3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0,5 l bottle. Bought in Berlin, drank it from the bottle in a train across Germany. Upon first sip you get blasted by heavy coffee and roasted malt aromas that completely dominate the taste from then on. Only later are fruit and chocolate aromas becoming traceable. The aftertaste is, as expected, sweet and very dry. Great beer, of course, but still kinda one - dimensional, due to the prevalence of coffee aromas.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Süß-röstiger Antrunk, nicht sehr intensiv, hintergründig ist das Bier immer sehr mild. Wenig röstiger werdend, die Süße weicht einer milden Herbe. Erst im Abgang ansprechend malzig wozu die Herbe dann auch passt. Wenig würzig, süffig. Minimal kaffeeartig, im Abgang passend. Ansprechendes Porter in dem das Malz einen zu großen Stellenwert hat, gleichzeitig könnte das Bier intensiver sein.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle under the name Witnicki Porter. Pours a blackish color with some reddish notes comming through, with a small beige head. Aroma is of burnt and roasted malt, sweet brown sugar, dark fruit and a touch of alcohol. The flavor is again quite roasted with the burnt note, along with dark fruit like raisins, molasses, brown sugar and some sugary sweetness. The body is medium with a slightly creamy and dry mouthfeel. Overall a pretty solid Baltic Porter.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Well, the Poles do make a number of quite good (and quite similar) Baltic Porters. The Witnica version is nicely fermented raisiny, touch-of-fruitcake in the aroma, with a wonderful alternating sweet-and-sourness to the flavor. Pumpernickel bread in a bottle, with fruit. Totally similar in quality and style to the Ciechan, body a bit more sturdy (head dies but is resurrectable). Good beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, shared with Palme. This must be my first Polish micro brew, so I’m kinda excited. Pours a near-black deep brown body with a small off-white head. Aroma is sweet malts, hints of leather and raisins. Taste has more sweet malts, hints of leather and licorice. Some burnt toast in there, too. A decent Baltic, but nothing too awesome is going on here. I guess there’s still some way to go for the micro brewers of Poland before they are able to mimic the larger breweries on home field.

0.5l shared with ClubGonzo. Pours a deep brown body with a red hue and a quite bubbly off-white head. Aroma is sweet and malty with dark dried fruits, raisins and chocolate. Body is sweet and sticky and the carbonation is medium. Tastes are straightforward sweet and vinous with notes of red fruits and a dominate caramel flavor. Sweet alcoholic finish with a medium chocolate aftertaste.

I’ve already had the 9.4%, gave it a 4.6 rating. This beer has the best aroma of any beer out there. Taste is really good, sweet, smooth. Excellent Baltic Porter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crarny Bottle. Pours a dark bruin body with a tan head and thin retention. Roasted malt tones, dark fruit notes, cherries, plums and a fig note. A bit vinous with the underlying fruit sweetness and the medium etoh notes. Light roastiness. Pretty nice offering.
