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°

Reminded me of a simple sweet stout. Not much complexity--gulpable. A good beginner's introduction to Porter, but not quite the real thing.

Teran (7) - Belgrade, SERBIA - NOV 4, 2014 does not count
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2014 "Must try beer", even if you are not a fan of the monster beer companies. Very complex, almost black. The only one beer with the taste of the sea and that is exactly the taste of some north sea. Let us say: Baltic Sea.

"full flavored, roasted, slightly sweet aroma. the slightly higher abv lends a nice, full body to this very tasty brew. recommended for a porter with a kick."

eduardovl (917) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
500ml bottle served in a thumbler glass. Bottled in December, 8th 2013. Best before the same date, 2014. A: Pours a dark brown color forming a creamy but quite aired beige head. Medium to low retention and some molasses lacings left in the glass S: Strong notes of chocolate malts and roasted malts. Notes of dark chocolate, dark fruits and wood. Very bready and biscuity. Blindfolded, I would say that’s a Schwarzbier T: Slightly sweet upfront. Strong roastiness. Notes of dark chocolate, chocolate malts, wood, caramel and vanilla. Light bitterness. A mix of roasted and hippy bitterness. Alcohol is perfectly hidden M: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Roasty and woody aftertaste O: Good drinkability. Smooth and pleasant Porter [ BA Review @ 5/2/2014 ]

Mainuh_man (215) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2014
0.5L bottle. Pours black with a big, tan head. Aromas are fairly mild: bread, cereal grain and chocolat.e. Flavor is fairly sweet, with lots of chocolate and some roasted malt coming through. Finishes with some roasted malt bitterness, but sweetness remains. Medium-full body with a slick mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Overall, some nice malt character, but fairly unidimensional flavorwise.

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2014
A beer with potential, but the experience is destroyed by the artificial additive sweeteners the Baltika brewery use.

robbienate (113) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 12, 2014
Brown-black coloured. Like the rest of Baltic-Beverage holding’s breweries’ beer it is sweet and rather unclean. Less full bodied than most Baltic porters. Big raisin flavour.

tania_nexust (223) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2014
Bottle from local Eastern European shop. Opaque dark brown, no head. Aroma is faintly roasty, faintly lactic, and a hint of the sea. Those notes are carried through on flavour, but body is a little thin. (re-rating this as when I entered this earlier today it didn’t save my points settings so gave a false total of 0.5)

Bottle. Cola colored with a thick fluffy tan head. Aroma is chocolate, dark fruit and a little marshmallow. Taste adds some roasted malt and a little lactic sweetness. Thin creamy mouthfeel. Very good.
