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°

Ungstrup (33459) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2003
A black beer with a very small brown head, that disappears very fast. The aroma is sweet with notes of licorice - no smoke, like I'd expect from a Porter. The flavor is mild at first, then a slightly smokey sweetness hits you - then it becomes watery and finally it ends on an OK bitter note. It is not a good beer because of the mild start and the watery middle. I've had porters far better than this and Baltika 1, 4 and 8 are better too.

Brown-black coloured. Like the rest of Baltic-Beverage holding’s breweries’ beer it is sweet and rather unclean. Less full bodied than most Baltic porters. Big raisin flavour.

Served with a straw at our favorite place in Bishkek, but only available one night. Tasty sweetish and complex porter, better than we expected. Seek this one out as a better alternative to the others.
