Black beer with deep ruby notes, fine tan head. Strong aroma of coffe and dark chocolates, plum and raisins. The flavor is powerful too with roasted grains, cocoa beans, dark chocolate, coffe and some spices like clove and cinnamon. Interesting and powerful one with a well hidden alcohol, delicious roasted aftertaste. arkurzynski (2427) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 14, 2013
Dark brown pour. Nose of sweet toasted malt, cocoa, molasses, and light roasted malt. Flavor is chewy toasted malt and molasses with a light finish of bitter chocolate, roasted malt and raisins. Some alcohol residual sugar plums. Way sweeter than expected. Just didn’t work. Rosebud butternuts (2396) - Denton, Texas, USA - DEC 15, 2010

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2014 Direct from the bottle. aroma of caramel, syrup, chocolate. Full body. Huge caramel finish. good porter Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - OCT 12, 2010
Looks good, great head formation and retention, nice and slippery, medium body, very dark, great contrasting head. Smell has raisin and roastiness, sweetness in the smell never gets out of control. Iron and earthy molasses in there. The flavor, though, still is a touch too sweet for my liking - it may be perfectly tradition (and I’d say it is close!) but it doesn’t develop the naturalness that is in the aroma very well, instead veering towards a one-dimensional wet fermented raisin, fruitcake and cinnamon bread quality, with a touch too much alcohol. Bummer, too, as this is clearly a good beer. One of the best in Poland? Not so sure...

It’s quite good baltic porter example, but surely not near the best ones. Full od dark malt and chocolate in the aroma. Taste - also dark chocolate, a bit of coffee. Dark, non-transparent. scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - NOV 20, 2009
Very dark earthy brown, medium bodied, creamy tan head. Milk chocolate and some toasty grain. Creamy, more toast, some chocolate creaminess. Kind of stops there, little light in body and slick. Swaroga (2217) - Warszawa, POLAND - AUG 12, 2012
UPDATED: APR 1, 2017 50cl bottle. Dark brown, almost black with small tanned head. Nose : toffee, chocolate, cheese. Subtil burned malt aromas reminds of a fresh coffee. Sip : first of all the body is mild, medium density with creamy, smooth texture. Very pleasent to swallow. Sweet with strong toffee notes. Nicely burned malt flavor. Dairy feeling with some little aromatic hops in the aftertaste. The alcohol is well hidden. The beer is really nice.
