Porterhouse's version of a Baltic Porter was on tap around October 11th, 2008. They served it to me in a Oskar Blues pint glass.

This Baltic Porter poured an alomst black deep dark mahogany brown with quite a few ruby red highlight along the sides. On top of this beer was a good looking tan 1/2 an inch head of foam. This head of foam had pretty good retention that left behind a spotty tan film, foamy tan rings along the edges, and one sigle streak of tan lace around the glass.

The smell of this beer was lightly dark and roasted with dark roasted malts, a splash of sweet caramel, a hint of plum, and then the aroma finishes up with sweet banana bread. It started off nice, but when weird on me when it started to wrap things up.

The taste was all about the roasted malts. Other than the malts, there wasn't much else to the taste. Even when the beer warmed up quite a bit, there still wasn't much hiding in this beer. The only other flavors I got hiding behind the malts, was a subtle touch of sweet caramel, a hint of dark fruits, and a speck of roasted coffee beans. It tasted like they needed to increase the roasted flavors.

This was more of a medium bodied beer with little carbonation and a mild roasted aftertaste of dark roasted malts, yeast, and roasted coffee beans.

Not a bad Baltic Porter, but to me it needed to be a lot more chewy and with a lot roasted flavors. If I ever see Baltic Porter ever again on tap, I might get it to see if it was just that one pint. It's clearly worth a shot if you see it because it's a fresh Baltic Porter.
