The fact of the matter is, Baltika does another solid job of providing a nice quality, value for money beer.
Pours jet black, with the usual large head that receedes to yield the typically spotty, creamy head with some nice lacing. Very large mouthfeel, creamy satisfying beginning and end, with a little unexpected bitter bite in the finish.
7% ABV is very, very well disguised in thick, sweet malts with some lovely balance. Very filling and satisfying brew. Good job.
