UPDATED: JAN 14, 2016 Barwa szlachetna, ciemna, piana szybko opada. Zapach przyjemny, delikatny jak na portera. W smaku też ciężko wychwycić te 21 plato, nie za słodkie, nie za wytrawne. Piwo na plus ale są lepsze polskie portery bałtyckie. Minus za to, że na etykiecie nie ma wzmianki że jest to porter bałtycki.

Bottle at LCRBM2. The most bitter porter ive had. Lots of chocolate, coffee and roasted malt. Very nice!

Pours a near black colour with a small, but sturdy tan head. The aroma is strait forward, with plenty of nuts, caramel, vanilla and dried fruits. The flavour is nice mid-palate, but an atringent bitterness, like that of bakers cocoa and aluminum. It is possible I may be drinking an infected bottle, because the finish is bitter like penicilin. Flavours of rich caramel, dark fruits and roasted malt are trampled by an offensive, harshly bitter finish. The mouthfeel is velvety smooth and perfectly carbonated, making it quite drinkable despite the overly bitter finish and the booze is well hidden. I think I need to try this one again.

Pours black medium brown head. Mild aroma of caramel and roasted malts. Medium sweet chocolatey flavor. Medium body, higher than expected carbonation, strong alcohol taste in the finish, somewhat metallic. Baltic porters are usually a bit too much for me but this one isnt bad.

Black ruby. 8deg allows strong malt & chocolate notes through, with a little roasty and smoke character evident. Nice hop/roasted malt balance. Very good Baltic Porter

Pours very deep red--almost black--with a large tan head. Excellent molasses, caramel, and nut aroma, with a touch of herbal hoppiness that blends perfectly. Theres some spice in there, as well; I almost want to say nutmeg. Classic porter flavor--chocolate, caramel, molasses--with a little alcohol bite at the end to remind you that this is Baltic. None of the flavors are overdone, and its not overly roasty. Damn fine beer.

geophagus (664) - Lubin, POLAND - AUG 2, 2012
Black, untransparent color, nice small brown head. Aroma roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, alcohol, plums. Taste roasted malt, chocolate. Small metalic and alcoholic flavor. Good balance between sweetnes and bitternes. Full body, oily texture, small carbonation. Long finish with bitternes from roasty malt. Good availability in polish shops.

Delirium (663) - Falmouth, Cornwall, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2006 Bottle. Pours black with a medium brown head. Aroma is sweet and roasty, with dark fruits and malt and a hint of vanilla. Flavor is semi-sweet with dark fruits, coffee, chocolate, hint of vanilla, and roasted malt. The sweet and roasted flavors complement each other excellently, capped by a bitter-chocolate and slightly tart finish. Full body; alcohol not noticeable; smooth mouthfeel. This is an excellent beer, and a bargain at $2/500mL.

Pours thick and opaque black producing a dense, tight, long lasting tan head. Luscious aromas of dark chocolate, figs, raisins, molasses, roasted malts, along with some faint espresso coffee beans and smokiness. Mouthfeel is creamy smooth and full yet shows a moderate level of crisp carbonation which allows the flavors to explode on the tongue. Initial flavor leans toward the sweet side showing off notes of dried dark fruits, licorice, molasses, dark rum and burnt caramel. Mid to late palate transcends into a moderate roasted malt/charcoal, dark chocolate, espresso bean bitterness with just the slightest hint of alcohol. Itll sneak up on you quick since it is well hidden. Probably the best Baltic Porter on the market here in the U.S.
