Pours a dark ruby red with a foamy tan head. Aroma of German malt. Taste is syrupy with a roasted burnt finish that equalizes the sweetness of the malt.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours very opaque, tan colored head that disappears faster than I expected. The aroma is dark fruits, plums, raisins, chocolate, sweet toasted malts, very inviting. The taste follows the aroma, rich sweet malts, dark fruits, licorice, anis and roasted character. No alcohol detected. This is a very smooth beer, easy to drink, the body is medium to medium high with a hint of sweet burn in the aftertaste. Very good baltic porter, I would definitely try this one again

Sweet milk chocolate aroma emerges from a puffy pour out of a half-liter bottle. The taste is quite punchy though not as sweet as the aroma suggests and definitely boozier than American porters. God bless Polish brewers!

Noire d,encre, petit filet de bulle en surface.
Arômes un poil faible sur le malt torréfié et le reglisse.
Une fois en bouche c’est l’explosion de flaveurs café, superbe rondeur, bon equilibre...

While I still prefer a good English porter over a Baltic, this was fantastic. I really enjoyed the body and first impression. My problem with Baltic porters is that I typically get a strange finish. Not sweet or nutty, but like metal or booze. Anyway, as good as this was it still had that unsavory finish. Not my favorite style, but a good beer and one worth trying.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours deep brown with a finger of foamy tan head that sticks around for a few minutes. Rich roasty aromas of coffee, caramel malt and alcohol. Strong, slightly sweet flavor up front that abruptly transitions into a long burnt bitter aftertaste. As others have mentioned, this has some off-putting metallic flavors. Overall I enjoyed it, but it’s rather intense. Take your time with this one.
