3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Almost bronze head, but disappears immediately, very dark brown, bitterness coming from roastiness, caramel, black smoked malt, sweet, coffee,some fruity hints characteristic for a porter, especially cherry and to a lesser extent roasted plum or prune. Not the best of Polish baltic porters but still one of them.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml can, via rickgordon. Pours a dark mahogany brown under a foamy beige head that retained as a creamy film. Thick sheets of lacing. Aroma is full of licorice, chocolate fudgecake, burnt caramel, a little vanilla, and a hint of marshmellow. Flavor is a nice combo of licorice, roast, chocolate fudge, and light alcohol. Finishes with some caramel and a touch of raisin. Mouthfeel is thick and oily with a nice cloying sweetness on the finish. Nice moderate soft carbonation. A really good Baltic Porter, seems to really hit the style on the head. I’d venture to say that this is somewhat under-rated.
