4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is my favorite Czech beer, You can try it on tap at select pubs in Prague, including one that has a sign outside for it between Narodni Trida metro and Karlovo Namesti. You turn down Myslikova off of Spalena, and it is just off the corner there. It can also be found at the outlet by Florence metro. It is best on tap; a delicious porter, with all the best qualities of its kind.

Pardubicky Porter pours to a deep, deep brown to black color with a thick and creamy tan head, and a soft to moderate amount of carbonation. The nose on this beer is just jam packed with big sweet and dark malty aroma. Aromas of sweet malt, caramel, and dark chocolate marry with a back drop of peppery alcohol. This is a potent brew, coming in at 8.5% abv. The body is rich and full on the tongue, with lots of big dark chocolate and sweet malty flavors, and undertones of coffee and roast. While the body is full, it is also very round and clean, allowing you to really taste the pure malt character in this beer. Pardubicky Porter finishes with more big chocolatey and sweet malty flavors up front, then ends with a soothing, warming, burn. Excellent Czech version of Baltic Porter.

Very dark brown with an even tan head; toffee, roast and hop aroma; very sweet/bitter taste with roast, chicory, liquorice, caramel and dates aromas; bitter finish with liquorice, hop, raisins, toast, coffee, and cream aromas. A legendary beer and one that easily lives up to its reputation. A seamless fusion of sweetness and bitterness (from both malt and hops), it explodes with flavour in the mouth. It finishes with a roasty bitterness that lasts and lasts. I think this is the highest score I’ve ever given a bottom-fermented beer. Simply wonderful. Who gives a toss if it tastes like a "porter"? Call it a Doppelbock, call it a Baltic Porter, or even an Imperial Münchner. It still tastes great. What else matters?

Smell has roasted hops, head is dark and lasts quite long and leaves nice lacing to the glass. Taste is like a storm in autumn night. Taste is darkish roasted malts and other malts combination. This is the best dark beer I’ve tasted, from porter fan.

Dark, clear, reddish mahogany color with a big off-white head.
The aroma is sweet, of malt, caramel and chestnut honey with a good balance of mellow caramel and burnt sugar, giving the right bitterness.
The final has some burnt sugar and roasted nuts, It finishes with a roasty bitterness that lasts and lasts.
Sirupy oil body, complex and unique brew, moderate carbonate.
Great baltic porter beer.

Oh. Fantastic well-balanced beer. Nice black with fizzy brown head (unfortunately diminishing early) full-bodied smoky porter with toffee and coffe aroma. Thickness is remarkable for a porter. Flavour is firstly sweet malty and turns to a perfect bitterness. Aftertaste is long and Hmmm....Delicous.
Uniqe or as Duke Ellington would say: That’s the one!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2003 Color is a very dark brown with super deep ruby fragments inside, large billowing head grew with strength to over two fingers high of tannish thick fluff, lulls into a rocky topped lighter tan as it wanes down slowly to a solid skim and lacing in moth-holed sheets at first but eventually breaking away during consumption.
Aroma is nice and malty with a good load of dark fruits of raisin and plum, with figs intertwined over a dark toffee richness. Touches of roastyness, cocoa, and light coffee appear as it warms. A very rich and eloquent fruitfulness with inticing subtleties.
Taste has some soft cloying sweet chewy toffee upfront that dissolves away into a dark fruit potpourri of raisin, plum, and fig that has a little crispened roasty/smoked twinge on top leveling off to a sweet play of maltyness with more toffee and bits of caramel, molasses, and cocoa ending with a little crisp finish leaving trails of a slightly burnt sweetness behind. Actually seems to gain some strength towards the finish. A nice little effect.
Feel is thick, smooth and somewhat silky with a favorable malty creamyness and sweet twang thats solid in medium body and seems to get a bit more full towards the end. Nice.
A very good baltic porter no doubt, much like a dopplebock - and there ain't nothin' wrong with that.

Wow. Bottled 330ml, bought at Beer Paradise, Holstebro. A glorious porter. Aroma molasses, caramel, maybe smoky. Good lacing, frothy tan head, glorious flavour, liquorice, fruity and caramel. Beautiful stuff. The bottle I got looks different to the one shown here.
