COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Smoked Baltic Porter is the sultry sister of a storied style. Brewed with traditional German malts and hops, this dark lager gets its special twist from a hefty addition of Bamberg smoked malt. This smoldering, medium-bodied lager is sure to please.

Last brewed in 2011, discontinued in 2012.

I like the head. Brown and creamy. Super dark.. Can't see thru it in the light. Not overwhelmingly smoky, great dark malt taste. The alcohol is hidden. I dig it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jkwood04 (5443) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 4, 2013
22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of smoked malts, some roasted malts, hints of chocolate and coffee, and some dough. Flavors blend well and all pretty smooth, maybe due to the age. Average texture. A pretty good beer.

Svesse (8464) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2013
(Bottle) Dark brown colour with hints of ruby. Frothy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of caramel, dried fruit, black rye bread, dark chocolate, smoke, a touch of tar and hints of ginger. Malty, roasted taste with dried fruit, prunes, caramel, dark rye bread, chocolate, soft smoky malt and hints of chocolate and ginger. More than medium body, with a certain sweetness and a balanced bitterness. The mild smoke character makes it quite well balanced. Nice one.

Dark brown body with a big off white head. Roasted malty aroma with smoke, coffee, caramel, some spices. Perfect palate, with a medium to full body and decent non aggressive carbonation. Very nice easy drinking flavour with coffee and smoke, some dark chocolate and wood. Great.

# 3351 ersma: smoked ist klar, aber worin unterscheidet sich ein baltic porter von einem englischen? schwarz mit dezentem schaum. der geruch ist slich, melassig mit etwas rstmalz und dezenter rauchigkeit. der antrunk ist rstmalzig mit dezzentem aroma von schinkenkate. dazu lakritz und kaffe, sowie etwas toffee. die mitte wird rauchiger, dazu leichte hopfenherbe. der abgang ist slich, nur mehr dezent rauchig. dazu toffee. wirkt insgesamt etwas dnn fr ein porter. die flasche ist schlicht und gut. fazit: die dezente rauchnote ist sehr angenehm, wenn man kein freund von verbranntem-holzscheit-bier ist. ansonsten kann man in ein porter durchaus mehr geschmack packen. dennoch gut trinkbar. 9,10,9,8,13,9 - 9,20 - 23/6/13

Pretty solid, with amber hues shining through the edges of the glass, this porter has a thin, light brown head. The aroma is seriously smoked and roasted and very malty. Although its extremely roasted, its not as heavy as youd think it would be in the mouth. Its smooth, but it does get heavy in the belly after a while. I like a beer, regardless of its body, that wont fill you up after one glass. This really starts to, and has more of the heaviness of a dense stout than a porter. This is a very filling beer. That, or it just felt filling because I had already been drinking all day.
