4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Very dark brown, beige head. Rich aroma of licorice and dark bread. Full bodied with soft mouthfeel. Rich flavours of tobacco, licorice and brandy. I have often wondered what a Polish porter from a brewery that makes good lagers would taste like, when even the worst brewers do decent porters. This is the answer - excellent!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours ruby-tinged brown with a large, quickly fading head.
Nose shows roasted malt, chocolate liqueur, booze, soft vegemite.
Flavours are less roasty, much sweeter. Lots of toasty melanoidin malt and faint chocolate. Too sweet for my liking though.
Could use much more carbonation, very syrupy body.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2011 500ml bottle. Thick blackish-brown, with a massive beige-brown head. The aroma is sweet and sugary, some fruit laced chocolate. Not really that great of a beer, rather thin and lacks depth, and is too strong to really session and enjoy. Lots of prune notes, like you mixed chocolate milk and prune juice. I really get no hop character. Sweet, malt extract taste. Not unlike a sweet Dunkel or Caribbean Stout in it’s overwhelming fruity chocolate sugariness, but this is a Mocne at heart. Not one I’d buy again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500mL bottle. Poured slightly cloudy medium brown with a short, tight-bubbled khaki head. The aroma picked up lots of warm, deep, sweet sugars.. honey, maple, and molasses notes led.. touches of orange peel and spruce accented.. a touch of warmth. but the boozage remained well masked by the sweets.. way over-sweetened, but I was feeling that tonight. The flavor found the same sweet sugars, but in similar proportions.. a touch smoky too.. a little grainy bitterness around.. nothing spectacular, but I’d probably drink it again. Medium-bodied, and mightily sweet on the palate.. flowed well through the mouth.. solid brew.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours jet black with a thick cappachino coloured head. Smells like a dark chocolate fudge brownie. A bit of dank earthiness in there. Nice medium thick mouthfeel but not cloying. Dark chocolate, vanilla and a little red fruit in there. Not picking up much malt and no hop flavours. Not overly sweet but would go well with clotted cream ice cream covered in chocolate sauce. Almost more like a strong chocolate beer than a porter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark-chocolate brown with a giant cappuccino head. Oh, if only there were as many slang terms for parts of beer as there are for parts of the human body, then all my reviews would sound quite the same! Flavor is saucy mole, sweet chocolate caramel syrup. Aroma is rich and fills the nostrils. Medium body. Light touch of spiced hop bitterness, like a dab of whipped cream. Smooth. Great BP!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 mL bottle from Total Wine West Richmond, VA. Pours a dark brown color with a medium tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of roasted malts, raisins, chocolate, earthy notes. The taste is cherries, raisins, chocolate, roasted malts, anise and a faint hoppy finish. Medium-full bodied, soft carbonation and a faint bit of booze. Nice.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2012 Euro style 500ml bottle from "Lifesource", S.Salem. $2.45
Very very classy bottle presentation.
Deep deep black beer with a very nice frothy,bubbly tan head.
Fine dark,deep dank coffee,toast,dark chocolate,fig aroams assault the nose,pickin up some cream, and slight funk..very nice.
Sweet side of Baltic Porter here..sweet with creamy undertones and figs/date fruitiness,bitter coffee after taste.
Ok on the tongue..slightly less than expected but that enhances drinkability.
Good beer for a cheap price..thinking this would be an excellent Christmas dinner dessert beer.
