I grabbed a chilled six pack of this Baltic Porter and found that it is a lagered porter which was interesting. It has a 6.8% ABV.

Look-It pours a dark brownish black with little to no head and some drooping wet lacing if any.

Smell-It smells of toffee and sweet bread.

Taste-It tastes of toffee, mocha, cocoa beans, hints of licorice, briny malts, and a similar flavor overtone of an oyster stout. It almost has like a sweet malty start and then a mild bitter finish, but is well-balanced.

Mouthfeel-It feels smooth and moist with a light tingle from the carbonation. It is a bit thin, but finishes like a cola.

Overall-I’d say that this is a great beer. It is a new style to me and I enjoyed it. Cheers!

Quick review. Not a huge porter fan, but this is solid. Relatively low gravity here, makes for an easy-drinking dark beer.

Appearance: Poured solid brown with off white/tan head
Smell: licorice, malts (light), slight hops, carob
Taste: hint of malt, and an odd (but not unpleasant) salty, metallic taste akin to an oyster stout. Well balanced flavors of malt, hop though at an intensity level more similar to a brown ale or lager. Ends sweet – salty with a clean finish
Mouthfeel: heavier than a lager, but thinner than your typical porter, hint of carbonation
Overall: a pleasant mix of attributes from a good lager, the maltiness of a porter and the saltiness of an oyster stout. Good with chicken, bbq or any grilled meats – palate cleansing and not so powerful as to overwhelm your meal.

1/14...pours very dark brown with some white foam. Coffee nose, faint, little bitter. Strong coffee bitter flavor. Some grittiness. Smooth chocolate coffee all around. Very good.
