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.

Fatehunter (2152) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 21, 2012
Poured from a 22oz bottle into a goblet. Quite dark, half inch of tan head. Looks beautiful. Just holding my nose over it I get some caramel, once I breath in it is roasted malt and cocoa. Noticeable alcohol taste. Malty all over. Roasted and a bit of burned malt taste. Oh wow. Smooth and creamy with almost no carbonation at first and then just a light amount at the end. Practically perfect. A great balance of flavor and BIG BEERness to make this a fireside sipper or a more regular drink.

dambor (370) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 29, 2016
Pours black with ruby reflexes, medium head. Aroma: a well balanced aroma of coffee and dark malt, followed by bitter dark chocolate, a touch of caramel and dark fruit. Taste: again great balance, this time of coffee and bitter chocolate, dark malt, nice hoppy palate, leaving a pleasant dark chocolate taste. ABV well hidden. Fantastic brew.

JorgeLee (1699) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2016
Bottle from Drinkers Paradise NW5. Very dark brown/black, thin off-white foam. Smooth roasty chocolatey flavours with some coffee, and a nice bitterness cutting through. Slightly warming without tasting in any way hot, holds its abv nicely. Really nice.

mrjez (410) - Osaka, JAPAN - JUN 12, 2016
Bottle from World Beer Market. Pours near black, low light tan head, some lacing. Rich, dark fruit aroma, raisins and plum, dark cherry, a booze note like port or sherry, light coffee. Strong malt flavour with dominant raisin, chocolate sweetness, drops off a bit mid-palate but lingering alcohol warmth. Fairly smooth, medium body, quite flat carbonation. Very nice sipper.

labeerinthum (482) - Milano, ITALY - MAY 26, 2016
Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso è tipico della liquirizia. L’intensità olfattiva è normale e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. Il cappello di schiuma ha una scarsa tenuta, con bollicine fini e carbonazione abbondante. Il perlage ha bollicine medie. La frizzantezza è vivace, persistente ed insistita. Il colore è scuro impenetrabile. Il corpo è strutturato ma duttile. L’amaro è medio. L’intensità gustativa è elevata e la persistenza gustativa è buona. Il gusto è piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono lunghe e di birra impegnativa. Il finale è felpato, lungo, pulito e complesso. Il retrogusto è intenso. L’aroma in bocca riporta sentori cereali, liquirizia, arrostito, frutta secca, etilico e alcol presente.
