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.

Not too impressed. I’m a little bit schnockered and this still doesnt impress me.

Pours a dark but very clear brown with a light brown head. Aroma of roastiness and a little vanilla. Flavor has notes of chocolate, coffee, some faint spice/cinnamon, cola and a hint of charcoal. Pretty sweet. Has a medium body that leans more to the lighter side. Overall, it was solid but I wasn’t blown away. This was from a new bottle (bottled in Saratoga Springs) I wonder how much different this tastes when you have it at Southampton.

I have been wanting to try this beer for a very long time, when I first put this on my want list it was around a 4.0 I believe. The nose is smokey with chocolate malt and a bit of caramel. Taste is more malty then roasty, with a decent body, but this beer is not 1/2 as rich as it should be being a baltic.

Pours dark with a decent tan head. I can see through this, why? Aroma of port, coffee, raisins, and chocolate. Taste is coffee/chocolate, one-dimensional. Palate is too thin. Lacks a noticeable finish. I’d hardly call 7.2% Imperial. Disappointing.

henrikb (1258) - Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 15, 2007
@ blind tasting - A little thin black body with a red shine, small bubbled beige head; Small slightly metallic, white sugar nose, very thin coffee bean aromas as well; Soft a bit thin body, slightly fruity, a little caramel sugary sweet; Medium long finish with caramel aromas, some unpleasant almost fusel like caramel aroma. Boring and thin.

Bottle. Pours black with a rather small brown head. Somewhat sweet with notes of roasted malt, chocolate and light hoppy. Body a bit too thin.

coldbrewky (1423) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - JAN 17, 2008
Bomber from Half-Time: Pours a translucent brown/blackwith a nice dense heat that goes to lilly-pads of carbonation with a thin film of head. A very gentle nose of malt and nectar exists but not that noticable. Body is Light and a bit watery but well represented with chocolate and pale malts. Not much hop presence and a sweeter taste prevails upon the palate. Obtuse...not rounded. Not as distinctive as I had expected. Shrug of shoulders from the cashier should ahave told me something. Not bat for 3.75

BrotherGrendel (787) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 11, 2009
On tap at Blind Tiger in NYC! A- Mostly black hue, thin off-white head dissipates, minimal lacing S- Bitter hops and alcohol, some roast and coffee malts, somewhat subdued T- Initial taste follows the aroma, mild hops mixed with roast and coffee malts, finishes slightly dried, underwhelming M- Medium-bodied, watery smooth texture, mild carbonation D- Middling porter with poor hop presence and mouthfeel, lacking in any sort of bold flavors, would not get again

milljam (682) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 8, 2009
Aroma is pretty weak...some hints of coffee and roasted malt, but little else. Flavor is similar. Overall, a poor representation of an Imp porter.

12 oz. bottle. Not much going on here for an Imperial Porter... actually a little disappointing. Alcohol is blended well but it is just a toned down version of this style. I guess that is what I should expect for the price point... if you want a drinkable Imp. Porter and plan to handle a sixer, this is OK but if you want quality, invest in Victory’s Baltic Thunder-
