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.

[on tap] Potent vanilla and rum aroma with a little coffee and cinnamon. Oily, almost opaque black appearance, under some thin foam dots. Tangy ethanol together with strong vanilla and bitter coffee. Molasses accent and detectable hops. Medium body, moderately warming, moderate carbonation, moderate vanilla tang finish.

Chocolate caramel nose, pours a dark dark brown with a very dark brown head. Taste is an almost smoky, toasted caramel flavour dominating with a warming spicinessstaying on the tongue well after the beer is gone.

Pours a nice dark brown colour with a chocolate coloured head. Aroma is strong dark chocolate and coffee and the taste is similar. super smooth light alc, and sweet sticky on the palate. Great beer

750ml bottle shared by jsprime. simply put, this is the best baltic porter ive ever tried. a stunningly perfect example of the style. Les Trois Mousquetaires might be the most underrated brewery on the planet. thx jeff!

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 (1283) - 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!
