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: It’s 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 it’s 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 it’s a bit boozy, it doesn’t 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. It’s almost as if this is designed for drinkability over richness; in regards to the former, it’s pretty successful. O: This is a very dangerous brew. It’s inexpensive and drinkable, with only mild hints to suggest its actual strength. While not fantastic, it’s a great way to get drunk on the cheap(ish) - I know I’d much rather drink this over some crappy Euro malt liquor.

Manslow (185) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 26, 2015
Butelka 0,5l Kolor ciemnobrązowy, piana średnia, nagazowanie idealne. Aromaty słodowe, czekoladowe i owocowe. Smak słodko gorzki, karmelowy palony. Alkohol niewyczuwalny pod karmelowym dominującym smakiem. Wyśmienite piwo, jeden z najlepszych porterów bałtyckich.

Jankes (84) - Krakow, POLAND - APR 24, 2015
Wygląd niemal idealny, piana dośc krótkotrwała. Aromat palonych słodów, nieco tostowy i troszeczkę kawowy. Piwo dojrzewało w butelce przez ponad rok, dało to całkiem ciekawy smak. Zdecydowana słodowość kontrowana posmakiem suszonych owoców i podbita lekką alkoholowością dała na finiszu bardzo interesujący efekt wiśni w likierze. Goryczka przeciętna. Całkiem sporo ciała. Bardzo dobry porter.

Bottle. Pours almost pitch black with a small beige head. Complex aroma of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and also dried fruits. Sweet taste with notes of choclate, caramel, fruits. Full bodied beer, oily texture, lightl alcoholic finish. Great baltic porter from Zywiec.

Mackeon (102) - - APR 12, 2015
A very fine porter, full-bodied, great mouthfeel, and a powerful alcoholic kick, all in all a great drink. Much better than most US and UK porters and stouts with their watery aftertaste and lack of real strength, this porter has it all and it comes in a nice bottle with a simple, effective label. Highly recommended!

CaptainTilven (39) - FRANCE - APR 11, 2015
Tasted at La table du bon roi Stanislas (Nancy, France), with quail sirloins wraped in smoked ham and then with chestnut marzipan cake and coffee sauce - both very enjoyable match. Black colour, dark beige foam like wich leaves nice laces. Smell and taste of toast, dried fruit, coffee, candi sugar.

500ml bottle brought by a Polish friend. Pours dark brown/black with a thin head. Roasted malt/chocolate aroma. Roasted chocolate taste. I like the fact that i still have a few in the cellar.

karpik (69) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - APR 8, 2015
BB: 21.08.2016, so the fresh one. Aroma is roasted malt, some chocolate. Dark brown colour with tall brown-ish head. Taste is slightly metallic at the beginning, but after a while does not bother. Roasted malts, caramel and dark chololate at the finish with alcoholic warming.
