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°

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..

tedovertu (291) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - MAY 29, 2008
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.

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.

Very unique. Smells and tastes like a malty German doppelbock with some extra roasted barley thrown in.

Bottle to porter glass. Aroma is herbal and like some kind of green plant. Taste is mostly roasted malt with hop balance. Finish is decent. Good carbonation. Very different from European and American porters. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

snoot (286) - Anaheim, California, USA - SEP 8, 2008
Pours dark. Big tan head, nice lacing. Aroma is pretty straightforward, there’s malt in there and it’s fairly sweet. Flavor is quite nice, a little sweet, but it has some vinous notes and hides it’s alcohol (lower, granted) better than Okocim. Very enjoyable.

toml219 (285) - California, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Serving type: bottle Apearance- Black with a quick disappearing tan head and sticky lacing. Aroma- Very light and sweet with a slight hint of chocolate and fruits T/P- Taste is very much like the smelt sweet with a hint of fruits and chocolate very pleasant moth feel carbonation is a bit high but not bad. Overall- Very drinkable porter. I have not been disappointed in anything from this brewery. This is a porter that you could easily have more than one of in a night

Shanebrews (284) - Virginia, USA - OCT 23, 2015
This was more like a schwarzbier than a porter. It poured black with a tan head. The aroma was malty and thick. The body is full and the taste is packed with dried fruit flavors and a bit of a coffee note with an ample bitterness on the end. It’s a bit like a holiday fruit cake. I will drink this beer again.

brugmanneke (283) - GERMANY - JUL 5, 2012
(50 cl bottle) Black with a beige head. Aroma is licorice, dried fruits, cocoa, dark bread, molasses. Very subdued hints of hoppy aroma. Taste is rather sweet, hardly any bitterness. Soft carbonation, sticky texture, full body. Very warming, and alcohol not well disguised. Just not my kind of beer.
