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.

Bottle that I coerced nbutler11 into opening when we were both at the end of the night, whereupon we each passed out. Make no mistake, I owe him a bottle. HOWEVER. If my mouth was not playing tricks on me, this was the beer of the night. Nose of almond, coffee, chocolate. Tastes of the same plus a great vanilla tying it all together. Smooth and balanced from start to finish. A world-class beer.

Bottle at Volo 750 ml (2009)
Appearance: dark brown , low carbonation , lighter top. 3+
Nose: brown malts , molasses , ripe dried plum , brown sugar , lightly vineus finishing with alcohol. Well refined. 7+.
Flavor/Palate : full bodied , sweet with brown malts , mild roast with mild bitter hop sides. Light carbonation. Alcohol is well hidden. Bit thin for Baltic , good complexity and craftsmanship but also to dry for proper Baltic. I think they missed a point here. Baltic Porter should be superbly crafted yet not as complex as this one. The detail is in making simple great. (Please not score not given to the style.)

Indra (2711) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - DEC 17, 2009
Bottle. Very enticing aroma, full of fudgy chocolate, smoke, faint espresso, wood and dark roasty malts, very strong overall. Thick black color with a lasting tan head. Flavor features notes of chocolate, raisin, prune, very rich but only semi-sweet, finishing a bit ashy and with fading hints of dark cherry. Palate is smooth and effervescent, body is medium-full. Very nice, gives a highly refined impression. Thanks to Eugene!

Dark brown with a large cream head. Ash, chocolate, nut, and licorice in the nose. More licorice and cocoa in the flavor followed by a light milk chocolate finish. Salty body, creamy and with a sticky finish that lasts in heavy milk chocolate. I prefer more malt and less excess in baltic porters, and the licorice note is a particularly unwelcome note here as it clashes with the sweeter, more subdued elements.

JorisPPattyn (8795) - Ursel, BELGIUM - DEC 12, 2009
Porter Baltique Grande Cuvée Automne 2009 Towering, not-lasting dark amber-beige head over well-carbonated deep sepia beer. Dark chocolate; sweet, but stale coffee; roasted, herbs, too long in the frying pan. Sweet-burnt, clashing but still combining well in the end; burnt caramel and again parsley aroma. Sweetness flaring, probably due to the alcohol. Retronasal bitter coffee and indistinct hops. Very slick, oily, very well-bodied; slight burning MF. Nice, if not unforgettable porter. Grand merci à Altair, Betelgeuze et Fomalhaut

Haslinger (891) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - NOV 16, 2009
750mL bottle pours jet black with a nice British khaki head. Smells wonderful, roasted malt, some toffee. Tastes like a chocolately malt coffee blend. Really well blended together in the aftertaste, completely hiding the alcohol until it starts to burn a little in your throat. Very good beer

Dark black pour with a thick moussey brown head. The nose is loaded with dark toasted malt. A touch of dark chocolate and dried cherries over a kiss of soft vineousness. There is a touch of soft earthy coffee and stewed fruity sweetness. A light salty/cocoaish roastiness with a fairly savoury charry maltiness. Plums and licorice over a sweet but roasty finish. There is a kiss of smokiness on the back as well. Nice.
