COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
KOMES PORTER reflects the history of brewing, referring to the 18th century tradition of brewing porters in the Baltic states. At their prime, Baltic porters represented one third of the market, which is the best evidence of their popularity. We offer you a well-balanced, dark, strong beer with a distinct flavour. Slow fermentation at low temperatures in open vats, coupled with long (at least 3 months) maturation have resulted in the beer’s character and complete, complex nature. The Porter’s bouquet matures further in the bottle. Time is on its side.

Kawowy, dobrze kryjący alkochol, przyjemny, warty swojej sławy. Doskonały na każdą okazję, polecam.

Bottled, with date 2 VI 2016. Highly roasted aroma: rye bread, smoke. Also some plums, liquor, alcohol in scent only when "deeply inhaling". Clear when poured to glass, very dark brown in color, with some ruby reflexes to the light. "Sounds" highly fizzy when poured, tanned head disappears almost instantly. Medium-to-low carbonation (might be a little lower maybe), taste starts a little sour (like pumpernickel) with some fizziness and ends with dark chocolate bitterness, that lasts for quite some time - leaving chocolate taste on the tongue and bitterness "on the cheeks". Alcohol only warms the throat on the finish (and for short time), but not in the taste itself. Not very full body, but still not super-drinkable - chocolate aftertaste is lasting. That might be good, because you can get easily drunk ;) It’s still 9% ABV, even if alcohol is well hidden in the taste - this is tricky, but well done. Very good baltic porter, probably a must-try in Poland. Second bottle waiting in the cellar :)

Mocno wyczuwalny alkohol, poza tym ciekawe nuty kawowe, zarówno w aromacie, jak i w smaku. Mogłoby być znacznie lepiej ułożone.

Kita (1276) - Koper, SLOVENIA - FEB 15, 2015
Bottle, 0.50l, courtesy of ElDesmadre. Cloudy almost black color with medium creamy light brown head and no fair lacing. Aroma of heavy roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, nuts and grassy hops. Taste starts with sweet and rich roasted malt, follows by coffee, chocolate and liquorice, while mouthfeel is warming alcoholic and spicy with mild bitter finish. Full body, creamy texture and average carbonation in palate. Wow, this one is hell of a rich winter warmer...

WelshPL (23) - Poznań, POLAND - FEB 13, 2015
Świetny aromat, mocno kawowy, czuć czekoladę i paloność, w smaku suszone owoce, świetnie ukryty alkohol. Może lekko zbyt palony i kwaśny aromat, idący w kierunku RISa,ale mi to nie przeszkadza. Pite świeże jest pyszne, do tego genialnie się starzeje. Zasłużone wszystkie nagrody i pochwały. Moim zdaniem najlepszy Porter Bałtycki w Polsce-nie licząc wariacji na jego temat.
