A porter that will put hair on your chest. Slightly but not very boozy. Strong porter notes. Thinner than a stout; well labeled. rickgordon (3878) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2005 Bottled. Dark brown. Attractive, intensive aroma of syrup, licorice, dried fruits and a hint of coffee. Powerful flavor - syrup, coffee and sweetish with not so much alcohol feel, and a hint of fruitiness. Notes of diacetyl as well in flavour, but I can take it. pilsnerrogge (3051) - Finspång, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2003
Dark brown. Medium head. Creamy, smooth liquorice-aroma. Sweet, roasty flavour. The alcohol gives it some bitterness in the finish. Very strong and very drinkable; might be dangerous ;o) rlgk (18843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 4, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2005 Bottle, stored for about 10 months. Dark amber, beautiful head. Smotth malty aroma with toffee, milk and chocolate. Just as malty flavor, and with a wonderful body. This beer changed alot to the better while being stored... NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 9, 2005
Raisins, walnut, chocolate and some dried cherries in the aroma. Reddish brown/black with a frothy, but thin head. Huge raisin blast in the fore followed by another huge blast of black licorice and then mild marzipan notes in the middle. Finish wafts on through with dry black licorice notes and a chalky raisin/licorice/burnt aftertaste. This is very nice.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2007 Bottle- strong sweet nose. Strong sweet malty flavor. Develops increased character as temperature increases. It’s over the top sweetness...yeah...pretty much...

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2011 roasted aroma, like dark rye and baking chocolate. fiercely dark. great rich flavor and consistency. true porter style. 103011 Dadgum, it’s been 4 years? I now find this beer to be a great standby, excellent value and definitive for the style. Soft burnt grain and dry baking cocoa. Jet black, creamy tan head. Rich and thick, mocha body, suberb. Ticked up from a 3.9 to a 4.2 after having tried several other Baltic Porters. How does this make it from Poland to Seattle and still be under three bucks on the shelf? jgb9348 (6732) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 2008
Deep dark brown coloured body with ruby highlights and a deep dense tan head - perfect for the style! Aroma of a good baltic - meaty, mushroomy, caramel, roasted malt, coffee and a touch of chocolate show very well. Medium-bodied; Strong roasted malt flavours with a good backbone of chocolate and the strong savoury flavours come out as well - with some subtle alcohol near the end. Aftertaste shows some complexity with a tiny bit of spice, caramel and mostly mild tastes. Overall, a damn good baltic, rivaling even Zywiec, also from Poland. When I first saw this one, I wanted to try it, and I’m definitely glad I did! Perhaps this aged nicely in the bottle, but I really liked this and would recommend it to anyone! I sampled this 500 mL bottle purchased about two years ago from Whole Foods in Portland (Downtown), Oregon, drunk on 05-August-2008. tfontana (1262) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 9, 2016
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Manchester Wine & Liquors. Appearance is clear mahogany with light sparkle, 2-finger width light brown foamy head with decent retention and sudsy lacing. Aroma is dark chocolate, dark toast, hints of coffee and dark fruit. Taste is dark chocolate, dark fruit, mild European hop bitterness. Palate is full bodied with decadent creamy texture, soft carbonation and dark fruit/dark chocolate finish with late warmth in stomach. Overall, a nice beer that is sweet but not cloying and a silky mouthfeel. Nice.
