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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle from Tres Bonne Cuisine. Drank at cellar temperature. Pours out a totally black color with a medium cream colored head. A very nice nose; sweet toasted malts, chocolates, sugars. A flavor that defines the Baltic Porter; sweet dry malts, chocolate, smooth, chalky, heavily roasted. Very nice. Smooth as velvet.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle that brags about containing the "quintessence or the black beer flavour." It’s a rich beer, no doubt, though not impy stout rich. Chocolate malt and the usual dark beer stuff. Moderate roastiness to it, and perhaps a touch of smoke. What didn’t do it for me was the notes of anise, which admittedly isn’t unheard of for the style. So i think it’s a bit overrated.

Courtesy of Armando629, thanks! Poured dark brown with a beige, lacing, creamy head. Plum, roasted malts, licorice, ash, molasses, hints of burnt wood in the aroma. Medium dense, oily body, medium carbonation. Sweet taste and aftertaste. Alcohol well hidden. Good one!
