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 weíve followed. This beer is big, bold & smooth, with malty flavors reminiscent of coffee, dark fruit & raisins.

Braudog (6014) - 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)

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. Iím 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, Iíll leave it all as is for now and hope to give it another go.

LilBeerDoctor (3527) - 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.

On tap at Sputyen Duyvil. Deep dark black in color with a medium off white fluffy head. Chocolatety malty roasty aroma. Caramel toffee, nutty notes. Chocolatey hoppy malty flavor. Full bodied. Creamy and smooth palate. Nice beer. Very drinkable.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - APR 20, 2008
Aroma: lovely... coffee, roasted, wintery hops, chocolate fudge, earth, old wine, vinous, creamy.
Flavour: mm... dry, roasted bitterness... seems more like sourish imperial stout, nutty, full-bodied, alcoholic bitterness.
Appearance: oily black with tan head.
Palate: very decent smoothness. Crisp. Feels fat.

redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 18, 2008
Vanilla, chocolate, roasty, and almost smokey aroma. Pours black with a thin tan head. Thick on the palate, hoppy, roasted malts with chocolate and vanilla flavors, with hints of smoke in the finish.

Ty5592 (1018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2008
Bottle. Pours black and oliy with light milk chocolate head. I knew this beer was gonna be good because I took one sip and my wife said I smellíd of alcohol. Aroma of dark fruit, chocolate and burntness. Flavor the same with sweet chalky finish. Not a bad brew here, I liked it alot. Only thing is as I go to the end of the glass the taste was straight rubbing alcohol.

sloth (2640) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - APR 18, 2008
Small light brown head, good retention and a nice scattered lacing. Black in color, opaque. Darkly fruity nose, hint of raisin, chocolate, cocoa with a light roastiness. Body is med/full, silky on the palate. Choco roast flavors up front, medium sweet malts, light black patent notes, notes of vanilla bean, coffee and some berry notes as well. An almost dry, roasty finish. May not be a Baltic Porter exactly to style but it,s damn tastey stuff for sure. Bottle procured @statelineliquors.

As you would suspect, this beer poured black as night with a barely there brown head. I didnít get much out of the aroma other than sweet malts. The taste was equally dissappointing, 2-D. It tasted like chocolate and alcohol. On the same wavelength, the mouthfeel left a lot wanting. It was chalky and so thin, it gave what ought to be a big, black full-bodied beer an almost transparent taste. I would serve this beer with freshbaked chocolate chip cookies.
