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.


First Batch: 6.2% ABV

Last brewed in 2011, discontinued in 2012.

Great Divide is one of my favorite brewers and this is a nice little smoked porter. It doesnt really break the rules, but just relies on a solid malty porter base with a slight kiss of smoke to liven up my night.

Scopey (14009) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2015
Bottle shared in NH. It pours deep brown with a small beige head. The nose is earthy, restrained smoke, charred wood and liquorice. The taste is bitter - sweet, smooth smoke, roasted malt, liquorice, dark fruit and fruit cake with a dry, roasty finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. A bit tamer than I expected. Smooth and easy-going. Not bad.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - DEC 25, 2014
Bottle: 2011 vintage. Deep brown pour, fully black in the glass. Foamy light-beige head skims to a bubbly film & collar quickly. Aroma contains mild smoke, light char, sweet hickory, roasted malts, faint chocolate, & a hint of caramel. Taste has lots of dark prune, currant, & some dark sweetness to it. Light roast, smoke element is very soft with a faint metallic twinge & a touch of tartness in the finish. A little bit of sweet chocolate syrup, too. Medium bodied. Hoped for more.
