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°

500 ml. bottle. Pours a thin mocha head, with some lacing, over a dark, slightly reddish (SRM 36) clear body....nose is coffee, chocolate, molasses....taste is sweet malts caramel, toffee, then molasses, finishing with slight roasted bitterness....mouth feel is light and a bit watery, carbonation is medium. This is somewhat lighter in aroma and flavors than expected, and the mouth feel is a little light.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2009
A black beer with a nice looking head. The aroma was quite mild with a very light roastedness. The taste had some dark fruits, & tasted like Coke with less carbonation. Gotta try more Baltic Porters.

probstblueribbon (2942) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2009
500 ml bottle in gift pack from LCBO, served at cellar temperature in a snifter glass.

App.: Deep brown-black with a so-so tan head. Aroma: Nice rich sweet chocolate, vanilla, dried fruits, light nuttiness, some coffee, some molasses, some bright berries, a little wood, a light soy sauce/savoury note with a hint of fish (?!), Palate: Medium+ body and virtually no carbonation for a very silky, smooth feel. Flav.: Grape-like fruitiness, a bit stale, many of the inviting aromas don’t come through, some almost-burnt cracker, a bit of leafy hops, a little coffee, some light alcohol; lightly sweet with balancing bitterness and a lightly fruity/malty finish.

The classic bait and switch: the attractive nose lures you in and then leaves you with it’s fat friend.

500 ml bottle from the LCBO. gift pack. pours black with a tan head. very muted aroma of dried fall leaves, cara malt, touch of roast. the flavour is better. the malt body is decent and the hops come in near the finish. a touch thin and a bit tinny (which i hate). not my thing.

GTAEgeek (1238) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 19, 2010
500 mL bottle. Pours black and nearly opaque with a massive dark tan head. The aroma is huge syrupy malts, coffee, and seawater. The flavor is almost like bittersweet chocolate. The body is medium and the palate is smooth. Not a bad beer, and definitely the best Baltika I’ve had yet.

Finn (4263) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 2, 2010
Flaske 0,5l fra Alko/Enontekiö. Gave fra Bjørn Olav. Mørkebrun / svart. Høyt mokkafarget skum som varer veldig lenge. OK aroma med litt kaffe. Litt lite smak men en fornemmer kaffe & litt sjokolade. Smaksmessig en lettporter. Hvor ble det av alkoholen? Gjorde lite av seg.

A little thin for my tastes, but a great value porter overall. Light coffee flavor, heavier on chocolate. Decent roasted malt flavors with slight hops added.

Brown pour with medium tan head. Aroma of nuts, some coffee. Flavor was more coffee, some toasted nuts, but finish was a bit watery and metallic which grew the more sips I had.
