3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma has dark chocolate and herbs. Dark red/black, big frothy head is beige and medium long and leaves lacing. Taste has roasted coffee, dark chocolate, some dark fruits in finish, also salty licorice. More nuances as this beer gets warmer. Soft and full bodied, dry and roasted. Good nicely flavored porter for Christmas time.

Bottle. Large brown bubbly head that mostly lasted. Fair display of lacework. Sparkling light mahogany color. Light dry malty feel, with a hint of light roasted malty notes as well. Hint of coffee as well. Over the palate came surprisingly strong notes, with sweet coffee, hint of chocolate and roasted malty notes. Medium bodied with an average carbonation. Moderated sweet flavor with some counter bitterness. Lingering roasted malty and coffee finish. Quite nice actually.

REWELACJA. Bardzo dobry bałtycki porter. Nie za mocny ale dość rozgrzewający w przełyku. intensywny aromat słodu karmelowego współgra ze smakiem. piana mocna i tworzy się dość szybko i jest trwała. Ciemne piwo z miedzianymi refleksami

Nice roasted aroma really comes through on this one. Pours very dark with a moderate head. Maltiness is very apparent in the taste and is consistent throughout the length of the drink. Rich and heavier, this is very satisfactory, especially as a more of a dessert beer.

Bottle. Pours nicely, but foam dissapears very quickly. Nice dark red colour, but very faint smell. Sweet, lots of caramel. Overall nice drink.
