4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The best polish baltic porter out there, in my opinion, and the best baltic i’ve had. Even tho it’s out of a tin, and it’s clearly filtered, it’s absolutely amazing. Tastes a bit like the much more popular Żywiec Porter, but feels much thicker, less watery and less alcoholic - and has similar, but deeper and richer taste and aroma. Really a nice one, one of my 3 favorite Polish beers.
Bad availibility because of the brewery policy, nowhere to find on tap - lucky they haven’t dropped the production of it alltogether. Takes some effort to obtain, but totally worth it.

0.5l can kindly traded with ELDesmadre. Thanks man! This one pours a clear deep deep dark brown body and it has a small quickly bubbly and sidesticking chocolate head. It has a nice roasted and surprisingly hoppy aroma. I get tones of dark and red berries, that acidity that red currants often has, roasted malts, chocolate and I have to say, has this been barreled on bourbon? I ask because it certainly smells like it! Not in a extreme way, but there is definitely some bourbon tones here as well. Yeah, a really nice aroma! It also tastes really surprisingly good! It’s not to - but still on the sweet side, lightly roasted with smooth chocolate and caramel. I must admit that I get more of that woody bourbon-vinous touch found in the aroma as well. It’s also light fruity with a really suiting light acidity towards the finish. I would really not mind drinking this again! Really good, and I suspect this is - and will be - the best both Polish and Baltic porter I’ve had. 21.04.2012

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Alkoholisch-süßer Geruch, etwas nach Soja. Dunkel malziger, etwas süßer Antrunk, brotig werdend. Der Alkohol ist nur leicht erkennbar, was zum harmonischen Gesamteindruck beiträgt. Dunkel malziger Abgang. Harmonisch, aber nicht sehr abwechslungsreich.
