! Black pour and a brown head. Chocolate, molasses, prunes on the nose. Flavor is creamy with some chocolate, and some nice light hop bitterness. Really a good beeer.

Bottle thx Dak! Black with tan fizzy head. Fruity aroma. Flavors are excellent with lots of licorice adding the sweetness, natural cocoa, remaining brilliantly fruity throughout.

Porter Baltique. Very dark brown. Chocolate aroma with light nuts. Light chocolate, fudge...there’s a vibrancy to it as well. It has style with that juicy acidity. Pretty good.

pootzboy (1572) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 29, 2009
750ml caged-corked bottle Decants a lush black roily lager into the glass,... with a massive mocha-colored cap that laces well. Decadent aroma of rich chocolate-fudge over aromatic dried fruit and coffee. light leafy tones. This aroma is pungent and fills the room with a bready-cocoa aroma. Medium to heavy bodied, rich silky mouth, chocolate cake character. Flavor profile whacks you with a big chew on toasty-chocolaty-mocha malts, some sweetness...mid palate you get dried fruit and complexity....long wet finish with lush cocoa-bready-roasted husk tastes...totally hides the alcohol...far better than Okocim...magnificent!

Bottle shared by after4ever. Dark brown with a minimal head. The aroma is lots of dark roast, chocolate, and coffee. SOme dark fruit. Lots of roast and dark fruit flavors, some alcohol, light finish. Maybe a little too boozy for me, but still pretty nice stuff here.

750ml cork and caged bottle from glouglouburp, thanks Dany. Pours a solid chocolate brown with a huge foamy beige head. Flavor of dark fruits, slight alcohol, chocolate and some licorice. Dusty aroma with notes of bitter baker chocolate, rum cake and chocolate covered cherries. The aroma was okay but the flavor was a nice step up and this is one solid beer.
