This beer smelled good. It had an extremely clear flavor for a stout. It was crisp and strong. A lot of different flavors goiung on here. I may have to re-rate this beer when I am not as wasted. I liked it though.

Too much alcohol flavor for a porter. The alcohol completely dominated the aroma and the taste. I didnít care for this beer.

A very good doppelbock, er, I mean, porter from Okocim. Itís certainly a very íbockyí porter, and from the comments of some experienced raters, is somewhat representative of the Baltic porter style. If, as Philly beer2112 says, this is bottom-fermented, doesnít that make this a lager? I thought it was indeed sweet, but not overly so as the very strong malts came through to balance everything out well. A good PorterBock.

IMHO, this is not nearly as bad, nor nearly as good, as some of the more experienced raters believe that it is. The main problem here is that the flavor is not even in Zyweicís league..slight chocolate malt but not complexity of other flavors, and the initial malt flavor quickly disappears. However, the finish, albeit amazingly and horrifically dry, is not out of balance. For an abv over 8%, this is impressively drinkable.

Fruity and alcoholic nose demands your attention from the beginning... a little teasing, as the beer was sweeter than I expected. A lot of dark fruit flavors swirling around that I liked: a little prune and plum, but mostly raisin. Warming alcohol in the finish; made the blood rush to the cheeks. A little twangy-sourness thing going on, which made my mouth shrivel a little - in a good way, of course. A little sweet spiciness popped up the olfactory passage. Donít really have too many beers to compare to this (in this sub-style), so itís hard to rate. All I know is, itís not my ideal porter.

My first experience with the Baltic porter style, and it definitely takes some getting used to. After my first couple of sips, I was sure I wouldnít finish the bottle; but, mysteriously, the flavor grew on me. It helped that the beer warmed up; this is *much* better at room temperature than it is refrigerated! Update: I have to knock this beer down a few points because somehow, the memory of it just isnít appealing; I really have no desire to drink another bottle.

Well it ainít Zywiec thats for sure. Nice looking but a weird vegetable/malt aroma. For some reason i bought this thinking it was Oakes approved. OH wait, that was MJ I apologize to Oakes for ever confusing the two.

Not good at all. Way too bitter, and a flavoring like tar.

Not my idea of good. Some soy action going on. I can understand why others might like it, but it just went way too far for me.

A STRONG porter, more in the range of an imperial stout. Malty and roasty aromas and flavors. A lot of residuals for the strength. A one and done type of quaff.
