Leaner than some Baltic Porters, but still carries a few extra pounds in its treacly, winey body. mcberko (17178) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 20, 2010
Bottle sampled at 99 Bottles, pours dark brown / black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and some sweetness. Flavour is similar - sweeter than I’m used to for a porter - definitely Baltika’s best beer by far. yngwie (17038) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle. A lightly reddish beer, dark brown to black in color, and with a dense, beige head on top. Coffee, roasted malts, some sweetness and some caramel in the arome. Medium to full body, soft on the palate, pleasant carbonation. Coffee, roasted malt and some dried fruits in the flavor, a touch of prunes. Lasting finish. A nice one, tasteful and pleasant. Well worth a revisit. 130202 jtclockwork (16443) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 5, 2010
Decent dryish porter. Blackish pour. Caramel notes on nose and palate. Okay. Dedollewaitor (16056) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2009
Bottle. Thank you Nightfall. Pours black with a small creamy head and lacings. Nose is fruit, roast and chocolate. Smooth. Lots of dark fruits. Vaguely roasted and dry end. Tasty.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2008 Blind tasting with Tranquility. 500ml bottle. Tight creamy and dark head, stays for ever. Aroma chocolatey. (On another bottle, I got gravy - meat and yeast.) Tastes like a hefty stout, some alcohol due to the 7%, full maltiness, not oppressingly burnt. As it gets warmer, there will be even bacon in the taste! Well rounded, make this the last 2 beers of the evening... MiP (15650) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2015 Bottle, 7.0%. Roasted and grainy aroma. Black colour, big stable light brown head. Sweetish flavour, dark bready, not very bitter. 6 3 6 3 16
Benzai (15458) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 6, 2011
Bottle, 7.0%. Rough tar aroma, hint of salt. Black colour. Small light brown head. The flavour is a lot like the aroma, rough and salty, but also with a bit of coffee and a vinous touch. 7 3 7 3 15
Black, though not completely opaque. In light a slight red glow is visible. About 1 cm beide head disappearing fast. Smell wort, coffee, roasted malts and dark chocolate. Light bitterness. Pretty complex taste all things considered. Taste is good, carbo ok, body medium to full. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2009 Til Bager: Bottle. dark dark brown - light brown head. Light roasted, chokolate, pilsner-like metallic and diacetyl, Nice balance - boring !!! - ReRate: Bottle - thanks Yespr. Dark dark chocolate brown - white head. Burned, berries, dark bread, light dryness, licorice, light sweetness. Nice. bhensonb (15093) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 9, 2006
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.
