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!

Sturdy black pour with towering mocha head. Pretty. Totally burnt offering to smell here, with wisps of chocolate, vanilla and almonds. Little bit of a figgy deep fruited quality to taste and the viscous chewy body was super velvety. The body unfolded quite nicely as the session wore on and deepened in complexity and syrupy goodness. This one falls in the "sip" category and was a face flusher for sure for me. Nicely done.

Bottle. Pours a black abyss with a tan creamy head. Very creamy full body that’s dam near perfect. Chocolate, roast y malt character, chewy raisins, and a vanilla mineral body. Very smooth and well attenuated. Awesome, Awesome, Awesome.

Reddish black in color with deep caramel brown head. Aroma is rich and sweet with burnt treacle notes. Taste is roasty and chocolate heavy, with a viscous mouthfeel, and dark fruit residuals. Reminds me of a more fully fermented version of Oskar Blues Ten Fidy (more drinkable). $5/22oz

Happy 4th everyone! Picked this one up at Greens on Ponce, 22 oz. Tried this last night; this was the best porter I have ever had! Holy crap, poured like a stout. Nice chocolate head that looks amazing. Very creamy and smooth palate. Has a lovely palate. Ah....so creamy it is great. The beer has a very pugent ash/roast/stout aroma. This beer is just insane. Can’t belive Smuttynose is offering this one. Not so much coffee, but a lot of ash and roast flavor(s). Can’t believe this porter, but very good. Nice smooth ash/stout/roast flavor that just lingers on the tongue. The alcohol is hidden well. The beer is just so smooth it is insane. Overall, if you have a chance to get this porter do not be a fool and NOT purchase it!. This beer has the best roast/ash aroma that I have ever had. Very much an amazing beer. Cheers everyone!

Bottle: The aroma has lots of chocolate and caramel with some light fruit and just a hint of roastiness. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a moderate tan head. The flavor starts with lot of chocolate. There’s a hint of fruit (cherry & plum) in the background. The finish has lots if caramel with a hint of roasted coffee. Medium-full bodied with moderate soft carbonation and slightly oily mouthfeel.

Bottle sampled on 5/22/08: Pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with a spotty-lacing dark tan head. Aroma of sweet dark toasty caramel and roasted malts with a touch of black cherries. Body starts fairly full, rich and dark caramely sweet with some sticky roasty smoky character and raisin flavor before a doughy dark chocolate finish. A nice Baltic porter.

22 oz. bottle from Buffalohead. Black with a light brown head and s dheeting sticky lace - beautiful. Roasted coffee dominates the aroma, some molasses and dark fruit come through as it warms. Full body with some astringency on the palate, overall pleasing mouthfeel. Excellent balance with roasted malts flavors and some soft bitterness at the finish. This is an outstanding beer.
