Kavu (1956) - Helsinki, - JAN 30, 2013
0,5l bottle @ Vihreš Haltiatar. Pours very dark brown with a low tan head. Aroma is roasted malts with some fruits. Flavor is roasted malts, lots of coffee, some lemon and a very hoppy finish. More like black IPA than a porter. Nice.

Bottle, 11C. Dark brown with a beige head that fades to a coat. Aroma of molasses, coffee, plums, fake cherries/ nail polish. Fruity flavours rapidly overtaken by ash and burnt coffee. Didnít get any more welcoming as it warmed.

Hermod (2805) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JAN 20, 2014
33cl bottle. BB Oct 2013. Near black with almost no head, low carb. Not flat, but not far away. Lots of chocolate on the nose with roastedness and ashy, charcoal notes. Unfortunately some ugly paint notes coming later. Sniffin paint.. Flavor is much better with ash, roasted malt, dark chocolate and some spicy notes. Dry, ashy finish.

Not enough malt

Hanoi (296) - - JAN 7, 2014
Bottle: Nose is smoke, orange, blackberry and cherry with a hint of cocoa and vanilla. The fruit smells make it very fresh smelling for a porter. Taste is biscuit, malt leading to smoke and a juicy citrusy, grapefruit, pineapple hopped finish with a little lasting resin which makes it refreshing for a porter. Mouthfeel is slick. Itís decent but too much IPA for a porter.
