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.

750, corked and baled. Thanks, Glouglouburp! Pours black with ebony highlights at the edges. Thick creamy medium tan head. Nice chocolatey nose. Big roast under the chocolate. Thick creamy body. Roasty, chocolatey mid-palate. Long roasty sweet finish. Pretty damn amazing, and far more than the sum of its parts.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2009 Poured black with a large tan head. Nice roasty malt aroma with milk chocolate notes. The flavor was also roasty with some milk chocolate. There was a light tartness to the flavor though. Medium bodied.

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!

radiomgb (2249) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 23, 2008
Dark brown-near black in colour, lingering thin tan coloured head, light lacing. The aroma is rich, burnt, some coffee, lots of chocolate, good sweetness, light smoke. The flavour is of chocolate ice cream, quite sweet, burnt dark malts, molasses, cocoa. Sweet mouthfeel, full body, medium/high carbonation. Finishes quite long, burnt, sweet with lots of chocolate.

Very rich and sweet, quite good. An excellent beer form this brewery, lived up to my expectations.

750ml bottle from Métro Joannette in Verdun, Quebec.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 20, 2008
Pours a mostly opaque black with dark mahogany edges and a thin lacing, wispy dark tan head. Aroma of sweet dark caramel with some dark chocolate and lightly smoked character. Body starts fairly full and dark caramely sweet with some complex smooth smoky chocolate notes before a slightly drier finish. Nicely balanced and very drinkable.

ATLBeerDog (280) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 20, 2008
Pours a beautiful deep brown almost black – with a slight head, and average lacing and slightly under carbonated. Smells of very strong coffee with chocolate and a hint of liquorish. First taste is surprisingly bitter with coffee dominating and chocolate follows. Nice smoke finish.

Courtesy hopscotch. Pours black, with a smallish light brown head. Smells of some burnt dark chocolate, with a profound dark fruit presence, mixed with some roasty malts. The flavor is mostly the same, with good roasty chocolate malts coming to fruition on the palate. The finish is fruitier than it is up front, which leaves a sweet finish and aftertaste. This is a very well done baltic porter. Great mouthfeel and flavor.

Thanks to Eben for this one. Black body, brown head. Chocolate and licorice aromas. Flavor is chocolaty, sweet, light dry roasted bitter, has a lactic sourness.

Many thanks to Mike for opening this! Poured deep brown with a short cap of tight beige head. The aroma was deep with dry-roasted dark chocolates upfront.. coffee grounds and dark fruit backed it up, leaving a rich, dark, and sexy impression. The flavor had drier dark chocolate, coffee, and dark fruit at the core.. more cocoa-like sugars on the back with dry coffee bitterness riding out the finish.. enjoyable, but a bit harsh at the finish. Heavier-bodied and drier on the palate with some rough, raw alcohol on the back.. nice roast to it. Very good beer.
