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!

Scouser (334) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2013 slight aroma of molasses. Dark brown, almost black with nice lacing. mild liqourice flavor that gives way to a malty molasses flavour. Over all not a bad beer.

basewars (169) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 11, 2009
Pours black with thick brown head which quickly dissipates. Minimal lacing. Aroma is full of raisins and chocolate. A slight bit of hops are detectable and a bit of port. Flavor is of chocolate and fruit. Plenty of coffee as well. Full bodied to say the least. As it warms it mellows. The alcohol seems to dissipate (or maybe I’m just drunker), and the fruitier notes come forth. Plenty happening in this one. Great beer.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - SEP 10, 2009
I drank this beer while watching my beloved alma mater Oregon lose to Boise State in the infamous game where LeGarette Blount punched a guy in the face during post-game. Oregon coach Chip Kelly is a New Hampshire native, so I figured it would be a tribute. Despite all that, this beer was still tasty as hell, very roasty with some oat, chocolate and coffee. Nice deep brown color as well. Tasty damn beer, too bad it couldn’t bring a victory.

Ungstrup (34324) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2009
Bottled. A pitch black beer with an orangey-brown head. The aroma has notes of sweet and roasted malt, chocolate, and cittrus. The flavor is sweet and acidic from the rosted malt combined with notes of alcohol and lighter notes of soy sauce. The alcohol burns the tongue and palate.

Butters (4043) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 7, 2009
Bomber sampled at Butters’ 1500 / MmmcKay’s 200 tasting. Near black pour with wispy tan head. Notes of expresso, rich milk and bitter chocolates, roasty oats, a little boozy, but not overpowering. Medium chewy creamy body. Great beer at a reasonable price is a terrific combonation in my book.

ScottyP (425) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - SEP 7, 2009
Pours an oily dark brown with tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, brown sugar, hints of coffee, dark fruit. Similar taste, very warming. Very good stout, er, I mean baltic porter.

MmmcKay (1052) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - SEP 7, 2009
Pours black with a reddish tan head. Smells of smoke, dehydrated coffee, instant coffee. Nice long creamy mouth feel. Spice, coffee, clean flavors. Surprising for this style. Expected more cloying flavors. Good stuff.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 7, 2009
Pours a lasting ring of tan head with a dark brown body. Aromas of roasted malts, come coffee. Flavor is toast, coffee, roasted malts, some brown sugar, and a note of soy sauce. Sticky, slightly bitter finish.

lamas (1551) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 7, 2009
22 oz. bomber. Bottle-conditioned in: 2009. Pours an oily, VERY deep mahogany with a thick mocha head. A rich aroma of roasted coffee, raisins, dark chocolate, vanilla beans, and a touch of grapefruit. Medium to full-bodied and silky smooth. The flavor starts with some sweet caramel, raisins, and molasses. Dark chocolate and coffee follow. Some sour grapefruits at the end. A roasty, lingering dryness finishes things off. A bit of warming alcohol is apparent.
