I would have liked a more robust malt backbone.

I get the chocolate, fruit, and malts. Taste kind of like Iced Coffee. Thick head that quickly dissipates. I don't know if its just me but i get some Hefe notes. Really good porter. Cheers!!

Very plain and boring. It's bready and malty. It's alright

This is a nice porter with a strong metallic note. Pours deep brown almost black with a brownish foam head with nice retention. Smell is right for the style, chocolate, coffee, dark malts, some minerals.

Not sure what I'm missing this was a $1.99 and a phenomenal porter smell and taste of dark fruit dipped in a hot chocolate bath so smooth a little thin but very well done keep giving it a low rating will keep price low for me cheers

Baltika is not known as the Russian River of Russia but don't let their other poor entries keep you away from trying this. At $2.50 a pint this is a relatively high quality and complex Baltic Porter. Strong chocolate malt and dark fruit, this finishes with dry coffee and licorice.

Thanks to Detente and other subsequent relations we have Russian brewskis. This one come in a shapely half liter bottle, let's give it a whirl. Popping the top I get a waft of molasses and black licorice. This brew pours to a opaque motor oil black with a four finger tan multi sized bubble creamy head that recedes slowly and laces. Taste on this brew is a roasted malt up front quickly sweet and chaulky bitter but balanced with a clingy dry bitter finish. Mouthfeel is light the backbone is not big but the carbonation is good. Purchased at Carulla for $2.33 US, not bad. Nastrovia.

Middle of the road porter. Many better options out there for the price. 2.5's are proper.

Strong Baltic Porter. Pours very dark from the half liter bottle with a small tan head. Sweetish taste, but not overly so. Worth a try! Drinkable.
