3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 500ml. Very dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of dates, treacle, coffee. Taste is very sweet with dark sugars, dried and stewed fruits, soy sauce, sweet shop spices. Touches of Oloroso sherry are fine and are clearly part of the character of the beer. A little grassy bitterness struggles largely in vain against the sweetness. Pushing it on the sweetness for me, but worth it for the deep malt flavours.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Very dark ruby pour, almost black, with a fluffy tan head that lasts a little while. Aroma is sweet and malty with notes of milk chocolate, toffee, molasses, dark fruit, and vanilla. Flavour is very similar to aroma with additional notes of honey, coffee and some noticeable alcohol. Mouthfeel is light for the style, almost watery, with moderate carbonation and a lingering roasty, sweet finish with very little bitterness. Quite a good porter if a little two-dimensional, easy to drink but a little too sweet to be sessionable.

En ganska traditionell porter med en porlande syrlighet som ger ölet en frisk och fruktig kvalitet. Lockar inte fram några wow-känslor, men ger ändå god ränta på tiden man investerar.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
27.11.2010. 0,5l Bottle. Black colour with pale brown head. Very rich malty aroma with strong body. Bitter and aromatic hopping. Alcohol strength gives this beer the necessery power. Tastefull with roasted malts, dry bitter chocolate and dry bitterness. There is also some malty sweetness. This is a very good beer, some of the other polish baltic porters are to sweet, but this one is really good.

Bottle (50 cl), thanks gnoff. Dark reddish brown, medium beige head. Malty aroma with notes of fudge and chocolate, and some herbal hops. Medium bodied and smooth. Well balanced. This is a doppelbock in my book, and a very good such.
