COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Badder Elmer’s is a meaty dark lager, utilizing cold fermentation temperatures to achieve a quaffable and clean brew, with malty highlights ranging from nutty to licorice and candy caramels. Fruity aromas lead to a complex malt character and supportive continental hop bitterness.

Pint on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Black color, kind of clear reddish around the edges. Good thin tan head. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Mildly chewy. Light slick finish. Nice dark chocolate, mild dark fruit, good moderate roast, touch of chocolate. Moderate sweet taste, nice light bitter. Good balance to the taste. Very solid, satisfying baltic porter.

Draft to taster at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a dark cola brown color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have mild roasted malt, dark fruit, toasted bread, a splash of caramel and chocolate, too thin for my liking.

From tap at Churchkey. Pours hazy dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is toasted caramelish malty. Toasted dark malty, caramelish, sweet and light toasted. Mild bitter and light hops fruity. Medium sweet and bitter into the finish.

nuplastikk (4955) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 7, 2011
Draft at Sugar Maple. Thick, opaque black with a massive, steady beige head. Sweet chocolate aroma. An interesting Porter, not so far removed from a Belgian Dubbel. Fruity tones, maybe some amber malt. Somewhat bland and watery despite some rich chocolate and alcohol notes. Doughy, almost oatmeal tastes. A little bland, forgettable.

on draft at their tap room. good aroma of malted sweetness and chocolate probably a dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate. no head to speak of and no lacing in the glass. refreshing and sweet tasting. not alot of hop action in this but you get a bit of the floral on the end. worth a growler.

Nose is burnt and chocolatey. Thin head no lace. Taste is bready malts, caramel, heavy dark chocolate, and sweet malts. Carbonation and creamy smooth texture make for a nice mouthfeel. good but seems weak for a Baltic porter

I had this just as Upland Baltic Porter, no mention of Badder Elmer’s, but I assume it is the same. Brown-red, beige tan cover. Sweet chocolate aroma, roasty. Taste is sweet anise, roasty, chocolate lingers.

Growler courtesy of EithCubes. Pours a deep brown body with ruby highlights. Two finger, frothy tan head. Light roast and toast in the aroma, along with bready malt. Crisp, light chocolate flavors with very low, smooth roast. More faint toast and bread crust. Low level toffee notes as well, along with a touch of raisin. Really clean and nuanced malt flavors. Medium-full body, average carbonation and moderate bitterness (mainly from roasted malts). Well balanced. Overall very tasty! I love the focus on the malt profile.

On tap at the tasting room (Indianapolis, IN). Pours a dark brown with reddish highlights and an off-white, creamy head. Aroma is sweet and lightly malty with notes of chocolate, light roast. Flavor is sweet and malty with notes of nuts, chocolate, spice, light roast, some funk. Medium body with a malty finish.

From a growler I brought back, about a day old but with a great seal from their new growlers. Chestnut pour lets ruby light through, has a lacing tan head, fluffy and spoonable. Aroma a muted red berry. Taste is sticky jolly rancher, light smoke, berry, crisp and clean lightish medium body, great lager character here, just supper, super clean. Alcohol showing a bit, lightly syrupy. Almost no bitterness, develops into a pure "malt showcase", says JG.
