COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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°

I’m discovering that Baltic/Eastern European porters and stouts seem to be either a hit or a miss. This was a hit. Smooth like silk. Easy drinking (especially for its darkness and strength), a great dessert beer.

Very smooth Baltic style Porter. Chocolate notes blend well with coffee and toffee. A medium bodied ale with a sweet finish, and has traces of dark fruit and bannana esters. Much less burnt and robust flavors than its American counterparts.

Dzhigga (147) - Kirov, RUSSIA - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown color with large disappearing head. Nice aroma of bread, wine, plume. Taste is bitter-sweet, full-bodied. Aftertaste is bitter with nice notes of dry fruits. Very good beer. Baltika, why it's so difficult to find in Russia?!

Dark brown pour with thick tan head. Very sweet malty aroma. Sweet taste with dark fruit and caramel malt with a little anise. This is a surprisingly good beer!

A bit overly sweet but otherwise a decent example of a porter. Head is decent, if not really large, and the aroma is reasonable and the color is nicely opaque. Not the best of its type, but an acceptable brew.

Raistlin (144) - London, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2009
This beer was pretty bad. I couldn’t finish it. While it looks great, brown colour with tan head, it tastes quite awful. It has a very sweet flavor. It has quite bad aftertaste as well.

WastedYouthBrew (143) - Phila (Home of Geno's Steaks), Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2003 This is quite a crafty brew with excellent flavor precipitating out of each and every plate. A thick a lustrous porter with no exceptions to displease, all though purchased very cheap the Baltika people don’t beat around the bush on this one, moderatly priced for an excelent taste.

Pours a coca-cola brown with a large, light brown head. Has a strong, malty aroma with lots of molasses, dates, coffee, caramel, almond, and floral hops. The flavor is initially sweet and thin, but has a delicous bitter and smoky finish. The finish is by far the best feature of this beer - very complex with plenty of dark fruits, chocolate, and licorice. It feels too thin on the palate, and has a watery texture, although it is somewhat creamy. Overall, this is a pretty good porter, not great, but I’d try it again.

rakkasan (142) - Bresso, ITALY - NOV 18, 2009
bottle- pours an almost black color with a light brown fizzy head. Faint malty, liquorice, grape juice aroma with a hint of smoke. Toasty soy sauce flavor, slighty sweet and nutty with a lightly salty finish.
