Bottled Ė GBBF. A blackish beer with a red hue. The aroma is wonderful with lots of licquorice and caramel as well as alcohol and soy sauce. The taste is full and has all the characteristics of the aroma beautifully balanced. Very very drinkable and tasty. Truly delicious and my beer of the Festival.

Pours out very dark brown, almost black. Off-white colored head that leaves small amounts of spotty lacing. In the smell I get molasses, sweet caramel, toffee, a bit of nuttiness, licorice, and just a small amount of roastiness. Taste has much of the same elements as the nose, but has a very nice creamy, yet at the same time soft, roasty finish. Soft carbonation, about medium levels with a luscious full body to back it up. This is 9.4%? I didnít get an alcohol burn or unpleasant alcohol in any way; this is just a very well made porter that I intend on getting much more of.

8/9/07 From the bottle. Aroma is of dark plum, more like a port than a porter, then as the beer opens up goes to raisin, then fades into a bready roasty tone. Appearance is dark hazy brown with a medium tan head. Flavor is fruity sweet malt forward with caramel, smooth roast toffee, nutty, dark dried currant and no hop character. Mouthfeel is medium/full bodied with a powdered grainy feel throughout the mouth; warm. Overall, very cool and complex, like a strong aged winter warmer; possibly the best porter Iíve had this year.

Butters (4045) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 27, 2011
Wow. This was quite the surprise! The beautiful near black pour with dense khaki head and chestnut highlights put me in the right mood as soon as the liquid hit the glass. Unfortunately, the head is shortlived and dissipates rather quickly. And then the aroma. Simply heavenly. Sweet vanilla and caramel and roast and very reminiscent of creme brulee from Southern Tier (but not quite THAT good). And after all that, the flavor still

Whoa! Nice and dark. Smoky taste. Very palatable for a 9.5% beer. A top-five lifetime beer for Mac; not quite there for me, but very good.

Iím not sure how old this bottle is, but itís at least 2 years old and drinking wonderfully. This classic Baltic porter is rich, full-bodied, and very flavorful. Itís not exactly black in color, but rather pours a dark-brown body with ruby highlights. Itís initially capped by a thin blanket of dark-tan head, but it recedes to a thin ring fairly quickly. The nose is exceptionally malty and fairly sweet, with intense aromas of caramel, toffee, brown sugar, buttered toast, chocolate, coffee, and prunes. On the palate, the flavors lean almost entirely toward sweet, rich maltiness. Melanoidins arenít associated with Baltic porters the way they are with the malty German beers, but this beer sure is reminiscent of that intense quality of maltiness, except that itís a bit sweeter (but not sugary). Flavors include dried, dark fruits (raisins and prunes), dark toast, coffee, chocolate, caramel, nuts, toffee, maple syrup, and finishing with a note of smoky, dark-roasted malt. And because of the aging this beer has seen, itís picked up a very pleasant and balancing earthiness. Carbonation is light-medium, and though the malty sweetness might very well be cloying to some people, there is enough dryness from the roasted malt and some slight acidity from the earthiness to keep the beer from becoming too sweet. Overall, itís simply delicious, a beer that makes me proud to be part Polish.

A porter that will put hair on your chest. Slightly but not very boozy. Strong porter notes. Thinner than a stout; well labeled.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2005 Bottled. Dark brown. Attractive, intensive aroma of syrup, licorice, dried fruits and a hint of coffee. Powerful flavor - syrup, coffee and sweetish with not so much alcohol feel, and a hint of fruitiness. Notes of diacetyl as well in flavour, but I can take it.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 9, 2005
Raisins, walnut, chocolate and some dried cherries in the aroma. Reddish brown/black with a frothy, but thin head. Huge raisin blast in the fore followed by another huge blast of black licorice and then mild marzipan notes in the middle. Finish wafts on through with dry black licorice notes and a chalky raisin/licorice/burnt aftertaste. This is very nice.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2007 Bottle- strong sweet nose. Strong sweet malty flavor. Develops increased character as temperature increases. Itís over the top sweetness...yeah...pretty much... Food pairing:Outstanding with bar-b-que. )
