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 (10538) - 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 (9932) - 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.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear dark brown with a light brown head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has light chocolate with roasted malts and sweet dark grains with a hint of grassy hops. Flavor is a bit more milky with sweet chocolate and dark grains as well as a hint of bourbon.

BVery (7367) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 3, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Bottle. Dark pour, but pours a bit thin and the head is minimal. Nose is pretty nice - roasted malt and a bit of charred wood. Palate is moderate. Taste is roasty malts, and a bit of cigarette ash. Unspectacular.

Ughsmash (7247) - 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.
