Redoak Baltic Porter has been brewed true to style and is a rich tasting beer with a velvet smoothness on the palate, a burnt currant fruitiness, followed by a warmth embrace of alcohol. This beer style originated in Russia for Catherine the Great in the Royal Court in the 17th century. David first tasted a Baltic porter in 1994 in a small café in Poland and no-one seemed to know what it was. Internationally, it was a lost style until discovered by Michael Jackson (the Beer expert) in 1997.

Bottled. Dark amberish ruby colour. Aroma of candy sugar, plum and mild roasted malts. Flavour is malts and candy sugar with dry fruits and roasted malt. Alcohol gives a very warming effect, though it doesn’t show up that much in flavour. Very pleasantly done.

(Bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of Phil (motelpogo) who travelled the world for 3 months with this in his backpack to bring it to RBESG 2006 in Gothenburg. What an effort.... Pours a clear, reddish mahogany with a small, light brown head. Full and vinous aroma with sweetish, roasted malt and some dried fruit. Full-bodied and very complex with raisins and other drid and overripe fruit. Very warming alcohol and a subdued bitterness. A pleasure indeed. 260806

<!-- i -->Bottled@RBESG’06<!-&# /i -->.<!-- br --> Pitch black, stready cream tan head. Parfumic alcohol and madeira wine in the nose. Liquerish palate, alcohol, toffee, some coffee. Nicely complex but maybe a bit overrated (when it was rated 4.13).

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2006
Bottle. They keep this in the fridge and it was way to cold to start off with, so i let it warm a little bit before i passed judgement. It was worth the wait because this was quite good. Quite sweet and a little sticky, but with a enough roasty bitterness to balance things. Dark fruit, bruised fruit, toffee, mocha, there is some nice complexity in here. Too sweet if anything, but i’m being a little picky when i say that, because this was very nice.
