Bib bottle from Barunis in Baden, PA. Pleasantly surprised by just how good this was coming all the way from mother Russia. Drinking this made me proud to have the heritage and eager to try the other Baltikas which I hope to do very soon.

One of my favorite porters of all-time. The tones of coffee and caramel are present and taste so amazing. You will want more after finishing the bottle

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2010 Dark brown with reddish tints and towering creamy lasting head. Sweet chocolaty with a distinct raisin/winey flavor. Long malty finish with a full body. Notes of asphalt creep in near the end. A fine full-flavored porter.

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.

Baltika 6 Porter poured with a very large brown foam. The foam smelled and tasted like milk chocolate. The beer was black with no light showing through it. This is the darkest beer I have ever had. There was little carbonation in the beer itself. Taste is definitely a coffee/chocolate/fruit (with fruit being the least). I can even say it reminds me of a dry wine to some point. This is an extremely creamy beer with plenty of body. The aftertaste was VERY slightly bitter, more than half the bitterness as the American beers. The number 6 is definitely worth buying. I dont think I can compare this beer to any American made dark....but I am a novice, and am new to the dark porters. This is still a great buy.

I really cant think of anything to complain about with this one. It is one of the best porters Ive had. It was so very pleasant. I like the 7% ABV, and that it gives you a little over a pint. It is a dark, blackish brown with smoothness going down. Mmm, kudos to Baltika.

Single from Three Cellars Milwaukee. Tan full head, nice dark color. Very light and a bit sweet. I found the taste fuller when it wasnt so cold.

Pours rich, dark brown with a full, fluffy head. Smells salty and like seaweed and faintly of figs. Tastes like caramel and roastiness and crisp water. Medium-bodied with a creamy texture and light mouth-carbonation, Baltika 6 Porter finishes smooth and lightly sweet with a kind of funny after taste that still satisfies.
