COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Everything together creates a unique combination of taste. Production of this Porter was moved to Bracki Bowar in 2004 .

Beer pours black with a ring around the glass retained head. Aroma is a bit restained, but has notes of chocolate, coffee, and roasted malt. Flavor is very nicely done. Rich dark chocolate with some roasted nuts, a dash of dark fruit. Also a bit of dry hoppy flavor. Alcohol burn upon hitting the esophagus, otherwise, alcohol is totally hidden. Good, but I have had better Baltics. Heart felt thanks to Andre’ for this one.

500 ml bottle thanks to Kramer17801. Not as dark as I had expected. Very dark brown, but not plack. Decent head and decent lacing. Aromas were chocolate and much roastiness, but rather faint. Flavor were a bigger kick. Very sweet at first with chocolate and caramel. Almost a touch of banana in there. That’s wierd, is that right? hmmm. Alcohol warming takes over from there. Alcohol in the middle and the finish. Pretty smooth, and Pretty tasty.

Bottle. Pours a very dark reddish-brown with an average size tan head. Slightly mild sweet aroma of caramel malt, chocolate, dark fruit and alcohol. Flavour hits me with an abundance of alcohol along with some sweet malt, chocolate, cola and a light burnt bitter finish. Syrupy mouthfeel and an average body. A little too sweet and boozy to make this a top-notch Baltic, I prefer the Okocim Porter.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - APR 10, 2006
Pours black brown with medium froth and slight residual effers. The nose is full bitter leather,yum. This baltic specimen is a bitter sweet example of the style. Starts out nice with sweet coffee and leather then like a woman scorned while fornicating finishes with a bitterness that lingers. Makes me want to smoke. This stuff rocks. Very complex. Alcohol is well hidden like a mistress in your closet. Overall; I fully recommend this.

DocLock (8246) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 6, 2006
Found this in Super Saver in Somerville, NJ. The pour was blackish with some ruby edges. The aroma was big chocolate malt, some rauchy dark fruit. The palate was on the dense side, with flavors that were sweet, ranging from up front malt to back end chocolate syrupy and slightly rauchy elements. Well balanced.

Very good, but it has a taste of a little like copper, can be the process the reason why. The colour is awesome too.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - APR 3, 2006
Best by 8/19/06. Black. Large, creamy, tan head. Nose is rich, toasty malt, anise, subtle hops and alcohol. Same flavor with a bit of ash, also. Very nice poisonous finish combining resin, anise, alcohol, and ash. Full, rich, balanced body. One of the best porters I’ve had.

Bottle shared with tupalev & jerc - courtesy of tupalev. Deep brown colour with a wispy tan head. Aroma has a strange off note, sort of stale smelling, but has a nice sweet malty character. Body is a bit thin, but OK. Flavour has lots of chocolate and malt, a bit of fruit and nut, and a slightly stale finish. I suspect this was an old bottle, but it was still a decent brew.

badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 8, 2006
black pour with no head....aroma is of caramel, cream, nuts, chocolate, coffee, and raison....flavor is quite the same and is equally satisfying...awesome cream and hazelnut hints to a wonderful chewy roasted backbone...finish had a strong alcoholic bite to it, with some metallic or coiny elements to it...nice palate
