Dark, dark and dark. Interesting beer, has alot of flavor and character. Sweet to semi-sweet. Has a malty zest from start to finish. Not an everyday beer but very good.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured black with a ruby red hue around the edges. Coffee, dark chocolate, and alcohol on the nose. Full and slick mouthfeel. Coffee, hops, dark chocolate, with hints of caramel on the tongue. Nice dry hop finish. This is a great baltic porter; possibly on the best examples of it style.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the bottle, pours black with a thick tan foamy head. Smells like a standard porter with chocolate and a little alcohol. Taste is the same, a little earthy bitterness to finish, but othersie thick and smooth, like a porter should be.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma: Some roast and coffee with metal and some perfume-type fruity notes, alcohol. Appearance: Nice head, high, dense and lacing. Black color. Taste: Roast, bit of coffee, a lot of metal, again perfume sweetness - similar to cheap whiskey fruit notes, a lot of alcohol. Palate: Finish is sweet and alcohol, body is full, carbonation is low. Poor is the fate of the Polish beer legend. :/

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Really horrible. Very dark brown to black. Flavour is bitter and solventy. It has good flavour (raisin and chocolate) but the harshness is just terrible. I’ve got no idea why everyone is so in love with this.

my dad gifted a bottle of this to me a few months ago before i began rating and i wanted to just try it again because i remember it being really exceptional... bottle- pours slick black with a nice tan head leaving behind wonderful lacing... a nutty aroma, some fruits roasted malts, a hint of alcohol, and chocolate. tastes quite good, very rich, chocolate malts, mixed with an oaky wood flavor, and alcohol warming occurs more delayed than usual in the throat. has a salty character to it, and great hop bitterness hint of nuts as well. a classic porter.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2008 This has a dark brown color with a thick tan head that thined out over time and left some nice laceing along the sides of the glass. As i smelt it the aroma bombarded my nose with an intence nuttyness followed by roasted coffee and caramel malt. Even thogh the coffee was pleasing to the nose the nuts overwelmed the smell. As i took a sip the beer had a good initial hop bitterness with a coffee and chocolate coating on the sides of my tounge and mouth. The finish was nice and creamy and it resembled a candy bar.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Beautiful black with thin tan head, now already gone. Too bad, it was nice. Odd smell to me, sweet, molasses, slight malt, coffee maybe. Theres the bitterness finally in the smell, I can sense the hint of saltiness like a soy sauce as well. If tastes quite nice for a porter. The flavor is a nice bitterness, not a harsh hops bitterness. Tastes like coffee beans and is a nice smooth beer. Can't believe the Polish could make something this nice. My wife will be proud. Very nice to say the least

Very dark brown with dark dark froth. Aroma is mostly malt. Strong alcohol, dark fruit, and malt flavor. Bittersweet. Full-bodied but not too syrupy. more dry like a stout. A bit flat. Very nice lingering bitter finish.
