3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark reddish beer with a creamy huge head. Aroma is dark roasty malts with some sweetness, dark rye bread and a nice amount of hops. Taste is pleasant, but maybe just not quite on par with the aroma. Delightful hops make this different to the porters I've drank before. Smooth and pleasant. Finishes a bit quickly. All in all very good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml bottle from Alko Arkadia. Extremely dark reddish brown colour, small beige frothy head, decent lacing. Heavily malty roasty aroma of coffee and dark chocolate, moderate to heavy herbal and piney hops. Taste is initially slightly on the sweet side but more balanced than many, long moderately bitter finish with a burnt feel. Full body, lively carbonation, between oily and creamy texture. One of the more pleasant porters I tasted, though a few of the local ones have a more intense aroma. Very pleasant anyway.
