4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
(Bottle BB 15/06/06) Aroma of roasted malty, coffee and light alcohol. Black colour and light brown, small size, rapidly almost fully diminishing head with fair lacing. Heavily roasted malty (almost burned), moderately bitter, licorice, coffee and fruity flavour. Softly carbonated, dry and light alcoholic (warming) palate. This is very delicious beer, which is a perfect late night drink! 13/05/06

This is a very strongly flavoured beer, to me tastes like cold coffee. Very bitter aftertaste. It’s just too bad that it didn’t taste as good as it looked.

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2006 Dark brown, thick and stable head. Aroma of dark bread but mostly of alcohol and organic solvents. Tastes like a bad coffee. Aggressive in the mouth, irritating bitterness. It’s a pity they can’t or don’t want to make Zywiec Porter what it was 20 years ago. I am surprised by the enthusiastic reviews it got here. They must send a different brew to the States.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (best before 8-9-06). Pours a very deep mahogany color with a fluffy tan head. The taste starts off with a little bit of hops then goes to a chocolate, roasted malt flavor. The falvor is pretty complex and well balanced. The 9.5% is hid very well, I would have put the alcohol around 6%.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
(500 ml bottle (best before 10/14/06), gift from <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?UserID=2 target=blank>OhioDad, thanks Scott!) Pours pitch black with a tan head that recedes to a nice thin creamy crown. Aroma surprisingly restrained but notes of coffee and molasses. Nice weepy rings of lace. Mouthfeel fairly smooth, a bit tingly. Has a flavor of bitter coffee with some bitter chocolate underneath. Good but flavor actually hard to really identify, not much depth or richness. Alcohol very well hidden.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
