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.

Aroma is coffee, pipe tobacco, raisins, and brown bread. Flavor starts malty, with coffee, chocolate, and dark fruit. Roast coffee bitterness and alcohol in a very dry finish. They promised big and bold, and they delivered.

gr_pa (264) - siemianowice, POLAND - APR 23, 2016
Bottle, 15 months after bottling. Clear, almost black, small creamy head. Aroma: sweet malty, breadish, fruity esters, bit soy sauce. Medium to heavy sweet, full body. Very complex taste: malty notes, some sweetness, coffee, bit fruity . Short, bit hoppy finish with some roastiness. Well hidden alcohol. Well balanced.

This is a phenomenal Porter, right up there with Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald. Chocolatey and smooth. Great beer!

60minuteman (1217) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 31, 2016
Color is a cola brown with medium beige head. Aroma is anise, malt, molasses, black cherry and coffee. Medium but very clean body, it drinks like butter. Flavors are the same. A bit sweet but with roast so it stays balanced. Sweet malts dominate and the coffee or toffee adds a real nice touch.

thepatrickman (530) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 22, 2016
An absolutely fantastic showcase of the style, and a great example of how good a well-made beer can be (regardless of how rare it is). Smooth and surprisingly light, with almost no flavors or esters from the yeast, and a lot of complex malt sweetness and chocolate. Seriously good.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2016 Bottle from ABC. Rich roasty chocolate aroma, with some licorice too. Taste is great. Smooth roasty and very bitter. Coffee, chocolate, molasses. Very nice.

danielemolino (106) - torino, ITALY - FEB 20, 2016
Bevuta in bottiglia da 33 cl da orobirra a torino. Italia. Valida. Scura. Al naso ottimi sentori. Un po amarognola per il genere e non dispiace. Finale degno di friggitelli.

Biroholik (613) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - FEB 18, 2016
Ekstrakt : 22% wag.
Chmiele: Sterling (USA)
Kolor: Ciemny brąz. Pod światło wiśniowe refleksy.
Piana: Duże i średnie pęcherzyki. Tu i ówdzie mocno podziurawiona. Czapa w kolorze beżowym gęsta i zwarta. Lacing wzorowy.
Zapach: Nie jest zabójczo intensywny. Czuć paloność oraz czerwone i ciemne owoce. Na przeciwległym biegunie słodkie nuty w postaci czekolady i karmelu.
Smak: Głęboki, mocny i długotrwały jak conajmniej w solidnym RIS-ie. Solidna słodycz w postaci cukru trzcinowego, czekolady i melasy. Po kilku minutach na języku pojawia się pumpernikiel i delikatne nuty whisky. Owoce w ciemnych odmianach pojawiają się po kilku chwilach. W oddali majaczy bardzo stonowana domieszka dymu z ogniska. Goryczka średnia. Bardzo gęste i treściwe a zaraz smaczne i pijalne.
Wysycenie: Średnie do niskiego.
Bałtycki Porter Numer 3 na świecie według RateBeer. Uwarzony przez amerykański browar Smuttynose z Hampton, New Hampshire. Świetny Bałtycki Porter. Jestem fanem Porteru Bałtyckiego z Pinty i uważam że jest odrobinę lepszy od tego. Ten jednak jest również bardzo smaczny. To co najbardziej mi w nim imponuje to jego gęstość - wprost niebywała, kremowość i gładkość. Bogactwo smakowe jest tniekończące się i każdy łyk dostaracza kolejnych wrażeń. Polecam każdemu kto chce sprawdzić jak smakuje wyznacznik stylu.

MoritzF (9094) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - FEB 17, 2016
(bottle, 35.5cl) Black coloured hue with a brown and firm short foamy head. Mildly sweet/molassy and moderately roasted malty aroma with earthy notes, liquorice, chocolate, also hints of ashes, smoke and traces of herbal spice. Bitter-sweet flavour, quite full bodied with a silky carbonation. Well-embedded roasty malty taste with a cornucopia of flavours: liquorice, chocolate, coffee and subtle fruity notes; balanced and lasting bitter-sweet finish with a muted alcoholic strength. Superb. 17.II.16
