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.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2016 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! /edit/ Butelka do 25.09.2015. 5 miesięcy po terminie. W aromacie zdecydowanie pojawiają się nuty wiśniowe i śliwkowe. Do tego tło czekoladowe i kawowe. Świetny aromat. W smaku nadal sporo słodyczy, która szybko gaśnie. Prócz nut palonych, dość delikatnych, pojawia się wiśnia, śliwka. Piwo wyraźnie się utleniło, stało się nieco bogatsze. Nie zwala jednak z nóg, nadal jest ’tylko’ rewelacyjnym porterem.

Aged bottle for a year. Aroma of chocolate and plum in an alcohol. Dark brown colour with tan head. Taste is medium sweet with plums, cherries, chocolate, liqueur with nice low to medium herbal bitterness at the finish. Overall very good Baltic Porter, worth aging.

Aromat czekoladowy, palony, kawowy, śliwka w czekoladzie. W smaku kawowe, czekoladowe, śliwka, lekko palony. Długi posmak, alkohol niewyczuwalny, bardzo dobrze się ukrył. Warka lekko po terminie (10.05.2011).

Stoutbjorn (1) - POLAND - DEC 11, 2015 does not count
Very Sweet malty aroma. Strong flavour ot roast malt making this beer a little sour and bitter at the beginning with very sweet finish. Alcohol notes not very prominent for a beer with 9% ABV. Head very thick and brown. Colour nearly jet black. Still has some brownish golden accent in it. I enjoyed this beer very much. On of the best baltic porters i drank.

Pours pitch black with minimal lacing. Aroma is coffee notes, espresso, chocolate and roasted malt. The initial taste reveals some espresso, chocolate with some bitterness. A nice balanced beer that’s easy to drink despite the abv, which is well hidden. I wouldn’t turn another one down.

Erzengel (7296) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 9, 2016
Many thanks to Werckmeister for this bottle! Intense roasted beginning with lots of burned caramel. Intense and sticky but still easy to drink. The Alcohol is not too intense, malt, burned caramel and a moderate sweetness. Low level of hops, viscous black liquid. Long and caramelly intense aftertaste with lots of burned malt. Great stuff!

Suchar (59) - Opole, POLAND - JAN 23, 2016
Piwo ciekawe, zapach świetny, czuć czekoladę, likier kawowy, mocny banan, niezwykle wkomponowana paloność słodów. Piana gęsta, dość drobna, opada, ale bardzo ładnie zdobi szkło. Smak adekwatny do zapachu, czuć mocno kawę, praliny, banan, trochę wanilię i aromaty korzenne. Alkohol dobrze wkomponowany, nie jest zbyt mocno wyczuwalny, ale bardzo przyjemnie rozgrzewa. Świetne piwo na zimowe wieczory, dla amatorów potrera dobre na codzień, polecam!

Toffee caramel, chocolate. Thick body. Rich hop aroma with sweet sharp malts. Smooth body body, very nice. Much better than expected. Can stand up against the American giants! (ZeeBra)
