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.

Edition 2008 a 10%. Cremeuse a souhait. Fruits foncer, chocolat, cafe, rotie, alcool sont les saveurs qui dominent. Beau collet qui dure quand meme longtemps pour une biere a 10%. J en fait ager une quelques annees. 10% 2008 edtion. very creamy. Dark fruits, chocolate, coffee and alcohol dominate. Average head that lasts for quite long for a 10% abv beer. I have one aging for a couple of years...

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - DEC 22, 2008
2007 bottle with a different label (bistro l*autre oeil) from glouglouburp.

pours a reddish brown shade of opaque black topped by a medium sized orange tinted cafe au lait colored head. slight horizontal trails of lacing. big time tar/asphalt aroma followed by fudgey chocolate, nice tobacco, vanilla, licorice, scalded cream, bruised red apples, fresh strawberries (yep), umami and a slight acidity. fairly sweet palate though less than the majority of baltics. it*s cut nicely by a bitterness and great sourness. flavors of chocolate, toasty grain, black raisins, brown sugar, five spice spiciness and black licorice with an ashy charred finish. coffee joins the aftertaste party. medium body. super slick texture. prickly carbonation and char make the sugar almost a non issue and make it a whole bunch easier to drink in quantity. 8/4/8/4/16/4.0

StefanSD (2116) - Lakeside, California, USA - DEC 13, 2008
bomber bottle courtesy of fordest. Pours a dark black with a full tan head. The aroma is moderate with molasses and chocolate. The flavor shows lots of rich chocolate along with coffee, mocha and brown sugar. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. Overall: A very robust and flavourful Baltic Porter, one I would like to try again sometime.

Bouteille 750ml. De couleur noire et opaque. Nez de malt rôti, de chocolat noir, léger de houblon herbeux et de crème (faibles notes lactiques) avec des notes fruitées (raisins, traces de cerises noires), d’alcool et de fumée de bois. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture riche et moyennement crémeuse. Moyen goût fruité (raisins, notes de cerises noires, traces de prunes) accompagné d’un léger goût de réglisse noire ainsi que d’un léger goût de crème (légèrement lactique) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un goût de malt rôti-brûlé ainsi qu’un goût de chocolat noir riche et sucré ainsi que des traces de mélasse et de caramel. Parallèlement, l’on retrouve un léger goût d’alcool réchauffant accompagné d’un léger-moyen gooût de houblon herbeux jusqu’en finale, où l’on dénote également un léger goût boisé. Post-goût moyen, moyennement amer de rôti-brûlé, de chocolat noir, léger de houblon herbeux, de fruits (moût de raisins et de cerises), d’alcool avec des traces boisées.

WeeHeavySD (3360) - San Diego (Hillcrest), Oregon, USA - OCT 15, 2008
Via trade with glougoburp. Pours big and black with 3 fingers of a light brown tan foamy goodness. The nose is sweet and chocolaty with big roasty malts. Taste is sweet and chocolaty this is excellent, its very big and very malty, with a lot of bitterness. This is exactly what a Baltic porter should be huge in a lot of ways and yet slightly restrained as to not be so boozy.

Thanks to bitbucket tasting. Mild coffee. Really smooth. A little soy and black licorice. Nice roast. Manages to be both rich and smooth at this ABV; well done.
