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°

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2007 Bottle, from Butik Moskva, Cph. Dark hazel brown with a bubbly caramel brown head that fizzes along, but still takes some time to diminish. There is a little lacing. Aroma is a little sweet, dried fruits and a little chocolate. Quite crisp carbonation, quite lively - needs to warm up a bit for me. Flavour is filled with roasted malts, chocolate, raisins, a small viniousness and a well-rounded mild bitterness.

The mouthfeel is a bit thin. It’s a bit fizzy. Aroma of toast and chocolate? Finish is chocolate and a light bitterness. A fruity ester I can’t attribute. It’s not Gonzo, but it’s good.

Pinball (10847) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2010
comes in a nice russian looking specially shaped bottle with a logo carved into the glass (prettier than the RB photo) clear very dark brown small light brown head. aroma of brown sugar, dark roasted malts, semi-dark caramel, spicy note that could be very slightly smoke or peat, mild dark beer / porter aroma. flavor is brown sugary sweet, natural licorice, faint roasted grains, hops bring some faint honey like flowery and some pine or grapefruit notes. ends hard roasted , faint charcoal,licorice, aftertaste is roast ,charcoal and licorice. Quite a lot of taste for a "macro" porter, but it does not get as heavy as some of the extreme brews of recent time. Nice licorice, roasted grainy porter with a good alc% and a nice roasted aftertaste.

Malzig-milder Antrunk, ab dem Mittelteil erfolgt eine proportionale Malzsteigerung hin zu ansprechend wüürzig-malzigem Nachgeschmack, der mit seiner angedeuteten Schokoladennote auch noch süffig ist. Eins der besten Baltikas. Test vom 12.8.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,9,9,12,11,10 - 9,95
