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°

Nice baltic porter-I like porters a bit roastier, but its very smooth and great for the price.

Dorqui (2150) - Brescia, ITALY - APR 7, 2005
Creamy foam but not much persistent one. Dark brown color, nearly black. Much dense and impenetrable. Discreet scent, detaches scents of coffee and bitter chocolate. Dry and lightly fizzy taste, much bitter. Burnt wood and smoke are perceived in the end.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2005
Deep, dark red, almost black with a loose thick tan head. Aroma of chocolate, raisen, some wet cardboard, a little vanilla. Good body, extra clean and smooth with a light but lingering chocolate with a little licorice finish. Delicate roast and dark fruit flavor. Quite nice.

csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - APR 5, 2005
16.9oz bottle. 62° out of the cellar. Served in a pint glass. Dark brown/black color with red tints and a small tan head. The aroma is roasty with some definate fruitness coming from the hops. Smells good, but a bit weak. The taste is roasty malt that transitions into a nice hops flavor with a touch of bitterness. The hops taste citrusy. The finish is dry and roasty, with an almost espresso quality. It seems to lack the lactic flavor that seems to be present in most baltic porters, instead it seems like a regular american porter with a good helping of hops. The mouthfeel is big, but not too big, and is about average for the style. This is a good beer that blows its sibling, #4, out of the water.

green (186) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 4, 2005
Cellar Temp. Opaque black with diminishing head. Very light aroma. Also lightly flavors. Has a bit of a cola note. Reasonably interesting roasted malt profile. Well balanced and drinkable.

yayforbeer (753) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2005
Very dark brown, almost black, with a nice tan head which fades. Aroma is malt and molasses. Excellent roasty flavor with notes of chocolate, dark malts, molasses, and a faint bitterness. Full body and silky mouthfeel. Gains points for low price. This is an excellent beer.

dwyerpg (4918) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 23, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2006 Smells and looks great; nice tan head like a stout. This beer also a sting of bitterness to it - also stoutish. But the sweetness is still definitely there. Excellent beer, best Baltika for sure.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 20, 2005
Bottle. Pours dark brown and opaque with faint garnet highlights when held to light. A large tan head fades slowly and leaves some lacing. Aroma is sweet, dark malts, molasses, herbs and dark bread. Sweet and slightly tart, a bit of burnt sugar and dandelion. Medium to full body and gentle carbonation. Definitely interesting and pretty nice.

Crash (532) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2005
Pours black with tiny fizzy off-white head. Aroma is malty towards bread. Flavor is a combination of sweet with a small amount of bitter. The finish is fizzy metallic.
