"this dark lager gets its special twist from a hefty addition of Bamberg smoked malt."
Note that Baltic Porters are often fermented with lager yeast.

Bottled on August 6th 2010.Nice to see this brand new offering from GDB here in Greensboro so quickly.Poured into my Red Oak pint glass a deep chocolate brown with a one finger tan colored head that lasted quite long leaving a smattering of lace as it settled pretty slowly.Aromas are lighter on the smoke with much more molasses,chocolate, and roast.Flavors of sweet molasses,bitter chocolate,and dark roast coffee hit well from the onset,the smoke comes thru in a lingering finish.A little on the light side but its quite drinkable,subtle smoke,maybe not enough for me but its quite good.

On-tap at the brewery during the beer's release party.
A: Deep mahogany, but not quite black. A dense and soapy cream head has nice retention and leaves a bit of lace.
S: Chocolate, molasses and a hint of smoke make up most of the nose. There's a light scent of lemon and pepper in the background.
T: Molasses and a pronounce smokiness are out front. Some bittersweet baking chocolate and molasses is along for the ride. Bitterness is very light. Finishes with a slight astringency and lingering caramelized sugar flavors.
M: The medium body is sticky and has very little carbonation. The beer's weak spot.
D: This is a nice Baltic. The smoked malts add a nice touch. My favorite of the two beers at the party.

On tap at GD for their release party of this brew and Rumble.
A solid offering from GD using Bamberg smoked malt. Compared to the Alaskan Smoked Porter, this one is light...but then again so are most others.
Pours Dark brown, reddish/ruby tints along the edge. The blending of the reddish and brown kinda makes the edge look like cola. The head is soft, off white, and a bit sparse. It leaves a small ring as it drinks, some lacing.
Aroma doesn't scream 'smoked' to me. Still, the smoked malt is there and plays well with some dark fruit and light molasses.
Flavor consists of some black plum, faint chocolate and distant smoke. The body is a bit thin which doesn't accentuate the flavors much. It lacks richness or depth or something. This is almost more like a dark, but light Rauchbier. I had this twice to make sure, and the body is thin. The feel isn't smooth, but it's not biting enough for the style methinks. The alcohol doesn't come into play and is a touch low for the style; according to BA. I'm glad I had this one first. If I had the Rumble first, this one would be overpowered.
