4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2013 I have no problem with the label statement about this being the quintessential flavour of black beer. Wow, what a ride! The beer is dark brown, black as a shoe on the glass, with a light tan head - a persistent one - breathing nice aromas of plums, dates, roasted malts and Lebkuchen. Certainly there’s a peaty smokiness that it’s more evident on the woody taste, among a fabulous complexity of chocolates, brown sugars, Lübeck treats, dried fruits, treacle, cross-buns, sweet soy sauce and a nice vegemite bitterness, never any offensive, but which balances perfectly any overwhelming pain from the range of sweet challenges to the tastebuds. The beer is full bodied, slick and oily, post soviet sexy, insinuating, incorporating the Balticness in all its character, as a good Polish porter should. I could bathe in it and get turned on, no shame about it.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark black with a creamy frothy head. Aromas of big toffee, caramel, roasted malt, and biscuit. Flavors of toffee, caramel, bread, slight nuttiness, and light biscuit. Medium sweet. No alcohol noticed. Light bitterness. Light roasted malt/toffee finish. Rated while watching the X-files. Mostly a dominant erosion of toffee maltyness which reminds mush of a bock.

Dark-chocolate brown with a giant cappuccino head. Oh, if only there were as many slang terms for parts of beer as there are for parts of the human body, then all my reviews would sound quite the same! Flavor is saucy mole, sweet chocolate caramel syrup. Aroma is rich and fills the nostrils. Medium body. Light touch of spiced hop bitterness, like a dab of whipped cream. Smooth. Great BP!

Udany porter. Aromat fajny, ale słaby. W smaku natomiast czysta przyjemność. Jeżeli miałoby być jakimś posiłkiem byłoby deserem. Polecam.

Caramel, chocolate, toast in aroma. Pours dark brown with beige head. Taste is sweet with lots of caramel, some chocolate and cappuccino. Low bitter finish, alcohol well hidden. Overall not bad but somewhat tiring and boring.
