4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, liqueur, dark fruits. Appearance is dark reddish brown--almost opaque with two finger-width frothy beige head with fair retention and lacing. Taste is as aroma, moderately sweet malty chocolate and dark fruits, mild bitter balance. Palate is medium to full bodied with velvety creamy texture, average carbonation and sweet malty finish. Overall, this is a sweet treat without going overboard. The appearance and palate create a smooth, creamy impression. Very nice.

Shared 16.9 oz. bottle. Almost black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, dark chocolate, and perhaps a hint of artificial cherry. It smells very sweet. Roasted and burnt malt, chocolate, caramel, and dark fruit flavors. Not bad, but a bit too sweet.

One of my favorite porters of all-time. The tones of coffee and caramel are present and taste so amazing. You will want more after finishing the bottle

Excellent porter. Forget what I said about other Baltika products being so so. This and No.9 are the exceptions. Smelled of fruit and chocolate. The boozy undertones were subdued in this beer. One of my favorites to enjoy during the winter months.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very dark brown in colour. Aroma and flavour have light caramel and dark roasted malts. A bit on the sweet side but quite flavoursome.
