Commercial Description

Smoked Baltic Porter is the sultry sister of a storied style. Brewed with traditional German malts and hops, this dark lager gets its special twist from a hefty addition of Bamberg smoked malt. This smoldering, medium-bodied lager is sure to please. Smoked Baltic Porter is smooth, smoky and dark…mysterious enough yet? 6.2% ABV

    Smoked, deeply toasted malt, bittersweet chocolate.

    Smooth and creamy, and since it’s a lager, the mouthfeel is lighter than you might expect. The hops don’t get in the way at all, leading to a slightly dry bitter chocolate finish.The smoke is there, but it’s not overpowering. In fact, I wonder how much it would be noticed if I didn’t know the name of the beer.

    Overall, pretty nice!

    [Best served in a Dimpled Mug]

    The pour was a dark non-transparent black with a slight mahogany hue and had an average sized (1-2 finger) light brown creamy head that had decent retention thus leaving behind some good spotty sticky lacing.

    The aroma was not overly strong although the first thing I did notice was the scent of smoke, then a whiff of some burnt chocolate malts, a mild resin hop and a nice heavy dose of a leathery yeast with mild hints of coffee and molasses.

    The taste was very malty and a tiny bit sweet with a touch of chocolate and a hint of molasses at first then slowly progressed into a mild bitterness with a nice coffee note and a mild smoky finish. The flavor lasted a nice ling time allowing the robust dark Porter flavor to linger on and on for full enjoyment.

    Mouthfeel was somewhere in the middle of medium and full in body with the texture being creamy and a little dry with a very soft carbonation.

    Overall a fantastic Porter with just a slight touch of smoke, actually more in the aroma than the taste.
