COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fade to Black, that time of year when the light seems to fade away. We drift further into the darkness with each passing day. Volume 2- Smoked Baltic Porter is inspired by our collaboration with Nrrebro in Denmark. This mischievous cousin to Smoke Jumper has a penchant for pillaging and burning everywhere he goes. Smoked malts redolent of the burned thatched roofs in villages and towns all over Northern Europe impart flavors to warm the spirit of invading hordes far from home. You finally have something in your hand darker than the winter night sky.

mensch (289) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JAN 11, 2011
Smooth and creamy, but still light on the palate, with well integrated smokey flavors. Lingering bitter malt and smoke finish. Compare this to other baltic porters (best ever!), rather than other smoked beers (too broad.) I do taste a good dose of dark fruitiness - burnt prune - not appropriate for the style, but it tastes great, so screw "style."

mathieuc (3496) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 15, 2015
On tap at Ginger Man way back in 2013. Pours a deep black with a offwhite head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of burnt grains, smoke and some booze. Taste is of coffee and other roasted malt derivations and green hops. Moderately bitter and it doesnt feel sweet at all. Body is full, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel quite smooth. Alcohol is not as prominent as the nose would indicate. A really nice smoked baltic porter, not a sweet mess like so many others!

rikstar (2337) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2014
0,33l fles gedeeld met Nikos. Zwart bier met een bruine schuimkraag die snel slinkt. Geur en smaak vallen wat tegen, de rook is moeilijk terug te vinden, de donkere mout is ook meer op de achtergrond. Biertje is vooral erg zoet. Niet vies maar ook zeker geen uitblinker.

Botella de 33 cl en cimmeria en octubre de 2012. Color negro intenso. Bastante buena smoked baltic porter con 7 vol y un cuerpo medio fcil de beber. Ligeros sabores quemados y ahumados con algo de chocolates y cacao. Bastante buena y para repetir sin problemas.
