Deep dark brown coloured body with ruby highlights and a deep dense tan head - perfect for the style! Aroma of a good baltic - meaty, mushroomy, caramel, roasted malt, coffee and a touch of chocolate show very well. Medium-bodied; Strong roasted malt flavours with a good backbone of chocolate and the strong savoury flavours come out as well - with some subtle alcohol near the end. Aftertaste shows some complexity with a tiny bit of spice, caramel and mostly mild tastes. Overall, a damn good baltic, rivaling even Zywiec, also from Poland. When I first saw this one, I wanted to try it, and I’m definitely glad I did! Perhaps this aged nicely in the bottle, but I really liked this and would recommend it to anyone! I sampled this 500 mL bottle purchased about two years ago from Whole Foods in Portland (Downtown), Oregon, drunk on 05-August-2008.

It pours jet black intimidation, goes down like molasses, hit’s you with a wicked 9.4 percent, then demands you thank it. Thank you Black Boss, may I have another?

Love this f***ing beer. One of my favorites. -Pours a dark black, rose and burgundy in the light, tan to white creamy head dissipates quickly and leaves a bit of lacing. Aromas of raisin, date, paperclips, farmhouse, light chocolate. Licorice, grain, peanut, pistachio shell, metal, vine, and sexy sex on the tongue. Slightly watery mouthfeel, medium body, tingly in the cheeks, bold but subtle palette. Finish is half dry half wet, long remnant of nut and earthy grain, little beef. Rather warming, a solid porter. This is what I want when I want a porter.

Head dissipated quickly with a dark black color. Carbonation is perfect for a porter. Just enough to add to the mild smooth taste. Has a very fine sweetness in the middle. Can taste a molasses in the middle. Very little if any IBUs detected. Almost a cola taste at the finish. Not sure if this can age well but going to try!!

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 24, 2004
Dark brown, near black with a tannish head and spotty lacing. I love baltic porters. The caramel comes out oh so sweetly. Raisins and anise. Caramel is out moreso than in the aroma. Roasty. The licorice comes through, but is not overbearing. Bitter hops. Raisins again. Thick and complex. Very nice finish of caramel and licorice. Nice. Thanks goes to the Bückster for toting this back from Seattle.

Reddish brown appearance, rich fruity port aroma. Sweet fruity, creamy flavor, strong port comparisons without the showing the alcohol. Smooth and creamy. Sweet finish.
