Bottle at home. Has a black colour with a small light brown head. Sweet aroma of dark chocolate and leather. The flavour is sweet as well along with lactose, brownies and coffee. Slick mouth feel, and has a light bitterness. A sweet but good beer, almost like a dessert on its own.

Pours black with an off white head. My tulip is showing pretty much no lacing. The head quickly dissipates to a thin ring around the glass. The ring falls back down to the liquid with every sip. Nice molasses, dark fruit, and toffee pleasantly greet the nose. I also get notes of caramel and a little alcohol. Molasses and burnt malts dominate an abundantly sweet flavor. It gives way to a sweet raisin-licorice-molasses finish. Raisins, dark fruit, and sugar linger long on the palate. I’m not tasting any of the alcohol in the nose. It may be overwhelmed by all the sweetness. It does manage, however, to warm the throat- assuring its presence. This porter weighs heavy on the tongue, and is a little syrupy- but, not silky. it’s like heavy water- if that makes any sense. There is moderate carbonation to add some interest, I guess. Overall: eh. This is, by no means, a "good beer". It does have an interesting nose and flavor that lean on dark fruits and raisins- as opposed to the common chocolate and malts. Interesting? Yes. Good? No. Grand Imperial Porter stands out among porters. Unfortunately, other porters are better.

Bamsen78 (2993) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2013
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy dark brown with airy light tan head. Clear aroma of malt, caramel and raisins. Sweet, malty flavour with roasty and caramellish notes, ending with roasted coffee touches. Creamy mouthfeel. A decent Baltic Porter, indeed.

Grzesiek79 (3148) - Radom, POLAND - MAR 24, 2013
Dobry w smaku, tresciwy i wyrazisty. Mocno i intensywnie ciemny. Mala piana i szybko znika. Porter zywiecki znacznie lepszy, slodowy karmelowy i slodki, troche w koncowce nut palonych i czekoladowych, a takze jakby skorupa orzecha wloskiego.

OD40oz (773) - Box Elder, South Dakota, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Pours pitch black with a tan head. Smooth creamy palate with a chocolaty, coffee taste. Smells like chocolate covered cherries. This was a great brew, one of the best porters I’ve had!
