A sugar bomb of a strong porter. Like dessert in a glass. A pint is way too much dessert for my taste. It would pair pretty well with chocolate cake or a mousse but on its own those sugars are overwhelming. Looks good: lush, pillowy head with a dark body. First sniff and Iím anticipating a sugar monster - very sweet. Dominated by molasses. Also marshmallows and some of those hard candy necklaces. First sip and itís sweet alright. All I can taste is brown sugar. Bit of chocolate, spoonful of treacle, handful of raisins, faint alcoholic burn. No complexity, no subtlety - just liquid sugar. Lightly carbonated - under-done in my book. Itís not that itís badly made, itís just that itís well-made in the sense that Coca-Cola or a Krispy Kreme doughnut is well made - if you can stomach either of those youíll probably love this. (Pint bottle from Leura Cellars. BB 27/11/14)

0,5l fles meegebracht uit gdansk. Zwart met een mooie bruine kraag. Smaak en geur zijn bovenal zoet, met caramel, chocolade en vanille, daarnaast ook wat muf. Zeker een fijn bier.

ninecats (330) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - JUL 23, 2015
50 cl bottle, bought at a random shop in Gdynia, Poland. My bottle says 8,0% ABV. Bottled 2010, best before 2015. Deep dark brown/black, big beige head, quickly dissipating leaving lots of lacings. Aroma is soft roasted malt, coffee, vanilla, slight paint. Taste is softly balanced by coffee, vanilla, malt, and a finish thatís more sweet than bitter. Well hidden alcohol. Big body, soft carbo. Good!

Bottle from Polish Stanley's house of Borscht.. . Cola, blackened metal, and dark malt .. Mouth is a tad light .. Rather nice, albeit light .. . . Is that cat doing lines of Parmesan cheese?! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slautar (126) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JUL 19, 2015
Smak i aromat rzeczywiście bogaty chociaż rozmijający się z moimi oczekiwaniami. Od porterůw bałtyckich chcę kawy i gorzkiej czekolady z delikatnym dodatkiem karmelu (a jeszcze lepiej bez karmelu). Tu dostaję coś czego długo nie potrafiłem określić co mi na tyle nie dawało spokoju, że spędziłem ładnych kilkanaście minut z nosem przy szyjce butelki by w końcu znaleźć deskryptor - chleb razowy z miodem (ale miodem użytym w trakcie pieczenia a nie jako smarowidło na kanapkę).

Nonshaugen (46) - Fetsund, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2015
Baltic porter. New experience. 50cl bottle, 8% ABV, Deep brown, two finger head in the glass, dying down fast. Aroma and taste is cherry, dark fruits, alcohol, dark chocolate and a hint of cocoa. Full body, soft carbonation, long finish, not very bitter, but quite sweet. "Piwem Roku 2010" and "best before october 23. 2015" on the label. Does that mean itís brewed in 2010 and stored for nearly 5 years? Bottle itself is a collectorís item, happy to have this one on my display shelf.

butelka, warka 8.07/2015 (czyli chwilke po terminie). Wyglad pozytywnie, choc piana nietrwala. aromaty tradycyjnie: sliwki (duzo sliwek), czekolada, kawa, palonosc, pumpernikel, pralinki. smak sie zgadza z tym mniej wiecej, slodko, ale tez duzo kwaskowatosci, moze troche za duzo jej nawet. dosc pelne, nisko nagazowane. bardzo dobre.

RafeAU (390) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - JUL 11, 2015
Bottle from Civic IGA, Canberra. i like the chocolate and coffee notes but this beer is very sweet and quickly becomes cloying. I struggled to get through a half bottle (250 ml) and needed something refreshing afterwards.

JFGrind (1912) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 9, 2015
Strong Baltic Porter with roasted malt, coffee, and licorice flavors. Bitterness balances out this beer. Picked up a fancy 500ml bottle for two bucks at Roger Wilco Pennsauken. A great buy.

Bottle at Hotel Gdansk. Very dark pour, some red highlights. Tan tall foam. Smooth, some dark fruit sweetness. Touch of leather. Balances and is clean. Sweet first sip but it mellows. Iím enjoying this.
