Best bang for the buck. Tasty, tasty dark beer. Very affordable for a college student and delivers a powerful punch. It is a must-taste beer.

A fantastic beer and one worth coming back for. Nice aroma with a full, smooth flavor (just a slight chocolate) and the perfect acidity.

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!

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2007 Hard to do better than the flavor on this one. Excellent balance between the sweet aspects and the lingering smokey bitterness. Not big or overwhelming in the flavor profile, but this is one example where that ís not necessary to be excellent. Aroma is light, misty and sea-breezy in feel, in a category beyond chocolate and into fudge. Rich, creamy and smooth. Fits right in with what I love about this sub-style.

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

I didnít realize this came in three different versions, 7%, 8%, and 9%. I had the 9% bottle, pure good luck.

Wow. caramel, sweet malt, chocolate, molasses- The high alcohol is completely masked by the sweet satisfying flavor. This is a great drinking porter! Donít let the price fool you! This is inexpensive excellence. And, a FULL PINT of easy drinking 9.4 ABV for a little over a buck and a half is really a "no-brainer".

Deep, dark chestnut color (bordering on black) with ruby highlights, and a medium begie head. The aroma burst out with tons of licorice (I likes, I likes), sugar, molasses, cinnamon, and a fruity character (plums mainly.) The flavor was very sweet with molasses, licorice, coffee, milk chocolate, tart fruits, and a gentle earthiness. The feel was rather syrupy (nice!) and coating...wet finish. Wonderful porter! Why isnít this a 100 percentile beer?

One of the best beers Iíve ever had, thus far. Smooth, rich chocolate aroma. Flavor was more sweet goodness. My friend commented that "it tastes like someone poured caramel corn all over beer!". The facet of this porter that separated from other porters that Iíve had was the 9.4%. With such a finely made beer, the alcohol was wonderfully hidden. Wowie zowie is the best way to express my love of this beer.
