Hints of sweetness to this one with a tad bit of roasted flavors. It’s super dark with very little head. I’d 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.

EvanFriend (303) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Burnt, coffee, and molasses notes, the 9.4% alcohol leaves a bit of a tingly feeling afterwards. This beer tastes great, but as others have mentioned, it does have a very thin, watery mouthfeel that you don’t expect from a porter. Best beer I’ve had from Poland by far though.

daknole (9044) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 29, 2012
Very dark brown color, light brown head. Flavor is roasty, some chocolate and espresso notes. Flavor is up front with cocoa, some plums, lots of carbonation here. Ok.

natejgood (390) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - APR 5, 2012
Pours a fairly clear dark brown with no head. Very dark, but not quite black. Aroma is of sweet licorice, barley and malt. Flavor of molasses, chocolate and wheat. A bit fuzzy in the mouth, but not too bad.

Snifter from bottle. A: weak nose cold, more prominent when warmer, slight malty sweetness, a little brown sugar, carmel, toffee App: incredibly dark with a brown shadow and a very dark amber core. One finger, frothy, tan head, slowly dispersing. T: sent from heaven to Browar to my glass. Excellent malt back of brown sugar, and dark fruit. P: sharp, fine bubbles, and goes down so smooth. The alcohol is completely hidden! One of, if not, the best of Baltic Porters!

Roasted, malty, chocolate, with a licorice flavor. Very tasty and unexpected from Poland.

Bottle. Pours dark brown, red-ruby hints. Minimal off-white head. Nose is chocolatey, with some roasted malts and anise character. Bit more coffee and chocolate on the tongue, more anise in a bigger way during the finish. Pretty drinkable, especially considering the ABV.
