Good stuff. Pours Stygian into the glass, not much of a head. Raw and moderately flavorful, a bit more rough than most Porters Iíve met, but thatís what I like about it. Had it with a leg of lamb and was a nice pairing. Served chilled in a frosted mug.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I tried at a Russian restaurant in Bogota, when itís poured in the glass whe can see a dark brown beer with a non persistent brown creamy foam head. The taste is quite good being evident the roasted malt flavor. The end is a little bit dry. As some porters canít be enjoyed if the weather starts to be hot so itís better if itís served cold.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
500 ml bottle, bought in Greece. Poured into a snifter at home. ABV 7%
Black colour on the body, with a tall and thick beige head. Very good retention, leaves light lacing on the glass.
Aroma of sweet chocolate at first, reveals much more as it starts to warm up a bit. Roasted malts appear now, pleasant hints of alcohol, faint vanilla.
Great taste. Chocolate at first with a touch of sweetness, gives very fast its place to roasted malts and coffee, along with a touch of alcohol. All those contribute to a nice mild bitter finish, with good duration.
Medium thick body and low carbonation. Quite dry palate.
Overall an excellent porter

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Strong molasses and dark chocolate aromas from a beautiful crystal clear garnet and brown body with a light tan head. The flavor tracks the aroma with even more chocolate and a light creaminess. Thereís a great roasted malt component thatís just charred enough to add a dryness to the flavor without being burnt or charcoal-like. The body is spot on for a porter, not to thick and not too thin. Thereís a light licorice taste that emerges and gets stronger in the finish. Lasting tastes of dark chocolate and coffee linger and make you want to take another sip. This is a top notch porter and beer all around.

Bottle. Pours black in colour, with a foamy beige head that leaves alittle lacing and aroma of roast malt, toffee, chocolate, dark fruits, yeast. Taste is sweetish malt with caramel, chocolate, coffee, raisin fruity notes and some biscuity bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, some residual sweetness through to a warming dry roasted bittter finish. Quite drinkable porter.

Bottle. I wasnít expecting much from this based on other Baltika beers Iíve had, but this one is decent. Very dark thick pour with a frothy off white head. Roasty with dark chocolate on the nose and taste. Medium to medium-heavy palate.
