UPDATED: NOV 17, 2006 Smells and looks great; nice tan head like a stout. This beer also a sting of bitterness to it - also stoutish. But the sweetness is still definitely there. Excellent beer, best Baltika for sure.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 20, 2005
Bottle. Pours dark brown and opaque with faint garnet highlights when held to light. A large tan head fades slowly and leaves some lacing. Aroma is sweet, dark malts, molasses, herbs and dark bread. Sweet and slightly tart, a bit of burnt sugar and dandelion. Medium to full body and gentle carbonation. Definitely interesting and pretty nice.

Crash (532) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2005
Pours black with tiny fizzy off-white head. Aroma is malty towards bread. Flavor is a combination of sweet with a small amount of bitter. The finish is fizzy metallic.

Flanny (24) - Severn, Maryland, USA - MAR 5, 2005
Very black, and a deep crimson when seen through bright light. Head is frothy and beige. Flavor is smooth and malty, and it finishes dry. Nary a trace of bitterness. A nice smooth and easy drinking porter.

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - MAR 1, 2005
Pours as black as stout with a palamino head. Aroma is light and difficult to detect, but with subtle smokiness and deep alcohol tones. Flavor is very raw and malty with little complexity and a light molasses/sorgham quality. Some chocolate notes peak through. Hops are nearly undetectable. Palate is smooth and rather undefined. Overall, raw and plain.

frankenkitty (2008) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - FEB 23, 2005
Bottle poured near black with a creamy, rocky, mostly lasting head. (I had to hold it up to a halogen bulb to see traces of a blackberry hue.) Very nice lacing. Nose of molasses, prunes and autumn leaves. Burnt coffee/toffee flavor. Full-bodied. Slighlty oily mouthfeel. Mildly sweet finish with a ting of alcohol. Closer to a stout than a porter. I shouldve bought more!

heemer77 (5344) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - FEB 22, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2005 Pours with a black body with just a little bit of dark ruby coming through. A large light tan head tops that black beer. Pears and a hint of fresh tobacco in the aroma. The taste is smoky malt with nuts and some vanilla in the finish. Hints of figs. This gets richer with some coffee as you go through the glass. Creamy mouthfeel.

Aureth (20) - Knoxville, Iowa, USA - FEB 20, 2005
Bottle, purchased in Illinois I was pleasantly surprised by this beer after some earlier bad experiences with Baltika products. Its very dark, with a tan head that doesnt last very long. Flavors of coffee, dark chocolate and tofee predominate, along with a little roastiness in the flavor. Very smooth and full bodied. Clean finish, not much hop presence.
