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. Dark pour. Lots of brown head, even in bottle. Malty nose. Notes of raisin and chocolate balanced with bitter malt and the slightest hint of bitterness from whatever hop they use (the hop carries a distinctly eastern European taste).

This is by far the best ’Baltika’, and i don’t know why. The other just don’t make it for my taste. The red one is a disaster for example (nr9). This one surprisingly is a very good porter with a light taste. Very very nice !

This porter has very distinctive malt flavorings. It is a dark beer with caramelized malt and light to medium hops. The taste is rich and deep, as a porter should be.

ruigo (1244) - PORTUGAL - MAY 14, 2014
Shared a 50cl bottle from the local Russian shop. Pours a deep dark brown colour, almost black, with a small tan head. Aroma is coffee, date, chocolate, caramel and liquorice. Soft to average carbonation and medium to light body. Taste is medium bitter passing a light sweet and finishing in long dry and sweet notes. Overall, a surprising beer, quite light but tasteful.
