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.

Black with a creamy light brown head. Good strong chocolate aroma and taste with citrus notes, a mild bitterness, and a creamy palate.

Pours a dark black with a dark brown head. Looks awesome. Aroma is cocoa mixed with raisins, wood, pretty great, not as overpowering as i would have liked. The taste was a mix of dark fruit, cocoa, raisin, plum, maybe some wood. very complex that doesn’t quit. excellent wood aftertaste. heavy mouthfeel, medium alcohol warming ability with a smooth finish. This is a really great beer.

Thanks to Ucusty and my secret santa (I think) for the bottles of this! Pours black with a somewhat small tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, earth, leaves, pumpernickel, and vanilla. A little subdued. Tastes of dark chocolate, espresso, fudge, caramel, wood and leaves. Finishes very rounded and nearly "clean" with bitter coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, and a toasty/leafy hop flavor. Amazing transition between initial flavors and finish! Nearly full bodied with appropriate carbonation and texture. So so good!!

pours black with a thin beige head and no lacing. strong, sweet aroma of molasses and some woodyness. Rich, syrupy mouthfeel with low carbonation. taste of chocolate, cream, whisky, smoke, wood, dark malt and caramel. finishes warm with a nice alcohol burn. excellent beer!

not entirely fond of the style this brew could change that. fig newton and nutty with a full frothy body and carbonation. full mouthfeel thick and satisfying. toasted coffee and alcohol, would have liked to feel and taste a bit more rye and caraway as it is my traditional favorite characteristic, yet no doubt this brew is a winner thru and thru.

Serving: Bottle.
It pours almost black with a foamy tan head. The nose is roasty but not burnt with notes of raisin and dark fruit. It is a little viscous on the palate and has notes of boozy, dark fruit, roasted malt, and a bit of earthiness. The alcohol strikes me as being a bit obvious. Medium to rich in body with soft carbonation and a lingering roasty finish. Overall a very solid example of the style and a very tasty brew.

A-pours a deep black color with a decent amount of dark khaki head S-strong roasted malt smell with notes of coffee and a little citrus T-taste like it smells, strong roasted malt, some nice bitter chocolate, some taste of citrus and a hint of bitter hops M-pretty smooth, slightly creamy and chewy and not too much carbonation, light warming and taste of alcohol D-quite drinkable with the smoothness taken back slightly by the hops/carbonation combo
