3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark. Big tan head, nice lacing. Aroma is pretty straightforward, there’s malt in there and it’s fairly sweet. Flavor is quite nice, a little sweet, but it has some vinous notes and hides it’s alcohol (lower, granted) better than Okocim. Very enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to porter glass. Aroma is herbal and like some kind of green plant. Taste is mostly roasted malt with hop balance. Finish is decent. Good carbonation. Very different from European and American porters.

This was more like a schwarzbier than a porter. It poured black with a tan head. The aroma was malty and thick. The body is full and the taste is packed with dried fruit flavors and a bit of a coffee note with an ample bitterness on the end. It’s a bit like a holiday fruit cake. I will drink this beer again.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(50 cl bottle) Black with a beige head. Aroma is licorice, dried fruits, cocoa, dark bread, molasses. Very subdued hints of hoppy aroma. Taste is rather sweet, hardly any bitterness. Soft carbonation, sticky texture, full body. Very warming, and alcohol not well disguised. Just not my kind of beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown, and a bit red with a light brown head. This smells great, like vanilla cream, malty, and caramel. Flavour matches the aroma, but is a bit more bitter and watery than expected. Very sweet. Can taste a bit of chocolate lingering on the tongue.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown with a big, light brown head. Roasted malt and a bit of chocolate in the nose. A bit thin for the ABV, but very drinkable, a "ladies porter". The alcohol is very well hidden.
Mild bitterness in the aftertaste.

I really enjoyed this porter. Had a great taste to it and it went down very smooth. Appearance was dark with little head to it as I poured it.
