COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

60minuteman (1335) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 31, 2016
Color is a cola brown with medium beige head. Aroma is anise, malt, molasses, black cherry and coffee. Medium but very clean body, it drinks like butter. Flavors are the same. A bit sweet but with roast so it stays balanced. Sweet malts dominate and the coffee or toffee adds a real nice touch.

thepatrickman (835) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 22, 2016
An absolutely fantastic showcase of the style, and a great example of how good a well-made beer can be (regardless of how rare it is). Smooth and surprisingly light, with almost no flavors or esters from the yeast, and a lot of complex malt sweetness and chocolate. Seriously good.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2016 Bottle from ABC. Rich roasty chocolate aroma, with some licorice too. Taste is great. Smooth roasty and very bitter. Coffee, chocolate, molasses. Very nice.
