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°

Got the bottle. Pretty much like Danish porters (stick to pilseners guys!) and crap.

Procent (561) - POLAND - SEP 27, 2016
[Leżak 2 lata] W aromacie karmel, migdały, trochę paloności i lekki sos sojowy. Bez szału, ale nie jest źle. Barwa ciemnorubinowa, ładna piana. W smaku dość słodko, jest karmel, ale też landrynki, strona palona słabsza, ale także zaznaczona. Goryczka niska. Piwo jest dość ciężkie w smaku, a w odczuciu w ustach z kolei nieco wodniste. Nie zachwyca, ale jest poprawne.

From a bottle into a Ayinger glass. Pours black with head and lace. Aroma of roasty malts, milk chocolate. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of milk chocolate, amber malts, light grains, caramel, sugar. Overall flavorful, rather easy drinking with minimal bad tastes...just a little sweeter than standard for a Baltic porter.

Pretty excited here to sink my tastebuds into my first legitimate Russian beer. There is quite a difference compared here to the styles I’m used to here on the west coast. The appearance is dark brown with some ruby highlights around the glass. The head is tan and creamy, only sustainable for a few minutes. In the aroma, caramel malt prevails first, a slight sorghum quality, some plum, black licorice, cassis, and light floral hops. On the taste, there is a slick oily mouthfeel from the malt syrups used in the recipe. The caramel malt drives forward with chocolate and roasted barley in the backseat. The finish is dry and a little funky.

Całkiem całkiem porter. Aromat delikatny, palony, kawowy. Z wyglądu jest ok - typowy dla stylu. W smaku jest podobnie. Ogólnie za tą cenę jest spoko.

rikstar (2243) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2016
0,5l van de Poolse super in hoorn. Zwart met een crème kraag. Geur en smaak van zoete drop met een beetje cacao in de afdronk. Redelijk veel CO2 voor het type bier

dnicolaescu (1977) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - AUG 11, 2016
BOTTLE 50 CL. Almost black with ruby highlights, beige head. Surprisingly faint aroma with notes of dark molasses and chocolate, some booze. Taste: just lightly sweet, easy-drinking - molasses/treacle, hints of baking chocolate and dark malts. The finish is lightly salty, light hop spice and a hint of alcohol. Not completely hopeless, but lack the richness of modern porters. Still, decent.

crazykiller (34) - iasi, ROMANIA - AUG 9, 2016
Bottle 0.5: Clear dark beer with medium foam, lot of CO2, a little to much of roasted barley malt. Aftertaste is not so great for my taste, too bitter, but overall a decent Porter beer.

Taboada (923) - Compostela (Galiza), - AUG 9, 2016
500 mml bottle tasted on the 08/08/2016. Dark brown colour with almost no head. Aroma of roasted malts, licorice and dark chocolate. Taste is licorice, caramel, intense roasted malts, chocolate and some alcohol. Not bad. Aftertaste is dry and bitter. Next one please!

The_Osprey (6348) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2016
June 2016 - Bottle share at Scoopy’s, picked up in a Russian shop somewhere more Westerly than Richmond Upon Thames, if such a thing can be imagined. Black and opaque with a foamy dense tan head, leaving full lacing. Aroma is chocolate, some lactose, ash. Body is a little frothy with soft carbonation. Taste is kvass, light metallics, plain chocolate, some ash in the finish. An OK beer overall. (3.3)

Una cervesa Porter massa fàcil .Un amic rus em fa tastar cerveses del seu país. Acostumen a ser cerveses de mig litre i sense gaire virtuds. Sembla fetes per treure la sed però amb un alt contingut en alcohol. Aquesta cervesa es prescindible.
