Strong yeasty and coffee aroma, burnt caramel flavours with a bitter lingering aftertaste. I like it a lot!

Bottle. Aroma- dark chocolate, coffee and dark bread. Balanced, but could be more intensive. Dark brown, clear with beige, great head and good-looking lacing. Taste- very pleasant, dark chocolate and delicate roastyness and coffee in the aftertaste. Medium dry, well-rounded. Full-bodied, with medium-low carbonation. No iron notes (good job Żywiec). Its a classy Baltic Porter, but I would like it to be more distinct.

Butelka 0,33l. Ciemnobrązowe, prawie nieprzejrzyste, choć z refleksami. Piana ciemnoberzowa, dość wysoka, ale nietrwała, szybko opada do obwdki i cienkiej warstewki nad grawerem. Po otwarciu butelki uderza wyraźny aromat suszonej śliwki, a zaraz po nim gorzkiej czekolady. Czuć też lekko nuty alkoholowe. W miarę ogrzewania suszona śliwka zaczyna trochę przypominać śliwkę podwędzaną. Piwo raczej oleiste, pełne, w smaku słodkie i nie tak złożone jak w aromacie. Wyraźna goryczka, nie tylko chmielowa, czuć w niej też paloność, jest wzmacniana przez alkohol. I to właśnie ta goryczka nie przypadła mi do gustu i obniża oglną notę.

Czekolada, pumpernikiel i niestety dużo alkoholu. Średnio wytrawne i dosyć kwaśne z nieprzyjemnym posmakiem.

W biedronce w dobrej cenie. Piwo ma dobry wygląd. Ciemne. Smoliste. Berzowa, kawowa piana. Do końca pozostaje w postaci wysepek na powierzchni i kręgw na krawędzi. W zapachu na pierwszym planie słody charakterystyczne dla koncernowych lagerw. Delikatnie mokry karton. Zapachy te ulatują z każdym łykiem i do głosu dochodzi kawa. W smaku przede wszystkim alkohol. Agresywny i wyraźny. Jest pewna wytrawność i goryczka i kawa.

2015 BJCP Category: 9C Baltic Porter

AROMA: Rich malty sweetness with notes of toffee, currant, licorice and chocolate. A faint Port-like quality. No hops or overt booziness. 11/12

APPEARANCE: Seemingly black but actually deep brown with mahogany highlights. Clear. Very large dark tan persistent froth. 3/3

FLAVOR: Deep, elegant sweetness of dark malt (not roasted per se) with confectionery/dark fruit flavors but at no point cloying. Distinct flavors of toffee, black licorice, dark chocolate, and a slight cherry or black currant flavor. Fresh bottle has a medium-high hop bitterness and slight earthy/spicy flavor. 18/20

MOUTHFEEL: Full-bodied with a smooth, slightly creamy texture. CO2 is medium. Alcohol presence (taste and warmth) is remarkably restrained. 5/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Pretty much a perfect beer for the style. Style guidelines were almost assuredly written based on this brew. 10/10

TOTAL SCORE: 47/50

Aromat śliwki, słodko-gorzkiej czekolady, lecz niestety rwnież metaliczności. Kolor ciemny z rubinowymi przebłyskami. Piana szybko opadająca. W posmaku przeważają praliny oraz kawa. Odczucie przyjemne, choć wyraźnie wyczuwalny alkohol przykrywający goryczkę. Nasycenie średnie. Warto sprbować, zważywszy, że cena zachęca.

DonGregorio (115) - POLAND - DEC 18, 2016
Bottle, best before October 2017, probably just few months old. Pours very dark brown with small, but mostly lasting beige head. Aroma of plums, dark fruits and chocolate. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and light bitter, lots of plums, dried fruits, chocolate. Bitter finish with a bit of alcohol, leaving bitter chocolate aftertaste. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Tasty baltic porter, but I see room for improvement - it needs some aging.

SonOfAnarchy (227) - ST HELENA - DEC 18, 2016
Pours jet black with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, plum, dark bread, alcohol. Taste is medium sweet, medium bitterness. Flavors of plum, dark bread, dark chocolate, some coffee, alcohol. High robust body, thick texture, medium carbonation. Tried it many times and while it may not be the best Baltic porter available in Poland, its definitely one of the most consistent brews.
