kidmartinek (3559) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 16, 2013
Dark, translucent, deeply-tinted red, amber lager. You can pour it with half a pint of head but that settles to a 3/16" film before you can make it from the kitchen out to the back deck. The aroma is decidedly malty. The flavor is trashy dark malt, "stainless" steel, and bad, read gummy. The aroma becomes very gummy shortly after warming as well. Mouthfeel follows. I might be sick. Damnnit. Lacking professionalism anymore, I don’t feel compelled to finish it. Id have to be way deeper in than I am now to think any more highly of this Russian bunk.

Standard east European dark beer. Caramal malt and some light use of rye. Decent, not special.

Zarkam (375) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 6, 2013
500ml bottle from supermarket in Vyborg, clear brown colour, small rocky beige head. Slightly roasty aroma of rye bread, caramel with notes of spruce and raisins, taste is slightly sweet with some sourness and alcohol. Soft carbonation, medium body, mildly sweet and boozy aftertaste. Quite drinkable and even somewhat interesting, especially for a Russian macrobrew.

Half liter bottle - pours amber with khaki head. Nose is caramel and floral hops. Candy sugar and slight roast added when sipped. Sweet. Light medium body. Easy to drink despite the excessive sweetness. Glad I tried it.

jjsint (665) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2013
Slightly insipid copper brown appearance. No head, too much carbonation. Aroma strong on caramel, toffee and vanilla. Taste is unbalanced, going from something unpleasant to alcohol to pure sweetness. Sweetly pleasant aftertaste. You never know what you’re going to get from Baltika, but this one’s ok except for the jarring first taste.
