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°

Smells malty, sweet, toffee, bit of cocoa powder, molasses. Taste is sweet caramel, roasted, metallic, bit of fruitiness (reminds me of nectarines for some reason). Nice creamy mouthfeel with a lingering sweetness. I like that sweetness, but wish it had a bit more roastiness to it. Nice beer

Pours a jet black with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt and chocolate, a little yeasty. The flavor is roasty, with dark chocolate and enough bitterness. Their is kind of a sticky feeling that I didn’t like too much, I wish it were a bit cleaner. It’s a decent porter, and not too expensive.

Excellent porter. Forget what I said about other Baltika products being so so. This and No.9 are the exceptions. Smelled of fruit and chocolate. The boozy undertones were subdued in this beer. One of my favorites to enjoy during the winter months. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500 ml bottle - Black brownish colour with creamy white fizzy frothy. Quite a weak taste for a porter but not unpleasant in anyway. Slightly too carbonated.

It is an average porter. I bought the bottle in drink of the world in Geneva. The carbonation is low, nice foam and dark. The taste is really malty, not a lot of hop and one side sweet, typical from the East Porter.

Bought at Marty’s in Allston. They have a great selection of Baltika and Arsenalnoe. Very dark color. Not bitter taste at all, less of a coffee flavor than a regular porter. Very smooth. Quickly fading dark cream colored head.

Je ne suis pas un fan des bières brunes, mais celle-ci passe bien, elle rentre dans mes exceptions. Belle mousse, arômes de caramel. Intéressante.

Raistlin (231) - 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.

FastEddie (230) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 2, 2007
It has an ample brownish head which stays around a little while. The beer is an opaque, brown-black. The aroma is subtle, even a bit weak. The flavor has some nice toasty darkness to it, but I also think it slightly watery.

tania_nexust (230) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2014
Bottle from local Eastern European shop. Opaque dark brown, no head. Aroma is faintly roasty, faintly lactic, and a hint of the sea. Those notes are carried through on flavour, but body is a little thin. (re-rating this as when I entered this earlier today it didn’t save my points settings so gave a false total of 0.5)
