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.

goleiro (138) - Lublin, POLAND - SEP 15, 2014
Piana średnia, szybko opada. Kolor ciemny, prawie czarny, klarowny, bez zmętnień, pod światło ciemno rubinowy. Aromat kawowy, palony. Lekko alkoholowy. Zero żelazistości. Średnie wysycenie, spora paloność i kawowość, lekka rześkość od gazu. Dosyć wytrawny. Praktycznie nie czuć słodyczy, chyba że jest delikatnie ukryta. Rozgrzewający. Delikatnie wiśniowy.

Rewo (28) - Katowice, POLAND - SEP 12, 2014
Almost black body, but head is only on the edges. Aroma of chocolate and coffee, followed by some roast, raisins and a hint of vanilla. Dark chocolate and caramel sweetness, some dark malts burnt bitterness. Soft carbonation, full creamy body, alcohol warms up the throat at the start, but otherwise it’s unnoticable. Really great porter.
