In the 500 ml bottle. Pours dark black with a thick creamy beige head. Has a mild roasted coffee aroma with hints of licorice. The flavor pronounces strong alcohol but still supports a solid malt caramel thickness with plenty of roastedness and strong licorice. Fairly smooth and delicious.

Rerating this since my rating seems to have been deleted. Pours a very dark brown color almost black and topped by a small layer of tan colored foam. The foamy head settles quickly leaving a thin film and some sudsy lace behind. The aroma is typical of a baltic porter showing ample amount of caramel malt, figs, raisins, and other dark fruit with a hint of vanilla in there. The flavor follows suit with caramel and chocolate malt forming the base to go with the raisins, dark fruit, and hints of vanilla. There is a hint of roasted bitterness on the back end to balance things out. Medium bodied, smooth on the palate, with moderate carbonation. This is a solid porter.

Pours black with a tan head that holds up well. Slightly amber around the edges when held up to the light. Malty aroma. Dark roasty flavor, bittered nicely. Slight metallic after-taste, maybe result of the old-school grain smoking? Nice lingering roastyness (is that a word?) and alcohol warmth. Overall nice beer, the metallic taste is odd but I’ve gotten used to it and find this a very enjoyable beer.

(bottle) pours a pitch black colour with a slight ruby tinge and a quickly-diminishing light brown head. aroma of dark fruits, most noticeably cherries, some toasted malts and alcohol, with some light notes of char. flavour is a tad musty in the beginning, with lots of toasted malts later on and some surprising notes of banana over a long-lasting roasted-bitter finish. strong-bodied, not too sweet, with smooth carbonation.

Cola colored, a dark brown with minimal head. Very sweet chocolaty nose, roasted nutty palate, also very sweet. Very rich, good, at times seemed a bit thin though.

Creamy chocolate on the nose with roasty notes. Pours black with a thin off white head. Sweet and creamy with bitter chocolate notes and hints of coffee very nice. Excellent baltic porter.

Very interesting beer--thought it would be a thin, funky, decomposing-caramello-bar type of brew, as other Baltic Porters can be. Nope. 9.5%abv is a surprise [didn’t notice until reading the bottle halfway through] as the predominant tastes do not feature alcohol at all. French-roast coffee, high-cacao chocolate, and super-toasted hops all feature, leading to a somewhat intense and not entirely pleasurable Ralph Wiggum ("tastes like burning!") finish. Very different from the average Polish brew, worth seeking out (w.)

this reminded me a lot of Lion stout. sweet and a little bit thin. the 16.9oz bomber was only $4 at a local polish restaurant, and i got to drink it around a bunch of 60-70 year old pollocks which was an added bonus.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2013 Flavour hit - sweet with a real punch of coffee, dark fruits and licorice. Good mouthfeel with creamy medium body that’s perfect for a porter. Bittersweet finish that lingers.

NosirIwont (2606) - Husum, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2010
Bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown with a big, fluffy light brown head. Nice lacing. Dusty, roasted aroma with notes of blue cheese and dark fruits; the latter taking over as it warms. Flavour is sweet, a bit roasted and with lots of dark fruits; rather cloying really. Sweet, roasted finish; a tad bitter. Dried fruits and a bit of liquorice. Overall quite sweet cloying for a Baltic porter, but okay still, if nothing special. 04.06.10.
