Super piwko na zimne dni. Nie jest to můj ulubiony styl, niektůre portery wręcz mnie czasem męczą, ale ten do takich nie należy. Świetny, zbalansowany smak.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a dark cola color, revealing hints of ruby-red translucence when held up to a light. A two-finger mocha head is formed with a beautiful creaminess and very strong retention. As it slowly recedes, it leaves behind large sheets of lacing down the glass.
S: Itís very forward in dark fruits, chocolate, and molasses. Distant notes of roast, coffee, and mild hops are hidden behind the sweet maltiness. My only real problem is how mild the aroma is - which is a shame, because itís good otherwise.
T: Sweetness opens the flavor profile strongly, with strong caramel, dark fruit, and chocolate qualities. This will transition to a very roasty, mildly hoppy finish. Hints of earth and booze pop up on the back end, as well. While itís a bit boozy, it doesnít really hinder its drinkability, thanks to the mildness of flavor. It even has a bit of depth to it. The booze note gets stronger as it warms up, so drink cold.
M: A bit on the thin side, with a typical crisp lager bite on the finish and strong carbonation. Itís almost as if this is designed for drinkability over richness; in regards to the former, itís pretty successful.
O: This is a very dangerous brew. Itís inexpensive and drinkable, with only mild hints to suggest its actual strength. While not fantastic, itís a great way to get drunk on the cheap(ish) - I know Iíd much rather drink this over some crappy Euro malt liquor.

500 ml bottle. Immediate malt chocolate taste that builds to a flavor burst on the roof of your mouth in the middle. Not too sweet with a thick almost syrupy feel.

This deep dark beautiful looking beer lacks a distinguishing aroma. It pours with very little head. It hits your tongue with a strong oaky bite. The flavor rounds out with a strong black coffee finish. Smoky and flavorful this beer is well done.

33cl bottle from Chopin Airport, Warszawa. Pours black with creamy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark fruits, chocolate, raisins and hints of licorice, coffee, caramel and alcohol. Medium sweet with nice roasty flavours and a well balanced bitterness. Medium to full body with a slightly soft carbonation. Flavourful and delicious.

Solidny porter o wyrazistym smaku suszonych śliwek. Ładna, kremowa, choć nietrwała piana. Irytująca, mocno wyczuwalna nuta żelaza.
