COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Milwaukee Brewing Co’s take on a classic European style, Baltic Porters are the stronger lager fermented cousin of the classic London Porter. The higher strength and cold fermentation help to create a smooth less fruity porter rich in roasted malt flavors and aromas. The Baltic Porter from the Milwaukee Brewing Co has deep brown hue with a light caramel head. Toffee and milk chocolate dominate the flavor with subtle hints of dried fruit. One month of aging in Bourbon Barrels imparted a layer of vanilla and oak.

Ratman197 (9034) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Bottle poured a clesr reddish brown witha lasting creamy tan head. Aromas of carmel, oak, light fruittiness and light cola. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, light oak and a hint of fruittiness with a smooth finish. A very boring Baltic Porter, as well as a waste of Barrel aging.

Drake (7945) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 22, 2011
12 ounce bottle from Badger in Beloit. Pours a very dark murky brown with a large creamy brown head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel and an off note almost like rotten vegetables. The taste is tart fruits and a malty finish. Kinda tastes like a fruit smoothie. Faint whisky and vanilla notes. Medium bodied. This one is majorly infected.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 26, 2010
Bottle thanks to nuplastikk: Pours a transparent dark mahogany with a spotty-lacing clingy froth of light tan head. Aroma of rich sweet dark caramel and milk chocolate with some vanilla notes, doughy yeast and earthy roasted coffee. Starts with a nice dark caramel and vanilla sweetness with some molasses and raisin complexity along with a drier milk chocolate flavor before a semi-sweet toasty finish. A pretty true to style and enjoyable baltic porter.

Ughsmash (7005) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 2, 2010
Bottled. Poured medium iced tea brown with a short-lived beige head. The aroma picked up buttery caramel, chocolate, and toffee notes with tart bourbon and oaky accents.. almost a candy-like overall sweetness.. a touch of molasses on the back. The flavor opened with tangy bourbon and oak over a huge dose of sweetness (caramel and molasses mostly).. more of the molasses, some caramel, and chocolate on the middle.. light vanilla and earth around.. finished with a helluva lot of residual molasses, vanilla, and chocolate sugars (just a hint of oak tanginess). Medium-bodied at best on the palate.. very sweet and lightly roasty.. drinkable, but not anywhere near the upper echelon of Baltic porters.

sebletitje (6326) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 4, 2010
courtesy of BA trade. Bottle indicates Barrel aged Baltic Porter. 12 oz. pours light brown, mocha head. aroma, some berries, dark fruits, the wood aging is very mild and thin on the palate with some moderate note of vanilla, dark and caramel malts. flavors, faint barrel,wood and hints of vanilla, dark fruits, chocolate/caramel malts and light roast. Was really hoping for more of a barrel presence. Regardless, it’s a fairly nice baltic porter, lingering dark fruits, and a finish that is a little too thin.
