Baltika #4 Original (Dark)

$2.19 Arbor Place Beverage, Douglasville, GA.

I must admit I was getting ready to be disappointed by this, thinking that it would be simply a poor quality import designed to con the locals by making them think it was something exotic. In the end I was very happily surprised.

Poured a beautiful deep red/brown color with some decent head and retention and some good lacing. Delightfully malty aroma that is replicated in the taste. The sweet malts really come through strong with no hint of bitterness. One of the “maltiest” beers of had in a long time. It finished really creamy and left me wanting more. The caramel highlights were – well – a highlight!

I expect this will be too sweet for many people, but I thought it was an excellent beer that I will visit again. Not necessarily one I would want to drink all the time, but a nice brew. Pleasantly surprised.
