COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Big, Bold, and Black. This unusual lager style has many similarities to Imperial Stouts. A lengthy conditioning period creates a silky smooth chocolatey mouth feel enhanced by the use of oats and brown sugar. Noticeable sweetness gets balanced by roasted malt and hop bitterness. At 10% alcohol by volume, this beer is sure to keep you warm on a cold winter night.

Darkest brown in color with a ring of tan foam. Baker’s chocolate , roast, and a faint sugar sweetness. Flavor is similar but better - so very balanced with delicious chocolate and roast malt dominating but never dry or acidic. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel and very smooth finish. Well done.

Pours black, ring of head. Aroma is ash, cocoa, and candy sugar. Silky, full body. Sweet. Some bitterness on the finish, but not all that much.

sarauckelman (480) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2017
Utterly black with no head. Lovely chocolate aroma. Rich and smooth flavor of coffee-candy with a rich roasted undertone and hints of cocoa. Silky smooth mouthfeel.

bbbeer (787) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 8, 2017
Dark brown, a little bubbly. Tan head. Mocha and nutty aroma. Body fairly light, unexpected. Some carbonation. Deep roasty malt flavor, cola, mildly sweet, drier finish. Interesting, the flavors themselves are good not great but complex yet light and drinkable for ABV.

On draft. This is one seriously well-executed beer. It’s packed full of flavors and ingredients, but it manages to stay worryingly balanced and restrained. Even with a high ABV and (I’m guessing) a huge malt bill, it drinks light and crisp. There’s a good amount of light chocolate and a bit of toast flavors, but it’s still deceptively easy drinking, with some more bitterness showing as it warms up. This is stupidly good.

blueshockey24 (542) - Colorado, USA - JAN 22, 2017
Bottle. Pours black with tan head. Aroma is chocolate and malt. Taste is sweet chocolate malt with a malty chocolate finish. Good but not memorable.

zathrus13 (1773) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2016
Bottle. Pours dark brown, with a light brown head. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malt, and oats. Flavor is dominated by chocolate, but there’s also malt, along with a bit of hops and alcohol. Medium to heavy body, with a long, chocolatey aftertaste.

Piwo, którego butelką 0.33 spokojnie mógłbym się podzielić, bo jest bardzo obfite w smak i aromat, ale jednak nie czuję, żeby wypicie całej butelki było męczarnią. Bardzo fajny Porter Bałtycki. Potężny zapach, słodkość, karmel, trochę ciemnych owoców, czekolady i kawy, lekkie mam wrażenie orzechy, praktycznie zero paloności w zapachu. W smaku równie bogate, bardzo pełne, naprawdę niemało ciała, bardzo gładkie. W smaku czuć więcej spalenizny, troszeczkę popiołu, ale poza tym fajna czekolada, owoce ciemne, kawowa lekko końcówka. Szkoda tylko, że nad Atlantykiem robią takie Portery Bałtyckie, a nie nad Bałtykiem :P

Bottle. Nose oc chocolate, umami, touch of soy and smoke. Black with lace. Sweet, rich malt flavor, chocolate and cocoa, great body. Loved it.
