What Redoak Boutique Beer Café Baltic Porter 2006 says about itself (beer blurb or commercial description):
Redoak Baltic Porter has been brewed true to style and is a rich tasting beer with a velvet smoothness on the palate, a burnt currant fruitiness, followed by a warmth embrace of alcohol. This beer style originated in Russia for Catherine the Great in the Royal Court in the 17th century. David first tasted a Baltic porter in 1994 in a small café in Poland and no-one seemed to know what it was. Internationally, it was a lost style until discovered by Michael Jackson (the Beer expert) in 1997.

This user said that this beer was of the style: Baltic Porter, and colour: dark

This Australian Baltic Porter is an astounding beer. At the start is a gorgeous mellow toffee flavour with some port and sweet curranty. This finishes candy with an exceptional sweet toffee and some dark fruity sherbett.

On the palate, there is a sort of sweet candy curranty with mellow molasses, and on the tongue are overtones of sherbett and a dark, sweet toffee. It is a very sweet beer (but with remarkable balance), not too carbonated and exquisitely full-bodied.

It has only average head retainment, but is more than made up for by its dark mystique and outstanding aroma of sweet candy molasses, dark fruits and hints of sherbett. The texture is overall smooth and mild.

This was my official 7000th different ale, which was why my dad and I made decision to try it. I'm glad we did, because it came in at number 2 in the chart. $25 is a little over the top for such a small bottle, and baltic porters tend to be very cheap, but at least we've tried another of the world's best beers.
