stoigniew (18) - Łęczna, POLAND - MAY 17, 2014
Zapach w tym piwie przypomina śliwkę nałęczowską lub cukierkowe trufle w czekoladzie, alkohol wyczuwalny. W smaku średnia goryczka, czuć nuty palone. Piwo nie jest wytrawne, czuć słodycz z akcentów bombonierkowych - po dłuższym czasie jest ona lekko zamulająca. Przy każdym łyku zaznaczona delikatna kwaskowosć. Bardzo dobre piwo.

Akatyzja (55) - POLAND - MAR 18, 2014
Kolor prawie czarny z ciemno rubinowymi połyskami, Piana beżowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, ładnie znaczy szkło, ale szybko opada. W aromacie dużo paloności, kawy i karmelu. W smaku jak na portera przystało dominuje kawa, potem śliwka w czekoladzie i karmel. Rozgrzewające, choć alkohol dobrze ukryty. Wysycenie średnie. Bardzo dobrze zrobiony porter, choć dzieje się trochę mniej niż w Łódzkim.

agent_persik (358) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 1, 2014
Dark red almost black color, medium creamy beige head. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, dried fruits, cocoa, coffee, wood. Taste has similar notes - sweet with light roasty bitterness and chocolate aftertaste. Medium body and average carbonation, warming alcohol touch. Very nice porter, sweet and strong, just as I like.

Beautiful coffee and roast aroma. Speaking about the dye I think it’s too bright, too transparent. But has amazing lacing. Taste is just like aroma, but much stronger, just awesome. You can feel a little bit of alcohol, but it’s not disturbing at all. Overall it’s just great great beer!

W zapachu dominuje kawa. Piana ładna, kremowa, oblepia szklankę do końca. Smak bardzo zbalansowany, świetne połączenie kawowości i słodkości, lekko wyczuwalna wanilia. Wspaniała, gęsta, kremowa konsystencja. Alkohol w smaku nie wyczuwalny, rozgrzewa dopiero w przełyku, bardzo zresztą przyjemnie. Choć to porter zupełnie inny od żywieckiego, to na podobnym, bardzo wysokim poziomie.

GraveAtSea (138) - Lublin, POLAND - OCT 7, 2013
Bottle 0,5l Expire date: 03.05.2014 Dark brown, dark ruby color. Huge creamy, pale brown foam. Aroma: roasted malts, raisins, dried fruits (plums), caramel, cherry liqueur, some porto wine. Love this smell. Taste: balance between sweet and bitter. Roasted malts, cherry, dark chocolate, raisins, dried fruits, coffee and chocolate liqueur. Long warming finish. Full body with a thick texture. For me one of the greatest Polish Baltic Porter.

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.
