This special beer has been brewed in the year 2000 according to an old Russian porter recipe with brown malt, Russian kwas, hops and water from BALIK’s own source at Ebersol.
It then matured during one year in old oak butts and received individual care up to its maturity. Its has been brewed and bottled in limited quantities at the brewery Locher at Appenzell. This very demanding procedure gives the BALIK BEER its noble and characteristic sherry taste and its amber colouring. But this sparkling BALIK BEER may reserve you some surprise. With 11 %vol. of alcohol, it compares much more with a wine than with traditional beer. We recommend to drink BALIK BEER cool, at a temperature of 12° C. BALIK BEER should be stored in a dark place. When stored, the quality of the beer will improve yearly and its taste will become more and more harmonious.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bright, dark auburn color. Sweet nose witg alcohol. The body is alcoholic with a hint of alcohol and some more alcohol. Maybe I have to try this beer again, but this sample was putrid, nothing making its way past the dominating alcohol.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bright red-amber colour, almost no foam, complex and strange aroma of cherries and perfume, bubblegum-like, smokey notes, overcarbonated, sweet and oily followed by an explosion of alcohol in a very long and dry bitter finish - a strange experiment and a very free interpretation of a porter
