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°

Senka (421) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 15, 2014
You rarely see it outside Russia. This is a decent porter - medium bodied, hoppy, with loads of caramel malts. Pours dark brown, with creamy head. I actually miss that beer from times to times.

Poured into shaker. A reddy black with tan head and thick lace. Carbonation was soft, slick body. Aroma of coffee, raisin, and dark chocolate. Taste is dark chocolate, roasted malts, some vanilla. Bitters in the finish and the roasted malts get stronger. Overall a bit weaker tasting than some of the craft porters out there but I don’t say that as a negative. I was suprised by this one, much better than I was guessing it would be.

wimpyjoe (3552) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle @ St Petersburg Restaurant, Manchester. Dark but not black with a thin off-white head. It has a small fizz in the palate with a small burnt roasted malted aroma but a sugary sweetness for its taste.

500 ml glass-bottle Rating from somewhere before 2008
"Dieses Produkt besitzt ein Zertifikat des Grünen Kreuzes. Ohne Konservierungsmittel" steht auf der Rückseite. Was es nicht alles gibt… Immerhin ist das "Blaue Kreuz" für die Alkoholikerberatung zuständig und nicht das Grüne… ;)
Zutaten: Wasser, Helles-, Karamell- und Roggenmalz, Zucker, Hopfen.
Das Bier ist tiefschwarz im Glas. Kaffee und Röstmalz in der Nase, dabei angenehm malzig-süß. Das Bier ist mild-weich, süße Röstmalzaromen im Anfang. Zum Hauptteil setzt sich diese Note fort, wobei es etwas zu süßlich bei der Dickflüssigkeit ist. Schokolade, Kaffee. Der Nachgeschmack fällt erstaunlich schnell ab, ist aber trotzdem aromatisch und dickflüssig. Die 7% stören nicht all zu sehr, sind aber dennoch präsent. --> ordentlich!

Decent coffee like aroma with a nice head that doesn’t go anywhere, taste isnt bad but there is a metallic like note, and that helps this go down smooth, a tasty different porter.
