Wow instead of another crappy Euro-lager the LCBO brings in something decent. Nice brown colour with almost no head. The nose is weet and malty and the taste is no different. Strong notes of caramel with a little bit of chocolate. Also vaguely fruity. Not BAd.

Baltic porter is a thoroughly misunderstood style. First of all, I believe it’s a lager, and has little resemblance to London style porter. This is a good example, being dark amber in color, with good caramelly taste and a slightly burnt toast flavor. Closer to a doppelbock, actually.

Bottle. Pours almost black with thick, quickly dissipating head. Aroma taste has malts. High carbonation for a porter.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very thick and creamy light brown head. Nice contrast with total black color. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and syurup. Thick palate. I have to say that the flavor is little bit disappointing after great appearance and decent aroma. Flavor is mild with roasted malts, bitterish and metal. No noticable aftertaste.

Black, brown intense head. Aroma is malty, as expected. Liquorice in flavor, decent hops, bitter finish. Feels much lighter than it seems. Not nearly as good as Koff Porter, but a solid brew.

I have a soft spot for Baltic Porters, and while this isn’t really a sophisticated beer, it’s got a good nose and flavour that reminds me of bread pudding. Not bad.
