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°

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUN 1, 2005
Bottle. I admit I was less than thrilled to drink this, but I was pleasantly surprised. I was expecting a cross between a bad lager and a bad N/A, but it was anything but that. Pours a thick, opaque black with an aroma of molasses and licorice. The taste follows suit with the aroma, with the added bonus of a hint of chocolate. All in all, not a bad beer but nothing to write home about.

Enniskillen (2044) - Salinas, California, USA - MAY 29, 2005
The current rating fits this beer pretty well. Overall better then a lot of beers, but lacks in the style. Body is thin and uneventful. Notes of chocolate, roasted malts, and licorice.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - MAY 29, 2005
Bottle. Dark body with a thin head. Notes of coffee, grapes, CO2, and dry hops. Very very sharp taste. The finish is full of roast and metal. That costs it points. Sweet like grape juice. Not too bad.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - MAY 12, 2005
Bottle poured black with a smallish head. Light aroma of roasty malts. Flavor is a bit thin, but the roast and chocolate hints are evident along with a metalic aftertaste. Not bad.

16.9 Fl. Oz. Best Before 26.09.05 Awesome. Poured with a nice long lasting beige head. Started at about an inch then faded to 1/4 in. Clung to the sides of the glass. Dark brown with garnet highlights. Aroma: Dark chocolate, rasins, and caramel. No hops. All malt baby. Alcohol. Taste: Reminds me a lot of one of the Reisen candys. Subtle sweetness, with some dark chocolate and coffee. Some hop bitterness. Very easy to drink. Palate: Med-full body. Carbonation level give a very ’mouth-fillng sensation. Overall: Outstanding nightcap. I think I may start keeping a couple of these around the house. At 7%, its just enought to enjoy the full pint and give you that sleepy feeling.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAY 2, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2008 [bottle - 500 ml] Dark black pour with a thick tan head. Very opaque. Smells like burnt chocolate and malts with a touch of spice and a bit of hop bitter. The taste begins with a burnt flavor that goes to a smooth malty middle and a slightly dry and cardboardy aftertaste. The alcohol is very warming and apparent. All around decent porter.

cfranz (261) - Acton, Massachusetts, USA - APR 29, 2005
Pours black, with a small off-white head. Not a bad porter, though it does has that "strained through cardboard" aftertaste endemic to many Russian beers. Definitely has a strong kick to it. I can imagine myself drinking this at a kiosk on Nevsky Prospekt.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 29, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2005 (Bottle 50 cl) Completely black and opaque. Small, dense light-brown head. Extremely burned notes, dry and very aromatic - spicy. A very solid Porter with lots of character and alcohol. Excellent. 210704
