UPDATED: MAY 25, 2005 This is a very rich and full beer. Very well balanced and a looong palate. A pity it can not be bought in DK... Rerate 040305: Still a really great beer, and now it is available in Copenhagen (-:

Awesome porter, full mouthfeel, not very thick like a Russian.Black, nice head, fresh bottle. Coffee, chocolate, roasted fabulously, cocoa and a tad grainyness. Low in yeast and carbonation. Somewhat bitter towards finish then malty aftertaste. Satisfying by itself, without food.

spporras (259) - FINLAND - MAY 15, 2006
(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

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2006 500 oz bottle via slob(thanks!). Pours a black color with a mohageny tint.. Aroma of toasted vanilla, cherries, chocolate and plums. Wow, this is good. An complex. Vanilla, toffee, roasted chocolate and coffee with a wonderful roasted coffee finish. Bittersweet licorice aftertaste. The roasted malts play off and counterbalance the sweetness perfectly. Full bodied. Now this is what a truely great BALTIC porter should taste like.

This beer is the best porter I have had a must try.A gift from my friend and beer guy Paul.Starts with a dark brown to rubby red pour with a awesome caramel head.Aromas of dark fruits like raisins,plums and figs but wait a back note of stawberrys and burnt sugars.If you think that sounds good just wait it taste better.Hands down best porter out where.

Zapach z butelki: Kawa zbożowa z czekoladą, skórka ciemnego chleba, suszone śliwki. Piana: Brązowa drobnoziarnista, dość nietrwała. Redukuje się do kożuszka. Oblepia szkło. Kolor: Ciemnobrązowe, klarowne z jasnobrązowymi refleksami. Zapach: Kawa zbożowa z likierem, pralinkami, truflami. Za nią gorzka czekolada z rodzynkami. Smak: Wysoka paloność, kawowość. Spora podbudowa w postaci głębokiej słodyczy przełamanej przez likierowość i kwaśność słodów palonych. Tekstura: Gęste i ciężkie, wykleja podniebienie palonością. Nasycenie: Średnio-niskie. Goryczka: Średnio-wysoka, nieco agresywna i gryząca. Pijalność: Średnio-wysoka. Pijąc ciekawe piwa, zwłaszcza od niedawna, łatwo wpaść w pułapkę - "co od koncernu, to musi być niedobre". Nic bardziej mylnego. Podobnie jak nadanie piwu etykietki "rzemieślniczego" nie wpływa samo w sobie na jego smak, tak i nie należy spodziewać się, że co z koncernu, to zawsze będzie kiepskie. Oto okazuje się, że Grupa Żywiec robi dobrą robotę w Brackim Browarze Zamkowym. Cieszyński porter jest doprawdy znakomity. Bardzo solidna pozycja i przy tym szeroko dostępna. Żywiec porter prezentuje satysfakcjonującą paloność, balans słodyczy z goryczą i do tego przyjemnie szlachetne, pralinkowo-rodzynkowe nuty w aromacie. Wszystko, czego oczekiwałbym od porteru bałtyckiego. Po prostu dobre piwo, polecam.

Couldn’t be more excited to review my first Baltic Porter, and this Polish beauty was a hell of a way to start into the style. Appearance seduced me right away. Almost-black body, creamy head, sticky lacing. Smell is huge and assertive. Cocoa, coffee, syrupy fruit aromas, and a whole lotta booze. Flavor follows the nose. Rich, spicy cocoa at the fore; fresh, strong coffee after that; and boozy fruit finishing things off with prune, plum, currant, and dry sherry. This Porter is the perfect match for a fine cheese and a cold evening. Until now, this was a beer that I’ve seen before but knew little about it. Glad I know about it, now!
