Pours dark, dark brown. Aroma was syrupy and a bit of chocolate. I like the flavor, even though I’ve only had this type a few times now. Medium carbonation, oily, full mouthfeel. The 9.4% is hidden well. At 2.75 for a 16.9 oz. bottle, it is a great value. In fact, in terms of $ per alcohol-oz., this is the top beer I have found.

mesperon (205) - Hillsdale, New Jersey, USA - FEB 12, 2009
Almost opaque black, copper hues on edges, with thick tan head. Sweet on the nose with roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Thick chewy mouthfeel. Sweet and light at first, then roasted malt hits with a coffe bitterness that is obvious but very mellow and understated. A little sharpness of coffee leaves a nice aftertaste on the whole of the tongue. 9.4% is very well hidden. What a great porter.

Feinschmecker (202) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 15, 2007
Bottle. Dark brown color with a sweet molasses malty aroma. Flavor is one dimensional and too sweet. It seems the sweetness is there to make up for the lack of complexity. I do have to admit that the alcohol is not noticeable. I am not to into this style.

vulcanmeister (193) - La Grande, Oregon, USA - MAY 27, 2009
From 500ml bottle, pours dark brown with quickly receeding tan head. The aroma is brown sugar, hazelnuts, and carmel. The flavor didn’t come through as strongly as I expected, with again brown sugar, some nuttiness, and a bit of bitterness. The alcohol kind of crept up on me unawares. Nice long finish echoing chocolate, dried fruit, and light biterness.

muteprint (176) - Olympia, Washington, USA - OCT 1, 2010
Dark beer with a thick and creamy head. Vanilla aroma. Odd taste and very creamy mouth feel. Can’t quite put my finger on this one but it isn’t brilliant.

Pretty good porter, smokey and a little chocolatey, heavy booze doesn’t really show up when you drink it, not bad

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

Classic Polish Porter, awesome! Zywiec is the best but the Black Boss is nice too and very smooth / melow flavoring.

dkingsella (152) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 8, 2009
Pours dark black with little to no head. Aromas of bitter dark chocolate and cherries. Flavor was sweet with more chocolate, coffee and nice roasty notes. Overall a pretty good beer. Would pick it up again.
