Dark, Robust. Monteith’s Baltic Porter is a soothing velvety Porter with a soft liquorice nose, adding a spicy lift to the rich malt base. There is a gentle barley note in the mouth that tends to sweetness at first then rounding out into a lovely dry malt biscuit finish. You will find no heavy chocolate or any grassy hop characters, just complex malt and spice with the merest, tempting touch of sherry contributing finesse. Monteith’s Baltic Porter is equally at home with a crusty bread and tasty aged cheddar as with Chinese food that uses a touch of five spice or star anise.

33 cL bottle, courtesy of Papsoe. Pours clear and golden deep hazzlenut brown with a diminished white head. Light hoppy aroma with a backbone of roasted malt. Sweet and roasted malt flavour with a nice and light spiced feel and lingering roasted finish. Smooth and easy.

MiP (15272) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2008
Bottle, 7.0%. Roasted, slightly burnt aroma, hint of cream. Clear dark brown colour, red shine. Very small tan head. The flavour starts off slightly sweet, turns more liquoricy and ends with a little creamy coffee. Not as powerful as the ABV could suggest, but well-balanced quite nice.

Very nice brew. Bitterness is decent. A bit too much locorice.

bozoNZ (758) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 16, 2007
Nice dark colours. Aromas a little cherry and raisen. Sweet with come complexity but a thin body lets it down. Nice dried fruit flavours but a typical lightweight version of a style that Monteiths are becomming known for.
