Bamsen78 (4445) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2014
Bottle, wholeheartedly recommended by McTapps and procured by MiP in a Russian shop in Lübeck. Pours hazy very dark brown with airy tan head. Dark aroma of caramel malt, with notes of roast and smoky and fruity touches. Sweetish flavour of caramel malt and fruit, with notes of roast, hops and smoke. Bitter and slightly roasty aftertaste. Maybe a little too lively carbonation for the style, but overall a very decent beer.

Bricks (761) - Delaware, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Nice porter-ish appearance. Aroma is 50/50 of porter and pilsener. Tastes something like a Belgian mixed with a porter.

loco_gallego (217) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 21, 2014
Bune noire, mousse marron claire bien persistante. Peu de lacings. Toastage chocolat-café, sucrée. Houblonnage peu perceptible au nez. En bouche pareil, par contre légère amertume donnant de la longueur et rondeur. Mais rien d’exceptionnel. Fin de bouche plutôt sucrée.

magicmn (123) - Moscow, RUSSIA - DEC 21, 2014
Deep brown color, little sweet aroma, but taste is empty and plain, low body, not enough malt in taste. Its way too overrated. Maybe longtime ago it was good baltic porter but now its not.

By far their best offering! This porter actually goes down like a stout and definitely has the mouthfeel of one. Very rich and roasty!

rondphoto (2938) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - DEC 6, 2014
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear, very dark, ruby brown with a good 1/2" tan head cover, swirls and sheets of lace. Nice aroma of sweet malt. Tasted is lightly toasted malt that becomes more malty in the palate, adding light bittering in a nice long finish that isn’t finished until a litlle caramel seeps back in. A traditional brew, but a solid brew. Above the other Baltika offerings.
