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.

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.

750 courtesy of Glouglouburp. Pours dark brown with a thin off white head. Smells of roasted malt, a touch of cherries, burned molasses, some dark licorice. Tastes sweet and malty with some nice chocolatey hints and some tartness on the finish.

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.

[1363-20080517] 750mL bottle. Boozy coffee roast malt earth aroma with a fruity figgy "bold" base. Dark dark brown body with red highlights and a quick creamy light yellow tan head. Big fruity dark roast flavour has lots of heavy malt. Full body is sweet. Very roasty.

Roasty, chocolatey mid-palate. Long roasty sweet finish. Pretty damn amazing, and far more than the sum of its parts.

Bottle… Thinkin’ ‘Bout Thirteen Hours O’ Drinkin’ (tew man wrecking crew)This beer rocks!… Tar black brew with a small, creamy, khaki-colored head. Great retention. Amazing, complex fragrances of dried plum, burnt caramel, tobacco smoke, molasses and cocoa. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Burnt malt and singed caramel provide the foundation for lesser flavors of leather, smoke and chocolate. Reminiscent of De Molen’s Tsarina and Mikkeller’s X 2006. So much going on here. Cheers to glouglouburp for providing this treat!
