Damn near perfect bp. Top stuff, meaty feintly autolysis aroma, but smooth right up there dark flavour. Walloping finish.

Bottle, many thanks to the kindness of the great Eldesmadre. It’s an honour to try this beer, not only because I particularly love Baltic Porters, but also for its name. It’s not always that you can get a traditional beer formally named after a shag. So, this has a nice, dark, coca cola appearance, very dark, with a nice light beige head, rather bubbly to start with. The aromas are a mix of dark chocolate, caramels and plums. Very enticing to the nose. Drinking this beer was nice and warming, with flavours full of dark chocolates, dulce de leche, cherry liquor, plums and all sorts of forest fruits. Talking about all sorts, some interesting liquorice presence too. I can get molasses and plenty of booze. In spite of that noticeable alcohol, it is easy and terribly pleasant to drink. There’s a mild bitterness, from a herbal source, perhaps from that boozy, spicy Schnapps-type of flavour. Medium bodied, with less carbonation than initially suggested by the appearance. Delightful stuff.

Chyba najlepszy polski porter bałtycki. Solidna piana. Genialny kawowo-czekoladowy smak

Pours clear, black, with nice brown head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, bit of dark fruits and roasted malts. Alcohol well hidden, full body, medium carbonation. Great, long coffee taste with nice roasty bitterness. Wonderful porter, one of the best

(PL) Piana słaba, średnio-pęcherzykowa. Aromaty bardzo słabe, lekko karmelowe takie słodkawe. W smaku karmelowe lekko palone. Goryczka wysoka. Wysycenie dosyć wysokie. Jak na Portera przejrzyste. Przyjemny porter. Ciekawe co wyjdzie z niego po leżakowaniu.

Very dark brown with beige, long-lasting, awesome head. Chocolate, light coffee, bread crust, plum, dark fruits. A bit of caramel, dark bread and hazelnut. Some roastiness in flavor. High body. Medium bitterness. Low to medium alcohol warming. Smooth on palate. Great, very rich and interesting baltic porter.

Pięknie wygląda, ładna piana. Smak - po prostu nie mój, chyba nie lubię porterów.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
50cl bottle. Dark brown with small tanned head.
NOSE : chocolate cake, roasted bread, toffee, coffee with milk, nuts, mountain honey.
SIP : thick and oily with delicate carbonation. It’s a sweet beer but further on the flavors of roasted malts and hops put the beer into the right balance. Meantime I notice flavors of dried raisins, plums and some pear. The ending is booze, toffee, mud and some resin.
OVERALL : It’s a tasty beer but still a bit too sweet for me. It does the justice for this style and I will surely enjoy this beer some other time.

Bottle 500ml. Color is black, rocky tan head. Aroma: butterscotch, toffee, hops.Taste: sweet-bitter-sour, roasted malts, charcoal, grass, chocolate, plum. Chili warm finish. It is an interesting beer and shows a lot of potential but I find it too unbalanced and too sour. It needs some work.
