COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Even in 1895, Porter was brewed from the mountain spring in Löbau, and it was a beloved drink in the Lausitz. With our Lausitzer Porter, we successfully continue this brewing tradition. Across the land, the legendarily sweet taste of this unique dark beer has found friends among connoisseurs of dark brews.

The owner of a local store suggested me to try this. He only orders one beer crate for a single regulary, but received two this week. While pouring it into the glass I was quite excited from the nice look and the smell. The first swig was okay. The taste is VERY malty and sweet ... too sweet for my taste on the second swig.

Amber to dark brown colour, with a small beige head. Bread, cereal, chocolate on the nose. The taste is cloyingly sweet, unfitting for a beer. The for this style typical burnt and cocoa-like notes are not present here. Oily mouthfeel, medium body. It’s not what a beer, let alone a porter should taste like, but honestly I liked it, because I’m a guy with a sweet tooth. Mea culpa.

Prezencja żadna - piana mizerna, szybko opada, kolor karmazynowy/brązowy, w zasadzie nie ma za bardzo o czym pisać. Aromat lekki, trochę palonego słodu, gdzieś z tyłu skórka od chleba, słabo. Nuda. W smaku dominują nuty karmelowe, goryczki zero, ze smaków kawowych jest tylko bliżej nieokreślona kwaśność. Wszystko delikatne, stonowane, przeraźliwie nudne.

Zarkam (457) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 21, 2014
500ml bottle from Gourmondo.de, darkish brown colour, small rocky beige head, fair lacing. Moderately malty aroma of caramel and bread with a hint of chocolate and nuts, light floral hops. Taste is initally very sweet and slightly acidic, turning into an abrupt moderately sweet and slightly bitter finish. Oily texture, medium body, average carbonation. Reminds me more of an African nonalcoholic malt beverage than a porter, way too sweet.

bhensonb (11378) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Bottle from a shop in Prenzler Berg. Pours a rather light brown, almost a dark orange. Slight beige head. Aoma is dark malt, in a light way, and I am thinking/imagining a little chocolate. Med body. Flavor is sweet med med dark malt. Might be some hop. Seems to have an attempt at a balancing bitter in the finish. Not one of the tastiest schwarzes.

Bottle at Aufsturz, Berlin, September 2014. Brownish/read with a small head. Very sweet and thin with sugar, some fruit and nuts. It was hard to finish the bottle.

miggle (186) - Fürth, GERMANY - AUG 26, 2014
Poors dark black. Head is very weak and gone in a second. Smell is very weak and has some disturbing taste. Very malty aroma. Beer is very very sweet. Makes even more thirsty. Too much sweetness and too less taste.

Douberd (2486) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUL 22, 2014
Bottl, 500ml, poured into a big Guinness glass at home, ABV 4.4% Brown colour on the body, small and thin tan head, with okay retention, leaving light lacing on the glass. Aroma of malts, caramel, hay. Wow, way too sweet! Very malty taste, dirty hay, sugar, molasses, sticky caramel. Medium thick body, low carbonation, very sticky on the palate. What a failure, definitely not a porter and is a bad one even for a schwarzbier.

Oelbas (196) - DENMARK - JUL 21, 2014
Klar mørk rødbrun med ikke særlig holdbart hvidt skum. Duften er domineret af græs, en smule malt og en antydning af rust (???). Smagen er tynd, sukkersød og maltdomineret. Eftersmagen er sød med kun en antydning af bitterhed. Den har intet at gøre med en baltisk porter eller porter for den sags skyld. En opskaleret hvidtøl er en mere præcis betegnelse.
