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 was more like a schwarzbier than a porter. It poured black with a tan head. The aroma was malty and thick. The body is full and the taste is packed with dried fruit flavors and a bit of a coffee note with an ample bitterness on the end. Its a bit like a holiday fruit cake. I will drink this beer again.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2016 500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. First Baltic porter Ive tried. Pours black with a large beige/tan head. Aroma of roasted burnt malts was pretty much all I got, some caramel and dark chocolate too. Taste was pretty much the same. Roasted/burnt finish with some bitterness.

De las cervezas que más me han gustado últimamente. No son fáciles de conseguir en México pero espero que la sigan importando. Aquí no tenemos mucha variedad.

Black color and brown medium head. Aroma is not strong, but I can feel the wood and toasted malt. On the palate it is complex, full and with long finish. Good Porter!

Shared my bottle with a few friends at a Labor Day party. Poured a very nice dark brown with tan head. Fluffy head lasted longer than I had expected. Aromas were some chocolate, but the taste fell a bit with some metallic aftertastes.

I wasnt expecting such a heady game-changing beer as what I got, especially on the other side of the earth. As black as sin with no head at all (a minus in my book). Aromas of dark chocolate mud cake, rich caramel, carob (I hate carob), cinnamon, lush vanilla extract and dates. Its there for the taking in terms of smell. Flavour is an exercise in similarity with aroma but with a reminder of a much richer background. It has a great deal going on with the overall impression being one of rich, sweet dessert beer that is going to send my blood-sugar haywire. Is it worth it? Probably. Probably.

Bottle: Dark black color with beige head that quickly dissipates. The aroma is roasted malts. The flavor is coffee, anise, burnt toast and dark chocolate. It has a slight bitterness and a little bit of alcohol.
