COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional dark beer based on old recipes. "Baltika" brews this beer with the best dark and light malts with the addition of superior hop types and a special strain of yeast. Crystal-clear water and the secret touch of "Baltika"'s brewers make this a beer of unsurpassable quality.
The ingredients are water, caramel malt and burnt roasted malt, maltose syrup and hops. 17°

Bottle. Nice deep dark brown in color with a tan head. Clean tasting and malty. Not too much malt thought, very faint. Dry in finish. Decent beer.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - AUG 8, 2004
0.5 l bottle. Pours a nice deep brown, tan head. Clear. Aroma is clean with a faint malty roasty note. Flavor is rather shallow, with some maltiness, but not the depth that you would want or expect. Dry finish. OK but I want more.character...

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2010 Dark brown with reddish tints and towering creamy lasting head. Sweet chocolaty with a distinct raisin/winey flavor. Long malty finish with a full body. Notes of asphalt creep in near the end. A fine full-flavored porter.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 5, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2005 (Bottled) Very dark red color with medium, beige, lacy head. Burned-malty, slightly sweet but equally roasty aroma with a hint of licorice. Sweetish, very roasted-malty, dark chocolate flavor with coffee and anise hints. Medium to full-bodied, syrupy, velvety, soft-carbonated palate. A very nice, well-balanced, high-quality porter - delicious! Something between Sinebrychoff Porter and Ayinger Celebrator.

Pours almost black with a firm creamy brown head. Sour toasty chocolate malt nose. Big chocolate and sour goodness. Piles of malt and brown sugar. Citric finish with some sweet and sour yeastiness.

Quetzalcoatl (153) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 29, 2004
Very nice porter. Has a great roasted taste, coffee and malt. Looks just like a porter should. Has a nice smooth aftertaste, with just enough hops to make this very nicely balanced.

Firefaery (19) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 26, 2004
Has a nice head like Balck & Tan, more foam like, not quite frothy. Has a hint of bitter dark chocolate and malty flavor. Thick richness and smooth finish. Never had Russian beer before. This is a pretty good brew.

CamdenD (1076) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 21, 2004
One of my favorite porters yet. A great bite to this porter that differentiates it from a stout (imperial). Baltika’s other beers have not impressed me, but this one is fantastic. A bit hoppy and crisp, yet at the same time forceful and full. Fantastic porter, highly recommended.
