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.

axl (611) - Lund, SWEDEN - NOV 27, 2016
355ml bottle. Pitch black with minimal beige head. Aroma is malty with chocolate, liqorice, almost smoky roasted malt tones and a very light, yet clearly noticeable, fruitiness. Taste offers an initial bitterness at the tip of the tongue later followed by a growing sweetness with full chocolate notes, black bread, light roasted tones, some liqorice and the same light fruitiness as was present in the aroma. Somewhat lively yet smoothly filling mouthfeel, prickly but very light carbonation and a lasting roasted chocolate aftertaste giving way to a refreshing sensation of the same light fruitiness from before paired with light chocolate and a memory of the roasted maltiness.
