UPDATED: DEC 2, 2012 This is a Baltic porter, which means it differs from London porters in that lager yeast and lagering are used in its process instead of Ale yeast and warm fermenting with soft water. There is generally less hop astringency in the balance . They also tend to be a bit sweeter with the hops being more subdued. The results are wonderful! Like blending the sweet complexity of a strong dark dopple bock with the wonderful coffee-cocoa flavors of an London porter. This is probably the best commercial Baltic porter I have ever tasted and the "imperial" strength and thick body is excellent. OKOCIM has the best commercial representation of the Baltic style porter hands down bar none. It has a rich mouth feel and luxurious chocolate-malty, spicy, licorice taste, not to mention a thick meringue-like mocha head that caps the drink to keep all those wonderful tastes intact until the class is drained. UPDATE Dec.2012....... just finished some bottles of this I had put down in 2007. Other than a nice "rounding" that the beer has taken on, it is pretty well as rich choclatey and warming as it was when young - what a great brew.

The smell is good but not exceptional the usual roasted malts prevail. Ah forgot this beer is one of the most handsome brews I have ever seen!..deep deep brown essentially black beer with a huge tan frothy head which declines into a marginal lace head ..leaving it all down the glass. The taste? very nice indeed..I have come to love these Polish Porters . Toffee, roasted malts, dark chocolate, blackcurrants..liquorice its all here one after the other in a parade of the taste buds ..fantastic. The mouthfeel is perfection creamy yet strong..just indesribable really. A delectable beer and so very drinkable for such an ABV I have found the beer of the Gods and its Baltic Porters..beautiful

Fantastic looking, very dark brown body with glistening bubbles and ruby highlights, perhaps 70% opaque. Head is big and loose with a light tan color. Smells of molasses, honey, wet grass and alcohol. Texture is silky smooth on the tongue. Taste starts honey sweet with a huge malt flavor, changing to a decisively bitter hop flavor (both grapefruit and coffee). Aftertaste is drying with bitterness and alcohol. An above average porter.

Basic brown color. Sweet, peaty, port-y, bitter arma (borders on smelling like a barley wine). Alcohol aroma and alcohol flavor. Tastes a lot like a barley wine, too. Sweet, malty, and rich.

Quite a nice porter. Aroma was multi layered with rich roasted malt, dark chocolate and a strong whif of alcohol. Appearance was nice with big foamy light brown head. Flavor followed up the aroma and compares with some good imperial stouts. Very good.

Pours a very dark and thick brown color with a lasting, light brown head. The aroma is sweet and thick. Raisins, alcohol, dark chocolate, bitter coffee and plum dominate throughout. Again, the flavor is very sweet and thick. Beautiful combinations of dark fruits, raisins, chocolate, liquor and coffee. A very light, pleasant hop finish rounds out this marvelous beer. Extremely tasty, thick, chewy, and delectable, I'm really beginning to enjoy this style.

Very dark beer with a thin tan head and a dark sugar nose. I tasted vanilla, coffee and bitter chocolate in here. Very dry finish.

Big dark foamy head that is taking forever to die down.Dark opaque color.Roasted malt aroma,with a slight coffee aroma including some raisin possibly.Very roasted flavor dark as hell malty with a slight alcohol flavor making it's presence known.very little raisin flavor but a huge coffee flavor hits you hard.Slightly thick mouth feel some what syrupy,but not bad.The after tase is all coffee and roasted malt very bitter IMO. I think the Sinebrychoff is a much better brew then this stuff but the russkies deserve a place as well in the beer world and this isn't bad at all.
