Id had this beer last year at a festival, and Id been wanting to visit Silver Creek ever since. The brewpub is very cool, and this beer is quite unique, offering a lot of bourbon character in place of the rich roastiness most commonly found in this style. It was served in a brandy glass or tulip and was opaque with an inviting tan head. Presentation was very wine-like. Smell was rather bourbon-y. Flavor was a bourbon and oak flavor. It was good, but wasnt the quite dry roastiness Ive come to associate with better porters. Mouthfeel is that of large and uneven bubbles. It is quite unusual, but I didnt love it. I had this on-tap at the Silver Creek brewpub.

Tasty! My first exposure to a Baltic Porter, on tap at the brewpub. Less aroma and not as obvious and heavy with the coffee as most porters, but very well-balanced and perfect for a cold crisp day.

Dark mahogany, some off-white head, small. Big thick sweet malty aroma. Full and lively palate. Sweet roastiness, coffee, burnt notes, some caramel.

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2007 On tap at Silver Creek Brewery. This beer needs to be warmed up to appreciate its full flavor. Folks at Silver Creek will be more than happy to oblige. Poured a deep dark opaque brown. Small light brown head dissappated after a few minutes. Chocolatey sweet aroma was just a hint of what was to come. Taste was that of thick rich dark chocolate with bits of carmel, nuts, raisens, plums--heavenly! Every thick rich sip is to be savored. If there is a better Baltic Porter out there, then I havent had it!
