4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is a damn good beer. Very dark pour from a bottle, with a big puffy tan head that left thick lacing. It had a strong sweet malty aroma and a deep chocolate taste with hints of raisin and anise and a dry finish that prevents it from being too cloying. Be careful, this beer’s got a wee bit of sting in it’s tail.
From Feb 2006
Poured from bottle(room temp) a pitch black with a smallish head of brown foam that dissipates slowly leaving a couple of "islands" in the middle of the glass.
The smell is of roasty sweet malt with some notes of chocolate.
The taste is sweet roasted malt and chocolate with some of the alcohol poking its head(no pun intended) through providing a nice warming sensation.
Bottom line: It's not as big and bold as the samples I had before the temporary halt of exportation but...it's still a great drop.
I think I'll save the other 2 bottles for later this year and see how things change.
Edit: May 29, 2006: I had to give 1 of my 2 remaining bottles a try and I have to say the flavour has evolved enough to make a difference. I note a more sweetish malt with anise tones and the body is bordering on syrupy...aging is doing fine so I'll keep my last bottle for say, the end of the year. gripweed57 (2862) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 28, 2017
From old tasting notes. Black, brown color. Thick, bubbly tan head. Sweet roasted malt nose. Intensely sweet treacle malt flavor dominates from start to finish. More like a sweet stout than a porter. saintbase (732) - Bydgoszcz, POLAND - MAY 18, 2017

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2017 Piwo leżakowane, pite dwa lata po terminie. warka do 17.11.2014
Piana drobna obfita, opada powoli, zdobi szkło. Aromat słodki, praliny, suszone owoce, bardzo przyjemny. Smak, uderza gładka struktura, słodki porter, dużo suszonych owoców, czekolada, karmel, melanoidyny, alkohol ułożony wyczuwalny jedynie w szlachetny sposób. Piwo ułożyło sie genialnie, Jednak Porter z tego browaru jest bardzo nie równy zdarzają się warki fatalne, tej należy się szacunek WOW. BeerRenter76 (1035) - Texas, USA - MAY 9, 2017
Originally rated on 1/14/2009. I sampled this one after sinebrychoff and i prefered the okocim. The aroma had alot of fruit notes along with the toasted malts, and chocolate. Flavor was similar to the aroma with the sweet fruit, chocolate, and coffee finish, very smooth despite the high alcohol content. Overall it was a very fine porter thats worth a try.
