Pours pitch black almost no foam. No nose! In mouth good chocolate and coffee, a touch (tiny) of licorice and dried black plums. Great beer, well balanced, easy drinking, very mild sweetness.

Intensive aroma with melanoidines, smoked plum, coffee, cocoa cake, great baltic porter notes. Mouthfeel is thick, full and sweet but this sweetness increases the experience of beer being full bodied. An extremely enjoyable beer with no hints of alcohol, complex and very well drinkable. One of best porters I have ever drunk

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Taps rich coffee sable with a fair tan head. Aroma delivers roast malt, coffee, and barleywine-like fruity tones. Flavor presents roast malt, coffee, woody, fruity, and subtle semi-sweet chocolate notes. Body is firm, fizz is OK. Get a lil’ B in your tummy.

Pours deep sable with a thick and persistent tan head. Aroma is not strong, but presents promising toasty malt, fruity and woody notes. Flavor delivers more than what the aroma promises - molasses, roast malt, slightly charred hops, hints of pear and licorice. And a sneaky alcohol bite. Mouthfeel features firm, viscous body and good fizz. No lil’ beer, a worthy one.

Aromat fajnie wylezakowanego porteru bałtyckiego, ciemne owoce czekolada, lekko kwaskowa i palona kawa, cukierki truflowe
W smaku gładkie i słodkie, czekoladowe, posmak ciemnych owoców, wyraźnej kwaśnej/palony kawy i czekolady, bardzo cukierkowy charakter
Podsumowując przypomina mi w charakterze ciechana porter, ktory tak z rok poczekał na degustacje, raczej nie czuć alko jak na 11,5%
