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!

Shared by robert at stateline. Color is a dark brown, decent head. Aroma is roasted malt and dried fuit. Taste is roasted malt, toffe, caramel, small amount of hops, this beer had a little of every thing in it. Medium texture that was blended nicely together. Good beer, thanks again robert!

DocLock (7731) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 10, 2008
Pours deep onyx with 2-finger brown head. Aroma is roasty dark malt, prunes, licorice, dry hops. Tastes dark malty, roasty, dry, with black licorice, prune, and mild dark chocolate notes. Defined backup hops are in the flavor, and the palate is complex and rich. This is top notch.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - MAR 7, 2008
Black body with a small tan head, fading. Brown sugar and raisin nose with bits of toffee, chocolate and coffee. Moderately sweet, lightly bitter taste with prunes, chocolate, caramel and a large amount of roast and doughy yeast. Full body is round with moderate carbonation. Finish is long, bitter, a bit rough and warm. Another solid effort from Smuttynose.

22 oz bomber served in my Smuttynose snifter. Pours a nice black color with ruby highlights and a 1/2" brown head. Nose is mild coffee, grains , dark fruits, & alcohol. Mouthfeel is heavy & oily. Taste is same as nose with light soy notes . There is a slight bitterness for balance. Very good effort from Smutty.

Pours black into a Stem glass. Mocha head with good retention leaves sheet lacing as it recedes to skim surface. Roasted pit fruit aromas. Creamy upfront with a fizzy, lasting bitter chocolate and alcohol finish.

22oz Thanks BMartin08, Pours is a deep dark black, surprising for what i thought i was going to be drinking, smallish light brown head forms, smell is grain and dark fruits perhaps some coffee, bitter chocolate and all kinds of things.. each smell ( and i took about 10) yields something different. a very interesting smelling brew for sure... taste is of wheat/grain smooth flavor yielding to coffee and bitter chocolate, followed with some plum? and dark fruit like a belgian, this is one complex brew, and its bottle conditioned it will be interesting to see how this ages... Very Very nice though so far.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2008
Pours an opague black body with some subtle red notes and a sticky brown foam. The aroma is quite chocolaty with some roasted, somewhat charred malts, plums, anise, and a little alcohol. Flavors are more milk chocolate and less bitter choc., with some earthy smoke and nuts coming through in the finish. Some alcohol in the aftertaste but it comes off tasting more like spearmint. Creamy, somewhat oily palate. Really good stuff.

cellardoor (45) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 4, 2008
Draft at CB Six in Manhattan. Poured with deep darkness and very minimal head. Very strong aroma of roasted grain, almost coffee like (but not esspresso like). Tasted similar to the aroma had some acidity/dryness as would be expected but the clean smooth finish complemented it nicely.

Bomber. Black, nice tan head. Big bold nose of roast, charred malts, coffee, chocolate, raisons and others. Full bodied, smooth, burnt malts, hint of smoke, expresso, lingering bitterness, dry. Damn, just a big ballsy in your face porter. Really nice as it warms past cellar.

This did its job and then some! Poured black with a creamy tan head. Lasted forever in a good way. Aroma of chocolate and coffee. Same as it smelled. Not alcohol presence what so ever. Nicely done.
