COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Otter Creek World Tour - Next Stop: The Baltic States.
People of the Baltic states like their bread hearty and dark, and their porter is no different. Baltic porters are full of deep roasted malt flavor with only a touch of hops. These beers will warm you up - a much needed feature in these countries where winters are harsh and long. Foreigners wonder how they survive there. I think I have found the answer. Now you can enjoy the full hearty flavor of a Baltic porter here in the comfort of your homeland. TERVIST!

A very nice treat, which really goes to show that this World Tour beers are pretty damn good sometimes. Pours a very dark brown, does not look thick coming out, with a small head. Aroma is wham bam chocolate míam. Itís an ashy dry chocolate with medium roast, light chocolate milk sweetness. Taste is similar on chocolate with a bit of roast and a light prune finish. The feel is definitely lager-esque, not sure whether it really is or not. Itís got that filtered, light drinking feel to it., which kind of adds to the authentic "Baltic" feel. But I like it, especially the chocolate sweetness without the heft.
22oz bomber, Chimay goblet glass.

Draught: Aroma of dark malts, chocolate, coffee, and roasting. Poured very dark brown/black in color with a medium-sized, creamy, beige head that diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Not sparkling. Good to very good lacing. Flavor of chocolate, alcohol, roasted malts, and coffee. Flavor is not very complex. Medium body. Smooth, creamy, lightly chalky texture. Soft carbonation. Medium sweet malt finish with some alcohol burn. Much better than I expected, and the bes of the Word Tour series I have had to date.

notalush (4856) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 19, 2008
Nearly black beer, with minimal lace - lightly dough aroma, with notes of dark roast coffee, , dark chocolate, a little bit of ashy/tobacco character - low carbonation, somewhat creamy - a bit thin-bodied for the style, but fairly tasty - notes of vanilla, chocolate, espresso, some blueberry and undefined lagered fruitiness - some light smoke and woody character develops late - okay, so as a baltic porter, it lacks oomph, but if you look past what one expects for the style, this is a tasty beer, and certainly one of the best this brewer has produced.

DocLock (7861) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 14, 2008
22 oz bottle. Pours black with 1-finger khaki head. Nose is dark malt, coffee, dark chocolate, hops. Tastes dark malty, with chocoff, licorice, and assertive hops. The palate is a bit weak in mass, but the balance is good. I enjoyed this one, and Iíd say this is Otter Creekís best offering yet.

JoeMcPhee (8410) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 20, 2008
22 oz bomber. Dark brown, slightly translucent. Lightly salty coffeeish aroma. A bit of soft milk chocolate as well. Light lagerish cleanness. Milk chocolate, light cocoa. Very balanced with the nutty nose of a regular porter with a clean lagerish malt character. Nice balance but lacks the intensity of an authentic Baltic porter. It is still a pleasant enough brew though. Very light for the style.

22oz. Dark cherry, coffee colored pour with an oily head. Roasted malt and raisins all over the nose. Plums and raisins in the flavor - light cocoa, some smoke. Somewhat light on the palate. Maybe a bit to fruity.
