harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAY 9, 2006
Like drinking chocolate milk, very sweet, and lactic, and very roasted caramel malt. Some licorice and molasses, with a dry roasted coffee finish. Very decent, smooth and easy to drink. A nice surprise.

pivnizub (10911) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAY 9, 2006
Almost black, slowly diminishing mid-sized "milk-coffee" head; sweet malty (dark malt, roast malt, molasses) and fruity (raisins) aroma with a touch of iron; sweet flasvour in the beginning, switching over to a dryer (malty) taste, ending with a slightly dry, lingering roastmalty/coffeeish finish with a tinge of fruitiness. Warming and complex and pleasant and well drinkable.....

BeerandBlues2 (14027) - Escondido, California, USA - APR 30, 2006
Bottle. Pours opaque with a foamy tan head, mostly lasting. Aroma is dark roasted grainy malt with notes of dark chocolate/cocoa and coffee. Dark, medium bitter and acidic flavor of toast and meal, finish is bitter. Dark bodied and fizzy palate, easy to drink.

3.7
dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - APR 28, 2006
Bottle. Black with a tan head and a rich malt aroma. The body is heavy with a sweet, smooth malt flavor. The finish is clean and quite refreshing for an inexpensive beer.

3.5
kwoeltje (2234) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - APR 27, 2006
(bottle) deep black with tan head. Roast malt aroma with hints of chocolate. Flavor of roast malt and dark fruits.

3.6
Fin (11070) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2006
Bottled had this on a few occasions in St Petersburg early May 05 and have picked this up from the Russian Supermarket on the Cowley Road, Oxford. Dark brown with a slighlty mucky white head, good aroma of chocolate and roasted notes, with chocolate again present in the flavour but also a little bit sweet. A very decent porter and one of the better of the Baltika stable.

3.7
jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - APR 25, 2006
Pours dark brown with an off-white two-finger head. Subtle aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, and alcohol. The same is in the flavor, accompanied by light vanilla, lactose, and hops. Mouthfeel is suitably thin; this is a Porter than knows it’s a Porter. Surprisingly good, considering some of these guys’ other brews.

3.3
Otje (678) - Veendam, NETHERLANDS - APR 25, 2006
UPDATED: APR 26, 2006 lovely fruity and tasty porter. aromas of coffee, vanilla, chocolate, aniseed and a little more spicy. tastes full of roasted malt and hop (citrussy), some coffee and thats it. finishes sourrish and full.

3.6
RCL (2032) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - APR 23, 2006
Good looking beer. Pretty tasty, if a litttle light on flavor for a porter. Chocolatey malts, short finish. Not bad at all.

2.9
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.
