3.53/5  rDev -6.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

A: Nice thick, creamy head that takes its time to fade and leaves a nice bit of lacing. Color is a very dark amber that is only evident when held up to the light.

S: The high abv is immediately apparent, but not in a necessarily off-putting way. The alcohol fragrance is followed by an enticing, rich, malty smell (oatmeal-esque).

T: The oatmeal, malt smell is the first taste to come through. The taste ends up being dominated by toasted malts. Although the alcohol is definitely noticeable, it is not nearly as overpowering as the smell would suggest.

O: $2.73 for a pint. This is one of the cheapest pints/single servings available at my local craft beer store, but it definitely is in the top half in terms of taste. I readily admit that I'm a sucker for beers that successfully pull off having a high abv. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys porters and happens to see this in a local store.

Picked up this 9.4 ABV 500ml bottle on a recommendation from a friend who happens to work at my local imported beer store. Rarely am I disappointed with his recommendations and this beer fits the bill. Previous reviews accentuate the estery l / fruit like finish, which is no doubt present in this porter. But don't allow those descriptions to scare you away from the roasty, chocolate backbone of this outstanding beer. Perhaps a different type of yeast and this would be a top notch imperial stout. At $2.39 a pint everyone should take a shot at this fantastic Polish Porter
