Piwo otworzone po 12 latach. Bardzo bogaty aromat owoców, śliwki, bzu czarnego, czekolady, pełny i złożony, słodki. Smak wyśmienity, mocno zaznaczone praliny ze śliwką plus suszone, słodkie, ciemne owoce. Świetnie ułożone i przepyszny trunek. beton (618) - Tarnobrzeg, POLAND - FEB 22, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2017 Batch 20.7.2008. Incredibly it worked out. Personally, I confirm the fact that beer is unique, it is not just a myth. After eight years of alcohol undetectable. Velvety texture, the flavor is dominated by notes of dark fruit, espresso, dark chocolate. The aroma is mainly walnuts, plums and soy sauce. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

brown with ruby highlights, sweet chocolate malt aroma, huge chocolate malt flavor,a lot of sweet carmelized sugars, slight burnt character, hint of tartness, lots of complexity
Aroma: 6/10; Appearance: 5/10; Flavor: 6/10; Palate: 5/10; Overall: 13/20
The score was calculated based upon the notes and an old scoring system.
Clearish medium to deep brown-garnet, fairly laced light beige head tops it all. Rich, thick malts make up an obviously sweet aroma directing molasses and lightly anisey and earthy notes to every receptor. The sweetness gains in intensity on the palate, developing more brown sugar character that fades into dark chocolate roastiness toward the finish, cakey and faintly tart. Full bodied, invigorating mouthfeel, with supporting fair carbonation. In almost every facet, this is everything I want a Baltic porter to be, if anything, more fruitiness would make it close to perfection. A mouthful of yummy malt and authenticity. Thank you Jeppe! tiggmtl (4545) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 22, 2005
Nutty, chocolatey, powdered cocoa, roasty aroma. Clear dark ruby brown with a low tan head that recedes to partial cover. Cocoa and roasty bitterness are incredibly well balanced with some hints of dried fruit and suggestions of alcoholic strength. Medium body with somewhat low carbonation. Bottle sampled at Barry’s housewarming tasting.

Pours a clear reddish brown color with a thin light brown head. Excellent aroma and flavor of thick, round, rich malt, molasses and chocolate. The body is light with a refined, vinous texture and medium carbonation. This is as good as a baltic porter gets, polish baltic porters seem to all have a high quality.

Classy berries wrapped in roastiness. Dry vinosity hugging sweet molasses. Elaborate yet sagacious.
Fruitiness is marvelously blended into a cream with the roasted malt flavor and bitterness. Some dryness ensues, but caramel maltiness is prolonged into a confident position. A baltic porter of the utmost refinement.
A castle on a cliff, piercing the fog.
500 ml bottle (2004, if I’m reading the tiny print on the back correctly) shared with MartinT, tiggmtl, Rastacouere, beerbuzzmontreal and Yowie. Dark dried bloody color as it pours, fairly thick with just a bit of tan head, lasting...lots of dark chocolate and dried fruits, bit of port and perhaps tobacco in the strong nose...fairly light on the palate, effervescent even, but the chocolaty, flavorful body and raisiny fruitiness works well with the velvety softness...thanks so much whoever brought this!

Pours a transparent dark brown with a thick, frothy light tan head. Aroma is sweet caramely and malty with some Baltic lager yeast character and a dry roasty, lightly smoked presence. Body is thick, robust and malty with nice hints of dark fruit and good complexity. Also has some milk chocolatey flavor and noble hoppy bitterness. Well balanced, thick, sweet and enjoyable. Many thanks to SpringsLicker for sharing! SpringsLicker (3638) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 23, 2005
Thanks to Madsberg for this sending this fine brew.
Deep ruby highlights in a dark brown body that supports a tan head.
This one is different in a good way from the other Baltics I’ve had.
Light malt aroma with some chocolate too.
The flavor is somewhat complex, some soy sauce, roast malts and caramel sweetness that avoids being cloying in any way. The alcohol is completely hidden. Interesting beer.
