In tallahassee you can buy this stuff extremly cheap so i never thought much of it. finally i decided to give it a try and found it a nice surprise. defiantly the best alcohol at its prive tier. anyway warm malt some roast produces a sweet thick taste on the tongue. some chocolate, does well to make this beer taste non alcoholic.

Decent coffee like aroma with a nice head that doesn’t go anywhere, taste isnt bad but there is a metallic like note, and that helps this go down smooth, a tasty different porter.

Raistlin (244) - London, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2009
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.

16.9 oz. bottle at Russia House is DC. Nothing too memorable about this one. Your average porter. Light malty flavor with no real development of flavors.

vidmidia (244) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - FEB 7, 2016
Escura, opaca. Espuma bege média de média duração. Aroma levemente ácido de malte tostado, defumado, chocolate e caramelo. Sabor adocicado equilibrado com notas de café, chocolate, caramelo e um pouco do álcool. Retrogosto ácido com final amargo.

Lalli (243) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 22, 2010
Bottle. Color is a very dark brown, quite modest head. Nose is roasted malts, liquorice and even a hint of perfume. Flavor is also roasted with liquorice and a nutty finish. Not that bad.

Excellent porter. Forget what I said about other Baltika products being so so. This and No.9 are the exceptions. Smelled of fruit and chocolate. The boozy undertones were subdued in this beer. One of my favorites to enjoy during the winter months. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BeerRules (243) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 28, 2005
Smells malty, sweet, toffee, bit of cocoa powder, molasses. Taste is sweet caramel, roasted, metallic, bit of fruitiness (reminds me of nectarines for some reason). Nice creamy mouthfeel with a lingering sweetness. I like that sweetness, but wish it had a bit more roastiness to it. Nice beer

Pours a jet black with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt and chocolate, a little yeasty. The flavor is roasty, with dark chocolate and enough bitterness. Their is kind of a sticky feeling that I didn’t like too much, I wish it were a bit cleaner. It’s a decent porter, and not too expensive.
