Good looking beer. Pretty tasty, if a litttle light on flavor for a porter. Chocolatey malts, short finish. Not bad at all.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - APR 20, 2006
From a 1pt.9oz. narrow neck brown bottle with a short blurb about the porter and a best before date on the back label, 07.06.06. Made a decent appearance, poured a opaque ruby hued dark coffee brown with a foamy tan head that settled into a thin, skim- like foamy lacing, moderate to medium carbonation overall. Had sweet fruity/caramel lightly roasted malt nose. A creamy, smooth light-ish medium bodied mouth feel, above average drinkability. Watery burnt chocolate and caramel malty with a small dose of sweeten milk taste, a watery hop bitterness and a sweet, roasted, fruity malty finish. Like I’ve said about other Baltika beers,average, drinkable, not awful, at a cheap price and for me, that holds true for this porter.

The mouthfeel is a bit thin. It’s a bit fizzy. Aroma of toast and chocolate? Finish is chocolate and a light bitterness. A fruity ester I can’t attribute. It’s not Gonzo, but it’s good.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - APR 4, 2006
Black. Huge, frothy, tan head. Not much aroma, only a light roastiness. Flavor of a classic porter with some nice anise and bittering hops in the finish. Medium/full, balanced body. Not bad, a steal for $2 a pint bottle.

barleyPops (1142) - Quad-Cities, Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2006
bottle courtesy of OhioDad, thanks Scott. aroma of coffee and some yeast. dark brown in color with a tan head and fantastic lacing. flavors are coffee, bittersweet chocolate, some caramel and yeast. sort of a dry bitter finish , but overall pretty tastey. palate is quite thin otherwise a pleasant drinkable porter.

tcruicks (282) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - APR 3, 2006
Dark brown, and a bit red with a light brown head. This smells great, like vanilla cream, malty, and caramel. Flavour matches the aroma, but is a bit more bitter and watery than expected. Very sweet. Can taste a bit of chocolate lingering on the tongue.

3.5
pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - APR 3, 2006
Pours a dark red black with an ephemeral tan head. The aroma is the strongpoint of this brew sweet vanilla and caramel with a hint of bitterness and hops. The mouthfeel is creamy, yet it seems slightly acidic and abrasive. It’s a confusing combination, but it works for a higher gravity porter like this. There’s a gentle malty sweetness to this brew, and then there is a bitter hop and roasty note. The alcohol really brings out these more abrasive flavors, and yet the sweetness accentuates the vanilla/caramel notes. Charcoal really lingers on the palate. This is a pretty complicated beer, but not half bad.

JohnnyOS (646) - Golden, Wisconsin, USA - APR 1, 2006
Pours black with light tan head that fades quickly. Aroma of dark chocolate and molasses with roasted malt. Smooth, very smooth with a well developed flavor. Tastes of malted dark chocolate molasses coffee. Barely discernable alcohol presence. An excellent Porter in my opinion.
