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°

This is a baltic porter as a baltic porter should look, smell and taste. Deeply reed color, fine brown foam. A bit unbalanced aroma but fine bouquet. Taste a bit edgy but fine with food and fine to sip infront of the logfire.

I like the Baltic Porters that I have tried, so one named "Baltika" had high expectations. I was only slightly let down by this dark watery porter. Big anice and sweet malts were the main notes overall. There is an odd aftertaste, but it may be the same carboard/grainy hops used in some of the other Baltikas.

I had no prior knowledge on this beer when I picked up the bottle for $1.99 USD at a Jersey liquor store. Very surprised how well this beer was; adequate aroma (licorice), jet black color with ample tannish head, and a great mouthfeel. My tastebuds were well pleased with the dark roasted malt flavor, and hop aftertaste.

ElGaucho (2240) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAR 22, 2003
Sweet aroma with strong hints of alcohol. Opaque body with light brown head. Some lace; almost fully, albeit slowly, eroding head. Nice flavor-surprisingly good. Better than the Baltika 4. Alcohol is evident, but not overbearing. A little bit on the creamy side.

Smooth, Nice finish, excellent color. Typical Porter with lots of sweetness, but less of the medicine taste often found in Porters.

skortila (4619) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAR 18, 2003
Burned malty nose. Black coloured, brown head which dies quickly. Burned malty taste, moderate bitter. Boring beer.

Best beer we tasted on tap. Usually you bring your own jar (as in jamjar). This one is dark in colour, but only slightly malty on the tastebuds.

Darkover (1518) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 4, 2003
Dark brown with a big brown head. Aroma of malt and something I don't recognize. Flavor is slightly burnt and tootsie roll like.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - MAR 1, 2003
Rich sweet and strong. Creamy brown head, firm body, tons of chocolate malt, slightly hoppy.

Dark, with sweet and smoky aroma. Flavor is richly sweet, with liquorice and plums. Really nice.
