Bottle. Black beer with a brown head. Great aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Flavor of heavily roasted malt, coffee, some chocolate, some alcohol and a nice bitter finish. Thick and full-bodied. Really good stuff.

imdownthepub (14555) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2009
Keg (yes keg), 500ml, at U Kakpra, Krakow. Dark brown to black with tan head. Big heavy beer, lots of fruit initially, then into a tarry, alohol, liquorice experience. There is always an underlying sweetness, I suppose this comes with the territory. Quite nasal in the close. Decent beer.

argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 22, 2002
Cola appearance. Sweet raisiny aroma, malty complex. Malty sweet flavor that turns to raisin on swallow. Bitterness throughout, but as complement. Very good beer.

Lubiere (13911) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2003
Nice moka head which collapses but maintains, leaving a lace behind. Nose of licorice and chocolate. Locrice and moka coffee in the mouth, with some residual sugar, rich mouthfeel with malt bitterness at the end. Wish they still had it (or the Okocim) at the LCBO. Thanks to CapFlu!

Drake (13738) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 1, 2010
500 mL bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a very dark brown color with a medium creamy brown head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, banana, caramel, chocolate and faint cola and smoke. The taste is roasted malts, chocolate, caramel, faint fruit notes. Smooth, creamy, medium bodied. I love these tasty baltic porters for less than $3 a piece.
