4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2007 On tap at Silver Creek Brewery. This beer needs to be warmed up to appreciate it’s full flavor. Folks at Silver Creek will be more than happy to oblige. Poured a deep dark opaque brown. Small light brown head dissappated after a few minutes. Chocolatey sweet aroma was just a hint of what was to come. Taste was that of thick rich dark chocolate with bits of carmel, nuts, raisens, plums--heavenly! Every thick rich sip is to be savored. If there is a better Baltic Porter out there, then I haven’t had it!

Sampled on draught at the brewpub in Cedarburg, Wisconsin. Pours an opaque dark brown brew with a thick and creamy off-white head that slowly dissolves to a fine film and ring. Aroma of light roasted coffee, dark chocolate, and some flowery/grassy hops. Taste is heavy (full bodied), sweet with very little carbonation, with dark chocolate and molasses flavors. Finish is smooth, creamy with a slight dark malt flavor.

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.

Tulip at brewpub. Nice frothy tan head. Dark cola body.
Aroma has licorice, roast wood, grape jam.
Nice sticky roasty licorice flavor, stale wet wood, odd un-porter like sweetness (but good, maybe a baltic porter?). Honey? Earthy hops with roasty and slight coffee in the finish.
This is a great beer… a nice introduction to Silver Creek.

Tap. Sweet raisin and chocolate syrup aroma with a roasty bite. Black body under a dark tan head. Smooth dark chocolate, plum and coffee bean in teh flavor. Smooth, velvety mouthfeel. Wraps up with raisin and espresso. A wonderfully fruity, sweet espresso-like porter.

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.

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.
