UPDATED: DEC 7, 2007 Bottle from BevMo. Pitch black as it is poured into my shaker. Sudbued roasted malty aroma. Full flavored maltiness with a slightly sweet flavor as well. Finish is very roasty. Smooth mouthfeel, quite creamy. A little alcohol is noticable. Great deal at $2 for 16.9oz.

500 mL bottle shared with ebone1988. The pour is a medium black with a light tan colored head and a good bit of lace as it falls. The aroma is quite rosty and chocolatey. There is a bitterness to it, but its not too bad for what I was expecting. Its a pretty nice balance for a foreign porter. The flavor is really dry. There is a nice roast and a great chocolate presence. The dryness is a little bit of a hit, as well as the milkiness present. The roast and chocolate offer a good backbone, but its just a hint too dry. The mouth feel is lighter and good with a softer carbonation and a lingeringly dry and roasty chocolate finish. Not too bad. This is a little bit of a surprise in a good sense.

WarMan04 (213) - Bydgoszcz, POLAND - AUG 5, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2016 Aromat alkoholowy, lekko owocowy, czekoladowy, palony. Barwa czarna, piana w kolorze ecru do beżowego, mało obfita jak to w tym stylu. W smaku, czekolada, palona kawa, nuta alkoholowa. Pełne i sycące, goryczka średnia, krtka. Przyjemna oleista tekstura, delikatnie wysycone. Przez ten alkohol przychodzi na myśl czekoladki w likierze. Trochę jest tego za dużo, nadaje się do wyleżakowania. Podsumowując, to piwo to rasowy bałtyk, świetny przedstawiciel stylu

Night_Cap (119) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - AUG 10, 2016
Bottle 330ml. Served at cellar temperature. Pours cola brown with a red tint. Head is medium sized, lightly tanned and lasts very well in the glass. Aroma is of roasted malts, toast, plums, raisins, liquorice, milk chocolate, black coffee, brown sugar and a touch of smoke and treacle. Flavour is a medium earthy hop bitterness with roasted malts, bitter black coffee, burnt raisin toast, dark chocolate, salted liquorice, prunes and some ash/smoke in the finish. Full bodied with medium carbonation, an oily texture and a long dry finish. Not my go to Baltic Porter, but very tasty all the same.

boloney (81) - Srem, POLAND - SEP 23, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2016 W aromacie typowe dla porteru kawa i czekolada, dopiero pźniej uwalnia się lekka, niezbyt nachalna alkoholowość. W smaku jak w aromacie, piwo bardzo dobrze ułożone (choć nie każda warka!), alkohol nie pali w przełyk. Charakterystyczne gwoździe z Żywca niewyczuwalne. Solidne, łatwo dostępne piwo.
