    From brewwiki:

    Baltic Porter is a very high alcohol, sweet, robust porter that originated in the Baltic states. Baltic Porter reflects both the character of original British Porters and the character of sweeter, highly alcoholic Russian Imperial Stouts.

    The style started in the Baltic states of Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania, and also in Finland, Poland and Russia in the 18th century. It was derived from English porters that were introduced to the Baltics in the 18th century. However the higher alcohol content and sweet malty character shares much in common with more robust Russian Imperial Stouts. Baltic Porters were largely forgotten in the West until the fall of the Iron Curtain in the late 1980's when craft brewers reintroduced the style.

    Full bodied. Smooth. Aged alcohol warmth. Sweet, malty, roasted flavor that stops short of burnt. Med to low bitterness. Dark fruits, caramel, toffee or currant flavors add to complexity. Med to med-high carbonation. Traditional beer from countries bordering the Baltic Sea. A cross between English Porters influenced also by Russian Stouts. Rich malty sweetness with complex blend of deep malts.



    I wonder if it's color is closer to green or black?

    Rob, I definitely need a bottle of Chamberlain Pale Ale. He is one of my favorite military figures. Jeff Daniels portrayal of him in the film Gettysburg was outstanding.

    I love this speech from the film:

    I want to study Chamberlain. I think he could serve as a good example to my students regarding virtuous leadership, to say nothing of his example/inspiration to me.

    Every time I watch Gettysburg, I can't help but think I would follow Chamberlain anywhere, same with Winters in Band of Brothers.

    It is called Blood and Fire, Eric. Chamberlain's own account of Gettysburg. Only 60 pages and cost $6.95 ISBN 1-879664-17-8.
    Very interesting but rather leaves you wanting more.
    The other book I have is Stand Firm ye boys from Maine. by Thomas A Desjardin. covers the 20th and the Gettysburg campaign.

    I love this speech from the film:

    Yeah! But you got to remember that this speech was written by a screen writer. Does anybody know what he actually said. It might have been along the lines of-"If you guys don't move now I will have you all shot!"
    Just a thought.

    Just looked these up on amazon, and I saw more titles than I previously had seen.

    Rob, you might enjoy this site, and the site page referenced here has a complete book to read online: http://www.joshualawrencechamberlain.com/20me3.php

    George (CelticCat) and I shared a cider yesterday that was not sweet, much closer to the taste of beer. It wasn't bad.
