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.

wolfcarnival (151) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 17, 2015
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

jamaty (1162) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 8, 2015
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.

HerrBierkoenig (515) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 1, 2015
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...

pinkzambia (1653) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 26, 2015
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.
