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.

BeergeekKorea (24) - SOUTH KOREA - JUN 26, 2015
Bottle. Deep red, dark colour and not so creamy head. Not strong, refreshing aroma of hop is crisp. Almost full body, and dark malt flavour like black currant and coffee. Dry finish with a little astringent and grassy hop-bitter. A outstanding one of the baltic porters!

Aurelius (4637) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 21, 2015
Toasted soy, lightly chocolate, doughy, dry aroma. Standard 12oz longneck, OK label, though Smuttynose labels suck -- Chronos or something, and engraved. Mmm. Seedy bitterness, bittersweet cocoa, soy and pretensive grain (millet, buckwheat, etc.) notes. Medium body. Slick mouthfeel though it loses a little carbonation. Stiffly bitter, gunpowder finish with bakers chocolate overtones. Market Square Liquors.
