BJCP 2008 Guideline

Porter - Baltic Porter

BJCP 12C

BJCP 2008 12C Baltic Porter style example
12C - Porter / Baltic Porter

 

IMPRESSION

A Baltic Porter often has the malt flavors reminiscent of an English brown porter and the restrained roast of a schwarzbier, but with a higher OG and alcohol content than either. Very complex, with multi-layered flavors.

COMMENTS

May also be described as an Imperial Porter, although heavily roasted or hopped versions should be entered as either Imperial Stouts (13F) or Specialty Beers (23).

EXAMPLES
