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°

Very nice porter. Has a great roasted taste, coffee and malt. Looks just like a porter should. Has a nice smooth aftertaste, with just enough hops to make this very nicely balanced.

Wow. Having had Baltika’s lager, and having picked up the porter on sale for $1.36 US, I hardly had high expectations. But those expectations were met and exceeded by a wide margin. This was an excellent porter that was a deep, rich colour and had a wonderfully malty flavour that had depth with chocolate, caramel, and coffee notes. One of the great beer bargains.

Best beer we tasted on tap. Usually you bring your own jar (as in jamjar). This one is dark in colour, but only slightly malty on the tastebuds.

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.

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.

gildnerk (147) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAR 27, 2014
Pours very dark ruby red (black to the eye) with a tall, fluffy beige-brown head that dissolves into lace. Aromas are rather bright, with notes of grass, caramel and yeast. The taste is at first light and sweet, but works into a more robust, complex end wth an aftertaste of baker’s chocolate, molasses and prunes. The fruitiness at the end tends towards acidity. A multifaceted and enjoyable Baltic porter.

bastarda (147) - Freiburg, GERMANY - MAR 16, 2015
shared by bartlebier - thank you! - and with Hugi @homebrew Feb.; my first Baltic Porter; pumpernickel nose, then hints of wild strawberries and sherry; taste sets on with pumpernickel as well, dissolving into maltiness, mild roast, some chocolate notes, subtle bitterness, well-balanced. A subtle, harmonious beer.

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.
