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!

22oz bottle thanks big time to Cletus, 2008 vintage. Pours a very dark hue with a medium creamy brown head. The instant I open this beer a aroma wafts out that instantly tells me I am in for a awesome drink. The aroma is rich roasted malts, dark fruits and cocoa- not an overwhelming nose. The flavor was excellent; instantly I get my fix for my favorite flavor; loads of rich oily dark fruits. Very nice. There is tons of toasted cocoa and light coffee as well. Silky and fruity at first, as it warmed the burnt flavors of cocoa were more prevalent. Overall, top notch. A gem.

Wooowww. Finally I have this gem in my hands! Hey, for five bucks you can’t beat this. 22 bomber for five bucks. The roasted flavors are those of nuts, chocolate, dark candied fruits, a smoke swig of nuttiness, and lots of roasted toffee/coffee/wheat/malted barley flavors. Perfect porter here. Just fantastic, and worth the wait!!

Thanks kiefdog for the share. Pours a mean-looking black with a large foamy tan head. Nose is roast, dark fruit, spice, dark chocolate, slight boozy raisins, and some alcohol burn. Flavor is mellow baltic porter, lots of great roast and fruit. Flavor finishes with slightly dry roast. Medium to full-bodied and lovable.
