alteregoo (182) - POLAND - APR 8, 2015
Po przelaniu do szkła tworzy się średnio obfita kremowa piana, niezbyt trwała, ale ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Barwa ciemno brązowa, prawie czarna, z rubinowymi refleksami. Aromat wiśniowo-czekoladowy, mało intensywny, czuć też niedofermentowane czerwone wino domowe. W smaku półsłodkie, mamy tu zarówno gorzką jak i mleczną czekoladę, kawę naturalną, nuty rumowe, rodzynkowe, palone, w miarę ogrzewania się dochodzi lekka wiśniowa kwaśność. Goryczka pestkowo-alkoholowa, niska, aczkolwiek nieprzyjemnie zalegająca. Nasycenie średnie do niskiego, odczucie półpełne, wyraźnie niższe niż przy polskich porterach 21-22° Plato. Jest tu również cierpkość i posmak zepsutych czerwonych owoców, zbutwiałego drewna, który wychodzi coraz mocniej wraz ze wzrostem temperatury trunku. Jednym słowem rozczarowanie. Po pierwszym łyku wydawało się, że może to być dobre piwo, jednak w miarę picia okazało się, że ma wiele wad. Posmak zgniłych śliwek i zbutwiałego drewna to mało szlachetna cecha, nawet jak na Porter Bałtycki!

karpik (59) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - MAR 27, 2015
Aroma was slight sour with chocolate. Very weird. Dark brown colour with nice white head. Taste corresponds with aroma. It was more a dry stout than baltic porter. I think beer began to deteriorate, which it’s strange in this style. Drunk before the expiry date.

Werckmeister (500) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - MAR 26, 2015
bottle at home from trade with Jamedra, thanks Roman :) almost black color, medium big tan head. smells light smoky, milky, some chocolate. the combination of smoky bacon notes and milky chocolate gives a quite nice overall smell. full body, slick mouthfeel, soft carbonation, chocolate, some subtle malty sweetness, soft smoky / bacon notes, milky / oily, light but well hidden alcoholic, quite dry / soft smoky / light roasty finish. drinks quite good.

Holmen1 (3196) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2015
Flaske nr. 13 denne rbhd-kvelden feb-15, og endelig en med skikkelig feit og god aroma, kaffe og melkesjokolade. Smaken skuffer ikke, og med fint balansert humlebruk er dette en třrr.lett syrlig og meget god porter jeg gjerne drikker mer av.

JefVerstraete (1883) - Ghent, BELGIUM - JAN 5, 2015
Bottle from a trade. Thanks mmahut! Dark brown/black colour, beautiful dark brown foam. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and balsamic vinegar. Bitter roasted taste with a lot of vinegar. Very sour. This beer was clearly infected. A pity!

Gurthnar (2607) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 25, 2014
Tap at Sklep. Aroma dusty, ashy, roasty. Light fruits. Also unpleasant egg. Clear deep brown colour. Luxurious head. Taste goes in the established direction. There is some off element, I get rotten eggs, which somewhat puts me off. Rather bitter, roasted. Sweetness with hints of fruit only at the beginning.
