look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a deep deep brown... almost mahogany, with ruby highlights and a generous inch of head. Huge gobs of lacing.

Sharp caramel tones in the nose. Distinct alcohol notes, and some berry is detectable.

A semi-sweet flavour, with strong nutty flavours. Some toffee and coffee in the backbone is perceptible. Some caramel comes through on the backbone. Nice.

A thick, creamy mouthfeel... exactly what I look for from a porter

Highly quaffable, especially for an 8%+ brew.... the only reason I didn't rate it a 5 is because of its sweetness. Nevertheless, far and away the best beer from this brewery, and an extremely solid example of the style.

I picked this beer up out of curiousity more than anything, and i'm sure glad i did.

It poured a beautiful deep chocolate brown with nice tan head and good lacing. Smelled pretty good, mild hints of mocha with a slight alcoholic tone. As for the taste, the best word to describe it is just.. wow.. Mocha and caramel fading to mild coffee flavors so powerful and pronounced that it's rather high ABV is not very pronounced. Mouthfeel was thick and rich, characteristic of Porters, much like a meal in a glass. This is a very very drinkable brew, and can hit you VERY hard if you're not careful.

Overall, this is an absolutely wonderful brew i would recommend to pretty much everybody.

Listed as being 8.3% ABV on the bottle.

The first time I had this beer, I picked it up on a whim. "Ah ha! Something I've never tried before" (purchased at the same time as a Kaiserdom Rauchbier...note to self: "Not a Morning-After beer"). I remember it vividly...I was hanging at Mike's house, well into the evening, already quite buzzed on the Sam Adams Dopplebock we picked up at the Big 10...and there I was drunkedly mimicking Billy Corgans incescent whine of "Despite all the rage, I'm still just a rat in a cage" into my toothbrush. When I cracked it open and tasted it, it was like I was opening a door to something new and exciting. I had never taste anything like this. "This isn't a porter! What the heck is this?" I remember the bottle seeming to have some ornamental silver foil on the neck, kinda like a S.Smith with a hefty parcel of glass. If there's any one beer to be drunk in a pewter stein, this is it. It's been at least 10 years since I've had it, and I've pined for it ever since, especially after finding it no longer in production for a while. This, my friends, is THE baltic porter of my memories. Filled to the hilt with prunes, rum, dates, raisins, milk chocolate and vinous, thick amber malts. Read the other reviews to get an idea of what it's like. It's like a favorite album...you share it with your closest friends and just *hope* they get it. This beer has a nostalgic sense of purpose to me and takes me back to celebrating my 21st with my best friend Mike Massie, walking in a midnight daze, scoring a 6'er of Anchor Porter in downtown Ann Arbor...Anupum and Mike proudly finger-banging in the room next door while I stayed up late watching "Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer 2" (an absolutely horrible sequel by any means) on Skinemax ...I can't say what it will do for you, but I would encourage you to enjoy it and share it in the company of your closest friends.

I'm glad it's back.

Color is a seemingly deceptive black but tends to keep a dark brown like that of a brown beer bottle. Up to the light it gets a shadowed bloody reddish black. Cool and creepy. Great soft, creamy, and bubbly froth of mediumish size and is cocoa colored. Fades slowly to keep a good amount of its stature always present and the lacing coats the glass like thin frosting. Beautiful!

Aroma is clean, darkly sweet, and lightly roasted as dark fruits make up the toppings with plum, date, banana skins, over ripe pear, and raisin and is drizzled in a caramel, chocolate/cocoa waffer-like dusting over the fruityness.

Taste is well established in malty dark fruityness while maintaining a great chocolatey richness. Right from the get go it begins to unveil its velvety structure with warming chocolate and caramel that sit aside some very nice creamy banana. Tender little hints to pale figs, fresh dates, and smashed raisins make the edges. Dark toffee creates a nice swipe through the middle as it totally fills in with more, darker chocolate and a touch of iced coffee as it finishes slow and gradual. A wondeful finisher. Lots of left over flavors of the dark fruits mix intriguingly well with the chocolate tones. A lavishly yummy treat to behold.

Mouthfeel is quite nice. Not too heavy set nor extremely thick. Velvety smoothness and silky richness is the setting stage. Letting it crawl slowly out over your palate as the flavors take to the play in full garb with the nice little toasty/roasty hints within the caramel, toffee, and chocolate. Has about a medium-full body with a delicate texture that grows as it warms. Wow, what a ride! And gone before you know it. The bigger 500ml bottle doesn't last as it should. Quite drinkable, and thusly so by leaps and bounds. One to stock up on, keep around, drink lots of, whatever. Great stuff!

Another big thanks to northyorksammy for the trade!

This brew pours a solid, opaque black color. the head is large, fluffy, tan, and dissipates slowly leaving good lacing. The aroma is of cream, butter, toffee, with roasted malt lying underneath. The taste is of toffee and cream with burnt malt. The mouthfeel is slightly thincker than medium bodied, with low carbonation. Overall, this is a very good beer; difinately something to keep you warm on a winters night.

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black porter with a medium dark head with pretty good retention. Aroma of rich chocolate with some roasted malt. Taste is sweeter then I remembered (I had this last time about 7-8 years ago) with lots of chocolate flavour. Very little bitterness or hops are noticeable and alcohol is well hidden. Rich creamy body make this quite enjoyable overall.

Appearance: Pours a fudgy brown color with some ruby highlights and a thick, creamy tan head that leaves a bit of lacing behind

Smell: Predominately dark fruits and chocolate with a sweet vinous undertone

Taste: Lovely chocolate and dark fruit flavor with some caramel sweetness that builds by mid palate and reaches a crescendo with the alcoholic warmth that appears at the finish; there is also a burst of roasty bitterness at the end that keeps it from getting too sweet

Mouthfeel: Full-bodied with a decent level of carbonation

Drinkability: Absolutely wonderful with none of the phenolic off flavors I sometimes get with other Baltic porters

Poured a rich, roasty brown, with amber edges when held to the light. A thick, clumpy head forms quickly, and fades almost as quickly, not even leaving a ring.

Smells of roasted grains and grapefruits, an almost sooty smell.

Tastes of dark malts, and lots of roast and some smoke. A very faint finish of plums and tartness, with a milky semisweet wash.

Mouthfeel is big, prickly, chewy, and carbonated. Leaves your mouth feeling sweet and smoky.

The lactose leaves a sweet film on your mouth, and the hops a slight prickliness. A hearty beer, for sure. Great with charred meat on a cold day.

Wow. This is good stuff. Pours an inky black into my pint glass, and good lacing with a tightly compacted head. Aroma is slight cocoa with more coffee tones going on. Taste is sweetened coffee predominately, but wtih some chocolate notes included. Mouthfeel could stand to be thicker and less carbonated. This is a great beer, and one of the best I've had in a long time.

PIcked up a 500ml bottle at the Come Back In here in Madison last night celebrating my roommate's 21st birthday. $2 micro bottle night....gotta love it.

Pours a thick dark brown/black with a couple fingers of coffee brown head and big black chunks of yeast settled at the bottom. Nose is robust with toasty barley malts, rich coffee, creamy dark chocolate and hints of anise and ripe dark fruit puree. Taste reminded me of a refined cross between the Baltika 6 Porter and Black Boss Porter - taking the grainy barley malts of the former and the prune, raisin, fig, and anise of the latter with a hearty smattering of chocolatey coffee. Mouthfeel is thick and gets chunky with the last few sips. This was a tasty baltic porter, up there with the Sinebrychoff.

The beer poured into the glass blackish brown with a low, tan, and persistent head which laced the glass from top to bottom.

The aroma was fruity with a very nice chocolate and slightly winey character. The fruit combined with the malt gave a cherry impression. Also the aroma contained a slight bit of roastiness.

The flavor was chocolate with a slight licorice which coupled with the malt reminded me of horehound candy. The flavor had a bit of roastiness and definite fruitiness with chocolate and coffee flavors and raisins.

The finish was nice with chocolate and a light fruitiness lasting long with that same horehound impression into the aftertaste. Teh body was medium full and well done. Nice to see this beer back, this was my first sighting of it.

16.9 ounce bottle at The Brickskeller in DC. Bottle said 8.35% ABV.

500ml bottle finally found at my local packie.

Pours a deep black with a thick tan head. Lacing and retention are impressive.
Smell is slightly smokey, roasted character, chocolate, and loads of dark fruits (figs, dates, raisins, etc.).
Taste is dark and bakers chocolate, a hint of smoke (which while I normally do not care for, I think works REALLY well in this beer), some roasted malt, and a lot of fruitiness. All of this is balanced out exceptionally well by a fine hop character that makes this one go down oh so easy.
Mouthfeel is perfect, coats the palate, and doesn't overwhelm.
Overall, an exceptional beer. Well worth the hype that this one gets. I need to make my way back to the store for more.

Poured from the glass into an imperial pint glass. Didn’t notice any born on or freshness dating. Color was a very dark brown/black. Not opaque, you could see a bit of light and red hues through the bottom of the glass. Good deal of initial carbonation within the body of the beer and the fluffy tan head. Fell down quickly, but left nice lacing behind.

Dark roasted malts, molasses, and brown sugar aromas

Man, there is a full range of flavors playing out in this beer. The malts are representin’, with dark roasted, caramel, molasses, and brown sugar. But you also have some smokey accents, chocolate, and just a hint every now and then of something bitter and some dark fruites. Regardless, you don’t need to worry about cloying sweetness. This just tingles the tongue and goes down.

Mouthfeel and Drinkability were both high. It was sugary sweet, smoky, and bitter all at the same time. Additionally, you had an oily texture that went smooth and quick with a tingly carbonation. One of the few beers I’ve had lately that lived up to the preceding hype.

What a great beer. Definitely lived up to the hype. Pours to a very dark, completely opaque black with a thin and wispy white head, which quickly recedes to a film. Leaves a thin spotty lacing behind as the viscous liquid oozes back down to water level after each tip of the glass.

The smell is good, but not a strong point. I admit, at this point I was worried for a second that this beer might not be what it was hyped up to be. Smells like alcohol and soy sauce, but backed up with enough malty aroma to keep it from being unpleasant.

The taste is a bit smokey, combined with a range of malt flavors ranging from very light roast flavor to chocolate and caramel, earthy fruits, prunes, etc. The beer has a lingering sweetness to it, almost like a piece of candy. Very well done. No flavors are overwhelming, yet this beer is still extremely rich and smooth, and bursting with great taste.

The mouthfeel is very viscous and oily with a big body, and as I mentioned earlier, a brilliant sweetness. Not too overwhelming, but the alcohol can be detected through a dryness over the tongue. No noticeable hop bitterness or flavor. Very highly drinkable for such a robust, high proof beer.

My first Baltic Porter and my 300th review!

The label looks awesome, the tan/brown color scheme is great. The beer is black with striking ruby glints. Figs, chocolate, espresso and a medicinal alcohol show in the aroma. The taste is a sweet and malty mix of caramel, dark fruit, Irish Cream, chocolate, condensed milk and a coffee beans. Hops are negligable. The finish is long and malty with a spicy alcohol flavor and roast bitterness. The mouthfeel is slightly syrupy with subtle creamy carbonation.

I cant believe I found this at the LCBO, and for only 2.40 CDN a bottle. Very tastey and complex. Its like a cross between a stout and a doppelbock. Ill be coming back to this again.

Note: my bottle said 8.3 ABV

Appearence: Pours a deep, dark mahogany with a reddish ruby tint. Perfectly clear (from what I can tell). The head is beige, decent sized, a dies down to a collar.

Smell: Perfect. Chocolate cordials mixed with roasted nuts and some wine-type qualites, wrapped in cherries and berries. Complex, balanced, wonderful smell.

Taste and Mouthfeel: The balance is unreal. Complexity is through the roof (berries, fruits, nuts, roasted notes, chocolate, coffee, caramel, and so much more), but still maintains perfect balance. The flavors are strong and very good tasting. The mouthfeel is smooth and a bit bubbly.

Drinkability and Overall: An excellent Baltic Porter. The balance is untouchable, and while it tastes fabulous, I don't know how many more I could have of these. Either way, this one is quite hyped, and it's worth it.

Pours a deep brown with a white head that settles to a thick collar of foam. The aroma is wonderful, with cocoa, rum, a bit of licorice, a hit of prunes and raisins. The taste is at first sweet with an anise-like dryness towards the finish which is long, lactic, more bitter and drier than I expected. The warmth of alcohol is noticeable in the finish. The mouthfeel is quite luxurious, the body is full, but at no point is this beer cloying. The slight lactic finish is particularly interesting in this beer and I enjoy it very much. This bottle seems very fresh with bright bitterness in the finish. I would to pick up some of this and let it mature a little more in the bottle and see what happens.
It was good to find this beer on the shelf again in time for winter.

A strong, robust and creamy Baltic Porter. The pour showed a dark cloudy rubby color with a creamy tanish colored head. The smell was of dark chocolate. Some fruitiness in there as well that seems to mix in with a slight alcohol scent.
The taste was a rush of flavors very sweet with a hint of chocolate in there. Very sweet malt flavors and a tartness as well possible coffee taste to. It was for sure smokey in the aftertaste and slightly tart/sour. A nice dry finish with a lingering sweet tounge. A very creamy smooth and full flavored beer.

The milky foam of a porter over a chocolate body is always pleasing. This brew had a sizeable head, but it dissipated in under a minute. The odor promised chocolate, with some fruitiness, and alcohol. Yep. The label of my 500 mL bottle says 8.3 % abv. There is alcohol in there. The butterscotchy sweet taste was a little overwhleming, but there were moments where I got chocolate liquor. There was little bitterness, and the last taste I detected was the alcohol. The beer had a nice body to it -- creamy velvet in the mouth. Because of the sweetness, I'm having a tough time finishing this 500 mL. I like sweet beers, but this one is unbalanced in some way. I wouldn't kick it out of my fridge, but if I were given the choice, I'd pick another porter (probably Anchor).

Dark reddish brown with a light brown head that left lace along the sides of the glass. Dense malt aroma, the smell of toasted base malt is intense, giving the porter a scent reminiscent of barley wine. There is an underlying blanket of roasted malt there too, like mild coffee and dark chocolate. The flavor is sweet malt and roasted malt with balance coming from the black malt bitterness. This beer doesn’t give any hint of 8%. The sweetness in the flavor gives plenty of body, but the density of the flavor goes beyond that with a nice lingering roasted chocolate flavor. This is my first true Baltic Porter, but it will bring me back for more that is sure. An excellent beer.

Presentation: 500ml Half Litre real drinker’s bottle. Black colored crown cap imprinted with the Okocim logo in red, white and gold. Similar colored label, not quite the same as the BA avatar but close enough for identification purposes. Listed at 8.3% (not 8.1% as listed here on BA). No freshness date but Best Before the invasion of Czechoslovakia.

Appearance: Rich thick dark brown, polished mahogany body hewn from a single tree trunk. Pale tan head, soft creamy texture, firm presence. Solid carbonation

Nose: Punctuating nose, bold, thick and unforgiving. Vinous malts and crushed raisins punch the living daylights out of the quieter prunes, liquorices and burnt brown sugars. Light toffee and string caramel. Lovely.

Taste: A lovely thick crushed velvet pair of dark malt curtains open and entrance a brown sugar toffee middle. Alcohol and dark fruits blend in the back end and prevent this from being a sick sweet sickly mess, far from it in fact, it soon develops a toasty rich mature profile. Builds in complexity as it warms. Hints of coffee and dark chocolate too as it mellows to a room temperature brew – drink to cold or warm!?!? My recommendation would be to do both, crack it chilled and (try very hard) not to drink it all at once and sample this as it warms. A real treat.

Mouthfeel: Big, bold and beautiful. Stout like with Scotch undertones. Rich and toasty, not heavy or even thick, but like a good dark Chocolate – it impresses and projects body. Solid.

Drinkability: Damn if the Half Litre didn’t disappear in double quick time, where the heck did it go so quickly??

Overall: Oh my….oh my, oh my…this one raised a real big happy contemplative reflective smile tonight; it was a hard one to put down in more ways than one. The first time I ever tried this magnificent brew was at the Polish Club in Bradford (on Edmund Street), West Yorkshire, England. My then girlfriend Angie, her Dad and his girlfriend stumbled into the Polish Club one Sunday afternoon with me in tow after we had all sampled a few Real Ales at the New Beehive and one or two other of Bradford’s Free Houses. This was followed by a seriously “Bloody Hellfire” Curry at the now infamous International on the nearby Morley Street….somehow we parked near the Polish Club but we needed more thirst quenching, and Angie stormed into the Polish Club right past the “private club” sign, but sure enough her good looks and charm soon had us welcomed inside as “honorary Sunday members” with open arms. We ended up drinking all kinds of Polish beverages rarely seen in the UK that afternoon, including the oh so memorable Okocim Porter, which literally knocked my socks off then. It did tonight too. Oh happy times, happy memories…. A great Porter indeed, glad to see it back in the fold…..$2.39…..serious VFM….Value for Money.

Highly Recommended!

Pours with a frothy light brown head that sits atop an opaque black beer, that shows a brilliantly clear brown when tipped and put up to the light. The aroma is concentrated and malty with notes of alcohol, espresso, concentrated malt extract, dark chocolate, and burnt raisins. The beer is quite sweet up front with a burnt roasted note throughout as well. The roast flavors don’t quite balance the initial sweetness though. In some ways it tastes like an over-sweetened cup of espresso, lots of sugar and bitter burnt flavors. It is still tasty, just not as well balanced as I would hope. What is lacking here is a thicker body, this is fairly thin for the style, and with the sweetness verges on becoming a bit cloyingly thin. What has happened to this beer?

It had been several years since my last Okocim Porter. Apparently their distribution network excluded the USA for some time and all I had going for me was a distant memory of a great beer that once helped awaken me to the world of possibilities great beer had to offer.

When I heard that Okocim Porter was back in the good old U.S. of A, I couldn’t wait to see if this rich Baltic porter lived up to the image of perfection I’d assigned to it in memory. Unfortunately, my bottle was probably a bit fatigued and the flavor just didn’t hit all the high notes as I’m sure it should have. There may be several reasons for this aside from sitting too long on the shelf at John’s Market. One is that the bottle isn’t bottle conditioned so the beer isn’t working while it’s waiting. The other is that they’ve obviously modified the recipe since reintroducing it to the American market, as the ABV on the new label says 8.3% while my old bottle from ’03 or so still says 8.1%. Another hunch is the possibility that the beer is now pasteurized.

Was something lost along the way? Hard to say, though it does appear that the higher ratings for this beer trend towards the pre-2005 era. As for my revisitation, I noted a taste like toffee and coca-cola with a splash of molasses. The body was bottomless brown with a camelhair head and dilute phenolic fragrance with a hint of coffee and sugar. I’m not giving up on this beer, but my recent reacquaintance was a bit of a let down.

By the way, Okocim has absolutely the coolest website of any brewery I’ve ever seen. Check it out.

From a 500 ml bottle. Dark cola brown, near black with a dense head of chocolate like black foam. Aromas are all dark roasted patent malts, a bit of chocolate, coffee, and caramel, and some nice hops in the mix as well. Taste is roasty, with chocolate and coffee notes as well as some greenish hops and some nice caramel sweetness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and quite nice. Drinkability is damn good. I'm glad this is back, makes me proud to be Polish, and at $2 a 500ml bottle this is a bargain as well!

The beer poured a deep black color with brown hints around the bottom of the glass. It had a smallish khaki head that receded to a thin film with little lacing. I may not have been aggressive enough with the pour.

The aroma was that of dark chocolate.

The taste was truly wonderful—dark chocolate, coffee, raisins/prunes, and just a bit of alcoholic spiciness.

The mouthfeel of the beer was good. It had a medium body, a moderate level of carbonation, and felt a bit oily.

The drinkablity of this stuff is excellent. The alcohol is very well hidden and the taste keeps you coming back for more.
