16.9 oz bottle into English pint. Pours black with deep burgandy hues showing through when held up to the light. Has a medium light tan head that dissipates in a couple of minutes leaving a blanket of foam and some lace. Aroma is ripe black cherries, Whoppers, a hint of roasted coffee. Taste is bittesweet with a touch of sour. Has a milk chocolate taste. The coffee flavor is much more pronounced in flavor than aroma. Flavor is not as strong as the aroma. Carbonation and body are medium. Not bad ’tall. Reid (2673) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 3, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2012 Euro style 500ml bottle from "Lifesource", S.Salem. $2.45
Very very classy bottle presentation.
Deep deep black beer with a very nice frothy,bubbly tan head.
Fine dark,deep dank coffee,toast,dark chocolate,fig aroams assault the nose,pickin up some cream, and slight funk..very nice.
Sweet side of Baltic Porter here..sweet with creamy undertones and figs/date fruitiness,bitter coffee after taste.
Ok on the tongue..slightly less than expected but that enhances drinkability.
Good beer for a cheap price..thinking this would be an excellent Christmas dinner dessert beer. Fatehunter (2640) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 26, 2012
Poured into a pint glass. About a finger of tan head formed on a dark brown, almost black body. The head held solidly.
Smells of roasted malt, tinge of burnt barley, black licorice, and dry barn hay.
Milky taste, toasted barley, strong black licorice and dark chocolate. Alcohol in the breath at the end.
Texture is creamy and smooth. Low carbonation.
Extremely well made and balanced. A dark profile without left up. The licorice might be too much for some. rikstar (2604) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 25, 2015
0,5l fles meegebracht uit gdansk. Zwart met een mooie bruine kraag. Smaak en geur zijn bovenal zoet, met caramel, chocolade en vanille, daarnaast ook wat muf. Zeker een fijn bier. MIBRomeo (2579) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 13, 2012

500 mL bottle. Likely the best imperial porter I’ve tried. I didn’t realize that any level of depth was possible with this style. It looks like all of the others, and the nose smells like Boston brown bread, like many of the others. But there is something that I can only describe as a molasses booziness in the flavour that I find very appealing. troopie (2497) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - MAY 12, 2010
Demi-litre bottle. Poured dark brown with thick beige head. Much lacing. Medium chocolate and roast aroma. Roast malt flavour with some more bittersweet chocolate notes. Malty finish, with caramelly notes. TheCametron (2480) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 29, 2015
Bottle. Hauled a few Baltic Porters back from Katowice last summer. The Poles know what they’re doing when it comes to these badboys. Pours dark Brown with a light brown head. Aroma of Brown sugar, stewed prunes and booze. Lots of roasted character. Warming booze. Delicious. arkurzynski (2460) - 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. armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 21, 2008
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.
