Bottle 0,50L. Clear, dark, ruby brown colour with large, creamy, light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, coffee, milk chocolate and cocoa. Taste is light bitter in the begining followed by blackberry and chocolate to the medium bitter finish with long lasting aftertaste. Full bodied beer with creamy texture an soft carbonation. One of the best baltic porters I had so far...

Bottle. Pours a dark brown, almost black body, with an average light brown head that diminishes quickly, leaving a fair lace. Nice caramel and coffee on the nose, very nice medium to heavy sweet taste, also some bitterness, notes of caramel and vanilla. Medium bodied, oily texture, nice carbonation level. Definately enjoyed this one, very nice.

Clear dark brown. Light, firm and creamy head. Intensive raisins and dried fruit aroma. Some coffee notes. Well-balanced taste, raisins, coffee notes and dark bread crust. Well hidden alcohol, medium carbonation, creamy mouthfeel. Medium long finish with decent bitterness. Easily comparable to American and British porters.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown with an orange tint, and a creamy, frothy, tan, lasting medium head. Earthy caramel smell with dark malt and raisins. Medium thin body. Nice deep taste of dark bitter and sweet Carmel with soft roast and a blackberry bitter finish. A bitter finish doesn’t have much roast which gives the porter name. Not bad but could use a bit more balance.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours in black color body, with glances of ruby against the light, medium creamy tan head. Aroma has notes of dried plums, light licorice, toasty, lots of caramel, light chocolate. Taste has dried fruits and nutty sweetness upfront followed right away by light earthy noble bitterness, pretty well balanced. Body is full, low carbonation. This is pretty good served with loaded nachos.

Bottle from Maria bottle shop in Krakow. Reminds me more of a dark dunkel beer with its caramel malty taste. And that dark reddish-brown looks. Fair enough beer. A little boring.

Thanks to quack-duck for that one! Bottle looks simple but really good. Beer in the glass deep black, nice head. Roasty-malty aroma. Starts strong-malty, roasty, a bit earthy-woody. Hints of cinnamon and liquorice, not too dry. Soft-malty finish with hints of chocolate. Really good!
