Zlotta (241) - Bonn, GERMANY - MAY 14, 2015
0,5 l bottle from Klein Rusland in Amersfoort, bottled on 31/10/2014. Clear, very dark red to black with a medium large, creamy, slowly diminishing, tan head. Pleasant aroma of dark chocolate, currant, plums and cherries. Sweetish-fruity taste of dark chocolate, currant, cherries and plums. Short, just slightly bitter, toasted finish. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice and easy to drink, could still be a bit more intense or full-bodied.

Werckmeister (637) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - MAY 9, 2015
bottle at home bought at random russian store in Vienna. BB 13.05.2015. black color, small coffee-colored head. smells malty roasty, but also some malty sweetness, coffee, light chocolate, bit dusty, some dried fruits, very light smoke notes. medium body, very lively carbonation, rather light body but kinda heavy on the finish. light smoke notes, lightly sour, some malty sweet and roastiness, licorize, caramel. roasty / sweet / light sticky finish. OK, a bit too bitter sweet for my liking. Also feels a bit heavy on the finish. Probably freshness plays a role here, as bottle is close to BB-date.

Luvystypotables (958) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Subdued aroma of raosted malt, dark black color minimal head and carbonation. Taste of malt and smoke with an oily feel and an awful sweet malt finish.

gripweed57 (909) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 2, 2015
500 ml bottle. Translucent redish brown color. Big foamy tan head. Sweet roasted malt nose, reminiscent of licorice and soy sauce. Flavor is more of the same. Licorice and soy sauce with additional notes of sweet dark coffee. Mid taste has notes of whiskey and spicy hops., Finish is smooth and chocolaty. Dry winey aftertaste. Quite good.

sloshgator (533) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Baltika #6 might have a boring name, but the brew is good. Nice dark pour with a tan head. Moderate chocolate aroma. Taste is chocolatey with a hint of coffee. Very well executed porter. #6 is the good choice in a Russian restaurant.

kevinator (1229) - The Colony, Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2015
Nice strong Porter with toasty earth notes. Dark as expected with a full weighty palate. Good roasted malt flavor that could use a little more hop balance.

Silent (2) - ITALY - APR 24, 2015 does not count
Molto liquiriziosa e poco caffettosa, fresca nonostante la corposità. La adoro, e non sono un amante delle scure.
