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°

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.

FatPhil (11835) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 11, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2008 Blind tasting with Tranquility. 500ml bottle. Tight creamy and dark head, stays for ever. Aroma chocolatey. (On another bottle, I got gravy - meat and yeast.) Tastes like a hefty stout, some alcohol due to the 7%, full maltiness, not oppressingly burnt. As it gets warmer, there will be even bacon in the taste! Well rounded, make this the last 2 beers of the evening...

Pinball (11705) - 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.

thewolf (11652) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 28, 2007
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.

Lubiere (11588) - 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.

Benzai (11360) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 6, 2011
Black, though not completely opaque. In light a slight red glow is visible. About 1 cm beide head disappearing fast. Smell wort, coffee, roasted malts and dark chocolate. Light bitterness. Pretty complex taste all things considered. Taste is good, carbo ok, body medium to full.
