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.

750ml brown bottle, corked. 2011. Deep brown in colour, mahogany highlights. Generous tan head, thick consistency, light spots of lace. Nose is slightly smoky, chocolate malts, light fruit. Taste has a sweet cherry like fruitiness up front, deep caramel, smoky and chcolately malts too. Smoke lingers in the finish, bitter black coffee notes, black cherry tang, roasty malts and some cocoa as well. Pretty rich throughout, not heavy handed with alcohol notes. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, the soft texture works with the richness of this beer. Smokiness was not expected, but works great. I rarely enjoy Baltic Porter this much, but this has a lot going for it.

BigMilly8 (389) - Wesley Chapel, Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2014
From bottle : Pours dark as night with a big fluffy brown head. Aroma is wonderfully pleasant. Coffee malts and caramel, sweet roasty chocolate...very complex. The taste is light and sweet. The body is medium when going down, feels lively and creamy with a pleasant finish. Overall a very solid porter that was very much enjoyed.

Apparence: D?une couleur noire opaque, elle est coiffée d?une mousse moyenne d?une couleur caramel d?une durée moyenne. Effervescence difficile à évaluer, mais semble quasi inexistante. Arômes: Au nez, ce sont des notes de chocolat et de malt torréfié. Saveurs: En bouche, c’est un corps léger. Au goût, c’est des saveurs de chocolat et de café. De longueur moyenne, il n’y a aucune effervescence et qu’une très faible amertume.

(Re-reviewed after a year’s cellaring) Pours a deep cola brown with a short-lived tan head and no lacing. Nose is dark fruits, cherry, roast malt, chocolate, very slight smoke. Taste is sweet and only slightly slightly bitter, with caramel, coffee, roasted malt, and maybe just a hint of liquorice. Body is sticky and heavy, but not overly so, and is buoyed somewhat by the persistent carbonation that remains despite the low head. A year in the cellar has not hurt this at all - just the opposite, in fact. The flavours that I felt were muddled before have now blended beautifully. This is deep, dark and rich, sweet without being too much so, with just the right edge and warming on the finish. I think I’ll keep my last one in the cellar for another couple years, maybe pick up another couple to do a vertical. I was far too harsh on it with my last rating - or, alternatively, it’s improved loads - but either way, I’m re-rating it significantly higher.

Prufrockstar (922) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Bottle from RBC. Pours near black with brown head. Aroma is rich: chocolate, coffee, cola, cherry cordials, wine and roast. Taste: rather sweet, rich, chocolate with alcohol and cherries. Medium-full body, slick oily sticky texture. Overall: nice sweet dessert.

Idiosynkrasie (3748) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 23, 2014
750ml bottle. Darkest brown, quasi black colour with average, thick, frothy to creamy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, beige to tan head. Rich and intense dark malty aroma, notes of dark chocolate, roast, coffee, a roasty-herbal-spicy touch, even cautious hints of smoke. Taste is rather different: moderately sweet dark malty, chocolately, notes of dark cherries, cherry liquor, fruit in rum, a dry woody note and some bitter hop arrange for counterbalance; slightly warming, alcoholic finish. Full body, oily texture, sticky palate. Astonishing discrepancy between aroma and taste; I wouldn’t mind to find more of those roasty and spicy flavours in taste.

750 ml bottle. Pours a deep black with wisp of head and light lacing. Aroma is dark fruits, cherry, roast, oak, slight cinnamon and chocolate. Flavor is big and bold, with slight coconut sweetness in addition to aroma notes. Delicious.
