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.

jlruthven (560) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 5, 2012
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.

Syzzer (592) - Oregon, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Good chocolatey burnt flavor. There is a mild smell that supports the sweet molasses taste

From Beerlicious iphone app: Smells of burnt malts. Brown clear color in the sun. Minimal Brown head. Medium bitterness finishing lighter with a touch of sour. Short duration. Medium/light body with a thin watery texture. Average Carbonation and an abrupt finish.

Iím not sure how old this bottle is, but itís at least 2 years old and drinking wonderfully. This classic Baltic porter is rich, full-bodied, and very flavorful. Itís not exactly black in color, but rather pours a dark-brown body with ruby highlights. Itís initially capped by a thin blanket of dark-tan head, but it recedes to a thin ring fairly quickly. The nose is exceptionally malty and fairly sweet, with intense aromas of caramel, toffee, brown sugar, buttered toast, chocolate, coffee, and prunes. On the palate, the flavors lean almost entirely toward sweet, rich maltiness. Melanoidins arenít associated with Baltic porters the way they are with the malty German beers, but this beer sure is reminiscent of that intense quality of maltiness, except that itís a bit sweeter (but not sugary). Flavors include dried, dark fruits (raisins and prunes), dark toast, coffee, chocolate, caramel, nuts, toffee, maple syrup, and finishing with a note of smoky, dark-roasted malt. And because of the aging this beer has seen, itís picked up a very pleasant and balancing earthiness. Carbonation is light-medium, and though the malty sweetness might very well be cloying to some people, there is enough dryness from the roasted malt and some slight acidity from the earthiness to keep the beer from becoming too sweet. Overall, itís simply delicious, a beer that makes me proud to be part Polish.

Love this f***ing beer. One of my favorites. -Pours a dark black, rose and burgundy in the light, tan to white creamy head dissipates quickly and leaves a bit of lacing. Aromas of raisin, date, paperclips, farmhouse, light chocolate. Licorice, grain, peanut, pistachio shell, metal, vine, and sexy sex on the tongue. Slightly watery mouthfeel, medium body, tingly in the cheeks, bold but subtle palette. Finish is half dry half wet, long remnant of nut and earthy grain, little beef. Rather warming, a solid porter. This is what I want when I want a porter.

Dark pour, clear with no head. Aroma of chocolate with a touch of chicory. Light flavor, a touch of bitter the end.

February 2, 2012 bottle from BVery. Dark reddish brown pour with huge head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate and sweet dark fruit. Taste is similar but a little too sweet for me and a tad thin.

BVery (6842) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - FEB 2, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Very deep mahogany pour with a monster foamy tan head. Aroma and taste of chocolate, dark fruits, licorice - pretty sweet tasting. Medium slightly oily palate.
