On Baltika Dark Lager.

Between 7.62x25 and Baltika beer, I'm developing something of a soft spot for Russia. They don't seem to be big on subtlety, and sometimes green tea and airguns just doesn't cut it.

There's about eight different products by them at ¡BevMo!, and so far they're 2 for 2. I've already waxed poetic about their Stout. The number six dark lager is very dark indeed, with a much richer color than, say, Newcastle. In the grand scheme of lagers, this is about as heavy and malty as they get, while retaining the sparkling hoppiness one expects of lager.

It is, in summary, awesome.
