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.

500ml bottle for $3. A hidden little gem in the import section at my local beer store. Pours black with a slight amber hue to it. Head is sort of a creamy off white or khaki color. Smells like chocolate, malt and is slightly fruity. The alcohol can be detected a little bit in the aroma as well. Taste is sweet with some chocolate, fruit and alcohol flavors present. At 9.4% that can be expected. Does not mask the alcohol perfectly but it is hardly offensive. The body is a little thinner than I prefer but not light. Overall this is a really good porter that I recommend.

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.

Angelmonster (167) - Colorado, USA - DEC 6, 2010
Pours a big finger of beige head. Body is a very dark brown with red highlights. Head retention was decent and lacing was minimal. Predominate smell is of dark fruits. Plums, figs, raisins and prunes. Caramel and roasted malts are also present. There is also a lingering hint of smokiness similar to a scotch ale at the end. Hops are not present at all and alcohol is very faint. Taste is pretty sweet, almost syrupy. Caramel, dulce de leche, smoky burnt malts are the first flavors that come through. Dried fruits like fig, prune, and plum are there as foretold in the smell. Some earthy hops are very faint in the background and for 9 percent abv, alcohol is well hidden. Palate is medium bodied, slightly syrupy. Carbonation levels are good but head doesnt contribute much to the feel. For such a strong dark ale it wasnt as heavy as some baltic porters, which has its pros and cons. Overall a good beer. Drinkability was very good, especially for such a strong beer. Not too heavy or filling, this beer can potentially become dangerous. Good flavors and reasonably priced, would definitely buy this one again

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.

Pours a deep brown, very small fizzy head which quickly dissipates. Sweet, lightly roasted, malty and alcoholic aroma, very pleasing. Coffee and fruit, ending with chocolate sweetness; very little bitterness. Starts out nice on the palate but the body quickly thins out. Very drinkable..
