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 we’ve followed. This beer is big, bold & smooth, with malty flavors reminiscent of coffee, dark fruit & raisins.

[email protected], hki. black. pretty strong malty, robust, some leathery tones, light herby. Med full bodied, full flavoured, doesn’t ick nor overrun, kinda nice sturdy palate. Malty, some woody vinousness, overly dried fruits, malty with a slight roasty, stale coffee- like finish. Real nice drink. Like liquid rye näkkileipä with a cup of coffee.

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]

Schwerst verölt und verflixt BLACK!!! Salmiak, Kakao, Kaffee und Bohnen im allgemeinen 😉, treiben den Aromenirrsinn ins Nirvana. Hart am Limit, das Ganze. Ein sanft rotfruchtgepeitschtes Oatmealmundgefühl, gepaart mit dem roggigen Korpus, bilden das Rückrad für diesen ordentlich versüßbitterten Zaubertrunk. Good to drink ist er auch noch. Trotzdem nur für 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 gravöl (Astrid. Skulle inte tyckt om den). Frisk bränd fikonsmak. Black lager med impS utseende. Bra gillar den.

Flaska. Svart öl med ett beigt skum. Dofter av kaffe och rostad malt. Smakinslag av kaffe, lakritsrot, asfalt och rostad malt. Oljig munkänsla.

hauxe (708) - 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? Don’t think I’ll be needing dinner after this. Good.

beton (592) - Tarnobrzeg, POLAND - JAN 11, 2017
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 owoców. Lekki akcent dymu to zapewne zasługa palonych słodów. W smaku treściwe, szlachetne, alkohol ułożony, oblepiające. Gorzka czekolada, marcepan, kawa to główne dominanty smaku. Odczuwalne ciało w sposób 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
