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.

Ebony body with a foamy olive-colored head. Sublime complex aromas of plum, caramel, smoke, molasses and chocolate. Creamy mouthfeel and modest carbonation. High slicky taste of burnt malt, caramel, leather, smoke and chocolate. AYAYAYE. Impressive.

Vignale (2326) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 25, 2015
Flaska från Saveur-bier. En stor och riktigt söt porter med mycket söt torkad frukt, russin, choklad och mycket mört söt malt. Mjuk rund utan kanter, beska eller kärvhet. Kanske Imperial Schwarzbier beskriver smakupplevelsen bäst. Lite väl sött men annars riktigt gott.

Bottled. Very dark brown with some sledge. Very sweet malty aroma of dried fruits and dessert wines. Taste is similar - dominated by maltiness with dried plums reisin. Some alcohol is here medium high to full body. Overll excellent baltic porter.

Franckg (246) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 20, 2015
Arômes de café, sucre, anis, pelures de pomnes. En bouche, goût prononcé de cassonade et de café latté froid. Des notes de bois brulé, chocolat et de mélasse se font sentir. La finale est brève, les saveurs de café au lait collent au palais. Le corps est bien rond, crémeux, doux et sucré. Le taux d’alcool bien caché.

I said to my lovely girlfriend "Ummmm...my god....come be a part of this beer". She came in, sniffed curiously, took a sip and after a few deliciously girly coos and cahs said "I think that is my favourite beer I have ever had". And that folks, is the way she goes. I could go on about how it looks but I’d rather make it clear that I now feel like a dumb-dumb for having only got two bottles, one for now and one to cellar. The flavour is so damned wonderful that I don’t even feel like writing about all of the nuance about it. If you like fine, strong, scrumptious, roasty, dark beers and you are financially solvent and have access to an area that hovers around 10 degrees Celsius, do yourself a solid. Buy a case or two.

This is my perfect beer. Pours inky-black with a thin brown lace. Excellent mouthfeel and a medium-heavy body but without any syrupy consistency. Tastes of chocolate, cherries, brandy, almonds, sherry, molasses and strawberries, with a sweet though not cloying aftertaste. Well-balanced sweetness that doesn’t feel sugary or overpowering. Good medium-light fizziness, not overcarbonated, and a smooth mouthfeel. Fantastic beer, one of the best porters in the world!

HippyHop (348) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2015
Pour is jet black with a reddish cap that sticks around for a bit and leaves some light lace. Nose is chocolate, dark cherries, molasses, vanilla, caramel, light coffee, wood and smoke. Taste is unabashedly sweet, yet somehow not heavy, and not at all cloying. It’s all chocolate and cherries and molasses, with a perfect balance of roasted malt bitterness on the finish. Alcohol is there for a bit of warmth, but otherwise so well-masked. Texture is pure velvet. It’s definitely intense, definitely a slow sipper, but it goes down so damn smooth. Epic stuff.

HonusWagner (1680) - Florida, USA - FEB 8, 2015
Basically perfect, rich velvety palate, fruity, chocolatey, a touch of coffee. Complex beer that really evokes "baltic porter" rather than just "imperial stout with a different name."
