3.08/5  rDev -8.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

A: Well hazed coppery autumn color with a lively head of dense bleached orange foam. Lots of lace. Medium to medium low level of carbonation.

S: Rich notes of dark malts and heavy notions of wheat. A mild rye bread character is present, along with the slightest hint of yeast.

T: Very strong wheat and dough notes dominate, with sweet maltiness and grain overtones. A touch of bitterness toward the finish, with a carmel taste just at the finish.

M: Flat and bland. Like swampy water. Not a lot of carbonation or excitement i'm afraid.

D: Fair. I could have it again, but not on a regular basis.

Notes: Oddly enough, even though this beer wasn't great, for some reason it makes me look forward to trying the rest of the #'s in the Baltika line.

3.54/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pours out to a nice buff, creamy head that falls to a creamy ring that persists. no significant lacing. Color is reddish dark brown and filtered clarity. Aroma is caramelized malts, molasses, honey graham crackers with a slight wisp of spicy hops. Flavor is malty and sweet but not as sweet as the nose implies. No discernible hops on the tongue. Mouthfeel is thin and sticky. Overall, a decent quaff that is worthy of repeating.
