3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle. Pours very dark brown, almost black, with a huge brown foamy head that seems to last forever. Lots of dark and sweet fruits aromas with light roasted notes and very light alcohol. Taste is strong roastiness, with some coffee and smoked flavors developing into a nice final bitterness with some coffee again. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Very good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Dark brown, average to large and mostly diminishing light brown head. Moderate to full malty and sweetish aroma, some fruitiness and light roasted malt, light spiciness (ginger, aniseed). Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish flavor, light caramel and roasted malt, light spiciness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish, faint caramel and light roasted malt, light - some spiciness with fainthoppyness. Sweetish porter with bit sharp spiciness. Spiciness reminds me of Xmas brews.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle (Stones, Helsinki)
Lovely toasty aroma. Black, persistent tight tan head. Slightly prickly carbonation, slightly thin. Super toasty roasty porter taste. A little dry hoppy finish. Simple and drinkable. Covers 7%, feels more like 5.something. Easy drinker, maybe carbonation a little too high for me. Simple and tasty. Good porter.
