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°

Koelschtrinker (10382) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 21, 2011
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

madsberg (10142) - Søborg, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2003
Bottled: Brown/black coloured. Huge chocolate brown head. Aroma is chocolate and light roastyness. Flavour is a bit waterish but still pleasant. Smooth chocolate notes. Alcahol totally hidden. Ends up with a mild bitterness. Miss some of the heavy action, you see in other examples of style.

Maria (10136) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2007
Nice head and color, and the aroma has notes of chocolate. The flavour is quite full, sweet and slightly sour. It lack som power and bite and I would like more character, but I think it would be OK with desert and cake.

imdownthepub (10123) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2012
Bottled, 500ml from the East European Supermarket, High St. Banbury. Black with off white short lived head. Initial flavour of dry caramel, burnt, liquorice but quite sweet at the same time. A little chocolate, maltiness, the carbonation is fairly heavy. Reasonable but not mind blowing.

Travlr (10035) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 19, 2009
Served with a straw at our favorite place in Bishkek, but only available one night. Tasty sweetish and complex porter, better than we expected. Seek this one out as a better alternative to the others.

Lubiere (9866) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2012
A deep dark porter with a thick compact dark brown head, beautiful. In aroma, sweet fruity molasses, with light maple and maderization, very nice. In mouth, a nice smooth sweet porter with maple butter and dark fruits, veering on bock territory, surprising.
