Dominion Brewings Baltic Porter

Dominion Baltic Porter is brewed to meet your need for warmth on a cold winter’s night. Hints of licorice, toffee & chocolate mingle with a touch of Rye giving our Porter a full-bodied taste. Raise your mug to those who were bold enough to brave the Baltic!

  • 6.8% Alc/vol
  • German Pilsner, Crystal & Dark Specialty malts
  • Pairs well with grilled meats, hearty stews & even chocolate
  • Serve in a mug, tulip glass or pint glass at 45-50ºF

APPEARANCE

The Baltic Porter pours a dark, dark brown with a thin garnet edge. The small head faded slowly and showed tremendous retention as it ended in a glass clinging lace.

AROMA

Right away, even before pouring it into the glass, the porter gives off strong roasted malt notes. Behind the dominate aroma are subtle chocolates and caramels.

TASTE

Just like the nose, the taste is dominated by the roasted malt. I was a bit surprised by it’s up front character, but the flavors quickly grew on me and played well with the chocolates and caramels. The finish has some slight hoppiness, but not enough to make a dent in the roasted malt.
