3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. A dark brown beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with a pretty strong roasted note. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel and roasted malt as well as a light coffee note, leading to a dry bitter and roasted finish.

(Bottle 50 cl) Courtesy of Bierkönig. Pours a clear, dark brown - almost black - with a reddish hue and a dense, creamy, beige head that leaves some lacing. Lovely aroma of licorice and coffee - and I even detect a whiff of Brett?? Fairly light in body with hard roasted malt accents and some sweetish licorice flavours. Subdued bitterness. But soft and pleasant. 120108

UPDATED: APR 10, 2003 Sampled draught at Helsinki Beer Festival.
Transparently black with off white head. Citrusy hoppy nose. Very chocolatey with loads of coffee. Dry with clean malt profile and a bitter licorice finish. A truly excellent classic porter!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Opaque black, small but steady tanned head. Coffee, roasted, chocolaty nose. Hoppy, roasted medium-bodied brew but lacks malty backbone: typical to Huvila beers. Dry, woody aftertaste.
