Another Polish Baltic Porter thanks to my friend rtepiak!

A: Solid three fingers of mocha colored head. Pours dark brown/black. Retention is very good and lacing is pretty good too.

S: Like the other Polish baltic porter I had, this is very traditional in the world of porters, very far from imperial stouts baltic porter seems mixed with so frequently these days. Very strong smoky and chocolaty character, like a porter should have. Light coffee, licorice, dates, raisins. Quite weak

T: This is quite meaty. It has some sort of grilled meat kind of taste to it. Smoke is more than obvious as well as the blackcurrents, raisins, light dates. Nice amount of acidity, like all baltic porters should have. Nice chocolate and light coffee. Alcohol is present but blends perfectly with the flavors.

M: Medium to heavy feel with medium to low carbonation. Smooth and dry, like a baltic porter should be.

O: This is a really good porter that shows very nicely the traditional character of the style. Superbly balanced and very easy to drink.

Bottle at home. Pitch black with a thin beige head. Notes of roasted malts, cherries, dark chocolate, alcohol, a bit of smoke and licorice. Medium bodied, low carbonation and with a roasty bitter-sweet aftertaste.

Dark brown with just a film of brown foam. Aroma has some sweet malts, slight roastiness and hint of dark fruits. Taste starts slightly sweet and malty but finishes more bitter and roasty. Medium body and carbonation. Not bad, it's a classic baltic porter but it's not a style I enjoy too much.

Black, although the light you can see the ruby ​​reflections, Porter seems to be clear. The head of fine bubble, beige. Unfortunately it is not great and quite quickly melts.
Aroma: dark chocolate, some coffee, light, The ash roasted.
Taste: bitter chocolate mixed with coffee, there is a short note roasted, which later turns into a bitter cocoa, there is still coffee acidity.
Bitterness not very long and intense coffee chocolate. Saturation of low alcohol not perceptible.

Poured from bottle into glass, small tan colored head, so so retention, little lacing. Jet black in the glass, no light passes thru. Smells of chocolate, roasted malt, coffee and caramel. Taste initially caramel sweetness then flows into roasted malt, coffee notes, chocolate, big chocolate creamy finish. Beautiful beer that has great taste, no apparent heat coming from this, hidden well

Bottle in Warsaw. Can't remember where. From notes.

A - Poured black and opaque with no head and no lacing. Yippee!

S - Picked up some coffee and chocolate mixed together well.

T - Sweet on the tongue. Coffee and chocolate reappear with chocolate winning out slightly.

M - Medium carbonation and a medium body. Slightly dry finish.

O/D - I could have a few. Had some depth and was really nice to drink and went down smooth.

i have had a good couple of these and for the longest time have failed to put it up on BA. A personal favorite when it comes to polish baltic porters. an exceptional baltic tang that still has a rich forest dark berries quality. even after a year of aging the beer was pure black currents, blood, and smokiness malt. a very meaty collection of flavors and great combination for wild boar.

with this fresh bottle i'm have right now. i get a great pour with a distinctly smokey quality. not as acid but there is a balitic zest. molasses formost, which i must say is a bit overwhelming as the bottle ages. black currant and the bacteria quality i only find in wine of decaying vegetables. meaty like a pinot noir. smokey sour and grilled meat.

Bottle 08.08.16. Intensive bready and malt coffee aroma, chocolate and little spicy notes in background. Black coloured, clear. Beige one fingered head, reduced to flat with poor lacing. Spicy and sweet in taste, malt, coffee, slightly sour. Low bitterness passes into roasted and chocolaty aftertaste, which vanishes slowly. After short brake, bready and malty notes comes. Medium carbonation, full body, slick and creamy texture. High drinkability as for porter. Very tasty, without any unpleasant alcoholic notes, only spiciness. Best baltic porter I've tried.
