Amazing beer. Sweetness is balanced by hoppy bitterness. Coffee and - in lower grade - chocolate aroma and taste as well. Full body. Great.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice, 2 finger head. Almost black, clear (under strong light) body.
Aroma of chocolate and some roastiness.
In taste there is some sweetness with medium bitterness.
Strong chocolate flavout, with warming alcohol.
Beer has creamy texture, soft carbonation making it perfect for long, winter evening. Short warming finish makes it even better.
Very good baltic porter, one of the best.

As most of Polish Baltic Porters, it is really nice. Pours black, with nice head. Aroma is plums, chocolate, coffee, raisins. Medium full body, low carbonation. Medium bitterness, some delicate sourness from roasted malts, nice coffee and chocolate, well hidden alcohol. I like it

Bottle. Pours clear dark chestnut with a small, creamy beige head. Aroma has liqourice, roasted, dark chocolate, nuts. Low carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has good liqourice, soft salty, good dark chocolate, metallic, a bit of smoke, soft elegance. Quite delicious.

(PL) Piana bardzo niska, średnio-pęcherzykowa. Aromat kawowy, lekko palony. W smaku znacznie bardziej wyczuwa się paloność. Goryczka średnia. Średnio pijalne. Mogłoby być bardziej wytrawne (mniej pijalne). Po kupnie trzeba trochę z nim poczekać (leżakować), żeby nabrał porządnego porterowego smaku.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: black, with very thin, tan head, that drops quickly. Poor lacing.
Aroma: very nice, coffee and roasted malts, some caramel in the back. Not intense, but very pleasant.
Taste: roastiness, coffee and malts. Rather dry. Bitterness on an average level. No alcohol aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: full bodied, medium to soft carbonation.
Overall: one of my favourite baltic porters. I like how it’s dominated by roastiness instead of sweetness. It’s not an "in your face" type of beer, rather one to sit with in the evening and drink one bottle for like an hour. Room temperature is this beer best friend.
Enjoyed from a snifter.

Fantastic baltic porter from Komes / Fortuna Brewery. Toasted coffee, dark chocolate. Very drinkable. A bit on a sweet side, but it does not bother. For me the most drinkable example of the style. Awarded best baltic porter in Europe!
