Appearance: Dark mahogany in colour with ruby highlights.

rodsquad (263) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - FEB 13, 2017
Bottle from Fountainhall Wines. Pours dark, dark ruby brown with a foamy light-tan head. Aromas of blackcurrants, melted butter, sweet coffee and a little fruit loaf. Flavours develop from smooth, dusty roasted malt flowing to sweet caramel building to a bitter coffee finish with a little spirity booze. It has a soft, glossy mouthfeel with an at-odds lively sparkle. I could imagine the carbonation may be a little lively for some but I thought this porter was fantastic. Beautifully glossy with gentle, flowing aromas and flavours.

Dark fruits , and caramel malt on the aroma. The taste is full of plummy fruits, with hints of bitterness on the finish .

mgajdaczewa (2177) - Katowice, POLAND - DEC 2, 2016
W aromacie karmel, czekolada, słodko, nuty ciemnych owoców. W smaku brakuje cielistości, jest karmel, słodycz, likier czekoladowy, straszny zamulacz bez treści. Pijałem lepsze bałtyki za 3 ziko z dyskontu, serio!

ElDesmadre (3627) - Mikołów, POLAND - DEC 1, 2016
Bottle. Caramel, sweet chocolate, lots of dried fruit, plums and berries. Roast&licorice finish, light coffeeish, oily and dry. The sweetness is more apparent in the aroma than in the flavour, so in the end the beer turns out to be well balanced. Very good.

datrael (507) - Kraków, POLAND - NOV 28, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2017 Bardzo konkretny imperial porter - w smaku i aromacie wyraźne nuty melanoidynowe, dużo kakao, paloności, dość słodkie, całkiem pijalne, bardzo smaczne. Naprawdę intesywne, przyjemne piwne doznanie. Dobry imperial porter, zahaczający smakiem i aromatem o portera bałtyckiego. Bardzo dobre piwo.

Bottle. Pours black with a thin tan rim. Scent is medium caramel and light brown sugar. Taste is medium dense Porter yeasts with brown sugar, toffee, some fruits, and even light whiskey cask properties. Finish is dry. A bit harsh. Very, very great.

bunget (994) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2016
Bottle. Clear cola body, medium mocha head with decent retention and lacing. Aroma of licorice and blackberry jam, caramel and leather, roasted nuts. Taste of caramel, nuts, blackberry jam and some woody notes. A tad too sweet.

19Michi38 (193) - Cracow, POLAND - AUG 9, 2016
Barwa piwa ciemnobrązowa, prawie czarna. Piana kremowa, drobna, dość obfita, po pewnym czasie spada do obręczy na szkle. Aromat mocno czekoladowy, pralinowy, razem z tym wyraźna śliwka, troszkę dalej kawa i paloność. W smaku znowu sporo czekolady, tym razem więcej kawy i paloności niż w zapachu, wszystko to ładnie zbalansowane. Goryczka średnia, posmak czekoladowy.
