Native to northern Europe, Baltic porters evolved from British porters once exported to the Russian hinterland. Unlike their British cousins, Baltic porters are often brewed as lagers, the tradition we’ve followed. This beer is big, bold & smooth, with malty flavors reminiscent of coffee, dark fruit & raisins. Share one with your comrades!

Strong alcohol notes right upfront on the nose with notes of fruity eaters and roast. Appearance is w dark brown with a small tan head with poor retention. Flavor has notes of coffee, licorice, dried dark fruit. Fusel alcohol notes are also present. Bitterness is medium high. Mouthfeel is full with medium carbonation. Overall, it's a decent beer. The fusel alcohol notes in the aroma and flavor are not pleasing though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ok beer nothing wow about it. Odd fruity/sweet taste that doesn't fit style. Very drinkable. Just not a Baltic porter ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle from Crossroads. Pours black with a finger of foamy tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate, vanilla, caramel, and light roasted coffee. Taste of black malts, earth, nutshell, dark chocolate, vanilla, and hints of dark fruit. Finishes dry with a thicker mouthfeel. Solid

Black pour with a small beige head. Aroma was full of cocoa, light roast, melted candy bar. Flavors were well rounded with nice cocoa notes, vanilla, touch if roasted malt, licorice. Smooth mouthfeel with lighter carbonation. Non intrusive in every way. I can see why this one is at the top of its class. Awesome stuff.

pours black with a thin brown head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is light smoke, dark fruit, anise and coffee. Flavor is earthy. Smoke, dark fruits, light anise and coffee. Body is a little thin but not too bad. oily mouth feel. Low carbonation. Wonderful bitter finish. I have not liked much of the Smuttynose products I have tried. This one is spot on for the style.

Pours black with some tan head. Nose is roast, chocolate, coffee, dark fruits. Up front it's difficult to pinpoint, a cherry fruity note, eventually turns to coffee, chocolate, raisin, a touch of tobacco. It has a definite tough to describe lager quality, it's lighter than I would have expected. Very good.

Dark black-brown in color with a tan mocha head and only traces of lacing. Smell is of roast, dark fruits, and maybe dark chocolate. Tastes of cherries, bittersweet cocoa, coffee, roast, and tobacco char. Some carbonation and coats well on the palate. Sweetness mixed about the aroma and flavor and combine for quite the epic porter imo! No expectations but if I had some they were completely blown away!

Bottle, thanks Ben. Aroma: chocolate, coffee, plum, dark fruits and some raisin. smoked. App: pitch black with minimal brown head. Taste and palate: full body, liquoreux, medium sweetness, dry medium sweetness and a tad bitter finish. sticky on lips. Overall: pretty good. A really good interpretation of the style. Heavy but fruity enough to make it easy to enjoy. Could be more smokey though.
