I am drink mine at almost a month past the expiration date but a 7% porter should hold up really well UNLIKE like your light lager sand light pale ales. I am partial to this style. I like how the dark fruit notes are not too overpowering. Porters are my favorite year round availability style of beer and this one is up there with the best of um. Cheers! A- (90-94) score range

This brew pours dark in color...deep brown with reddish highlights. Slim chocolate-milk colored head. The aroma is malty...think pale and dark dry malt extract. Not much complexity beyond that. The taste is sweet and malty. Not much depth...lots of light roasted notes and more than enough sweetness. Worse as it warmed. Full in body. Not a great beer.

I believe it is the first time I am having a Baltic Porter so I cannot compare with how they are supposed to taste like, but I really liked this one.

Look: Dark brown with a one inch mocca colored head

Aroma: chocolate, hint of dark fruits

Taste: Mild roasted malts, caramel, chocolate, dark fruits such as figs maybe raisins. Alcohol barely noticeable.

Feel: medium body, easy drinking

Dark brown with a ruby tinge when held to the light. Opaque. Topped with 3 fingers of beige, foamy head.

Smells of vanilla, chocolate, and cherries. Slightly fruity.

The taste is initially of chocolate and cherries, then turns into long lasting black liquorice, slightly sweet, toasted notes, but no abrasive charring.

Medium, slightly bready body, moderate to low carbonation. Hidden ABV.

Got this in Chiang Mai, drinking it here Oct 4th, 2017. Really drinkable, smooth, good beer. Excellent rep for the style as far as drinkability.

Just a quick review of my first beer from Baltika (Балтика). Poured into a standard pint glass from a 1 pint, .9oz bottle.

Look: very dark brown, almost black. Very small head of off white foam. Quickly dissipating lace.
Smell: Molasses and caramel malt dominate the smell. Slight nuttiness / breadiness in the finish.
Taste: Dominant molasses again, even balance of caramel malt. Very similar to the non-alcoholic beverage Malta Goya, which is brewed with barley and hops like beer, but with a very recognizable caramel flavor profile balanced by molasses. SurprI fly fruity flavors linger, similar to dried apricots.
Feel: light body, medium carbonation, slightly sticky but smooth.

Overall a pretty good porter! I think my perception is slightly skewed by that Malta agota beverage that I drank so much as a kid. Not the best, but a very drinkable porter.

S: molasses, chocolate, nut, toffee, low alcohol and moderate ester aromas that suggest stone fruit. No harsh or burnt, sour or tart aromas.

L: pours dark brown with ruby highlights as streams of small bubbles rush to the surface. The 1/2" foam cap is cream to light tan with moderate retention.

T: palate starts nutty, malty sweet with dark dried fruit and soft alcohol. As it warms, figs come out more with light toffee notes and a hint of plum. Hop flavor and bitterness are medium low. There is nothing harsh or burnt. The balance is to the malt.

F: The beer is smooth with a medium full to full body and mild soft alcohol warming. Carbonation is medium.

O: This is a very drinkable beer with no harsh flavors.
