Bottle. Black on the pour with a lively, quick head - good amount of carbonation. Not a terribly thick beer despite the dark color. My first beer of this type (Baltic Porter). Taste is much like that of Baltika 4. Sweet, roasted caramel malts with a fair amount of bitterness at the finish. Not a repeat buy for me as there was nothing noteworthy about this brew. Still, not bad, though.

Pouors opaque with creamy light brown head which dissipates after about two minutes. Chocolatey aroma with little hop nose. Smooth velvety, malty body with slight hop bitterness. Nice silky finish. Pleasant beer. The Russians have done this one well.

Very dark. Frothy, short-lived head. Aromas of burnt toast, espresso, and toffee. Clean, well-balanced taste, no smokiness and balanced hoppiness. Very enjoyable, alone or with food. I had it with pork schnitzel and fried potatoes. Russian "Breakfast of Champions."

Malty, raisin, cherry, chocolatey aroma. Pours a beautiful dark brown with a nice light brown head. Flavor is kind of roasty, mild sweetness. not too appealing though. Decent beer, but nothing out of the ordinary.

I tried at a Russian restaurant in Bogota, when itís 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 canít be enjoyed if the weather starts to be hot so itís better if itís served cold.

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. Itís a bit like a holiday fruit cake. I will drink this beer again.

Smells of black malt an almost burnt sugar aroma. The beer is black brown in color its large bubbled medium sized head is a light brown. A bit sweet and bitter hints of coffee. Good not exciting and that is how a porter is supposed to taste. The alcohol does let you know its there, not that that is a bad thing

Aroma: syrupy and roasty; not bad; Appearance: black with off white head that dissipates quickly; some lacing; Taste: very sweet with a slight twang reminiscent of the smoked porter; Palate: not as heavy as expected; long, sweet and slightly roasty finish; kind of cloying; Overall: not too bad but wouldnít buy again.

Coffee and roasted malts not so intense as I expected. Decent porter but little bit poor. I liked but I would like to find more in.
