Pours a dark black sludge. Aroma of molasses and alcohol. Heavy roasted malts of chocolate, coffee, bourbon, oak with slightly over the top sweetness.

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!

This has a very distinct smell, like licorice or something else I canít quite name. The taste is interesting, I get the malt flavor as well as a sour note like black licorice, as well as other flavors I canít quite pinpoint. It does seem a bit thick on the palate, but enjoyable when sipped.

Excellent! Very malty. Dark. Great after taste. Caramelly hints with coffee. Terrific after taste.

Pours dark toffee-brown with a thick, fine-textured head. Sweet aromas have a definitely fruity slant that separates this from the majority of porters. In the mouth, this is sweetly chocolatey upfront, then it thins and dries out in the midpalate and finish. The net effect is a reduction in the impressiveness/impact of the beer but also an increase in the drinkability.

Nothing astonishing here. At %9.4 it gets the job done and is affordable, but, despite being fairly rich, doesnt have much character.

Hussey (60) - North Carolina, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Bottle @ Bestway. Pour: Rich brown, tawny appearance. Opaque beauty with thin collar of foam. Aroma: Leathery, cocoa, almost a cigar/tobacco-like aroma. Notes of dark fruit also. Taste: A big porter! Immediate warming from the alcohol. Roasted malt forward brew with a hint of molasses and coffee flavors. Definitely a sipper. A muscular brew. Aggressive mouthfeel. Overall: A freak of a porter, IMHO. Very enjoyable but volatile and potent. After tasting, rating, and finishing this particular bottle, my wife noted that i "smelled like a campfire". Once you imbibe this baltic porter, it literally seeps out of your pores.

Nice beer--- pours black with light showing through. Little head showing up. Tastes of chalk butter and Carmel with a strong bite. Smell is light and not that strong.

An excellent example of a true porter. Plenty of toasty malt flavor and aroma. Dark red in color. No head. Round palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
