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. 17į

Buena porter con poco aroma pero con un sabor impactante aunque adolece de cuerpo, el cual se echa un poco de menos. RepetirŪa sin problemas.

A little thin for my tastes, but a great value porter overall. Light coffee flavor, heavier on chocolate. Decent roasted malt flavors with slight hops added.

brew4all (103) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 21, 2006
Average porter at best. Very simple and plain. Poured dark with thin head. Smelled like dirt and smoke. Tasted like coffee and sweet fruits. Seems like the porter is generic.

virtuosovii (103) - California, USA - JAN 18, 2010
Pours almost opaque black with minimal tan head. Aroma is weak, with slight tones of dark fruits. Taste is very sweet and lightly bitter with tones of plum, cherry and some hints of chocolate and coffee. Has a thick feel, creamy, low carbonation with an abrupt finish. Overall itís a pretty decent beer and itís cheap. I frequent this one along with the Baltika 4. Cheap, and tasty.

Mild hops and yeast aroma. Dark brown / root beer color with resilient tan head. Full, smoky, chocolatey, slightly sweet. Full body, slippery mouthfeel. Finishes sweetly but not sticky. A little alcohol at the end.

sistinas (101) - Mountain View, California, USA - NOV 10, 2006
Bottle. Pours an almost opaque dark brown with a big tan head. Aroma is malty with some toffee and dark fruits, though Iím getting a whiff of something vaguely metallic too. Taste is quite sweet, then melds into a more balanced malty flavor and ends on a slight hop note. Mouthfeel is on the thicker side. A solid porter but not complex enough to be great or amazing.

beerbiere (101) - Montrťal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 15, 2008
Dark brew topped by a nice foamy head, small bubbling and good retention. Smells of licorice, raisin, chocolate and some wood. Flavoris more on the sweet side. Creamy texture, body is lighter than an imperial stout without being thin; makes it easy to drink. My personal reference in terms of baltic porters, a very good after-dinner drink.

I havenít had a lot of baltic porters, but the one thing that sticks out is the metallic aroma/flavor. When I read this was a baltic, I was sad. But itís not bad... but it has that metallic aroma/flavor that I remember. It is good, thin, and easy to drink. That is dangerous, because it is 7% ABV. For a beer that comes from mother Russia, itís a nice offering, and I would only buy it again because of the price. Oh, and I am going to try this over ice cream!

Good carbonation. Black as midnight. Nose is clearly a sweet, roasted coffee. Starts smooth, malty and strong coffee flavor, finishes with a little hoppiness and bitterness. A very good porter
