Rich dark smokey appearance and aroma. Thin yellow small bead head that stays. Tastes of licorice with some notes of coffee. Wow, this is enjoyable! Some slight alcohol warmth, but almost unnoticable. These Eastern European strong porters are always quite good; much better than their pilsner attempts.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - JUL 11, 2005
Very dark mahogany color with a weak head and scant lacing. Roasty chocolate, dried fruit and teriaki sauce aroma. Full bodied with coffee, toffee, chocolate and raisins in the flavor, and although I couldnt taste the alcohol I could feel some warmth as it was going down. Seemed to get sweeter into the smooth medium finish. I hope to have a few of these around next winter. From what I remember of the old version this is just as tasty if not better, and certainly a whole lot fresher.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 26, 2005
Bottle acquired from LP, many thanks for the surprise!

Pours a deep brown hue with amber highlights topped by a fading frothy tan head and good lace in my other Expedition snifter. The nose detected a heavy amount of caramelized and bready malts, molasses sugar, rich ripened plum and currant, dusty and earthy yeast esters, and a walnut vapor is to be found as well. The taste has equal balance of fruit, sweet malts, and flowery bitters with a bready and nutty finish. The undertone of bourbon barrel like phenols add a wonderful complexity to the brew. My one fault of this beer is that it becomes a bit too cloy after a while as the constant assault of sweetness overwhelms the palate by bottles end. The feel is sticky and lush yet you understand quickly not to pound this down for it is a powerful brew. A well made Baltic and worthy of any stoutie. Welcome back Okocim Porter, may we meet again.

Ernest (7602) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 25, 2005
2005 bottle (8.3%). Head is small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, molasses, toasted bread), lightly hoppy (herbs). Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. The revived Okocim Porter arrives at last. Reminds me more of a strong brown ale or strong German dunkel than a porter. Very sweet. Not impressed.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUN 21, 2005
Thank you, Okocim, for bringing this one out of retirement. It pours a deep, dark brown with ruby highlights and has a short-lived brown head that begins a one-fingered and bubbly. The aroma is malty with raisins & prunes, chocolate, a touch of coffee, and just a hint of its 8.3% ABV. Sweet and wine-like, its got chewy caramel & toffee malt flavors with milk chocolate, some burnt coffee, and the heat of alcohol. Its got a long dry finish. I will be drinking more of this.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 13, 2005
Bottle: Black black black, very little light at the edges, moderate rocky light beige head, sticky lacing. Sweet figgish/pruney nose, apple skin, with definite notes of milk chocolate and subtle coffee. Extremely sweet on the tongue, light dark pitted fruit, chocolatey, and just oh so delicious. Body and mouthfeel arent very big, but it is very smooth and silky. This brew had been retired, but since its rebrewing I gotta say I think its stepped up a notch. Simply delicious!

Lubiere (13566) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2004
1999 bottle from Dumdum! Deep dark brown with a raisinous aroma and traces of molasses. Sweet taste of malts with lightly acidic fruity taste. Rich creamy body. Unfortunate demise!

CapFlu (5123) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 20, 2004
(500ml bottle) Vintage 1999. Pours near headless with a opaque body. Nose of molasses, prunes and figs. Oily texture. Smooth and thick palate with a creamy molasses finish. Very good. Un gros merci a DumDum.

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - NOV 12, 2004
Outstanding beer with a very dark brown color and a huge creamy head. A real powerbooster of chocolaty and roasted aromas. Very complex nose with hints of Stroh Rhum, coffee, licorice, caramel, tar and black tea. Smooth and decadently rich taste with again very complex aromas. It has nice complex hints of Dried plums, Baba ou Rhum, sultanas, raisins, black chocolate, black tea, caramel and a chicore like bitterness. This is a unique beer that is rich and with a great finesse.

nHeavenNoBier (2) - USA - OCT 18, 2004 does not count
I agree with Pigfoot, it was one heavenly brew, it reminded me of Samuel Smiths Imperial Stout. Had a different name at the NYC Beer on the Pier fest. It was the tastiest brew I sampled Saturday. Wish I could remember the name of the porter (but after a couple of hours of tasting, lucky I could even remember my own name!), but is brewed by OK and is problably the same. One great stout/porter! Hope it becomes available in my area.
