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 :)

Big bottle. Served from fridge into tulip. Appearance is pretty dark with a one finger off white soft head. Aroma is malty with notes of raisins. Taste is moderately sweet with very little bitterness. Malty with notes of chocolate and toast. A medium to full bodied beer. Somewhat thicker texture. Average carbonation. Long fairly smooth finish. Unique and enjoyable. Received from friend, therefore no idea on availability.

bottle from paradise market. #1 beer in russia so i had to try it. stuck on some netflix and had one last night. pours almost black with a creamy tan head. aroma of chocolate, caramel, coffee. taste is a nice balance of malts, a wee bit of booze, mocha coffee, licorice, a light burnt bitterness as you keep drinking. no fizz so its real smooth but its slightly thin and oily. not bad at all but nothing wild

Opaca, casi negra. Espuma muy firme. Aroma a malta tostada y café. Malta dulce en el sabor con base de caramelo y chocolate. Poco café también. Licórica, debido a la baja carbonatación sobre todo. En cualquier caso está buena.

From 0,5l bottle, BBD: 31.07.15 Pours clear dark brown liquid, big frothy tan to brown head, fell down quickly, fizzy impression. Aroma: caramel, marzipan, malty, chocolate, coffee, Taste: medium sweet, medium bitter, light to medium sour, malty, chocolate, light espresso, plums, Palate: medium body, slick to oily texture, average to lively carbonation, medium long chocolate roasty finish. Overall: good, relatively drinkable for such big brewery. But still, would appreciate more complex notes, more refined body, lower carbonation, better mouthfeel...

Bottle: Not what I’m looking for when I want a Baltic porter. This is basicaly a dark lager. It wasn’t a nasty flavor, just super light and overly malty. Let me just say how happy I am that I live in America and not St. Petersburg.
