COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional dark beer based on old recipes. "Baltika" brews this beer with the best dark and light malts with the addition of superior hop types and a special strain of yeast. Crystal-clear water and the secret touch of "Baltika"s brewers make this a beer of unsurpassable quality.
The ingredients are water, caramel malt and burnt roasted malt, maltose syrup and hops. 17

Leaner than some Baltic Porters, but still carries a few extra pounds in its treacly, winey body.

mcberko (16033) - 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 Im used to for a porter - definitely Baltikas best beer by far.

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.

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

FatPhil (15124) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 11, 2007
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...

Benzai (14789) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 6, 2011
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.

bhensonb (14615) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 9, 2006
The mouthfeel is a bit thin. Its a bit fizzy. Aroma of toast and chocolate? Finish is chocolate and a light bitterness. A fruity ester I cant attribute. Its not Gonzo, but its good.
