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.

Ofortuna's rating

Ofortuna (322) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 12, 2008
2008 22oz bomber. Pours a nice frothy head with decent lacing. Much darker than I was initially thinking. Deep aromas and flavours of raisins, bittersweet chocolate, candied fruit. A bit of coffee and a vinous character. A little bit of brewers licorice on the back end. Good balance between the hop profile and malt backbone. Good viscosity which gave a nice sensation for the mouthfeel. Very nice representation of a baltic porter and another solid offering by Smuttynose.

Fukito (1058) - Santiago, CHILE - APR 27, 2017
Clear but very dark almost brown and an off white creamy head. Aroma is molasses with some raisins and slight tobacco notes. Flavor is same dark fruits, with cake, a little bit of toffee and a gentle bittersweet finish. Just a little bit boozy, but overall very smooth and creamy.

LiwkoLiwko (274) - POLAND - APR 21, 2017
Wygląd poprawny. Czarny z łatwo budującą się jasnoberzową pianą. Niezbyt trwałą. W aromacie uderza alkohol. Szlachetny. Burbon, whiskey? Na drugim planie ciemne słody, czekolada i charakterystyczne dla Porterw razowe pieczywo. W smaku odrobinę lepiej. Na początku porterowe pieczywo. Na finiszu alkohol obmywająca podniebienie. Niezbyt treściwe i gęste.

Inbreak (5347) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - APR 13, 2017
13.04.2017, 12 oz bottle with slightly damaged cap @ home:
No head, just some bubbles. Aroma is slightly sweet sour-ish roasted, dark malts, dark sugar, licorice, grass, minerals, alcohol, bark, hints of sour coffee. Taste is slightly dry sour-ish mineraly, weeds, hay, minerals, bark, dark malts, alcohol, paper, hay, sour-ish roasted grain, sour coffee, hints of licorice and sour caramel. Medium bitterness, harsh mineraly mouthfeel. Probably gone a little bad because of the damages cap.

Vinx (124) - ITALY - APR 1, 2017
Deeply black and a small tan foam. Aroma of red fruit, chocolate, coffee, nuts, chestnut, dark caramel, but not roasted. The same in the mouth and somehow spicy, maybe because of the alcohol content. Highly sweet and highly bitter at the same time. Full bodied, sticky. Its a gorgeous beer but Id prefer it with a smoother bitterness as this style would require.

12 oz can. At the Konttori, Tampere, Finland. Black color with a small tan head. Roasted malt, sweetness, coffee, darkness, mild vanilla and toffee in the aroma. The flavor is roasted malt, licorice, cough syrup, ash, sweetness and mild coffee. Rich and super balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mansquito (6067) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 24, 2017
From my brother: pours black with a beige head. Aroma is coffee, light chocolate. Taste is roasty. Kind of sweet, but not really. Some booze in there. Good baltic.

sudomorph (1140) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2017
355ml bottle. Pours a clear, nearly black with a thin beige head that fades quickly. Aroma has big notes of caramel, roasted malts, dark fruits, dark chocolate, and hints of coffee. Taste is balanced well with notes of roasted malts, dark chocolate, caramel, dark fruits, molasses, and a drawn out, roasty dark fruits ending. Full body with a low-medium carbonation. Round and rich in the mouth with a soft, dry finish. Overall a big, round, rich, roasty beer.

Lisowczyk (76) - POLAND - MAR 7, 2017
Wyraźna, ale nie dominująca paloność miesza się z silną gorzką czekoladą z dużą zawartością kakao, a do tego rodzynki i śliwki. Deser z mlecznej czekolady, nadal nutka bourbonu i lekka kawa w tle. Po ogrzaniu minimalna kwaskowatość od palonego słodu, ale oglnie słodkie, bardzo gęste, pozostałości osadzone na szkle są widoczne bardzo wyraźnie, ale nie chcą spływać. Alkohol świetnie ukryty. Rewelacyjna kompozycja

JoTheO (183) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 5, 2017
Bottle 355ml. Black with a medium beige head. Some earthiness and soy sauce (teriyaki?) in the aroma. Palate not as creamy as expected, unfortunately. Taste is pure with chocloate, vanilla , coffee and som saltiness. Well balanced bitterness, but not as full-bodied as expected.

[email protected], Tampere, Finland. Soft and smooth with lots of coffee and emphasizing licorice nuances. Very good.
