Smuttynose Baltic Porter

Brewed By: Smuttynose Brewing Company Portsmouth, NH
Style: Baltic Porter
Availability: Year-Round
Alcohol by Volume: 9% ABV

I have nothing but good things to say about this beer. In fact, it’s actually my favorite baltic porter. This porter pours very dark, almost black. It bursts with chocolate and coffee flavors and aromas and has an almost perfect malt/hop balance. One gripe I do have with this beer is it’s availability. I have only been able to find it at the larger, established (warehouse-type) liquor stores. It has been extremely difficult to find at smaller (mom and pop) stores. At around $6 for 22 oz. it’s a little on the expensive side but well worth it for, in my opinion, the best baltic porter out there. I highly recommend this beer to anyone, regardless of their beer style preference. Overall Score: 10
