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.

Ungstrup (34666) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2007
Bottled at RBESG 2006 - thanks to Motelpogo. A pitch black beer with a disappearing brown head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of caramel and roasted malt as well as light notes of alcohol. The flavor is very sweet with medium notes of roasted malt and chocolate, as well as light notes of whiskey, leading to a dry roasted finish. The alcohol leaves a slight burn in the cheeks.

oh6gdx (25472) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 3, 2006
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.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2006
(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

omhper (23716) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 26, 2005
Bottled. Dark black, brown head. Rich aroma of salty licorice. Coffee and syrupy toffee dominates. The body is full, it’s very roasty with notes of plums. Themouthfeel is filling, but fairly clean. Very rich and true to style, event hough perhaps slightly more hoppy than it’s cousins around the Baltic.

Opaque black - brown beer. Residual tan head. Smooth palate with fine mild carbonation. Smooth dark malt with mild lactose sweetness. No roast or bitterness. Aniseed, violets and red berry fruits as well! Finishes smooth. Very easy drinking - slips down effortlessly.

yngwie (16523) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2006
Bottled at RBESG-06, GTN. Dark, reddish-brown, clear-looking beer with a small, tan head. Coffee, alcohol, mild chocolate, mocha and hops in the aroma. A very smooth beer with wocha, coffee, dark bitter chocolate and a full body. The finish has some alcohol with lots of coffee-bitterness. I want more of this! (060826)

<!-- 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).
