RuneStumo (2240) - 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.

ALLOVATE (2468) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 22, 2010
Produces a deepest, darkest cola brown and oily, viscous yet reserving of a mochaccino whipped-up pad of tannish foam. Along the glass fine beads of carbonation move hesitantly to the surface. A trail of fine lace adheres itself in webs as it wanes. Deeply nutty, heavily roasted, and savoury rich fruit cake nose (raisins, prunes, demerara sugar, caramelised butter, the list goes on..) layered, upon layered with hints of salty kecap manis and nori, wafts of oaked sherry, damp, mossed wood, leather and molasses, firkin yum!!! Thick, treacly, syrupy body. So rich, so sweet, so bitter, so balanced from first cold sip to last warm one. Huge smoky, charred wood, burnt sugar and molasses presence just fills the mouth so well with a viscosity of thick silken fluid. Hints of rich chocolate mudcake, fresh kilned bitter cacao beans, peaty wood, ash, vanilla beans, cherry khoulis, kecap manis and heavily aged port join the volley of flavour pronouncing wicked vibes on my taste buds. The alcohol well masked, subdued but would be a welcome addition to it’s substantial complexity. Velvety, smooth and oh so long finish leaves the mouth reeling. Just lasts and lasts, I loved it. A pint bottle was way more than adequate this would suit being sold in nip glasses. A dessert beer for its sweetness, a winter beer for its complexity and a night cap beer for its impact, Grand!!! (50cL, no date stamp, bought back in 2008 from the Beer Store Morley)

Half liter bottle pours a perfect mahogany with thick mocha head. The aroma offers up blueberry, concord grape jam, a bit of roast, a bit of earthiness and then some chocolate. The taste is just down right yummy and it only seems to get better the more I consume. It starts with blueberry, and concord grape like in the nose and also heads into some malt roastiness, a nice level of earthiness and then some chocolate brownie. Wow! Love it. It finishes with a thin layer of chocolate blueberry nectar sweetness and lingering earthiness and malt roastiness. Damn and only $2.59 for a half liter bottle.

bpreo (1749) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - MAY 21, 2011
Listed as a Baltic Porter, advertised as an Imperial Porter. If there is such a beer, this is the one. Really sweet flavor, chocolate and coffee are obvious. Dig it.

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.

Fluxing (372) - POLAND - NOV 10, 2014
Warka 09.02.2014, wiec ok. 9 msc po terminie. Kolor ciemnorubinowy, przejrzyste, klarowne. Piana obfita, powoli opada do grubej warstwy i pozostawia niezly lejsing. W aromacie typowy porter, moze nie jakos super wylezakowany, ale nie ma ani grama alkoholu, jest sporo kawy, gorzkiej czekolady, karmelu, pojawiaja sie delikatne, sliwki, rodzynki, morele i wisnie. W smaku podobne jak w aromacie, delikatnie kwaskowate, bardzo rzeskie. W odczuciu idealnie gladkie, nisko wysycone, niesamowicie pijalne jak na portera. Goryczka niska, ziolowa i kwiatowa, delikatnie sciagajaca.

Butters (3848) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 14, 2011
Magnificent black pour with ample brown head. Very sweet plum and raisin and chocolate. Vanilla and tootsie roll on the aftertaste. Very good especially considering the value price of just $3 for a 500ml bottle. Moderately thick and chewy. Good stuff
