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°

Black with hints of red. Mostly diminishing light brown foamy head. Smells of cookie and molasses. Initially sweet taste with a slight alcohol finish. Light bodied almost watery mouthfeel. Drinkable but probably won’t go out of my way to buy again.

La mejor para mí de todas las de Baltika. Una cerveza densa con aromas a café.

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 (157) - 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.

Pours black with a slightly caramel tint when held to the light and a moderate tan head. Some bready and caramel malt aroma. Roasty flavor with very mild sweetness and a hop bitterness and a slightly astringent finish. Lots of sparkling carbonation. Decent beer.

bastarda (156) - 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.

I found this beer very similar to guiness. A dry coffee taste with a unique aftertaste. The color and aroma were nice.

Quetzalcoatl (153) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 29, 2004
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.
