2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Black with beige/tan head that kept for about half of the glass. Modest aroma with earthy/burnt/salty smells. Strong start on flavor consistent with the aroma and a nice lingering savory finish. Medium bodied. Enjoyable beer, but not too exciting. I’d drink again when available, but wouldn’t go out of my way to get it again.

I had a Baltika 7 a few minutes ago, and I was disappointed by it. I thought I was going to have the same experience with Baltika 6, but I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this porter. It poured out with a large thick brown head and left lacing the entire way down the glass as I worked my way through drinking it. It’s best described as silky smooth with a good carmel coffee mix that is just a bit sweet. Try one!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a 2 finger beige head. Body is pitch black in color. Head retention and lacing were above average.
Aroma is similar to a doppelbock, lots of dried fruit coming through, prunes/dates/raisins. Theres lots of sweetness, residual sugars, lactose and some alcohol. No hops are detected.
First taste is of toffee and sweet roasted malt. Burnt, smoked malt is also there with the dried fruit from the nose. Hops arent present but for 7% abv the alcohol is definitely there. There are some off flavors in the after taste, cant put my finger on it but it may be oxidation.
Mouth feel is good. Medium bodied, carbonation is balanced well. Head died halfway through beer which was disappointing.
Drink ability was above average. Wasnt very impressed by this beer. It was pretty rough around the edges, wouldnt buy again

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Næsten sort. Dufter af ristet malt og chokolade. En anelse sød. Mild! Smager af nødder, kaffe og chokolade. Rundes af på en meget blød måde, med en anelse bitterhed og alkohol, samt vanille og nødder.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear dark brown with a two finger tan head. The nose is bitter chocolate and vinous, with a tiny hint of dark fruit. the flavor is ruled by a vinous bitter flavor touched by dark fruits and possibly chocolate. Overall a complex flavor and a good beer, but I don’t have a milestone to compare it to.

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Dark, good looking brew belies the danger that waits underneath. Tastes very thick with and almost licorice schnappes flavoring. Unfortunately, the bile like after taste ruins the whole experience and it just gets worse the more you drink.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
16.9oz. bottle. Pours a very deep amber with .5in. short lived tan head that left minimal lacing. Aroma of sweet malt, light milk chocolate notes. Taste is a little sweet for me with flavors of milk chocolate, dark fruits, and cane surgar. Medium to heavy on the body with an almost syrurpy texture and light carbonation. Not bad just too sweet for my taste.
