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.

Bottle. Pours a dark black color with a decent tan head. Roasted malt notes with some caramel and vanilla in the background. Complex taste. Strong vanilla notes with brown sugar. Very smooth and not overpowering. Overall, a really solid porter.

labeerinthum (422) - 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.

This beer has been a while in my cellar, so if tought it will lose alcohol aroma and some body. Maybe it needed more time? The appearance is quite dissapointing. Color is great - beer is almost opaque black, only on the bottom of the glass there are some brown reflexes. Head retention is problematic - nice, thick foam disapeared in few moments. In aroma there are tones of sweet chocolate and cherries. Alcohol is present, but it smells like cherry tincture. Everything is completed with notes of roasty, coffee-like aroma with hints of soy sauce. In mouth beer gives as everything that nose announced: chocolate, cherry, alcohol warming, coffee, soy sauce. Roast malt character is different - in taste it gives delicate ashy feeling. Mouthfeel is great! Long finish with a lot of sugarry sweetness changing over time to alcoholic bitterness. Really good baltic porter! Maybe not that balanced as many Polish examples. :) It would be great to taste fresh and cellared versions alongside.

Een geur naar verbrande koffiebonen. Kleur heel donker. De smaak is redelijk sterk maar valt heel goed mee voor een porter
