raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - AUG 23, 2008
Tap at St. Urho’s Pub. Dark deep brown black with brownish short head. Nose has roasted malts, sweetish chocolate, dark roast coffee and some musty earthiness. Flavor is perfectly roasted, only slightly bitter, sweetish, chocolate, coffee, maybe some underlying sweet liqourice. Very smooth and thick palate. Easy carb. Not a huge fan of porters, but this one is up there on the top. Not as sour as many porters from this area. Very big for it’s ABV.

TaxiDriver (1472) - Stadland, GERMANY - AUG 8, 2008
Bottle. Smell of coffee and dark chocolate, roasted malt and light toffee. Medium sized brown creamy-foamy head, long lasting. The body is black. The taste is moderate bitter, the duration is quite long. The texture is creamy and oily, the carbonation is flat and the body is full. A very nice Porter!

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 27, 2008
Bottle courtesy of reakt. Nearly black with a very small line of tan foam. Very still too. Earthy malt aroma with a subtle vanilla hint. Has a creamy, buttery taste when it hits the lips then dark chocolate malt. Extremely smooth but a bit sweet and could do with a bit more balancing bitterness. Still, a very good porter.

Draught@Kaunis Kampela, Helsinki. Very deep brown color, opaque, lasting low brown head. Sweet aroma of chocolate. Chocolaty taste with roasted malts and medium bitterness. Very smooth mouthfeel. Quite good, but somehow I liked the Foxy version better.

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2008 This one works. Everything that a good porter is supposed to be. A strong roasted malt taste with chocolate, coffee and cocoa in a good balance. Porter is available on tap in Huvila.
