Near-opaque reddish-black beer with a beige head which quickly dissipates. Flavour is light and malty. After the disappointing pour and slightly tame smell the flavour was a very pleasant surprise with all sorts going on. An initial fruity hit is quickly balanced by toasty malts, bitter sugar and a liquorice finish. I don’t even really like liquorice but in this case it adds to a nice, varied flavour. Really good.

Ciemne piwo, w butelce półlitrowej, z wytłaczanymi napisami, herbem browaru prawdopodobnie. Duży plus do wyglądu. Piwo czarne, piana o małej fakturze, zostawia mały ślad na kuflu. Zapach karmelowy, trochę syropu owocowego z początku, wyczuwalny aromat ciemnej czekolady, aczkolwiek czuć alkoholem. Piwo ma "ciało" nieduże aczkolwiek wyczuwalne, średnio gazowane, w miarę długi finisz goryczkowy. Relacja cena-jakość moim zdaniem bardzo dobra, kupiłem we włoszech w rosyjskim sklepie a cena taka jak nieznośne włoskie koncerniaki. Bardzo porządne piwo po które z przyjemnością sięgnę kolejnym razem, dobrze będzie rozgrzewało w zimę.

Bamsen78 (3569) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2014
Bottle, wholeheartedly recommended by McTapps and procured by MiP in a Russian shop in Lübeck. Pours hazy very dark brown with airy tan head. Dark aroma of caramel malt, with notes of roast and smoky and fruity touches. Sweetish flavour of caramel malt and fruit, with notes of roast, hops and smoke. Bitter and slightly roasty aftertaste. Maybe a little too lively carbonation for the style, but overall a very decent beer.

Nice porter-ish appearance. Aroma is 50/50 of porter and pilsener. Tastes something like a Belgian mixed with a porter.

loco_gallego (172) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 21, 2014
Bune noire, mousse marron claire bien persistante. Peu de lacings. Toastage chocolat-café, sucrée. Houblonnage peu perceptible au nez. En bouche pareil, par contre légère amertume donnant de la longueur et rondeur. Mais rien d’exceptionnel. Fin de bouche plutôt sucrée.

Deep brown color, little sweet aroma, but taste is empty and plain, low body, not enough malt in taste. Its way too overrated. Maybe longtime ago it was good baltic porter but now its not.

By far their best offering! This porter actually goes down like a stout and definitely has the mouthfeel of one. Very rich and roasty!

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear, very dark, ruby brown with a good 1/2" tan head cover, swirls and sheets of lace. Nice aroma of sweet malt. Tasted is lightly toasted malt that becomes more malty in the palate, adding light bittering in a nice long finish that isn’t finished until a litlle caramel seeps back in. A traditional brew, but a solid brew. Above the other Baltika offerings.
