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!

2009 Bottle from tap & mallet, rochester. Dark pour with a solid tan sheet of suds. Nose of burnt sugar, licorice, & a little chocolate in the somewhat nicely robust nose. Some smokey notes as well. Carbonation is very soft, showing up mainly at the end. Thick too, carrying firm malty sensations, chocolate and smoke, some licorice too, and robust raisin notes and chocolate covered dark fruits. Has held up considerably well over the 3 years...remaining loaded with malty flavors and thick, somewhat chewy body...even still remotely hoppy in the finish to balance it all out. Quite nice.

Opaque. Very full body, smooth texture, dense flavor, high alcohol, long palate, bittersweet finish. Bittersweet. Raisiny, coffee flavor. Wonderful in the rich stout style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beautiful dark chocolate pour w/ retaining mocha head that leaves a ring of lacing. An awesome aroma that is robust w/ toffee, caramel, malt, & fruit draws you in. The taste is true to the aroma & quite complex in flavor. The mouthfeel is perfect! It’s light & creamy while carrying the immense flavors in this beer. Simply outstanding!

AlainG (1035) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 24, 2014
Brun, pratiquement noir qui laisse passer du rouge, sous sa mousse, mince, toutefois persistante. C’est chocolaté comme première impression olfactive. En s’y remettant, je perçois un mélange de fruits secs et de mélasse. Ça semble simple comme description des odeurs, mais c’est plutôt intense. Le liquide soyeux en bouche, fait glisser des saveurs de torréfaction, de café-crème, de carrés aux dattes et de miel de sarrasin. Encore-là, ça garoche. (992-280114)

1/21/14. Bomber. Pours inky dark with a 2 finger mocha hard that disappears fast. Mild roasty nose. sharper dark roast mouth bite with less smooth mouthfeel than my benchmark Duck Rabbit Baltic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hfmejias (618) - Dover, Delaware, USA - JAN 5, 2014
22 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured dark almost black with a very nice tan head and tons of lacing. Aroma of fruit and coffee nice and strong. Taste has the sweetness of the fruit and malts combined with coffee notes and a slight bitterness combined with a hint of smoke. Great beer absolutely delicious.

22oz bottle courtesy Phatdog1. Poured a opaque black/brown color with a perfect tan head and gorgeous lacing. Taste of roasted malt, caramel, dark fruits, dark chocolate. Perfect massive body, medium carbonation. Bad ass brew!

Dark pour, tannish brown lacing, lovely dark chocolate flavoring with nutty undertones... downright delish!

HogTownHarry (5983) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2013
22oz bottle - been in my cellar at least 3-4 years. Deep, almost opaque ruby-black pour, decent slightly diminishing tan foamy/creamy head. Aroma of grape, floral bitterness and tart fruit. Taste - very minerally - it’s a senior citizen, but has held up well, alcohol and roast and grapeseed for days. Light, slick mouthfeel, decent carbonation, a quick and fruity, sharply bitter finish. Not bad for its age.

Brentv (229) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Poured from the bomber a deep dark black with a small tan head. No lacing. Aroma of coffee, dark fruits, and raisins, just like the bottle says. Flavor is the same, but sweet and so rich. There’s a slight bitterness, but not much. Nice carbonation. Creamy full mouthfeel. Lovely. This is so much more than I expected from a porter - more like an imperial stout. Very very nice.

NikkTwist (1383) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Draft at Khyber Pass. Opaque black pour with a foamy light brown head. Reduced to a thin ring. No lace. Baltic Porter through and through. Deep salty chocolate coffee flavors. Charcoal grill. Raisins. Rich plum pudding. Fruit cake. Nice thick body. Close to the standard of what a proper Baltic Porter should be.
