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.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2011
2009 Vintage. Enjoyed from a 22oz bomber in a stemless wine glass. the beer pours a nice black hue, with a low tan head. The nose shows really appetizing characters of chocolate milk, dark chocolate, and a slight roast note; along with a background note of Munich and perhaps a medium lovibond crystal malt. Any hop character has long fallen out of solution. The palate shows much of what was advertised in the aroma, with a touch more emphasis on roasted character. Milk chocolate, mellow roasted flavors, a nice residual caramel/toasted malt sweetness, and a finish that is absolutely surprising in its dryness. Again, hop bitterness seems nonexistent, indicating that the alcohol may be adding a touch of bitterness, along with the roasted malt. Overall, the beer shows a level of complexity and refinement that is exemplary. A stellar example of the style.

Doesn’t have a strong, extremely appetizing aroma but sits great on the palate and easily drinkable.

Robe bien noire petit collet persistant. Aromes torréfiés bien cafe et un peu boisé. Ronde a souhait un peu sirupeuse mais sans excès reglisse et café en bouche. Longue comme il faut. Un vrai petit regal.

hawthorne00 (2820) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 10, 2015
Bottle. Black with a modest tan head that doesn’t last all that well. Aroma of prunes, licorice, coffee, moderate roast. Medium bodied; smooth with moderate carbonation. Lots of coffee and dried fruit, gently tapering sweetness into a clean slightly bitter finish. Fine stuff, smooth and very easy drinking for 8.7%.

Po przelaniu do szkła tworzy się sycząca brązowa pianka, szybko opada praktycznie do zera, barwa ciemno brązowa, prawie czarna. Aromat przypomina śliwki w czekoladzie połączone z likierem kawowym, w tle minimalna paloność - nie jest zbyt intensywny, aczkolwiek przyjemny. W smaku na pierwszym miejscu likier kawowy i gorzka czekolada plus sos sojowy, trufle, marcepan, nieco wanilii... Generalnie wszystko to jest bardzo intensywne, wyraźne, nie trzeba się doszukiwać. Goryczka początkowo delikatna po chwili dochodzi do średniej. W afterteasie nuty tytoniowe, alkohol wyraźny, ale dobrze wkomponowany, fajnie rozgrzewa, odczucie w ustach nieco powyżej półpełnego, lekko popiołowe, lepkie. Nagazowanie średnie, ciut za wysokie jak na ten styl - zapewne to + wysoki alkohol sprawiły, że piana przypominała tą z coli. Bardzo udany Porter Bałtycki, treściwy, wyrazisty, wszystkie składowe smaku tworzą świetnie ułożoną całość. Nie potrzeba tu leżakowania, ponieważ jest to trunek kompletny. Gdyby jeszcze zmniejszyć nasycenie...
