3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Clear dark amber to brown with light reddish hues and a big bubbly beige head. Aroma of mild roastiness, coffee, licorice, dark bread, smoky hints and light fruity notes. Sweet flavor, malty, caramelly, mildly roasty, with dark bread, chocolate, coffee, licorice, light fruitiness and a slightly drier, more roasty, and slightly alcoholic finish with a light smoky hint. Medium to full-bodied, kinda syrupy and sticky. Not bad, but too sweet and sugary for my liking.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled: Dark ruby red coloured. Thin chocolatish head. Malts, fruit and chocolate in the nose. Coffee, fruits and a very dominant sweetness in the flavour. Very light roasted. Alcahol is well hidden. As a Baltic Porter this is way too sweet for me. Totally lacs the sharp roasted malt flavour, that I seek in these beers.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Poured a dark brown with a red tint to it and a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of roast, chocolate, lactose and a strong nuttiness to it. I’ll have to take Eric’s word for it about his Grandmother’s Nuts (maybe it was his Grandpa). Tastes of roast, light cocoa, and a lighter nuttiness to it. Thinner body.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a super cheap Polish Baltic Porter, but it is actually pretty good. It is sweet with hints of cocoa and dark fruits.
