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!

Strykzone (4902) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Bomber. A big chewy looking tan head is cool. Lacing remains as it falls. The beer is black with almost no red visible. The aroma is coffee and chocolate. First sip is quite robust. Raisins and super rich malts. Lighter roasted notes. Brown sugar and bitter dark chocolate. This is pretty much delicious. This is so rich and thick in the mouth. What a good beer!

What the hell is "dark fruit?" Pours dark, dark, dark brown with smallish tan head. Can definitely smell the raisins and roasted brown sugar on the nose. Starts sweet and finishes roasted. Medium body with light carbonation. Bottle - Ale Yeah! - Decatur, GA

Beerenberger (1414) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JUL 31, 2013
The aroma is roasted malts, dark fruit, and chocolate with hints of buttered biscuit with grape jelly. Pours a SOLID inky black with a khakie ring and no lacing. The taste is amazing! Strong roast flavors, dark fruit, with touchs of coffee and dark bitter chocolate. Full body with moderate carbonation. Smooth round mouthfeel. Overall, a winner from Smuttynose. Not a beer to quaff, but one to savor.
