Bottle. Pours opaque brown-black with a small tan head and nice lacing. Aroma is coffe, dark roasted malt and a touch of vanilla. Flavor is much the same plus dark bread and notes of chocolate. Quite sweet with a light bitter coffee finish. A bit watery on the palate.

Ontbeertaster (2269) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 6, 2014
Bottle, pours dark black, aroma was light roast, taste had a little soy sauce so it seemed like it might be a little old, but overall it was good, the stubby bottle was fun.

Eritarka (2) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 13, 2014 does not count
Pours a dark brown->black with a brownish head that fades quickly. Creamy texture with a smooth carbonation. Roasted malt, slight alcohol, hints of chocolate and a rather bitter/roasted finish. 13.03.14, after long work day, slightly too cold Edit: definitely started too cold, shows it's true potential at approximately 10-14C.

Erasmus_ro (1192) - Alabama, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Tap @ St. Urho’s, Helsinki, Portteri- & Stoutpäivät 2014. Pours dark brown, pretty much black with a deep ruby tinge. Thick, medium-sized, latte-colored head. Aroma is surprisingly light, light roast and black currant. Taste is roast, some chocolate and vanilla. Smooth. Not as roasted as you’d expect. Fair bit of salty liquorice. Light smoke. Full flavor really. Makes one want to say sophisticated, really. Light blackcurrant in the background. Quite full with quite a bit of carbonation. 2,5dl is more than enough for one person.

Hermod (2813) - Vantaa, FINLAND - FEB 13, 2014
Keg @ St.Urho’s portteripäivät. Near black, lasting creamy, brown head. Looks great. Roastedness, chocolate and oatmeal in aroma. Heavy stuff. Roasted malt, ash, licorice in flavor. Long roasted finish with dark chocolate. Full bodied. This should be enjoyed in small doses.

mjs (4277) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 12, 2014
(Keg at St. Urho’s Pub Portteri- ja Stout-päivät ’14) The beer poured almost black. Its head was small and lightly brown. Aroma had roasted malts, chocolate and hops. Palate was full bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were hops, roasted malts, chocolate, mildly coffee and medium bitterness. Aftertaste was roasty, sweet and bitter. A nice roasty brew.

teddybeer (2097) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 7, 2014
From my backlog. Shared with andregoncalves. Black colour with a light beige head, with medium lasting and light lacework. Aroma has notes of coffee beans, black chocolate and slightly licorice. Flavor is roasty, some toasty notes, slightly wooden notes blended with ashes and coconut traces joined with coffee beans. The final is strong black coffee and licorice. Creamy and dense mouthfeel.
