Kinz (3737) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - AUG 15, 2008
Pleasantly surprised to discover that I had never tried this. Very dark brown heading into black, with a slight tan head that fades into a ring, quite clear. Aroma is caramel, slight molasses, faint dark fruit, a touch of treacle, coffee, and maybe a bit of grainy soy, if that makes any sense. The aroma is not intense, but definitely complex. Flavor is surprisingly much more simplistic, with caramel and molasses accented malts dominating, moving into a powdered cocoa finish with some very faint dark fruit and soy notes. Good.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 13, 2008
Pours a dark brown color with a small of white head. Nose is malty, vinous, caramel, dark fruits, and touch grassiness. Initial taste of soy sauce, caramel, cocoa and coffee. Mid palate diplays some vinous notes. Finishing slightly grassy with cocoa and malt undertones. Light to medium body. Good head retention. Palate duration is average. Alcohol is well hidden for 9.5%. The porter is lacking flavor qualities and aroma. Overall interesting, but nothing special.

Bottle courtesy of and shared with heavy who brought it from Poland (thanks!)
Aah, finally got to try this little beauty. Poured a dark brown body with a small off white head going tan. Dark malty nose, weak alcohol presence, caramel. Taste starts The taste starts with coffee and soy sauce (actually pleasant here) and a lovely sweet malt presence. Raisins, fine graininess, even some hop, dust. A pleasant, sweet porter. Definitely a great beer and one of the best macro beers in the world. I can actually buy the blurb that they’re using a recipe from 1881!

Oscbert (1263) - Lincoln, California, USA - AUG 8, 2008
~Pours pitch black with big brown creamy head. ~Sweet chocolate and mild coffee aroma. As well as roasted malts and some dark fruits like raisins and plums. ~Seems like mine has been sitting in the bottle awhile. Glass bottle flavor. I can taste roasted malts coffee and chocolate. Smooth flavor. I am not going t hinder it because of the glassy taste. I can tell it’s a good tasting beer. ~Rich creamy feel with bitter chocolate after taste. ~This is a little stronger than the Porters that i am used to. Reminds me of a good strong stout. I really enjoyed this beer. I wish it was easier to find and I could get it fresher. ~

BeerGestapo (754) - Mt.Joy, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2008
(POLAND) Pours a dark brown color with a nice foamy tan head. Aroma is of dark malts, chocolate, and licorice. The taste is smoky, with chocolate, caramel, and some dark fruits. The mouthfeel is robust, with a slight alcohol burn that finishes warm !!! This porter will sneak up on you with it’s 9.5 % :)

PolakPorter (83) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 30, 2008
500ml bottle to glass. Pours deep red/brown/pepsi/black. Aroma of dark fruit, malt, heaven and pixy dust with a hint of tears from God Himself. Taste is initially sweet, rounded off by a roasted dark chocolate/caramel/blackberry/smokey/cherry/crazy finish. Alcohol is present, which in this case, is a good thing. It helps magnify the many virtues of this amazing beer. It drinks equally well on a hot July night or in the dead of winter. Possibly the perfect porter. Oh yeah, AND it f*cks you up fast! Best bang for your buck in the world! Thanks Poland!!

Boutip (6026) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2008
Bottle courtesy of secret santa: Poured a deep red color ale with a light pink color head with average retention and minimal lacing. Aroma consists of syrupy cherry with too much of sweet cloying notes. Taste is also dominated by the extremely sweet cherry syrup with some very light malt notes. Full cloying sweet body with some average carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Too sweet for my taste buds and too much of the fake cherry syrup comes out for me to enjoy this beer.
