Black Boss Porter has a medium, beige head, a good amount of thick lacing, and a dark-brown (ruby under light) appearance. The aroma is of smoke, chocolate, and coffee. Taste is of cocoa powder, charcoal, dark cherries, dark coffee, dark-roasted malt, and sweetness. Alcohol shows up in the aftertaste to some extent. The mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Black Boss Porter finishes heavy, semi-dry, and not particularly difficult to drink. Overall, this is a mild, pleasant, and potent Polish beer. I like it. RJT

Whole Foods, Fairfax 500ml ($3): Pours a dark brown with a quickly dissipating light brown head. Aroma is a bunch of fruit and roasted malt. Beer itself is really sweet, even for a Baltic Porter. It wasnt exactly cloying, but I can imagine that it would be for some people. There was some complexity in taste, and this was a welcome coming home present for myself after 70 Scandinavian beers.

Roasty, caramelly, aroma. Pours dark brown with an amber tint, and a thick tan head. Moderately sweet with a roasty bitterness. A little caramel taste with a slightly sharp acidic finish. Full body. Good beer

Hussey (60) - North Carolina, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Bottle @ Bestway. Pour: Rich brown, tawny appearance. Opaque beauty with thin collar of foam. Aroma: Leathery, cocoa, almost a cigar/tobacco-like aroma. Notes of dark fruit also. Taste: A big porter! Immediate warming from the alcohol. Roasted malt forward brew with a hint of molasses and coffee flavors. Definitely a sipper. A muscular brew. Aggressive mouthfeel. Overall: A freak of a porter, IMHO. Very enjoyable but volatile and potent. After tasting, rating, and finishing this particular bottle, my wife noted that i "smelled like a campfire". Once you imbibe this baltic porter, it literally seeps out of your pores.

Strong coffee and maple syrup. Clear garnet black, medium yellow head. Flavor of strong coffee, a bit on the sweet side. Cherries are present as well. There is an unpleasant cane sugar sweetness on the back end.

Black. Smells like chocolate. Tastes like a mild coffee. Thin tan head. Hearty yet smooth.

A very smooth porter. I enjoyed it very much. The taste isnt overwhelming, and it has a hint of molasses. Very sweet, highly recommended.

Hints of sweetness to this one with a tad bit of roasted flavors. Its super dark with very little head. Id raise another glass of this one to Poland...

Yup...its a Baltic porter. Looking at me from the glass with its minimal head, the light umber glow at the edges of the dark fluid...beckon. Nose of black patent malt which transitions to first taste along with a cartload of mixed choco-malts. big bold and sweet. Alcohol ridden. I needed a buffer of some sourdough pretzels to balance all this out. Even so, the finish stops abruptly and the body just keeps on coming down the grade into the sharply banked turns, rolls over the finish for a spectacular train wreck.
