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°

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.

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.

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.

I tried at a Russian restaurant in Bogota, when it’s 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 can’t be enjoyed if the weather starts to be hot so it’s better if it’s served cold.

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.

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.

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."

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.

Bottle Armenian Restaurant, Sennaya District, Saint Petersburg. Dark Brown to black with thin brown head. Sweetish roast malt aroma. Taste sweetish chocolate and caramel lingering bitter aftertaste. Decent beer.

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.
