On tap at House of Beer, Krakow, two years ago. Black with short lasting creamy head. Chocolate, alcohol, blueberry’s and prunes. Quite sweet, bitter chocolate, dry finish. Full body, medium to high carbonation. A bit dry but otherwise excellent! bobroman (1166) - Torun, POLAND - NOV 24, 2013
Good chocolate aroma. Small baige head, disappearing after a while. Dark brown body. Very good bitter chocolate taste. Pleasant sweet aftertaste. ectuohy27 (1154) - ESTONIA - JUL 9, 2016
Nice find in Central Jersey...good and rounded but surprisingly hoppy and asringent for the style (doesn’t entirely reduce the impact of the traditional BP cloying-toffee sweetness, but does make it a bit less prominent.) Not bad overall arsol (1151) - NORWAY - OCT 26, 2013
Svart med lys brunt skum. Lukter karamell, moden frukt og sjokolade. Lukter godt med alkohol også. Smak av kaffe og sjokolade. Lang ettersmak. Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2011 16.9oz bottle, and the first (new) beer of 2011. Pours very deep reddish brown, opaque in the glass, with a 3-finger frothy brown head. Aromas of toffee, caramel, brown sugar and sugar cane, hazelnut, and vanilla. Flavors of toffee, caramel, sugar cane, mocha/latte, and milk chocolate. Low carbonation, creamy and smooth, and warming; the alcohol is well-hidden. This was quite the tasty beer, and for $2.50/bottle, a great deal; I’ll be getting a few more of these.

Ruby tres sombre, peu de carbo, collet fuyant.
Aromes caramel bien marqués, chocolat.
Texture moyenne, toujours beaucoup sur le caramel. Me fais plus penser a une doppelbock qu’à une imperial porter. ArtificialCyst (1140) - Szczecin, POLAND - OCT 25, 2016

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. Cantabrian (1114) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 5, 2012
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. Piw (1108) - Rüsselsheim, GERMANY - APR 30, 2017
