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!

Bottle shared with Midetd. Pours a pitch black with a nice tan head. Has a medium mouthfeel with a black body. Smells like a full body brew with heavy hops. Tastes like I am getting a hop blast with some leather and earth. Overall a nice brew.

DocHop (278) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 29, 2008
Pours a very dark brown with a medium height, foamy, light brown head. Aroma is very chocolaty, with notes of raisins, coffee, and molasses. Initial taste is a pretty complex fruit filled sweetness. The body is very creamy and the finish is a long drawn out coffee malt flavor.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - APR 26, 2008
Bottle. Dark brown pour, some tan head. Aroma is some sweet malt, meat, smoke, chocolate, and roasted malt. The flavor is similar, sweet chocolate malt, and some light smoke / meaty flavor in the back and finish. The carbonation was a bit too high though.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - APR 25, 2008
Pours dark brown with a generous light brown head. Smells of roasted malt, dark fruit, molasses, some roasted malt. Tastes sweet and chocolatey with some spice elements. More of an amped up porter than a typical Baltic porter, but nice.

Braudog (5962) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 23, 2008
22 oz bottle: Beautiful pour ... cascading tan head, settling into a soapy foam over dark black. The aroma is thick and big, smoky and chocolatey. Drinks with a thick oily complexion, the slight warming aspect the first impression. The flavor leans towards burnt chocolate, bad coffee, and a bit of ashy smokiness. Good. (#3433, 4/23/2008)

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2008
Bottle. Aroma of coffee and roasted malt, pleasant, but rather straightforward for such an ambitious brew. Flavor continued to be fairly standard, coffee notes, chocolate notes, nuttiness. Mouthfeel was very, very thick, full, and ultimately creamy. I’m a little torn on this beer, it started off for me with some clashes between the malty flavor, yeasty notes, and overall body. That said, it did grow on me to the point that disregarding my initial impressions I would rate it higher. Rambling, rambling, rambling, I’ll leave it all as is for now and hope to give it another go.

LilBeerDoctor (3509) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2008
Bottle. Pours a dark black with a beautiful dark tan head that persists until the very end of the glass. Aroma of coffee and roast. Flavor of coffee, roast, chocolate, slight raisin as the beer warms. This is a thick, rich beer, very reminiscent of an imperial stout. Very creamy. Excellent.
