Baltika 6 Porter

Baltika 6 Porter

Ratebeer 3.47 94th percentile
Beer Advocate B

It is sad that all we can get in BC is the Baltika #3 Pale Lager.

Taste +5

As the beverage warms up, you can pick out aromas of light roast, chocolate and alcohol. It was oddly faint for a big alcohol beer. The taste was a big bigger and sweeter than expected. Baltika was heavy on the chocolate malts, roast with a unique menthol cooling. The mouthfeel was medium-full and slightly acid like a coke. The alcohol warmth/burn came across as a cooling sensation. There was a slight metallic and earthiness to it also. I'm sure there were hops, but the sweetness hid everything.

Aftertaste +2

It was long with an alcohol burn and roasted chocolate.

Alcohol Content +1 7%

You would never know it. The sweetness hides all.

Value +1

I liked this porter; it was a little on the sweet side.

Ingame Enhancement +1

Now things are getting a little silly with the L4D maps. Last night we battled a spiked ball of mud with a laser-beam eyeball. At least the beer was good.

Overall 10/10

I admit that I like a good porter. This one was a little on the sweet side, but the abundance of chocolate, roast and alcohol cooling made it a winner for me.
