3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2011 Pours a clear, deep reddish-black with a short tan head that lasts and leaves moderate lace. Malty nose with cocoa and licorice all through this moderately sweet porter. Dark roast malt, cocoa, tea, dates, ripe plums and molasses all present. Medium carbonation, medium-light bodied. Sweetish finish with a faint resinous hops aftertaste.Balance is quite good, better than other Baltic Porters I’ve had.

Mooie porter uit Rusland. Donker eerst wat schuim maar snel naar bijna geen. Geheel iets waterig maar wel mooi

Poprawny porter, dość wytrawny jak na styl, z akcentami kawowymi i palonymi. Karmel nieco przykryty. Słabo za to przykryty alkohol. Polacy robią to lepiej.

Best by 10NOV13
Dark near black with little foam at all - not attractive really. Smells of raisin, malt, cocoa, and some toasted malts, kinda sweet but I like it. Bread, rye, more plum than anything, some toasted malts, some tobacco and a touch of turbinado. Medium on thin with low carb and an off dry finish. Overall not bad, I would drink again.

Bottle. Licorice driven aroma, earthy and roasted. Light in sweetness, light in bitterness, surprisingly also light in flavour. Decent, though lacking in depth.

Pours deep brown with a thick but fleeting foamy head with a tinge of red. Sweet, malty almost vinous aroma. Roasty, slightly sweet flavor. The maltose syrup is front and center here. The mouthfeel is a bit on the this side, but this is still pretty good.

Bottle 0.5. Color is black. Thick dense foam, long. Aroma of bread, caramel, roasted malt. Taste - a little coffee, black bread, but without a strong bitterness and a sweet aftertaste - great beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle from a Supermarket in St. Petersburg, very dark brown, almost black colour, frothy fully diminishing medium-sized beige head, very little lacing. Heavy roasted maltiness, with mild coffee, licorice and dark bread, moderate resiny and herbal hops and some notes of licorice and brown sugar. Taste is initially moderately sweet with a bit of bitterness and sourness. Finish is long and moderately bitter with moderately astringent feel with a hint of alcohol, full body, oily texture soft carbonation. Fairly tasty, but a bit too light for a proper porter.
