UPDATED: JUN 8, 2014 A wonderful example of my favorite style. I had this back-to-back with the Weltenberger Kloster Asam Bock, which I also love, and they were frighteningly similar, like doppelgangers of one another *rim shot*

Bottle 500ml. Masterpiece. Chocolate, raisins, and vanilla. Sweet, with bitter notes, and long length. Palate is creamy, and full bodied. Black, with a frothy off-white head.

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!

chocolate, coffee, nuts, a tint of alcohol, black, hazy, rocky head, tan foam, light sweetness, medium bitterness, full body, creamy, long finish... One of the best beers made by polish brewers!

16 ounce bottle. I think this was purchased at Corti Brothers in Sacramento, CA. Aroma is sweet, chocolatey, musty, with some molasses and burnt tires, too. A bit oxidized. Nice. Moderately transparent mahogany body with a medium tan head that is pretty strong. Wow...this is pretty decadent stuff. Starts with some sweet molasses goodness, before it becomes a little oxidized in the middle with hints of cardboard. Finishes with some sweet, sugary chocolate maltiness. Ethanol is hidden nicely. There is a velvety body to this, which makes it extremely drinkable. Now this is what I call a Baltic Porter!

Black with a big long lasting tan head. Aroma is very rich with raisin, licorice, dark fruits, chocolate, Taste is very sweet, full body, slick feel, soft carbonation.

Cantabrian (775) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 5, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2013 I have no problem with the label statement about this being the quintessential flavour of black beer. Wow, what a ride! The beer is dark brown, black as a shoe on the glass, with a light tan head - a persistent one - breathing nice aromas of plums, dates, roasted malts and Lebkuchen. Certainly there’s a peaty smokiness that it’s more evident on the woody taste, among a fabulous complexity of chocolates, brown sugars, Lübeck treats, dried fruits, treacle, cross-buns, sweet soy sauce and a nice vegemite bitterness, never any offensive, but which balances perfectly any overwhelming pain from the range of sweet challenges to the tastebuds. The beer is full bodied, slick and oily, post soviet sexy, insinuating, incorporating the Balticness in all its character, as a good Polish porter should. I could bathe in it and get turned on, no shame about it.

MiP (13478) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2013 Bottle, 8%. Nice caramelly aroma. Clear dark brown colour. Nice stable light brown head. Good bready flavour, nicely caramelly and sweet. Good alcohol level to balance. Low carbonation. Very nice. 8 4 8 4 16

Bottle, 8.0%. Good roasted and caramelly aroma. Very dark brown colour with a red shine, seems clear. Small stable light brown head. The flavour is sweet and nicely oxidised. Sweet and creamy finish. Tastes exactly like a German Doppelbock, and a damn good one at that. 8 4 9 4 17

RuneStumo (2143) - FŘRRESFJORDEN, NORWAY - NOV 27, 2010
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.
