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.

I think there is no significant difference between their Baltic Porters, a rounding difference on a.b.v. is all.
Pours black with dark head. Taste is licorice, a little sourness. Solid porter with above average mouthfeel. Carbonation is apparent. Drinkable stuff, though not exceptional baltic porter. More mal than any coffee or chocolate. (341 characters)

Thanks to jmgrub for sharing this one at drewone's place.

2011 vintage.

Pours an almost opaque super dark reddish-brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, smoke, and wood. Taste is much the same with a smoke and cocoa flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with some great aromas and flavors. (617 characters)

A: The beer is jet black in color and poured with a quarter finger high tan head that gradually faded away, leaving on a bit of lacing on the surface and a very thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: There are light to moderately strong aromas of roasted malts in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of roasted and burnt malts, the latter of which lingers through the finish. There are also some hints of hops.
M: It feels slightly higher than medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: You might want to slowly sip this beer on a cold winter night but it’s incredibly easy to drink considering its strength because the alcohol is well hidden from the taste, which is unusual for the style. (743 characters)

2013 edition, on tap at back country pizza. if this isnt barrel aged, wow, if it is, still wow, its fantastic! have not had enough beer from these guys, the price points are really off putting, but the beers are such turn ons. thick and shiny this one, viscous enough, big looking, dark but not impenetrable to light, a little red glow exists in bright light around the edges of the globe. it smells and tastes like it saw some time in bourbon barrels, sweet and vanilla forward, it really seems like it, and the smooth feel attests, although im not positive it is. the coffee aspect is there too, but more on the front end than the back end, unconventional but fitting. there are caramels and buttery notes on purpose in the middle, a counterpoint to the roasted barley profile thats trying to be dry and bitter. full bodied to say the least, sweet all the way though, swear i taste whiskey, but i also get raisin cake and almonds, so who knows. awesome brew, lager yeasts asserts itself right in the very last instant. before that, hard to tell its lagered. rock star quality, but id like to try more of their beer. this has my interest, and the gose was excellent as well. i need more please! (1,195 characters)

As rich and fortified as any Baltic porter but also cheating a bit by borrowing some roasty and unresolved sweetness that makes me think of tropical stouts.

Baltique starts with a weighted plop into the glass, giving the impression of silky and viscous textures. Modestly carbonated, but the onyx black beer seems to form a dense platform of foam that reduces to a ribbon of lace around the surfaces perhaps a touch sooner than it should because of the shere viscocity of the beer, its alcohol, and level of sweetness; and with low levels of lacing to boot. A good look but it's hindered by its bigness.

Malty, malty, malty sweet to the nose with burst of malted milk balls, Whoppers candies, medium coffee, walnut oils, bittersweet chocolate, and rum-like alcohols. A soft grape-like ester lurks deep in the background.

Roasty malt flavors give the first porterish impressions, but the heavy toast, medium roast, and coffee soon give way to the malty-sweet dominance at mid palate. Robust flavors of walnuts, malted milk, chocolate, honey, and cream take hold. Additional sweetness seems to be of lactose or some other source than barley and doesn't attenuate away- leaving a sugary sweet (think powdered sugar) bit that joins the malt and rivals the toasty, roasty character of the beer. With one taste, it's a savory sweetness. With the next, it's a distraction from the malty roast.

Full bodied, the heavy ale carries an early creamy weight into a sweet feel on the middle of the tongue before finishing with a long linger of sugar, roast, and chocolate. The beer's aftertaste lingers deep into the next sip- whenever that would be.

If intensity of flavor wins you over, then this beer will satisfy, but it's a large beer for its style- far exceeding what porters are expected to be. If the label wasn't adorned with the porter moniker, then I would have assumed a foreign export stout of tropical origins- that's what they do.

Again, a great and mighty shout out goes to flipper2gv for working with me on this swap! (2,026 characters)

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color ale with a medium size foamy head with average retention and minimal lacing. Aroma consists of light black chocolate with some sweetness coming through. Taste is a mix between some black chocolate malt with a seriously dry ending. Full body with medium carbonation and no alcohol was apparent with some vinous notes without being cloying. I am not exactly sure what to make of this beer – different and not totally on style but still interesting nonetheless. (494 characters)

750ml caged and corked bomber, autumn 2009 vintage, left over from Christmas, and as the snow seems in temporary retreat, no time like the present...especially when it's TGIF.

This beer pours a solid, light-gorging black, with faint red highlights when pressed to the light, and three pudgy fingers of puffy, creamy cocoa brown head, which leaves some low-lying cloud pattern lace around the glass as it lazily recedes.

It smells of boozy bittersweet chocolate, wet tobacco ash, roasted caramel malt, dry coffee grounds, besotted raisins, plums, and prunes, nutty yeast, and earthy, musty hops. The taste is more semi-sweet hot chocolate mix, grainy caramel malt, sugary nougat, balsa wood, trail mix, vanilla-flecked coffee, slightly off milk, mild brewer's yeast, anise, and a surprisingly mild booziness (providing you take small sips, just a handy tip!).

The carbonation is quite low, just a wee frothiness to get us by, the body big (but not BIG, y'know?), somewhat thick, slick, and pleasantly unctuous in its heady smoothness. It finishes sweet, in a persistent chocolate caramel manner, but with a nice drying hoppy, fruity, and boozy counter-effect.

For its purported strength, this is dangerously crazy-easy to drink, the amped-up beyond belief porter smiling and smirking all the while. Roasted, fruity, nutty, pleasantly boozy, and well, lagery! I'm still not certain as to the ale/lager heritage of this style, but I would having no problem urging you to ignore that when pressing this to your lager-boy friends, when they sneer at the wine-bottle appearance of this kick-ass offering. (1,603 characters)

Simply stated, one of the best beers I have ever had. This was included as an extra from a very fine Canadian BA who I had the honor of trading with recently. I had never heard of the brewer nor the beer. But I this lovely bottle was corked and caged, served chilled and poured into a New Belgium Snifter.

The pour was very, very nice. Rich dark brown, essentially black coloed beer came forward right away.Completely opaque with a huge tan foamy crown that rose up over the top to a height of atleast 2 inches and literally sat there for a few minutes before settling down slightly to a thin veil that coevred the entire glass.

A unreal aroma then caem forward from this. Rich scents of vanilla, molasses, dark fruit and bourbon just jumping out all over the place. This was one of the strongest aromas I have ever encountered. Even as it warmed it was just so full, notes of coffee and chocolate starting to come through now as I take the first sips. This was unlike any baltic porter I have had., It was insanely big and full. Rich chocolate then mellowed into mollasses and finally a coffee infused finish that simply put, would not quit. Huge full bodied profile was perfectly cabonated and the richness of the flavor made this one of the best sippers I have ever come across.

Overall I really do not know what to say here. This was an extra, something I had never heard of, and it ended up being one of the best beers I have had in the last year at least .I need to see if more of this is around, as really I was blown away by this one. (1,551 characters)

Everything from this Quebec brewery I have had has been top notch,I have been looking to get my hands on this beer for a couple years,thanks to Roger at Bestway I was finally able to get some.Poured into a half liter stein a deep deep dark chocolate color with a 1/2 finger deep beige head atop.Cherry wood smoke like the label says is predominant with dark roast coffee and raisin,as it warms the coffee really comes into play more.Lightly smokey with big dark roast coffee ground flavors,it's brash and big,cherry and raisin flavors abound with some mild earthy tones in the finish.The best Baltic porter I have had and that's saying something,it's as good as advertised if not better,my favorite beer of 2012. (712 characters)

From autumn 2010, shared with rudzud, thanks to grub for sending me this one.

Decent creamy darker color head fades at a med pace, decent lacing, pitch black beer no light.

Nose is very aromatic, nice dark malts, toasty black malts, faint roasty slight metallic mineral lager like, little caramel toast, some cocoa and almost vanilla.

Taste stars with dark malts, just a bit of dark roast slight soy acrid, but then quickly into a nice toasty dark porter, good cocoa and caramel, little syrupy, a light latte like iced coffee flavor, just a touch of oxidation later. Bit of bitterness from the dark malts and faint earthy hops, light acrid roast. Lager characters are there, light mineral and crisp flavors. Finish is long, slight more oxidation, sticky slightly syrupy but very long cocoa and toasty caramel malt flavors, some bitterness.

Mouth is med to fuller bod, decent carb, syrupy feel hides the booze well.

Overall pretty nice beer, goods malts and lager feel, the aged feel was nice other than the slight oxidation, tasty with a long great finish. (1,061 characters)

Thanks to papat444 for sending this rarity my way. 2008 edition. Served in a Sam Adams pint glass.

A - Pours with a billowing dark foam that eventually settles to two fingers before dissipating slowly - good amount of lacing. Dark, dark, brown body that has a nice glint of ruby red at the fringes. If there was a touch more lace, and a touch darker body then it'd be perfect.

S - Dark fruits, cocoa, a touch of maple, a touch of leather and smoke, pretty well-hidden booze. It's a good, straight-up Baltic porter.

T - The taste is pretty similar - loads of cocoa, a bit of earthy hops, espresso, leather, and a strong roasty bitter aftertaste. Again, nothing crazy, but quite tasty. Well hidden ABV.

M - It's a little higher in carbonation than I prefer, but not inappropriate for the style. A surprisingly dry finish, with only a little bit of residual stickiness. The body is a little gritty.

D - This was a pretty good beer, but not as awesome as the other few reviews led me to believe. Still, a few of us killed the 750ml bottle pretty quick. I'd drink this one again. (1,079 characters)

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. (476 characters)

Poured on tap into a snifter glass at Churchkey for DC beer week. Always wanted to try this one even though I am not the biggest Baltic Porter fan.

No head presented. Thin soupy collar, tan in color barely hanging on. Deep walnut brown body with a slight red hue to it also.

Real nice bouquet on this beer. Great tobacco and woody notes at first. Sweet vanilla like cream and pipe smoke. Light roast but not emphasized on the nose.

Palate is noticeably sweet but not too terrible. First hint is a woody like maplesugar sweetness, then good kick of vanilla and hints of clotted cream smoothness. The mouthfeel is intensely full but very light which is shocking how it plays out. Palate comes with some more diversity. Black licorice, with a mild roast soft finish.

Overall a unique take and very memorable. A bit sweet for my tastes but much to enjoy here. (859 characters)

Purchased for me from Slowbeer by @epiclurk, and shared with @FakeCousinAndrew, @tobeerornottobe and @LaitueGonflable.

Very dark black body, with a hint of reddish transparency at the edges when held to the light. Head is pleasantly full and crackly, a deep tan colour. Minimal lacing, and the body is actually slightly lighter than I expected, but otherwise, a really good looking beer--one I want to sink my teeth into.

Lovely roasted but slightly sweet character, a lot like you get in a barrel-aged American Impy Stout. Some amount of almost seltzer acidity to it, but with very dark overtones of burned out campfires and toasted coconut. Deep but pleasant.

Taste is very roasted, but with really lovely notes of brazil nuts and almonds coming through to balance the dark characters. Gives it a leavened and sweeter, lighter note to go with the bold and brash darkness. Very refined as well.

Mouthfeel is slightly lighter than it might be, but this perhaps is the only thing that turns this from an Imperial Stout into a Baltic Porter. It's ever so slightly more supple and airy on the palate, which aids the drinkability.

Very, very good beer this one. Trois Mousquetaires continues to impress me, and this, indeed, is them at the top of their game. (1,259 characters)

Poured from a bottle into a true pint, this is from the 2011 vintage. The beer is a dark auburn-brown color with a filmy coating of light brown, big bubbled head. Dark, rich nose of balsamic vinegar, oakey wood characteristics, roasted nut, and a slight bitterness. The body is creamy and rich, with roasted and full flavors. Wood and earthy notes are imparted on a dark nut and creamy backbone, with an overall roasted quality. Roasted and boozey aftertaste, with a slick finish and lingering roasted charcter. Very smooth, very strong, and very good! (552 characters)

Most Baltic Porters aren't entirely opaque but, for all intents and purposes, might as well be; this one, however, fully is and its head-to-toe balsamic black body won't concede anything more than a thin ruby underbelly, not even when held right up against a lamp. It makes an overnight thundershower seem bright by comparison.

I wish I could put in to elegant words that which makes a Baltic Porter smell so distinctive; I can tell you that it's a combination of black licorice, strong coffee, fumes of (fortified, port-like) fruity alcohol esters, mesquite smoke, chocolaty malts and an underlying cassis-like sweetness. Beyond that, there's obviously some intangibles - nothing smells quite like it.

In describing the flavour it wouldn't be untrue to say, simply for broad strokes purposes, that it has all the dark, chocolaty character typical of a beer its colour and strength. To leave it at that, however, would be grossly under-selling it: rich distinction comes of fortified but lush notes of black currant and plum, licorice and molasses, truffle and tartufo.

The brewer got it right going heavy on the toast, mild on the roast and smoke; the general public might be unable to distinguish this from a stout, but it has nowhere near the level of blackened roast and no ashy aftertaste what so ever. It is a strong but smooth and slightly sweet lager(!) with a drinkability, on a scale of 1 to 10, as high as its alcohol content (9.2%).

If you don’t already know, *this* is what a Baltic Porter is. I'm not sure what business this young, small, French-Canadian brewery has in showing up some of Eastern Europe's most established, vested brands but they've done it. This is a (if not, the) definitive example of a very complex, historic, hard to brew style of lager. Merci beaucoup, PeenSteen! (1,810 characters)

Pours a three finger tan head that fades quickly to a thin layer leaving some lace. Black color, no highlights, with some yeast left in bottle. Medium carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Smoky chocolate nose. Flavor is smoky chocolate and molasses. High ABV is hidden. $11.99 for a 750ml bottle from Beverage Warehouse Winooski, VT. (333 characters)

Bottle courtesy of freud, way back from CanBIF6 at the start of this summer. Shared with my girlfriend, poured into two tulip wine glasses. Vintage Automne 2009.

Poured a pitch black body, with a dark brown head. Three fingers of head, which settled to a fairly solid but thin layer, with no lacing to speak of. Aroma is where it's at. Very rich vanilla, milk chocolate and molasses. Sweeter side of things, and the alcohol is present. Taste is fantastic, leads with a rich chocolate and roasted malt, melding into a vanilla, molasses and chocolate show with maybe a hint of coffee bean to be found. Oh so complex. Girlfriend described it as a liquor filled dark chocolate; doesn't hit the nail right on the head, but I can see what she was getting at. Mouthfeel is full, smooth, rich and creamy. And this was dangerously drinkable, alcohol pops it's head in at the end of a sip but not enough to get the 10% on this puppy. Just unreal stuff here. 4/45/5/5/45

April 1/2012 - 2011 Vintage Nose: Nose has some molasses and a woody notes. Taste is lightly tart, some cherry, roast, light smoke caramel, molasses and coffee/mocha notes in the finish. Mouthfeel is thinner than I remember, fairly rich however. Sticky, dry and sweet. Less impressive than I can recall, but still tasty and complex nonetheless. Alcohol is much an afterthought. (1,339 characters)

Thanks to freud for this bottle.

Poured in to Duvel tulip.

A - Very dark brown colour with one finger of espresso coloured head. Higher carbonation than expected.

S - Intense aroma of dark fruit, chocolate and coffee up front with a nice sweetness that has hints of molasses and brown sugar. A very robust and very pleasant nose.

T - A complex palate full of dark fruit, coffee and a hint of cocoa. A nice sweetness compliments the palate with hints of caramel and molasses. The finish has a nice bitterness that lingers slightly making you want the next sip even more. As the beer warms up it opens up even more, offering more pronounced cocoa flavour as well as some licorice and toffee.

M - Medium body, lightly carbonated.

D - A truly remarkable beer. (765 characters)

A: Pours with a huge tan head over the deep, black liquid. Good retention & lacing.

S: Dark chocolate, black strap molasses, licorice, pumpernickel rye bread & alcohol that's readily apparent.

T: Black strap molasses, bakers chocolate, pumpernickel, licorice, roasted nut, good bitterness, warming alcohol.

M: Fairly full body is well-attenuated for its strength, with an off-dry finish. Perfect balance IMHO... just enough residual sweetness to keep the alcohol from being too drying.

D: Incredibly drinkable for its strength, but the strength is certainly prohibitive.

These guys do exceptional lagers... even at this weight! (632 characters)

Nice dark color with mocha head. Aroma is a bit faint. Just some dark malts and faint coffee and cacao. Taste is very weird. Reminds of a German dunkel but not a very good one. It’s just on the border between sweet and roasty but it’s not falling in any category. That doesn’t mean it’s balanced, it’s just... weird. Body is also on the medium-thin side showing it’s lager characteristic. I can’t say it was bad but I didn’t really enjoy it. (457 characters)

750ml corked and caged bottle poured into matching Porter Baltique glass I got with the gift pack

A more light would escape from a black hole then this beer she's black as black can be. the head is like a cola in both color and retention and there's no lace

S some mild coffee and like the bottle says I smell chocolate but very little booze and I get a heavy amount of dark fruits mostly cherry also stated on the bottle

T this is one awesome tasting beer, I got only mild coffee on the nose but more like espresso in the mouth. I get some smoke, licorice and some nice dark chocolates along with some dark fruits. I must admit I'm blown away by this one, the booze is very well concealed and the smell and the taste are quite different.

M nice and creamy with a bite to it that makes sure you know you are drinking a real beer, this bad boy coats your mouth too so your tasting it for some time after finishing it

D when you add all these thing up you get yourself one world class beer that I only wish was available in Alberta in single bottles. this beer is dangerous at 10%alc I could drink myself into a stupor with this one with ease.

I've said this a few times lately and I may say it again soon but this may be this best Canadian beer I've ever had. This perhaps turns my theroy that "the best Canadian beers are all from Quebec" into undoubted fact

Edit- I'm drinking the 2009 vintage today (Jan, 13, 2014) and its standing the test of time with no problems. Well worth the wait and I think this could stand up to another couple years of age without diminishing. My early reviews with high scores wouldn't get the same marks from me today today, this ones an exception. (1,690 characters)

Dark black colour with a creamy, dark tan head. Fair head retention.

Rich, malty, chocolatey coffee notes. Dark caramel and nutty notes. Like a good, sweet coffee.

Thick malt sweetness with a hint of chocolate. Caramel. Mild alcohol sweetness. A little over the top.

Full body with moderate carbonation. Good.

A decent baltic porter and really quite tasty. Thick, full flavoured and interesting. It is a touch sweet but that is good in it's own way. (453 characters)

750 ml bottle, 2011 vintage. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head. Head retention is good, and there's a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is very nice, it smells like roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate, dark fruit (cherries), smoke, and some coffee. The taste is similar to the aroma, the brew tastes like roasted malt, milk and bittersweet chocolate, tart cherries, plums, smoke, molasses, wood, and a bit of coffee. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's creamy and smooth, and has good, soft carbonation. I think this is a pretty good overall brew. I'd certainly buy it again. $12.99 a bottle, bought from Keg Liquors. (670 characters)
