KeefOz (851) - Tarragindi, - JAN 23, 2013
Poured an opaque black colour with a slight red tinge. A one-finger thick bubbly tan coloured head laced well throughout. Aroma strongly sweet malt with roasted grain. Taste initially of sweet roasted malts followed by an alcohol bitterness that dominated the after-taste. The alcohol took longer to dissipate than the malt and grain flavours. Medium body. Long bitter finish dominated by alcohol and roasted grain detracted from the overall performance of the beer.

Aromat bardzo przyjemny, mocno wyczuwalne nuty czekolady, paloności, troszkę kawy z mlekiem. Piana drobna, zwarta, bardzo ładnie zdobi szkło. Kolor ciemny prawie nieprzejrzysty, przebijają czerwone przebłyski. W smaku czuć blachę, alkohol, praktycznie te dwa smaki przyćmiewają całą resztę. Gorycz średnia. Jeśli chodzi o odczucie w ustach, piwo ciut zbyt mało wysycone, ale zostawia przyjemny posmak w ustach. Goryczka trochę zalega. Ogólnie pomimo bardzo przyjemnego aromatu, smak nie pozostawia złudzeń, niezbyt dobry porter.

Taboada (280) - Compostela (Galiza), - JUL 14, 2014
Tasted from tap on the Mulheim an de ruhr bierborse. Dark colour with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, dark fruits, brown sugar and chocolate. Taste has some caramel, brown sugar, dark chocolate and malts. The flavour is well balanced but with a lot of presence of the alcohol. Aftertaste is sweet and dry. Next one please!

kamwitsta (121) - POLAND - JUL 9, 2014
The aroma does have some chocolate/coffee notes but mostly it?s alcohol. Pours black with a large, off-white, relatively stable head. The taste is quite bitter and a little bit sour; sadly, the bitterness is not as much roasted as it is burnt. Fullish body, a little creamy, lightly carbonated, has an intensely bitter, a bit tart, and overall unpleasant finish. Appearance is the only positive aspect of this beer; alcohol is much too pronounced, roastiness is overdone to the point of being burnt; I?m definitely not coming back.

Jultsu (133) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - JUL 3, 2014
Kahvisen kermainen vaahto, tummanmusta väri. Tuoksu alkoholinen, lähes spriimäinen. Maussa hivenen yllättäen banaania? Lisäksi myös aivan pikkiriikkisen alkoholia, myös kahvia. Sopiva hapotus, suussasulavan pehmeä ja liukas liikkeissään kitalaesta alaspäin. Jättää myös jälkeensä liukkauden, niljaisuuden. Pisteitä verottaa laimea ja ohut jälkimaku. Edellisissä pulloissa oli selkeä palaneen maku, tässä ei. Liekö vaihtelevuutta tuotantoerissä?

superspak (2455) - Michigan, USA - JUL 1, 2014
500 ml bottle into snifter, best before 9/28/2013. Pours nearly opaque dark brown color with a 2 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toast, dark bread, roasted malt, raisin, prune, brown sugar, molasses, light herbal, and roast/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and moderate fruity yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toast, dark bread, raisin, prune, brown sugar, molasses, herbal, and roast/yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy herbal/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, cocoa, toast, dark bread, roasted malt, raisin, prune, brown sugar, molasses, herbal, and roast/yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity and robustness of dark/bready malt, yeast ester, and earthy hop flavors; with a a great malt/yeast balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a creamy, smooth, and lightly slick/chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a small warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice Baltic porter. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt, yeast ester, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Norovgath (5) - Poznań, POLAND - JUL 1, 2014 does not count
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2014 Butelka 500ml. Kolor ciemny brunatny, z niską pianą. Nisko wysycony. Zapach suszonych śliwek, rodzynek, gorzkiej czekolady, lekko palony. W smaku bardzo gorzka czekolada, alkohol, palone słody. Finisz z solidną czekoladową goryczką. Dobre jak na koncerniaka.

Very nice porter, the alcohol is masked pretty nicely by the malt. Nice aroma.

Definitely the best beer from Zywiec Group. It’s actually quite good porter, what is totally aberrant in Poland that huge brewery like Zywiec can make so good beer.
