4.19/5  rDev +4.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: black, with very thin, tan head, that drops quickly. Poor lacing.

Aroma: very nice, coffee and roasted malts, some caramel in the back. Not intense, but very pleasant.

Taste: roastiness, coffee and malts. Rather dry. Bitterness on an average level. No alcohol aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: full bodied, medium to soft carbonation.

Overall: one of my favourite baltic porters. I like how it's dominated by roastiness instead of sweetness. It's not an "in your face" type of beer, rather one to sit with in the evening and drink one bottle for like an hour. Room temperature is this beer best friend.

Enjoyed from a snifter.

Bottle at Smocza Jama in Krakow I believe. From notes.

A - Poured black with very faint red notes when held to the light. No head, just a tiny ring of tan around the top. No lacing.

S - Great coffee and roasted malts. A little nutty. Mostly coffee. Best Polish beer aroma yet so that's saying something.

T - Alot of the same as the aroma. A little chocolate is added in there. A pleasant suprise. It's roasty with chocolate up front and then bitter with a coffee finish. It could be more aggressive with a fuller flavour, but it's good. It became sweeter and more cola-like towards the end of the bottle.

M - Nice mouth with medium body and good carbonation and a little dryness in the finish. Very soft and silky.

O/D - Nice beer. Couldn't detect alcohol, great taste and feeling. It got a little harsh towards the end but an entire bottle of this got me in a better mood. A good beer and probably the best from Poland I've had.

Pours very dark brow, almost black with creamy off white head and good retention. Aroma is simple, yet pleasant roasted malt, coffee.

Taste is dominated by bitter roasted malt and coffee, bits of vanilla and dark fruit, dry and bittery finish, alcohol can not be felt at all. Mouthfeel is medium, low carbonation.

Overall, a very good porter with significant roasted flavours.

a nice porter with a good composition that seems to go a bit lean after a while. pour looks as it should with a thick quality of bubbles. nose of coffee but not overpoweringly so. some molasses subtlities and forest berries. soft baltic essence. the feel suffers and resultingly the taste is made quite one dimensional. although suprisingly not boozy at all.
