Our imperial, Baltic-style porter is inspired by the strong, dark brews exported from Great Britain to Eastern Europe in the 18th and 19th centuries. Rich and flavorful with upfront notes of chocolate, caramel and toffee.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 2, 2004
Molasses, caramel, chocolate, coffee, roasted malt (H); herb hops (L); red grape, plum, red wine, cask wood, brown sugar, vanilla aromas. Large, creamy, light brown, lasting head with excellent lacing sits on a tawny-black body. Heavily sweet, lightly acidic flavor becomes a moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter finish. Medium-full body, creamy texture, lively carbonation. The bottom line is: incredibly tasty beer that just gets better as it warms.

This is a real good Baltic Porter. Roasted chocolate, coffee, and earthy flavors. Finishes creamy, crisp, and clean. Recommened.

Awesome porter. Deep brownish-black, creamy tan head. The nose on this was full of chocolate covered cherry, toffee, cream, and roasted coffee. Flavor profile was similar, with a slight tangy, hop edge to it. Malt wins the overall war here though. Medium bodied, fizzy carbonation, smooth, tangy, bitter-sweet finish. Love it!

Dark brown, almost black. Fine beige head. Good lacing. Lovely, roasty flavour of sweet chocolate & burnt coffee w/ some nutty undertones. Smooth, medium, lightly carbonated feel. Roasty flavour of bitter chocolate & burnt coffee w/ some vinous & nutty elements. Light hops & alcohol in finish.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - JUL 5, 2004
Black with a rocky tan head. Aroma is sweet, coffee, chocolate and dark cherries. Taste is moderately sweet, coffee, choclolate, smoke and alcohol. Almost a stout rather than a porter, but tasty by any name.

Quite dark brown with some red shining through - big tan head, bubbly and lasting. Something to look at. Nice choclatey nose, fresh with great roast and just a light hint of coffee - as timid and as daring as it need be. Big sweet malty front with a touch of roast in the middle. Thick and slightly bitter - could definitely beef up the roast without insulting it. I completely agree with Radek; great beer, but doesn’t stand up to the real Baltics.

Wow. This stuff was excellent. Very deep and dark, almost black body with red highlights. Tan head. Aroma was of coffee and chocolate with some nuttiness. Decent body and good mouthfeel. Flavor was roasted coffee and chocolate and hints of vanilla and nuts. Yummy.

So what is the deal with this? A porter that is actually good? My my, what is the world comming to? Black with a big tan long lasting head. The nose is malty with smoke and light hops. The taste is chocolaty smoking with malts and cream. Sweet and a bit bitter at the same time. Good stuff.

Great dark sweetness, figs, fruits roasty molasses, mmm smells good. Dark as night. Not overly sweet. Astringent (light), acidic (moderate) tang, beginning malty, staying smooth, ends with the lovely porter tang. Straight up porter. A hit.
