COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Unlike typical porters, our Baltic Porter is brewed in the traditional style as a bottom-fermenting lager. The result is a luxuriously round, but robust, black beer with a mild bitterness. A special blend of roasted malts provides this porter with flavors and aromas of chocolate and coffee, and you’ll enjoy it’s subtle hints of cherry-smoked malt.

VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 26, 2011
2011 edition. From a 750 ml bottle into a snifter. Pours a deep, dark brown, almost pitch black with some orange reflects and a thin brown head. Smells of caramel, coffee and oak. Tastes of strong caramel, toffee, maybe 70-75%-ish black chocolate and dates. The alcohol definitely is present, yet it helps balance all the caramel, chocolate and dry fruit taste. Aftertaste of very subtle espresso, leaves a persistent, lingering roasted malt flavor. Has a very unctuous, oily texture, with a weak level of carbonation which definitely leaves ample room for all of its flavor. A true masterpiece, which I can definitely call my all-time favorite lager.

Holy hell, this beer is too awesome and while they state the obvious, we will not.... Not a single thing out of place and everyone agrees. The nose of this year’s version is so unique and delectable, like a can of the finest smoked oysters, oily and rich with a hint of smoke and unagi... The amazing colour seems to suck light in so much that it makes a black hole look opaque. Once you get through the intensity of the colour you notice the head is tanned and laces with the elegance of Chantilly lace while the viscosity means it hangs on the glass like fine aged port. The palate has so much rich chocolate and coffee but that amazing soy cured eel lingers and couples with the smokiness to produce the finest liquid meal I have ever consumed. The length is nearly as dense as the colour and I know this will sit in my throat long after the 12 or so other beers I will consume this evening have come and gone. This is the Dali of beers... Unique, intense and one any beer lover should not pass up. Would love to see how it develops in 2-5 years too, 3 going to cellar tonight.

Rich, smooth, resolved with as much chocolate/coffee notes as one could expect without them being explicitly added.

February 7, 2014. 750mL bottle from LCBO. My favourite baltic porter, and my favourite beer from this brewer. Dark chocolate and cherries in nose. Small tan head. Skily mouthfeel. Dark chocolate and sweet ripe fruits in flavour, with a hint of coffee. Quite lovely.

This is my perfect beer. Pours inky-black with a thin brown lace. Excellent mouthfeel and a medium-heavy body but without any syrupy consistency. Tastes of chocolate, cherries, brandy, almonds, sherry, molasses and strawberries, with a sweet though not cloying aftertaste. Well-balanced sweetness that doesn’t feel sugary or overpowering. Good medium-light fizziness, not overcarbonated, and a smooth mouthfeel. Fantastic beer, one of the best porters in the world!

Large caged and corked bottle purchased from the brewery at the source, in Brossard, Quebec, Canada. Poured into a snifter pitch black with a thin tan head that immediately disappears. Slight lacing. Aroma is faint, but detect Kona coffee and salted caramel. Flavor is intense; where to begin: coffee, caramel, dark chocolate, black cherry, vanilla beans, slight campfire, molasses, raisins, figs, dates, almonds and filberts. If that sounds like a dessert, it is! With a thick, slick mouthfeel, this is a go-to winter sipper.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2016 Bière noire comme la nuit, aucune lumière ne peut la traverser, effervescence difficile à observer mais qui semble bonne, et surmontée d’un col brun, pas tellement large, mais dense, mousseux et bien résistant. Arômes dominants de torréfaction (café, chocolat noir et grains brûlés), avec aussi légère fumée, tourbe et levure typique de bière noire (cuir, terre…). On décèle également des effluves un peu plus fruités (prunes, cerises noires…), ainsi que des pointes d’alcool et de vanille. Nez très agréable, complexité et intensité élevées. En bouche, pétillement faible sur la langue, mais le breuvage est d’une onctuosité et d’une rondeur exceptionnelle au palais, très moelleux, très velouté! Au goût, c’est absolument délicieux! Malt torréfié (café et riche chocolat noir!), fumée et fruité beaucoup plus présents qu’au nez (très agréable saveurs de prune, raisin, et cerise noire, avec même de la framboise, et plus…). On retrouve également en bouche la vanille, ainsi qu’une bonne dose de sucres foncés (caramel, érable, mélasse…). Le sucré est dominant dans cette bière, mais sans aucune exagération, et la finale se montre légèrement amère (sans goût houblonné particulier) et alcoolisée. Toutes ces saveurs sont incroyablement bien intégrées les unes aux autres! Complexité et intensité parfaites! Un gros coup de cœur pour moi! /// J’ai laissé vieillir une bouteille en cellier pendant trois ans et demi, et je l’ai ensuite dégustée comparativement à une bouteille fraîche. La bière vieillie m’a semblé plus douce et plus harmonieuse, saveurs maltées plus franches (chocolat, sucres, fruits foncés…), davantage de vanille, légère oxydation qui s’harmonise bien au tout… Mais ce n’est pas si évident… Je dirais que le vieillissement apporte une légère bonification, mais sans plus…

WOW! This beer flirted to be my first perfect score. Dark brown, almost black pour with small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, coffee, vanilla, ripe fruit and faint smoked malts. Taste is frigging amazing, milk chocolate, caramel, vanilla, coffee, black cherry, smoky malts, amaretto and faint notes of peat and a touch of hop bitterness. Perfect carbonation, everthing comes together perfectly, creamy mouthfell, full bodied, absolutely decadent creamy chocolate finish that lasts forever. Brilliant beer, Bravo!!

Basically perfect, rich velvety palate, fruity, chocolatey, a touch of coffee. Complex beer that really evokes "baltic porter" rather than just "imperial stout with a different name."
