a big beer - chocolate and coffee and caramel aplenty, lots of body which is nice - extra "complexity" courtesy of solventy fusels and vegetal flavours, which are not too much to wreck it, fortunately, but still detract a bit. Once you get past that it’s pleasant. Plenty of malt heft. i expected worse, this isn’t bad at all.

Szopeen (227) - Toruń, POLAND - MAY 20, 2016
Praktycznie czarne, z ładną pianą. W aromacie czekolada, rodzynki. W smaku dochodzi jeszcze lekka paloność. Odpowiednia goryczka, pijalne, alkohol niewyczuwalny.

ATP (156) - POLAND - MAY 12, 2016
Czarne, z lekkimi brązowymi przebłyskami. W aromacie palone słody, karmel, lekka czekoladka, karmel i sporo alkoholu z dodatkiem gwoździ. W smaku jest bardzo podobnie. Alkohol jest dość nachalny, podobnie jak bardziej rzucające się żelazo. Jest też przypalony chleb, karmel, orzechy, czekoladka. Koncernowy porter. Szału nie ma, dupy nie urywa.

wombat23 (378) - Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2016
Shared 16.9 oz. bottle. Pours an opaque dark brown with a foamy beige head. Messy lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, licorice and dark fruits. Taste is roasted malt, licorice, dark fruits, and chocolate notes. Also has an iron/rust element that is rather unpleasant at first, but this fades as it warms. Warming alcohol finish. Good.

Kiezmar (217) - POLAND - MAY 8, 2016
[Archiwum] Kolor: Czarne. Nieprzejrzyste. Piana: Ładna, obfita. Opadła stosunkowo szybko ale zostawiła po sobie śliczną koronkę na szklance. Zapach: Kawa, czekolada i nuty palone. Bardzo przyjemny aromat. Smak: Paloność, czekolada i kawa. Dość pełne w smaku. Niestety z czasem czuć dość wyraźnie alkohol, który nieco psuje cały efekt.

darbeer75 (316) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - MAY 6, 2016
Aroma: very sweet and malty with faint apple juice notes; Appearance: pitch black with fluffy, tan head that dissipates slowly; Taste: fairly typical baltic porter, meaning that I didn’t care for it; long, sweet, apple juice finish with slight smokiess; Overall; not so great; can definitely do without.

Hermod (5861) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAY 6, 2016
50cl bottle. Pours black with a thick brown head. Roasted malt, ash, hops, licorice. Full bodied. Dark chocolate, cocoa powder, some metal notes, ashy finish. Licorice lingers. Quite nice, but the metallic notes disturbs a little.

madchemist83 (239) - USA - APR 26, 2016
Caramel, candy, toasted seeds, roasted malts. Pours dark brown with thin head. Malty a bit astringent backbone is offset by residual sweetness. Pretty smooth for high alcohol.

adster (632) - HUNGARY - APR 26, 2016
Kólaszínű ital tiszteletre méltó beltartalommal, főleg, ha nagyüzemi jellegűnek tekintjük magát a márkát, mely azonban valóban képes megállni a helyét a minőség terén is. Balti porterként tekintve rá kissé talán híján van egy kevésbé elegáns, bumfordibb vonalvezetésű, amolyan tejcukros desszertszerűségnek, a hamus alapvetések mellett sokkal inkább visszaköszönnek a már-már savanykásan robusztus jegyek. Ez voltaképpen egyáltalán nem hiba, az pedig, ahogyan az alkoholtartalom marad ügyesen a háttérben, ugyancsak elismerésre méltó.
