Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: mikesgroove on 12-17-2008

Robust dark lager inspired by Porters from around the Baltic Sea region. This beer is luxuriously round with a mild bitterness. The malts contribute flavors of coffee, chocolate, and vanilla. The use of cherry-wood smoked malt provides a subtle hint of smoke.

Near black color, only a touch of light passes through the base of the glass. Great starting bar-pour head. It leaves a ring of lace after each sip b

Smells like a port--sweet with dark raisins.

Think Port meets Porter. Rich, sweet and smooth. The aftertaste features a sugary almost treacle finish. If you like your beers dry, avoid this one. This is extremely sweet. Otherwise, make an effort to try this. As a Port lover, this bring two of my passions together superbly.

Very excited to try this beer - one of my original 'wants' from when I joined BA and I was fortunate to procure a bottle at the State Liquor Store in Stowe, VT on 12/24/14. 750ml caged and corked bottle served in a tulip. Pours the color and clarity of cola with a loose, fizzy, quarter inch, khaki-colored head. Head quickly dissipates into oily droplets and specks and strands of lacing. Nose is vinous and roasty with kiss of smoke, cocoa and booze. Taste consistent with nose; however, you definitely get that lagered quality in the flavor profile (hard to describe what it is, but it's there). There's a bit of a medicinal grapey quality that comes out towards the back and lingers between quaffs. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with a carbonation just shy of lively, a light acidity and a residual burn at the back of the throat. Overall, not my favorite Baltic Porter, but very much true to style. Not something I would recommend for extended cellaring as I can see this oxidizing with time.
