    Pours deep garnet with semi big bubbled tan head. The aroma has notes of dark fruity esters like prunes, figs and dates as well as licorice, burnt malts, some notes of earthiness and a faint hotness on the nostrils. The taste is nice with bold yet even. It delivers approachably smooth earthiness mixing with chocolate and burnt malts. Those flavors are followed by an under current of dark fruity esters that tie the taste together nicely. It ends with residual dark fruitiness but mostly roasty malts, fading earthiness and a mild sense of booziness. Very pleasing combination of notes creating a very tasty brew. Great value too.

    Pours dark chocolate with a fair buff head. Aroma gives roast malt, molasses, funky tones. Flavor presents chocolate, roast malt, wood, subtle funk. Texture features decent body and lively fizz. Beer is boss.

    I picked this beer up from Barrel Chest Wine & Beer in Roanoke, VA. This beer was slightly disappointing. For a Baltic porter, it was slightly thin. It also had a weird sweetness that I couldn't quite put my finger on. The other thing I wasn't high on with this beer was the color. It was a genuinely deep ruby. I like my Baltic porters to be black. The beer was a tad boozy too. All of that being said, it was still a solid beer. I think, however, if I were to get a Polish Baltic porter in the future, I would stick with Okocim.

    Unusual. In the mouth feels like a full flavoured beer. Swallow and tastes watered down. Looks like a black Coors Lite. Medium mouthfeel. Sweet chocolate and mild coffee flavour. Would never think it was 9.4abv. Half way down ." wheres me head and lace"

    Very rich and sweet nose consisting of whiffs of roasted dark malt candy chocolate. The sip is like drinking raw bitter chocolate beer. Very thick in mouthfeel and color is pitch black.

    Sampled on 4/21/2009. This porter pours an eclipse black color from a 500ml bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is chocolate and coffee, roasted malts and some dark fruit. A medium bodied porter. The malts are chocolate and coffee. The hops are earthy. Nice balance. Creamy smooth tasting Porter. Nice carbonation. Hides the 9.4% alcohol well. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

    Aromas of burnt coffee, and sharp dark chocolate notes. Flavors of burnt coffee, the dark chocolate and some nuttiness round out the taste. A unusual sweet flavor disappeared as it warmed, overall it was a pretty decent porter, and the price was pretty good.

    Pours a dark opaque black colour with a huge tan head. Aroma is sweet, entcing, noticeable alcohol but lots of nutty character. Palate is rich, dark fruits and burnt toast. Awesome brew.

    Pours with a frothy, somewhat large bubbled, lightly browned, full tan colored head. The beer is quite black, but does show a brilliantly clear, super concentrated, ruby-red color when held up directly to the light. Sweet, concentrated fruit aromatics are the first thing I notice about the nose; raisin, definite prunes and dried fig notes play a prominent role and surprisingly I don't get much roast malt character here in the nose. At times this smells exactly like I just cut into a fresh, perfectly rip Macintosh apple. A super fruity aroma, that I wasn't really expecting from a brew this color. If you really dig around & take multiple, successive smells of the aroma, the fruitiness disappears and you get hints of dark chocolate, toasted, deeply browned malt, brandy focused alcohol and soda cracker notes, but as soon as you take your nose away the fruitiness comes back in full force.

    This has a medium heft to it and is fairly sweet, even for the body. Quite fruity tasting, though not as much as the aroma might have suggested: flavors of prunes and dried figs play a big role here, but this time there is a slight burnt edge to these flavors. This is starting to just become oxidized, with a wisp of sherry like notes that serve to accentuate the fruit notes and add a bit of complexity here. The dark malt notes add touches of molasses, and in the finish a somewhat dry (though not enough to cut totally through the sweetness), toasted grain note, a touch of roasted / burnt malt flavors, and some burnt soda cracker flavors. Perhaps a touch of plastic character just barely mars the finish of this brew, but it is fairly subtle.

    This really hides the alcohol quite well, it even is a bit lighter feeling than I would expect from a beer of this strength. Tasty, and because of the unexpected flavors, quite interesting.

    Gotta give this one a good rating. Only my second Baltic porter, after a Utenos a couple weeks ago, and this is far superior. Poured jet black with ruby tints when back-lit, and a thin, tan head. Not too much lacing. Aroma hit strong! Caramel, bourbon(?), molasses, slight coffee notes in the scent. Great mouthfeel and taste. Flavor matches the aromas, with well-concealed alcohol. I could get in trouble in a place that offered this on draught! I'll be getting more boggles of this one.... at a buck fifty for a half-liter, can you go wrong?
