A Baltic Porter brewed by
Bracki Browar Zamkowy (Zywiec Heineken)
My Polish realtor turned me on to this one. He bought me this and a Okocim O.K. Beer and a Zywiec Jasne Pelne (Beer). I was not a fan of either of the first two so I didn’t have my hopes up for the porter – nice set up Mr. Realtor. It pours a very dark brown or nearly black. The head was just a bit tan but it fades out. The aroma wasn’t too intense but you get a nice smell going in for a sip. This porter had a strong carmel, nut and chocolate aroma. I also pick up a bit of molasses and fruit. The taste was as smooth as the smell. I would say the body was light to medium. You really don’t pick up the 9.5% alcohol. It has a rich and creamy feel on the palate with a bitter chocolate after taste. This was very solid and well balanced.
