Otter Creek World Tour - Next Stop: The Baltic States.
People of the Baltic states like their bread hearty and dark, and their porter is no different. Baltic porters are full of deep roasted malt flavor with only a touch of hops. These beers will warm you up - a much needed feature in these countries where winters are harsh and long. Foreigners wonder how they survive there. I think I have found the answer. Now you can enjoy the full hearty flavor of a Baltic porter here in the comfort of your homeland. TERVIST!

Oakes (17132) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 20, 2008
Dark golden-brown. Big aromatic chocolate malt with vague nuttiness. Fairly light body, only a little bit of brown sugar chewiness and light nuttiness. Finishes a little thin with some light stickiness. I like sea otters and I like baltic porter but this doesn’t do it for me.

Lubiere (13662) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2009
On tap at American Flatbread, Burlington, August 3 2009. A 2007 edition. A clear dark brown porter with a thim moka head, very still. In aroma, nutty and milky chocolate, with a bit of boiled veggies. In mouth, a rather light chocolate porter with a bit of molasse, rather thin bodied. Aging this one may not be the best.....

DocLock (10568) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 14, 2008
22 oz bottle. Pours black with 1-finger khaki head. Nose is dark malt, coffee, dark chocolate, hops. Tastes dark malty, with chocoff, licorice, and assertive hops. The palate is a bit weak in mass, but the balance is good. I enjoyed this one, and Id say this is Otter Creeks best offering yet.

JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 20, 2008
22 oz bomber. Dark brown, slightly translucent. Lightly salty coffeeish aroma. A bit of soft milk chocolate as well. Light lagerish cleanness. Milk chocolate, light cocoa. Very balanced with the nutty nose of a regular porter with a clean lagerish malt character. Nice balance but lacks the intensity of an authentic Baltic porter. It is still a pleasant enough brew though. Very light for the style.

Bottle. Pours very deep ruby with a beige head. Roasted aroma, with coffee, toast, vanilla, and maple syrup. Medium body. Flavor is again roasted coffee, with caramel, vanilla, and a light smokiness. Quite good.

Ibrew2or3 (8557) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 2, 2008
Courtesy of Gillard. Pours dark brown with tan head. The aroma is burnt malts and chocolate malts along with some roasty malts rounding things out. The taste is similar with a mildly creamy mouth feel. I get mild tartness, roastiness, some chocolate and faint fruity esters. By midway burnt malts well up and ride into the after taste along with some faint oxidation.

22. Thanks, 46er3498! Pours black with bright garnet highlights. Thin tan rim. Mild roasty chocolate nose. Creamy medium body. Lots of chocolate on the mid-palate. Mild herbal finish. Not a hugely distinctive beer, but has a pretty nice mouthfeel.

Bomber. Poured muddy medium brown with no head sticking around. The aroma picked up semi-sweet chocolate and caramel with some spicy accents and light peppery alcohol.. on the simple side, but well done. The flavor found caramel, chocolate, and cola sweetness at the core with herbal and lesser coffee bitterness around.. finished sweet with light roast and a hint of tangy warmth. Medium-bodied on the palate and it couldve used a bit more carbonation.. spicy and engaging on the back. Solid, but unspectacular brew.
