Pours a crystal clear, medium brown; the color of strong pekoe tea. Sweet smells of warm pumpernickel, waffles. Taste is toasty with definite notes of rye/pumpernickel. Sweet caramel and toffee on the swallow. Medium body. Smell of rye malt really picks up as it warms a bit. This is an awesome beer! Definitely a euro-style dark lager and was not intended to be a Munich Dunkel. Style categories at this site are in serious need of correction/expansion.

Bottle - Clear brown colour, thin beige head, disappearing quickly. Toffee and rsted malts, no hops. Sweet malty taste with chocolate notes. Light body, average carbonation, sweet finish with roasted tones. Not so bad, but its boring.

dark "Baltika 4 Original" - with the addition of rye malt. I confirm that this beer! Four with caramel, bread, malt flavor and a touch of bitterness. I tried to tour the factory in Novosibirsk Baltika. Unfortunately in the shops we did not sell.

TorbenJensen (1280) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2015
This beer is loaded with good caramel malt, light chocolate tones and a slightly roasted malt character. Its hop bitterness is not as striking, but emphasizes malt notes with a long good aftertaste. Balance is okay and it is all in all a pleasant beer to drink.

jamaty (1436) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 8, 2015
Rojiza, clara. Abundante espuma. Aroma tostado y a fruta roja. Buen tono general y equilibrio entre cuerpo y carbónico, este ultimo marcado. Agradable sabor entre malta tostada y arándanos o casi mejor pacharán. Final ligeramente amargo. La mejor de las baltikas. Buena lager en un estilo poco común.
