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°

Pours a very dark brown with a dark tan/light brown head that soon dissappears to a mere brown lacing. Very artificial cocoa aroma. Flavor also pretty weak overall, tastes more like a brown ale than a porter. Definitely the type of beer I usually go for, but I really can’t recommend it over others of its class.

Bottle in Tomsk (Siberia). Jet black with some head to it. Smells roasted. The flavor is a bit too bitter in the roasted grains for my tastes.

Bottle from Liquor Barn, poured into a pint glass. Dark brown with good sized beige head. Medium body and molasses plus roasted malt aroma. Licorice and alcohol notes in the flavor, finish is brief and malty.

1 pt 9 oz bottle. Nice and dark, creamy head that lasts a while, not an overpowering aroma, and smooth drinkability. And 7.0% to boot. I think I should have got more than one bottle of this. I’m likin’ it.

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2008 Bottle, Light cookie aroma with a definite tinge of alcohol. They can keep this beer in Russian. Not worthy of a average of 3.49. This beer basically sucks. Do not believe the hype.

Pours dark brown black with a nice beige head. Nose has quite a bit of dark fruit could be mistaken for a belgian. Palate follows suite, with caramel malt, more dark fruit and the slightest hint of choc/coffee dark malt. Also a bit of licorice. Certainly worlds away from others of the style: zywiec, okocim etc but still quite enjoyable. Can’t shake the Belgian-esque feeling though.

bender (293) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - JAN 24, 2003
Dark, dark ruby body with a tan, milkshake-like head. No lacing.
Smells very malty and rich. A hint of sourness. I think there's a little hint of smoke in the aroma too.
Taste is malty at first, a huge hit of hops and then a powerful alcohol finish. Very warming but things seem out of balance.
Palate is a bit rough. Heavy alcohol left as aftertaste that almost coats the mouth..

Teran (290) - Belgrade, SERBIA - NOV 4, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2015 "Must try beer", even if you are not a fan of the monster brew companies. Very complex, almost black. The only one beer with the taste of the sea and that is exactly the taste of some north sea. Let us say: Baltic Sea. Also: sophisticated leather taste. Very special and very different . CUIR DE RUSSIE.

whitecap (289) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 23, 2011
500ml bottle. Pours dark brown/black with a tan head. Minimal lacing. Head dissapates somewhat quickly. Aroma of roasted caramal, roasted malts and a touch of alcohol and perhaps vanilla. flavour is sweet, bready, and mildly alcoholic with tastes of caramil, fruit and chocolate. not very bitter at all. mild carbonation.
