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°

smelled really good. drank this one kinda slow and let it open up a bit. lots of good chocolate caramel flavors and warm alcohol. really impressed with how good this beer was for 1.99/pt. may buy it again, more of a winter beer. The Baltikas I’ve had are not bad stuff.

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.

Appearance: Very dark brown (looks black) with a thick foamy white head.

Aroma: Malt notes (toffee, caramel, bittersweet chocolate) with an interesting sweetness (almost a candi sugar-like smell) in the background. An unexpected slightly boozy presence.

Taste: Slight roast, mostly malt (bread, caramel, toffee) and a milk chocolate sweetness present. There is a bit of a metallic note in the finish and aftertaste that comes out a little bit as the beer warms. Not particular exciting, but certainly not “bad.”

Mouthfeel: Noticably thin. Slight carbonation, but not tepid.

Overall: This is a decent porter, nothing crazy. I could see myself drinking this on a warm day if it were chilled. The thin mouthfeel lends some decent drinkability to it that surprised me.

Score: 6/10

Pours dark brown with a minimal beige head. Sweet malt aroma with chocolate and light hops. Smokiness and light fruity finish with a touch of bitterness. A most enjoyable brew.

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.

1 pint .9fl oz Bottle: Pours deep brown w/ a nice brown head. Aroma is dominated by sweet malts w/ some caramel peeking through & a bit of grain. Flavor is heavy on the roasted malts. A bit on the sweet-side up front then a nice bitter bite. Caramel & burnt coffee w/ a little nip of alcohol present. Nice & smooth, me likey.

Pours a clear, deep reddish-black with a short tan head that lasts. Malty nose with licorice all through this rather sweet porter. Dates, ripe plums and molasses all present. Medium carbonation, medium-bodied. Sweet finish with a faint resinous hops aftertaste. If they could make this drier, introduce some hop flavors, and keep the licorice, I’d love it. But then it would be Coopers Extra Stout!

Bune noire, mousse marron claire bien persistante. Peu de lacings. Toastage chocolat-café, sucrée. Houblonnage peu perceptible au nez. En bouche pareil, par contre légère amertume donnant de la longueur et rondeur. Mais rien d’exceptionnel. Fin de bouche plutôt sucrée.

Bottle. I was at a Russian rock show so I thought this would be appropriate to drink there. This beer is definitely one of the best Baltikas out there.

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.
