FatPhil (8636) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 10, 2013
500ml bottle (Małe Piwo, Warsaw) - Shared with SRPOL - thanks!
Raisins and rich dark roast. Plums, but alas a touch of alcohol. Super rich taste - just a touch yeasty, but such an enormous full roast. Full smooth palate, a touch sweet, but not sticky. An excellent baltic porter.

Moscicki (129) - Tarnow, POLAND - DEC 1, 2013
What a great porter. Very strong, very intensive for very advanced drinkers. Deep dark color with beautiful dense brown head. Soft carbonation. Medium/sweet body, sweet in taste. Aroma is dark fruits, chocolate, coffee, reminds me a chocolate with chilli a little bit. It warms you up but the alcohol is very well masked by multilayer, complex taste. The finish is sour but pleasant. Overal experience is - I am proud this is brewed in Poland. I’m going to buy at least few of these for aging.

Borresteijn (4410) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2014
50cl Bottle brought from Poland, thanks Coen! Almost black colour, creamy beige head. Aroma is quite sweet, very malty, pumpernickel, figs, raisins, brown sugar, burnt caramel, tiny hint of coffee. Flavour is sweet, fruity, figs, raisins, caramel, coffee, alcohol, bittersweet finish. Medium-bodied. Great example of a Baltic Porter, albeit rather sweet.

estpiwo (1222) - ESTONIA - JUL 8, 2011
Bottle. Strong smoky caramel aroma. Black color. Strong caramel tones in taste, espresso without sugar, spices, over-roasted bread maybe. Interesting, impressive.

bierkoning (9836) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JAN 20, 2012
Bottle from EdDesmadre, thanks! Almost black. Roast, coffee and salt in the aroma. Licorice. Seems full bodied at first, but is somewhat thinner and alcoholic. Nice velvety mouthfeel. Raisin, coffee, ash, caramel. Delicious and not without complexity.

lusikka (5376) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 2, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2013 500 ml @ Gastropub Nordic, Tampere. Pours a black colour with a beigeish head. Aroma of strong dark chocolate, tobacco and nuts. Flavour of roasted malts, sweet honey, bread, salty licorice, ash and some burnt notes. Medium bodied, oily mouthfeel and low carbonation. Finishes roasty and quite bitter. Burnt notes are rather aggressive here. Good. 7-4-7-3-14 3.5

500 ml bottle @ HeBF.
Strong aroma, strong aroma. Meaty flavour strong toasty maltiness. Licorice as well. Better than last time. 8-3-8-4-15

MiP (13055) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle, 9.0%. Creamy aroma. Very dark brown colour, seems clear. Small stable brown head. The flavour has some liquorice, it is salty and sweet. Good roasted finish - and still creamy.

Bamsen78 (2425) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle. Pours hazy dark brown with tan head. Clear aroma of malt and caramel. Ditto taste. An ok porter, though perhaps a little too boozy. But that is understandable, considering the ABV.
