Pours deep black with tan head with good density. Aromas of coffee, malt, fruit and chocolate. Flavors are similar with roasted malt, strong coffee, slightly smokey with a bitter finish. Thin mouthfeel with a little bite on the back of the tongue. Overall it is a tasty brew with good malt and hop balance. Coffee aftertaste hangs around a little long though.

Whilst not the strongest Baltic Porter by any means in terms of alcohol, at 7% ABV, this is certainly one of the sweetest and most cloying. I also think the lack of carbonation helped to make it feel almost like watered down treacle. As Goldilocks might have put it, this one is too sweet!

Cerveja russa. Forte. Cheiro muito bom, torrado, suavemente adocicado, malte e chocolate, tons de alcool bem encaixado. Negra, com uma espuma cremosa de boa formao ambar. Aveludada, suave caramelo e chocolate no sabor. Gros torrados presente. Notas soltas de alcool. Retrogosto torrado e bom amargor.

Thin porter-typical head, fishy aluminum aroma. Burnt malt flavor, tangy finish. Below average, despite appealing appearance.

Black pour, only lets hints of ruby show through good light. Huge light tan head. Aroma of dry chocolate and malts. Flavor is robust bitter chocolate, roasty malts, alcohol. Long bitter chocolate finish. Pretty decent brew.

Bottle. Very dark brown to nearly black with frothy off-white head. Aroma of dark malts and dark fruit with a bit of sweetness. Flavor of dark roasted malt, black cherries and raisins with that same sweetness. Good mouthfeel. Not too heavy and clean. I liked this a lot.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2015 "Must try beer", even if you are not a fan of the monster brew 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. Also: sophisticated leather taste. Very special and very different . CUIR DE RUSSIE.

Appearance: A dark brown, possibly black color. Very opaque. No way of seeing through this one. Not much head, but I was trying to avoid it. Smell: Sweet and malty. No hops to speak of, but a very pleasing molasses aroma accompanies the malt. Taste: Molasses suspicions have been confirmed. Its sweet and caramel-y and not at all bitter. A slight toasty taste, but hidden behind the sweetness. Mouthfeel: Full-bodied, very smooth. Chewy and satisfying. Drinkability: Good, but I probably wouldnt have a whole lot in one sitting just because of the very strong flavors. That being said, I think its delicious.
