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: JUN 18, 2014 Solid black with a brown head, this beer looks like an impressive porter. The aroma is burnt and strong on coffee; smells sweeter than it tastes. The taste is good, a decent combination of coffee, oatmeal, and subtle caramel. The burnt malt flavor is really enjoyable. Mouthfeel is unpleasantly slick, however. A good fair-priced import porter, not the greatest but still enjoyable. Something still macro-ish about it.

Looks good but foamy head goes away without lacing, has a thin mouthfeel, and no bitter aftertaste. A good porter to get someone interested in the style since it is very harmless and cheap.

This is a great buy. A very drinkable porter. Great for those hot days when you want a dark beer but need to quench your thirst.

Alengrin (1297) - BELGIUM - JUL 25, 2014
Classic Baltic porter with a creamy, beige head and full black colour; aroma caramel malts, coffee grounds, some molasses and dark fruits, taste very malty, chocolatey, slick mouthfeel, toasted bitterness filling the mouth. Don’t know if this is Russia’s best beer, but it would come as no surprise to me.

The best mass-product beer in Russia. This proves Baltica can produce great beer, but instead manufactures insipid lagers one after another :( As for beer itself, I would call it a model of baltic porter: very full bodied, coffee and chocolate aroma, mix of sweetness and bitterness. Just great. NOTE: be careful, three bottles can easily knock you out.

50cl bottle at home. Dark brown with a medium off-white head with low retention. Medium body with low to moderate carbonation. Bittersweet taste. Chocolate, roasted malts, brown sugar, some red wine, spices and dark fruits. A more then decent dark brew.

Totally black in color. Small brown head. Aroma of caramel and roasted malt. Taste reminds kvas and porter beer at once. Amazing mix. Resfreshing beer. Body is medium or even light (not common thing for porter), but this makes it distinguished among the others. Bittersweet aftertaste. Recommend.
