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.

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

Black pour with medium sized brown head. Aroma full of raison and fig. A mesh of lactose sugar and cocoa, creamy and heavenly. A perfect mouthfeel gives rise to a silky milk chocolate, coffee, nuts, light cream and molasses. Fig newton dunked in chocolate milk with a side of peanuts. Delicate.

Bomber from Pristine Liquors in Spring Hill, FL. Pours a beautiful black with mean brown head. Aroma is sweet coffee, chocolate, and toffee. Flavor is dominated by coffee with some mollasses and burnt chocolate...Fucking delicious. Thick mouthfeel thats as smooth as can be with a great warmth to it...One of my new favorites...love the Smuttynose Big Beer series.

Pours a black color with a caramel colored head. Has an aroma of dark fruit, with hints of chocolate and coffee. The alcohol also comes through on the nose. Has a sweet taste up front with a velvety chocolate taste in the middle. A nice subtle bitterness on the finish. Leave some chocolate notes on the tongue with the aftertaste. Delicious brew.

Hell yeah. Tons of roasted sweet roasted malts, coffee, and fruit in the aroma and flavor. It approaches the point of being too sweet but doesnt go overboard. Well balanced. This beer instantly gave me a strong desire to go do the backstroke in the Gulf of Bothnia.

Wow. WOW. 750 ml bottle pours midnight black and oily into a snifter, fluffy, lively brown head. Light lacing. Nose is heavy with Sumatran coffee, exotic chocolate, raisins, burnt toffee, plum. Taste is dominated by coffee and chocoate, with some dark fruit coming through on the palate. Extremely clean finish for the style, no lasting bitterness, just a mild, pleasant coating on the inside of the mouth. One of my new favorites. Hallelujah.

Pours black with a tan head. The aroma has chocolate, licorice, smoke, berries, and roasted malt. The flavor reminds me of salty Dutch licorice. Raspberries, dark chocolate, smoke, black pepper, flint and a tun of licorice. on the palate. Kick ass porter!

22oz in a shaker glass. Pours dark, dark brown (near black) with a dark tan, lacy head. Normally I dont like porters, but this one is incredible. Strong aroma of chocolate and roasted malts. The beer is sweet, but not too sweet. The initial flavor is that of raisins and chocolate, with a lingering chocolate finish. Full bodied, and sort of has an oily texture. A great porter.

Black pur with a nice looking brown head. Aroma is malty with chocolate and raisin. Flavor is as intense as any other beer Ive had. Huge upfront blast of coffee and chocolate. After the initial surprise, there was a long and lingering dark fruit and oakey, earthy flavor. Absolutely incredible. This beer is probably one of the best I have ever had.
