Cantabrian (990) - 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.

Bottle in Amsterdam Beer & Bagels. Pours black with a fading tan head. Starts sticky and sweet with coffee and chocolate notes. Rich and really quite delicious. Very drinkable with the alcohol barely noticeable. Dangerous.

Quite interesting. Tastes like good kvass, but in other hand - decent ABV - 8%. Very roasty, nice amount of malts. Perfect summer refreshing beer. Price/performance=god!

Znakomity porter! Już od zapoznania butelki przyciąga mocą, dostojnością. Aromaty kawowo-czekoladowe, dość mocna goryczka. Alkohol w smaku nie wysuwa się na pierwszy plan - a to duży atut. Polecam.

Grand Imperial Porter jest trunkiem ciemnobrązowym, nieprzejrzystym w szklance który posiada ładne rubinowe refleksy. Tafla tego piwa jest zdobiona szarobeżową obfitą pianą, która dosyć szybko ulega redukcji do obwódki. W aromacie Granda mamy kawę, przyjemną słodycz, czekoladę, śliwkę w czekoladzie, lekki alkohol. Smak tego Porteru Bałtyckiego jest taki jak zapamiętałem mocno kawowy, czekoladowy, lekko alkoholowy z przyjemną niską goryczką (alkoholową,paloną). Duża zawartość alkoholu (8%) powoduje uczucie rozgrzania w przełyku. Do tego w odczuciu jest gładkie, lepkie.

Bardzo dobry porter bałtycki. Ładna piana, piękny ciemny kolor. Przyjemny czekoladowo-kawowy zapach. Smak bardzo dobry. Jaden z lepszych porterów bałtyckich.

Maris (1384) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAR 24, 2016
From a 500ml bottle on 24/3/2016. Pours close to black with a medium head. Has a powerful malty aroma of toffee and treacle. In the mouth, this is a very sweet beast, featuring oodles of caramel, toffee, butterscotch, treacle, golden syrup, some chocolate and dark dried fruit. The texture is slick and syrupy with the carbonation modest. Reminds me quite a bit of a Zywiec porter but with the sweetness dial turned right up. A marvellous dessert beer.

On tap at House of Beer, Krakow, two years ago. Black with short lasting creamy head. Chocolate, alcohol, blueberry’s and prunes. Quite sweet, bitter chocolate, dry finish. Full body, medium to high carbonation. A bit dry but otherwise excellent!
