COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Native to northern Europe, Baltic porters evolved from British porters once exported to the Russian hinterland. Unlike their British cousins, Baltic porters are often brewed as lagers, the tradition weve followed. This beer is big, bold & smooth, with malty flavors reminiscent of coffee, dark fruit & raisins.

Cunningham (7334) - Halden, NORWAY - JAN 16, 2017
Complete black stuff with a thick nice beige head that leaves a fine lacing. Good intensity in the aroma. Full body and a smooth carbonation level. Mellow nice sweetness. Lovely mix between cocoa, chocolate and espresso coffee in the flavor. Lovely evening sipper.
[Bottle from Systembolaget in Sweden]

ALIBALI (1105) - Kiel, GERMANY - JAN 13, 2017
Schwerst verlt und verflixt BLACK!!! Salmiak, Kakao, Kaffee und Bohnen im allgemeinen 😉, treiben den Aromenirrsinn ins Nirvana. Hart am Limit, das Ganze. Ein sanft rotfruchtgepeitschtes Oatmealmundgefhl, gepaart mit dem roggigen Korpus, bilden das Rckrad fr diesen ordentlich versbitterten Zaubertrunk. Good to drink ist er auch noch. Trotzdem nur fr Opas und Beer Geeks geeignet. Intensiv und manchmal echt lemonsauer. Nice job. 355ml Bottle from ????

SB Kalmar flaska. Svart med fint skum och lite torr kritaktig arom. Dugligt gravl (Astrid. Skulle inte tyckt om den). Frisk brnd fikonsmak. Black lager med impS utseende. Bra gillar den.

hauxe (514) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - JAN 12, 2017
Pours thick and black from the bottle, leaving a finger thick tan head that soon subsides to a creamy layer. The aroma is smoke, caramel, tart berry, and lightly alcoholic. An interesting mix. Taste is bitter with burnt notes, coffee, toast. Overall a very heavy and demanding sort of beer, not the sort of thing that fits in innocuously with a meal. Too big, brash, and burnt. The finish pushes leaves lightly sweeter, with chocolate notes coming to the forefront before fading out amidst the warming alcohol. Did I mention this was heavy? Dont think Ill be needing dinner after this. Good.

Butelka z datą do stycznia 2015. Pierwszy amerykański bałtyk, jaki miałem okazję pić. Piwo po terminie, więc w sam raz. W aromacie dominuje tandem kawy i czekolady, występują też ewidentne nuty utlenienia w stronę miodu, ciemnych owocw. Lekki akcent dymu to zapewne zasługa palonych słodw. W smaku treściwe, szlachetne, alkohol ułożony, oblepiające. Gorzka czekolada, marcepan, kawa to głwne dominanty smaku. Odczuwalne ciało w sposb przyjemny, rozgrzewający. Świetne piwo.

Pours a dark brown with a tan foam head. Nose a bit muted - some faint coffee and malt, but not much. Taste is black licorice, some smoke, and bitterness and a hint of alcohol on the finish. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
