Another, after Okocim Wheat, koneserski variant in the family Okocim, which promises exceptional taste and aesthetic experiences. By combining several types of malt, including Munich, caramel and roasted, and two month aging period okocimski Porter reached a unique dark color and a deep, noble taste, seasoned with hints of cedar.

This beer tasted the way I expected the inferior Dogfish Head Raison D Etre to taste. Black appearance with a a red tint and hefty mocha head, the aroma became more refined and complex with warmth. Sweet candy malt dominated the boquet from the start with impressions of cherry, raisins, and caramel playing significant roles. This beer is quite reminiscent of a good barleywine. A sweet candy malt taste also dominates the flavor--with increasing vinousness with warmth and aeration. Initially the bottom falls out of the flavor, but again, with warming, it becomes more full bodied and gains dimension and complexity--similar in body to port/sherry/communion wine. After the last sip, the lovely smell can only be said to outstrip the flavor by a small amount. An exceptionally fine brew and complex, fairly wel balanced baltic porter--my favorite to date.

Pours with the signature Baltic foam density along with its extreme creaminess and stickiness. Complex aroma of vinous notes and prunes in the forefront alongside underlying hints of rum, concord grape, sweet fruity malt (think doppelbock), heavily roasted malt, and raisin. Microscopic velevety bubbles roll off the palate and compensate for the lighter than expected body. Flavors are very complex as well: chocolate covered raisins, dark chocolate, and a perfectly sour vinous snap. Subtle (lactic) sourness is usually a turn-off for me, but in this case it is more vinous and not overly done; Just enough to give more complexity and balance the richness. Finishes with a dry cocoa feel and bitter chocolate.

Lots of flavor--bitter chocolate and toasted malts. There is an underlying sweetness. The end taste was too watery for me. Moderate hope profile.

Not a big porter fan but this one is very enjoyable. So much flavor and alcohol that it’s definitely a sipper.

pitch black. distinct brown sugar / molasses on the nose. flavors of the same with some bittersweat chocolate and alchohol mixed in. slight malty sweetness - but it almost seems more sugary. medium to thick body. hops are in the background. very nice.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2006 Bottle 500 ml. 2006 Batch.
Poured very dark brown with slight ruby light. Medium creamy head on top.
Medium dark roasted character, coffee, mocha touches softened with creamy milk.
Full bodied lager, clean well made roast touches. Bitter roast, smoky in execution. Much drier than previous years. This is good. You might find hint of ole sweet malt sugars up front on second sip but roast sparkled with clean alcohol make this beer much more whole. Aroma was good but real treat is in taste. Recommended.

I’m far from being an expert on porters, especially Baltics, but this one was very enjoyable. You can really smell thes malty sweetness during the pour. Nose is coffee, chocolate, raisin along with roasted malts. Tastes sweet at first, then some bitterness smacks the back of your tongue. Leaves a long aftertaste of dark bitter chocolate and some coffeeish notes. Next up Zyweic’s porter.

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2003 Big nose on this beer. Notes of melting chocolate, coffee, and hops (lublin?). The palate is very rich and sweet without being cloying. The finish is a little too short IMO. A nice baltic porter.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - AUG 7, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2004 Pours like Guinness but with bigger bubbles; head pretty stable but airy. Aroma of port (very strong) and chocolate. Really sweet and syrupy, and one of the most wine-like beers I've ever had. Like very dark, sweet, malted port; too much I'd say -- not enough hop bitterness to balance the thick molasses consistency and flavor. Still well worth a try, but I don't think I'll get it again soon.

Smack dab in the middle of Detroit, MI, there is a little island of all-things Eastern European; this place is called Hamtramck (pronounced Ham-tram-ick). Filled with Polish Restaurants and Ukranian Credit Uniouns, Okocim Porter runneth over in plenty. I tried this brew recipe while eating a traditional Polish meal. Very chewy and rich ... this isn’t like the porter that pappy used to sip. The alcohol is noticable, but I wouldn’t describe it as overwhelming ... more warming. This is a great beer and is a nice change from British derived porters.
