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. There’s a great roasted malt component that’s 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. There’s 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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 from ABC beers. Poured a deep mahogany with a frothy light tan head. The aroma is roasted malt and coffee. The flavour is medium bitter, dark chocolate, roasted malt and coffee. A super value beer which is becoming more widely available.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. I wasn’t expecting much from this based on other Baltika beers I’ve 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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle from Hampton Falls Village Market. Nice dark pour with thin white head on an English pint glass. Nose is chocolate malt, molasses and charred malt. Taste is dry roast, notes of coffee, bitter chocolate with a finish that lingers a moderate duration. Body is a tad on the thin side but that’s not being negative. Really easy to drink and is decent for the style.

A decent porter. A bit too sweet for my taste, but with a nice thick Russian touch.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2013 Poured from bottle to glass. Black pour with decent head that quickly faded. Little lacing. Looked like a cola as it poured. Aroma of malt, alcohol, vanilla. Taste malt, roast, vanilla, licorice, raisin, molasses. More sweet than bitter, but nicely so. Full body, creamy sticky texture. Nice lively carbonation. Long fizzy finish. Really great for the price ($1.99). Will definitely get this again and shall be trying other Baltika products!
