COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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°

Black and opaque. Decent, tan head. Smells malty, fruity (prunes), & a little alcohol. Bubbly, with a choc. sweet, candy thing. Good yeast used here. Not very porter-esk, esp. w/ a slight singe, despite only 7%. Complx thou. cheap too ($2.20) Maybe even stouty or dopplebock-ish :)

rondphoto (2267) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - DEC 6, 2014
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear, very dark, ruby brown with a good 1/2" tan head cover, swirls and sheets of lace. Nice aroma of sweet malt. Tasted is lightly toasted malt that becomes more malty in the palate, adding light bittering in a nice long finish that isn’t finished until a litlle caramel seeps back in. A traditional brew, but a solid brew. Above the other Baltika offerings.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2014 "Must try beer", even if you are not a fan of the monster beer companies. Very complex, almost black. The only one beer with the taste of the sea and that is exactly the taste of some north sea. Let us say: Baltic Sea.

"full flavored, roasted, slightly sweet aroma. the slightly higher abv lends a nice, full body to this very tasty brew. recommended for a porter with a kick."

eduardovl (938) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2014 500ml bottle served in a thumbler glass. Bottled in December, 8th 2013. Best before the same date, 2014. A: Pours a dark brown color forming a creamy but quite aired beige head. Medium to low retention and some molasses lacings left in the glass S: Strong notes of chocolate malts and roasted malts. Notes of dark chocolate, dark fruits and wood. Very bready and biscuity. Blindfolded, I would say that’s a Schwarzbier T: Slightly sweet upfront. Strong roastiness. Notes of dark chocolate, chocolate malts, wood, caramel and vanilla. Light bitterness. A mix of roasted and hippy bitterness. Alcohol is perfectly hidden M: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Roasty and woody aftertaste O: Good drinkability. Smooth and pleasant Porter [ BA Review @ 5/2/2014 ]

Mainuh_man (236) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2014
0.5L bottle. Pours black with a big, tan head. Aromas are fairly mild: bread, cereal grain and chocolat.e. Flavor is fairly sweet, with lots of chocolate and some roasted malt coming through. Finishes with some roasted malt bitterness, but sweetness remains. Medium-full body with a slick mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Overall, some nice malt character, but fairly unidimensional flavorwise.

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2014
A beer with potential, but the experience is destroyed by the artificial additive sweeteners the Baltika brewery use.
