Znakomity, aromatyczny i bardzo g?adki Porter! Doskonale czekoladowy i u?o?ony. Alkohol dobrze ukryty. Czarny, niemal nieprzejrzysty z do?? szybko opadaj?ca pian?. Znakomicie pijalny, aksamitny prawie oleisty!!! Polecam!!! perpetuitas (29) - Scarborough, Maine, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Awesome example of the style!
Big, bold and smooth just like the style says. I like the deep flavors that come with this one and it’s amazingly quaffable for such high abv. sunnyridge (222) - USA - APR 6, 2010
My favorite baltic porter- smutty nose nailed this beer. Delightful jet black color, thick, heavy body. nose has lots of dried fruit and a slight tart quality behind the big toasted malt. The taste has big chocolate, raisin, and toasted malt. sanborn13 (7) - Hebron, Maine, USA - FEB 18, 2012 does not count
Appearance is exactly what a porter should be, black with a thick tan head which will last as long as it takes you to drink this beer. Aroma is plentiful with some roasted malts, hints of chocolate, caramel and even some raisin, very slight alcohol smell but not overpowering. Taste is slightly sweet to start but very complex and extremely well balanced. Something for everyone in this; malts, slightly hoppy, chocolate, raisin, coffee but no one flavor stands out. Even ay 9% ABV this is smooth, easy to drink and the 22 oz bomber was gone within the hour.

Draft at Jerry’s. Black with chocolate shake head / Rich, acidic nose of tobacco, coffee, and lemon / Full body, chewy and lightly sweet, with excellent balance and dry finish / Winey, earthy flavors of dark roast coffee, tobacco, chocolate, prunes, lemon, orange, and oak / Superb. Possibly my best porter ever? digrod (138) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Black pour with great foamy head. Smells of raisins/prunes and some licorice. Tastes of dark chocolate, black licorice, and sweet prunes. Finishes with burnt molasses and cocao. drmet (952) - Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, GERMANY - FEB 29, 2016

Wow! poured jet black with a nice tan frothy head. Notes of coffee,mocha,and roasted malt. Coats your mouth and is very drinkable. Much better then Victorys baltic imo. Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2008
Draft at Cap Ale House, post 10k recovery beer. Pours black with a creamy tan head, very nice. Aroma is a great blend of coffee accented malts and dark fruits. Flavor is an almost exact match, but just exquisitely balanced, luscious, and full. This is absolutely fantastic, an amazingly good beer.
