So I have this thing against weird bottles. I'm used to the flashy American marketing campaigns and it kind of brainwashed me. So I'm going to use that as my excuse for not spending more time in the import section of my local beer store. I'm realizing more and more how wrong my preconceived notions are. On the recommendation of the Beer Guy at the Beer Store, I picked up a 500ml bottle of the Okocim Porter. He said it was good, and I trust him, so I picked it up.

Wow, was he right. Pours deliciously into my Duvel tulip. Dark, almost black beer with a pale tan foamy head on the top that slowly fades into the beer. Looks like a delicious porter in the glass.

The smells coming out of this thing are fantastic. Smoked rum and caramel, with a bit of coffee. I could smell this one all day. The taste starts out cool and milky (although a bit more watery than milk - maybe as watery as a skim milk, though) and the flavor hits you as it reaches the back of your mouth. Sugary but malty and smoky at the same time. Chocolate. Fruity too, if only a little bit at the end of the malt. Dark fruits, if any. I'm not sure I taste it every time it hits my tounge but I definitely taste it sometimes. As it warms up the chocolate and the malt come through definitely. That skim milk think I was talking about earlier is still there, just not as prominent. I think it might be the cooler beer hitting the tounge - as it warms, it lessens.

This beer is wayyy too drinkable for its alcohol content. I could drink like 5 or 6 of these right now. It's just so damn tasty. I would call it sessionable almost, except that if you sessioned with it you'd probably pass out.

Overall this is a winner. I am going to compare it to Heavyweight's Perkuno's Hammer because that was my favorite porter before this one. This one is as tasty an cheaper. Plus it isn't disappearing because Browar Okocim has definitely not gone out of business!

Definitely needs to sampled out of bottle. In bottle has the taste of cap ( metal ). Loved this beer from first , 5 years ago. Great flavor that reminds me of Guinness Stout only sweeter. Like Guinness has a thick head when poured carefully in the glass. Has become very difficult to find in Peoria area.
