COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Bottle from bottle shop in Krakow. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of licorice, roasted malts, coffee, hints of alcohol and dark chocolate. Flavor is espresso, licorice, candi sugar with a bitter, slightly sour finish. Oily mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Really nice baltic porter.

jacenty (5) - POLAND - AUG 21, 2014 does not count
Pours black, almost opaque with ruby reflexes. Very nice light beige tall head, reducing to a long lasting layer, leaving some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, alcohol, coffee and dark chocolate. Taste of coffee, licorice. Pretty sweet, but thankfully bitterness is high. Leaves a long bitter and a bit sour aftertaste. Medium carbonation, maybe a bit too high and pleasant mouthfeel, it’s not too sticky. Very good baltic porter.

Bottle @ Whole Foods, Sarasota, FL. Smells really good. Looks great. Taste is a bit too much coffee for me. Left a smidgen of bitter aftertaste. Not the best Baltic Porter i’ve had, but it is only the 2nd one i’ve tried.

(Flasche) es hat eine schwarze undurchsichtige farbe mit einer weißen schaumkrone. Das aroma ist röstig mit etwas blaubeere und etwas brot. Der geschmack ist eher schlank, samtig, sonst wie das aroma. Im abgang kommt eine breite bittere raus mit einem leicht alkoholischen note

Couleur sombre-noire avec bonne mousse beige. Nez fort grillé, malté café et noisette, notes sucrées. Gout plus doux de malt grillé, café, notes chocolat, bien lègère en bouche malgrés l’acool et fort aromes. Pas mal!
