3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Ótima baltic porter russa. Cor escura, corpo médio com boa formação de creme bege, pouco persistente. Aroma de malte torrado, café, na boca sobressaindo o gosto intenso do malte, lembrando chocolate. Bom amargor, equilibrando a mistura. Final sedoso, com médio amargor. Ótima breja!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
1 pint .9fl oz Bottle: Pours deep brown w/ a nice brown head. Aroma is dominated by sweet malts w/ some caramel peeking through & a bit of grain. Flavor is heavy on the roasted malts. A bit on the sweet-side up front then a nice bitter bite. Caramel & burnt coffee w/ a little nip of alcohol present. Nice & smooth, me likey.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear, deep reddish-black with a short tan head that lasts. Malty nose with licorice all through this rather sweet porter. Dates, ripe plums and molasses all present. Medium carbonation, medium-bodied. Sweet finish with a faint resinous hops aftertaste. If they could make this drier, introduce some hop flavors, and keep the licorice, I’d love it. But then it would be Coopers Extra Stout!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bune noire, mousse marron claire bien persistante. Peu de lacings.
Toastage chocolat-café, sucrée. Houblonnage peu perceptible au nez.
En bouche pareil, par contre légère amertume donnant de la longueur et rondeur. Mais rien d’exceptionnel. Fin de bouche plutôt sucrée.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours dark brown with a minimal beige head. Sweet malt aroma with chocolate and light hops. Smokiness and light fruity finish with a touch of bitterness. A most enjoyable brew.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle - Black brownish colour with creamy white fizzy frothy. Quite a weak taste for a porter but not unpleasant in anyway. Slightly too carbonated.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I tried at a Russian restaurant in Bogota, when it’s poured in the glass whe can see a dark brown beer with a non persistent brown creamy foam head. The taste is quite good being evident the roasted malt flavor. The end is a little bit dry. As some porters can’t be enjoyed if the weather starts to be hot so it’s better if it’s served cold.

Bottle. I was at a Russian rock show so I thought this would be appropriate to drink there. This beer is definitely one of the best Baltikas out there.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2005 (bottle) I was quite impressed by this. An aroma that I can only describe as chocolately-grapey. A flavor that stayed with me from the time my lips touched it to the time I swallowed - very consistent. Quite yummy. I wish I’d had another one.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown with some red shown under light. The aroma is malt with a hint of licorice. The taste was initially that of a pleasant coffee followed quickly by the bittering hops and a sweet chocolate aftertaste. Thick tan head and active carbonation.
