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°

Dark, nearly black, no head, no lacing. It has an aroma of alcohol and roasted malts. Somewhere between a light and medium body. Tastes very sweet and malty, with a tad bit of hop bitterness...coffee flavor, evident alcohol. Not a bad beer, and it's cheap price may get me to buy it again some day.

Best beer we tasted on tap. Usually you bring your own jar (as in jamjar). This one is dark in colour, but only slightly malty on the tastebuds.

Black. Off-white head. Discrete aroma of licorice and coffee. Long lasting favor of burnt coffee and licorice. Sweet. Not fully flavored but ok.

(Best by 11/12/2004) I haven't had many Russian beers that I have like, but I am willing to try this moderately touted porter. The beer is appropriately dark with an excellent head and lace work. The nose hits me with a good does of licorice, chocolate, and coffee. The palate is medium with a slight roastiness that rounds the beer out nicely. The finish is like an ice coffee. Best Russian beer to date.

Neutral nose. Very black, ok head. Earthy, slighly sour roasted and smoked malt flavors. Milky mouthfeel, coffee and chokolate aftertaste.

Bought this one at the spur of the moment. Good body. Good flavor. Not overpowering. Might call it a "lawnmower beer" version of a porter? its only $1.79 at Bevmo so I’ll probably buy it again!

Pours as black as stout with a palamino head. Aroma is light and difficult to detect, but with subtle smokiness and deep alcohol tones. Flavor is very raw and malty with little complexity and a light molasses/sorgham quality. Some chocolate notes peak through. Hops are nearly undetectable. Palate is smooth and rather undefined. Overall, raw and plain.

Pours black, with a small off-white head. Not a bad porter, though it does has that "strained through cardboard" aftertaste endemic to many Russian beers. Definitely has a strong kick to it. I can imagine myself drinking this at a kiosk on Nevsky Prospekt.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - MAY 12, 2005
Bottle poured black with a smallish head. Light aroma of roasty malts. Flavor is a bit thin, but the roast and chocolate hints are evident along with a metalic aftertaste. Not bad.

Indra (2711) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUL 18, 2005
500ml bottle. Aroma is sweet and rich, with notes of molasses, milky chocolate, raisin, vanilla and faint roastiness. Deep brown-black color with an uneven tan head. Flavor is toasty to start and very lightly bitter to start, with a darkly fruity middle reminiscent of prune and licorice and having a big, sweet, dark brown sugary finish. Somewhat thin on the palate, body is medium-full. Interesting enough, in its way.
