3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark black with a creamy frothy head. Aromas of big toffee, caramel, roasted malt, and biscuit. Flavors of toffee, caramel, bread, slight nuttiness, and light biscuit. Medium sweet. No alcohol noticed. Light bitterness. Light roasted malt/toffee finish. Rated while watching the X-files. Mostly a dominant erosion of toffee maltyness which reminds mush of a bock.

Recenzja 10 lipca 2011 Zdecydowanie bardziej aromatyczny od innych polskich porterów. Mocno czekoladowy.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2013 Aroma is roast coffee beans. Head is beige; nice and lasting as a thick ring. Color is almost black with strong coffee reflections when facing sunlight. The taste is great. You can’t really feel the booze so much and that’s great for a porter! Taste is delicate and the finish is very mild. Very good, although a bit boring.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 mL bottle. Likely the best imperial porter I’ve tried. I didn’t realize that any level of depth was possible with this style. It looks like all of the others, and the nose smells like Boston brown bread, like many of the others. But there is something that I can only describe as a molasses booziness in the flavour that I find very appealing.
