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.

Courtesy of Stine. Dark brown/black with a medium sized tan head. Sweet chocolate nose with raisins, toffee, some alcohol and roast. The flavor is lightly sweet, very lightly bitter with lots of chocolate, raisins, alcohol, molasses and prunes. Full body is round with moderate carbonation.

kmweaver (3206) - Petaluma, California, USA - MAY 30, 2008
750mL bottle, courtesy of Stine. Thanks, Eben! Pours a dark, chocolate-brown color; light-tan head with mixed-bubbled lacing. Solid amounts of milk chocolate, nougat, and caramel in the aroma; creamy, chocolate-forward nose. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: chewy chocolate, roasted malts, nougat and caramel upfront; some citrus acidity coming through, with a touch of warming alcohol (not much, but present); lots of chewiness and reasonably well-attenuated maltiness; solid stuff. Medium finish, showing lots of chocolate, nougat, and caramel. Good balance of sweet malts and a dry periphery.

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2008
2008-05-17. Black body with a nice tan head that slowly fades. (3+) Aroma is fairly modest, a good amount of roast is dominant but not bombastic, muted sweet malt and light fruit touches. (7+) Sweet smooth malt base, mild roast hints, very mild fruit blends with sugar notes. Smooth medium palate. (3+) Quite nice. At Rudolf’s, shared by Blankboy

kramer (4866) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2008
25 oz bottle, via jimbowood. Pours a dark brown body with just the slightest bit of light passing thru. Nice creamy foamy brown head that retained as a thin film. Huge intense fruity nose, all plum and to a lesser extent raisons, licorice, and cocoa powder. Just a touch of roast and some coffee. Heavy fruit flavor up front starts things off right, but the finish doesn’t do it for me. Seems kinda husky and rough with too much alcohol apparency. Lingering cocoa nibs and alcohol. Mouthfeel is full and thick with some lingering sticky clinginess on the finish. Nice pleasant soft carbonation. Overall, a little too much of a yeast profile as well. Ok, but it’s not as smooth as it could be. It really comes across as more "ale-y" than "lager-y" in it’s character.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - APR 30, 2008
Very tasty Baltic. Nose seems very licorice-like, and the flavor follows suit, a good quality, pure licorice.

LadySusan (720) - Ste-Therese, Quebec, CANADA - APR 27, 2008
750 ml. bottle The color is dark brown with a beige head. The aroma is of malt, the taste is also of malt with added taste of caramel and dark chocolat. There is a nice bitter finish to it that makes it pleasant.
