Now here we have a remarkable beer. Abundance of character. all of the clasic baltic porter hallmarks coupled with individualistics such as roastiness, darker grains and perhaps a special yeastoid. Poured with a tan head, lots of lace and pitch black color. Opaque. perfect balance between bitter and sweet, with enough body to compliment the works. Bravo. almost robust enough to be too much of a beer for the session lablel. tough it out bro.

Thin brown head with a deep black body. Lots of chocolate/caramel malts in here. My only complaint is the heavy aroma of alcohol that overpowers some of the malt flavors.

500ml bottle from premier gourmet. pours black with a lovely tan head. i couldnt ask for a better looking porter. aromas are thin. dark fruit and some coffee. flavours are similar with a bitter/tart/tin finish. not very enjoyable but not quite a drain pour. ill try again if it becomes availible locally other then that no way!

What a pleasant suprise. I went into a small store in Krakow to but all of the different brands of Polish beer I could find to rate. This was the standout although I fell in love with most of the Polish brands. This is just so roasty and rich. One of the best Porters I have ever had.

Shared by Fidel, pours deep brown with a finger thick cream colored head. Nose is rich with mainly chocolate and a bit of caramel. The flavor is more complex with those influences along with molasses, fruit, and a slight touch of soy sauce in the finish. Bright and full mouth feel.

charlotte (5206) - rdovre, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2008
Pitch black with large beige head.Sweet aroma of rosted malt and coffee really strong and vinous,feels metallic with flavor of vanilla and has a light bitter finish.Not my type of Porter.

Bottle. Pours near black with a tan head and nice lacing. Sweet fruity aroma with chocolate and vanilla. Full, chewy body. Roasted flavor with coffee, vanilla, and fruit. Nice lasting bitterness.

ajm (1072) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 18, 2008
Complex. A leaden weight of a beer with a striking absence of aroma. The copper, malt, dry milk chocolate and moss flavors combine in such a way as to make me think the resultant twanginess is due to an ingredient of blood. A very unusual beer that I will remember long enough to never need to drink again.

heavy (2806) - Split, CROATIA - AUG 16, 2008
11/08 0.33 l bottle from a gas station near Warszawa. I was so glad to find this one...it is probably the absolute macro king of beers in Poland, just like Tomislav in Croatia and they’re of the same style so let’s see...poured clear dark brown body with medium brownish head. Malty nose, dominated by coffee, some faint caramel and other fruity spices like blueberries. Flavor is also mostly coffeeish, but in very pleasant way, not too complex but nice. Very similar to our Tomislav, its more coffeish variant. Full body, pleasant sweetish finish. Very nice for sure.
