Akatyzja (73) - 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 Łůdzkim.

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 itís 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 itís not disturbing at all. Overall itís just great great beer!

Pelzky (87) - Szczecin, POLAND - OCT 11, 2014
Very dark brown color & clear with small, beige head (which is only flaw about this beer when it comes to its appearance) and poor lacing. Very rich and complex aroma. There are chocolate, malts, loads of dried plums & raisins, some woody and smoked notes and a pleasant hint of alcohol. Taste has mostly the same notes also itís very well balanced. Carbonation is just perfect. Mouthfeel is really velvety. Despite high abv and complex aroma and taste itís quite drinkable. Great baltic porter.

Na pierwszym miejscu kawa w aromacie i smaku půźniej przebija się czekolada wszystko jest tak zbalansowane i ukryty alkohol(niewyczuwalny ale grzeje przełyk) że jest bardzo dobrze pijane nie zatyka wysycenie w sam raz, piana drobno pęcherzykowa beżowa, zastanawia mnie tylko fakt że tak szybko opadła do zera, termin upływa 25.10.2015.

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 (139) - 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. Itís an honour to try this beer, not only because I particularly love Baltic Porters, but also for its name. Itís 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. Thereís 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.
