Dark brown and red around the edges with a thick tan head with aromas of roasted malts,chocolate, dough, and hops taste is metallic,and bitter the bottle could be old but I can’t see what all the raves are about on this one Mjollnir (415) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAY 4, 2010
330mL bottle. Pours a deep red-black with a light brown head that settles to a ring. Aroma of molasses, roasted coffee, wood and alcohol. Medium sweetness, lightly roasted and slightly hoppy flavour. Medium-full bodied, soft carbonation, a little sticky but with a drying finish. MarquisEXB (5) - New York, USA - MAY 3, 2010 does not count
Grabbed this for a cheap beer & was pleasantly surprised. Pours black with a frothy head. But has a nice sweet aftertaste. I noticed caramel, butterscotch, heavy cloying sweetness, slick feel, lively carbonation. sunnyridge (222) - USA - APR 29, 2010
Pours a dark brown with a nice 2 finger head that faded to a thin frothy head- a fairly aggressive pour on my part- Aroma of sweet coffee, caramel and light chocolate. Taste is sweet chocolate, coco and vanilla accents. Body is on the light side and there was something in the sweetness of everything that seemed weird to me. Nice bitterness detected in the finish. Overall very nice, I’d be delighted to have it again. If the price of their beers is indicative of the exchange rate, then I’ve gotta get to Poland. tennessejed420 (940) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 25, 2010
500 ml. bottle. Randomly decided to grab this because it was cheap and it looks like I happened upon a gem. Pours black with rust brown creme foamy head, looks pretty delicious. Aroma of cocoa powder, caramel, toffee, slight vanilla, roasted malt. Taste presents a very smooth, creamy mouth feel, the 9.5% completely hidden, until the warming sensation after a sip. Notes of roasted malt, subtle coffee / espresso tones, while retaining a sweetness from caramel / toffee. Bittersweet. For the price and 9.5% and quality, this is just a great selection. Highly recommended.

tjohoo best Polisch beer (at the moment), mild chocolate, sweet liquorice, oily feeling Cybercat (6160) - Georgia, USA - APR 24, 2010
Pours a deep, warm, opaque sable with a thick and fairly persistent light tan head. Aroma is rich, oily and smoky with an overtone of molasses and a hint of miso. Smoky flavor is oily with hints of molasses and just a touch of sweetness, as well as a bit of hop bitterness. Texture is quite fizzy, leaving behind a nice tingle. delnoche (516) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - APR 8, 2010
50cl bottle poured into a pint glass. Dark brown with ample creamy tan head. Beautiful. Aroma is sweet malt, lightly toasty, slight coffee. Flavor is a bit like burnt toast. Finish is quite bitter with a bit of alcohol burn at the end. Full bodied, highly carbonated. Not a bad brew. This was my first Baltic porter and it was a bit different than I expected. About the only similarity to the English variety is the color. neonblack (3) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 6, 2010 does not count
This porter has a dark-brown, almost black color and rich brownish-white foam that stays for a while. Tastes very spicy and malty and one can clearly notice the alcohol beyond the flavor. If compared to one or another porter from Finland it’s clearly more spicy and so far the best porter I know. nsquishee (641) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - APR 2, 2010
Dark and zesty malts. Chocolate, black licorice, unidentified sweetness...all things that come to my mind. This beer barely hides the 9.5%...not sure if I like that or not. It’s very filling, so good thing it does have that extra ABV. Not quite my thing, but I can respect the concept of loving this beer.
