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.

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

Deep blackish brown body with thin chocolate tan lacing. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with notes of beautiful rich tobacco roast, lush dark chocolate and bitter dry oak. Jack’s Abbey FH portfolio is a world class example of how delicious and well-executed the Baltic porter can potentially be as a style.

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, chocolate, roasted malts and coffee.

Appearance:
Opaque black beer with a medium/large head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts with malts, caramel and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts and coffee.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. The amount of roasted malts is insane, this is simply an Imperial Stout. We had a sweet one and an almost smoked one, together creating a perfect balance (once again).

This is not a Baltic porter but anyone who cares is dumb. I’d say it’s basically an imperial stout or an imperial porter if you believe such a thing is different than in imperial stout. (Hint: it isn’t.) I like this stuff fine. It’s got a pretty nice roast grain and chocolate character and is reasonably smooth even though it burns way too much for ten percent. I suppose it is on the lighter bodied side for a big American brew, something along the lines of what you’d expect from a well-made Belgian ale of this strength. It is still a bit creamy even though it’s not too heavy and this helps further bring out the chocolate as well as some cherry/fruity notes. I’d say this is definitely above average for a big beer. It is not completely obnoxious but still very flavorful and lends itself to slow sipping w/o being pancake syrup. I will likely never drink this again in my entire life but that goes for all beers so why point it out for this one? I don’t know. You tell me.

500 mL bottle shared with ebone1988. Got this in a trade a while back. The pour is a lighter black, light brown color with a thinner cap of light khaki head that falls to a bubbly collar. The aroma is very roasty. It’s got the bitterness and heavy roast to go with a light dark chocolate. There is a light molasses and a decent sweetness to it that is pretty appreciated. The flavor is one dimensional. There is a very subdued oxidation up front, but the roast and bitterness really comes charging through. A dark chocolate is present in the back end. It’s one dimensional, but it’s in the right dimension. The mouth feel is excellent. There is a soft carbonation and a nice viscosity. It really clings to the palate and gets a little better as it warms. The chocolate and bitter roast dominate, and that’s what tasty in a Baltic.
