Pours very dark ruby red (black to the eye) with a tall, fluffy beige-brown head that dissolves into lace. Aromas are rather bright, with notes of grass, caramel and yeast. The taste is at first light and sweet, but works into a more robust, complex end wth an aftertaste of baker’s chocolate, molasses and prunes. The fruitiness at the end tends towards acidity. A multifaceted and enjoyable Baltic porter.

Pours clear dark brown with a two finger tan head. The nose is bitter chocolate and vinous, with a tiny hint of dark fruit. the flavor is ruled by a vinous bitter flavor touched by dark fruits and possibly chocolate. Overall a complex flavor and a good beer, but I don’t have a milestone to compare it to.

Dark, good looking brew belies the danger that waits underneath. Tastes very thick with and almost licorice schnappes flavoring. Unfortunately, the bile like after taste ruins the whole experience and it just gets worse the more you drink.

johntreeter (126) - Greenwood, Indiana, USA - JUN 17, 2008
16.9oz. bottle. Pours a very deep amber with .5in. short lived tan head that left minimal lacing. Aroma of sweet malt, light milk chocolate notes. Taste is a little sweet for me with flavors of milk chocolate, dark fruits, and cane surgar. Medium to heavy on the body with an almost syrurpy texture and light carbonation. Not bad just too sweet for my taste.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2007 this porter is the best of all the porters we tested from the former Soviet Union countries... rich, smooth, chocolaty and not as syrupy sweet as some of the others from those countries

Bottle. Wow, I am surprised by the low ratings from the top raters. I thought this beer would have rated higher. Loved this darkly poured thick, aromatic, and flavorful beer. Raisins, plums, malty sweetness that I (and my wife) thoroughly enjoyed!

dbhenry (120) - El Paso, Texas, USA - MAY 19, 2014
This porter has very distinctive malt flavorings. It is a dark beer with caramelized malt and light to medium hops. The taste is rich and deep, as a porter should be.

joemacaluso (119) - Prairieville, Louisiana, USA - FEB 7, 2005
Good because it is a porter, actually a good type of porter. Not too sweet, not too roasted barley tasting, good in between style of porter. Good after dinner drink.

Rotorhead87 (119) - Temple, Texas, USA - JAN 26, 2008
Pours nearly black with a largish tan head. Kinda an odd porter, I can’t quite put my finger on it, but something was just a bit weird about it. Still a good solid brew, though.

portermax55 (118) - Canterbury, Connecticut, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Bottle into pint glass. Pours a deep, dark brown color with a thin tan head that dissipates over time. Heavy aromas of roasted malts, caramel, spice and slight hints of sweet fruit. Flavor is of caramel, molasses, some coffee, and spice with a bitter fruit finish. Mouthfeel is smooth and velvety with average carbonation. Not a bad brew.
