COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Baltic style porter, smooth on the palette with real substance. Lightly malty with a balanced clean finish. Notes of chocolate, coffee and caramel on the palette with a nose of plums, raisons and a hint of spice (from the hops).

Draft at the source. Deep brown-black pour with tan head. Aroma is gentle roasted malt with some decent dark fruit esters, caramel, and nutty toasted malt. Flavor is a clean chocolate roast with more caramel and nutty toasted biscuit. Trail of faint dark fruit. Lingering clean, coffee-type roasted malt. Would agree with a previous rater’s opinion of Baltic-type qualities and clean profile. Nice showing.

Huge snifter pour. Pitch black, big beige head. Baltic Porter? ( yep ). Big and sugary sweet, certainly not classical. Off chalky bandaid and chocolate aroma. Big, enjoyable, but just a touch off. Some vanilla tones. A little odd, cant put my finger on it. Still pretty decent. Some coffee tones.

On tap at the brewpub. Pint pour. Opaque dark brown color with a small tan head . The aroma is big and rich with mocha, chocolate, roasted grains and some sweetened coffee. The taste is similar to the nose, lots of dark roasted grains, mocha and some spicy raisins and dates. The palate is full and smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes long and slightly sweet. overall: Very impressive, very tasty.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2011 On tap at Silver Creek brewpub. Dark brown with a medium brown topper. Aroma of sweet roasted malt, dark fruit, caramel and chocolate. Taste of chocolate, dark fruit, dark roasted malts, some coffee and a touch of spices. Very good Baltic porter.

Pours a dark brown almost black colour. Head is fairly large, beige. Aroma is definately porter like, but i dont know if i would go as far as saying spiced. Or the taste either. Slightly metallicy, the only spice i can faintly pick up was a hint of clove. Other then that, a classic porter taste, but a little weak.

Dark mahogany, some off-white head, small. Big thick sweet malty aroma. Full and lively palate. Sweet roastiness, coffee, burnt notes, some caramel.

Tasty! My first exposure to a Baltic Porter, on tap at the brewpub. Less aroma and not as obvious and heavy with the coffee as most porters, but very well-balanced and perfect for a cold crisp day.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 18, 2007
On tap at the brewpub on 6/21/07: Pours a mostly opaque with dark mahogany edges and a small, creamy tan head. Aroma of sweet dark caramel and milk chocolate with a hint of smoke. Body starts with a rich dark caramel viscosity and good mild plum complexity toward a lingering bittersweet roasty dark chocolate finish. A nice Baltic porter.

Thanks to Blake for bringing the growler! Poured very deep brown, almost black, with a nice initial cap of yellowy-beige head.. left a light ring after a couple minutes. The aroma picked up lots of deeply-roasted dark chocolate and dark fruits.. a subtle smoke accent worked very well. The flavor picked up well-roasted darker fruits and semi-sweet chocolate at the core, with some cocoa powder hitting on the back-end.. mild sourness as well back there.. good stuff! Medium-bodied with a creamy malt backing and bitter coffee accents.. lots of fruity notes in there.. I very much enjoyed it!
