Pours black and thick with a respectable tan head. Gives off mouth-watering aromas of chocolate, molasses, licorice and port wine. Texture is full, smooth and slightly oily with sparing carbonation. Flavor is as luscious as the nose; sweet, but not cloying due to the 7% which is hidden well. Tastes of rich semi-sweet chocolate, coffee and molasses with a slight vinous quality. Reminds me very much of Anchor or Taddy Porter, only a bit beefier. Great stuff!

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 13, 2004
Color is dark as dark can be, beneath a big, bubbly, crackling tan head. Aroma is full of cocoa, nuts, and sweet candyish flavors. Medium body, light in texture, but really tasty, rich, satisfying. The ABV is 7%, but I didn’t feel it in the least. Wait a minute...okay, now I do! Very tasty, and a welcome surprise, an excellent porter, an enjoyable beer!

1st Tasted Porter from Russia. Very impressed by its smooth taste. Roasted. Sweet ...well balanced. Very Tasty.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 10, 2004
Almost as black as can be, foam lost quickly. Sweet and fruity aroma was a surprise, somehow I waited this porter to have more bitter aroma. Very full body with fruity start. Fruitiness is cut nicely by convenient bitterness, not too dry like some "normal" porters, this is why I like this beer. Ends with warm palate and slightly sweet aftertaste. Very dimensional porter, reminds me little of our Finnish Sinebrychoff Porter.

Poured a dark oily brown that was almost black. Thick tan head. Sweet aroma, with hints of chocolate and coffee. Nice full and creamy mouthfeel. Dark chocolate, dark roasted coffee, caramel, and a bit of alcohol. This is a great baltic porter. One of my favorites.

Neutral nose. Very black, ok head. Earthy, slighly sour roasted and smoked malt flavors. Milky mouthfeel, coffee and chokolate aftertaste.

Very dark reddish brown color with a medium beige head. Slight roasted coffee and lager aroma. Slightly sweet malt and burnt coffee flavors. Thin feel, crisp carbonation.

Dark brown color with red highlights and a beige head. The aroma and flavor were sweet...burnt molasses, chocolate, burnt bread, and some caramel. The feel was slightly thin...very crisp carbonation.

Received this from a friend returning from Russia. Pours a dark greasy black witha brown foamy head. Decent aroma - lots of chocolate and hints of coffee and molasses? Taste is quite pleasant, bitter with a tingly sweetness in the finish. Overall a fantastic porter that I would like to have more of.

Right off the bat....Waaay underrated! Good stuff for sure. Deep black, creamy lasting tan head. Nose is full of golden raisins, plums, malted milk chocolate, caramel, anise, and a hint of roasted coffee. Has something about it that even says Belgian. Flavor almost matches to a T, but there is a bit of brown sugar and rum noted as well. Medium to full-bodied, silky, somewhat vinous, chocolate coffee finish. You go Russia!
