3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours almost black with a medium sized tan head. Aroma is nutty chocolate as advertised and the taste is roasty and earthy, and very sweet. Leaves a delicious dark chocolate and yeasty aftertaste. Body is surprisingly light with an oily texture, I found it very peculiar. Nice lacing. Very enjoyable porter that reminds me of a barley wine.

Hienostunut ja tasapainoinen, ehkä hieman liian kitkerä jälkimaku, mutta hyvin hyvin nautittava.

400ml on-tap at Taphouse, Copenhagen (40 Danish Krone):
Quite a thick & creamy beer that was loaded with roasted malts & a nice earthy flavours that featured a pleasant chocolate taste; this added some sweetness to proceedings & opened things up nicely for the vanilla & caramel sweetness that followed. The beer, on the whole, was a very nice one & a good introduction as my first Finnish beer with a good balance & plenty going on to keep you interested.

Tried on Warsaw beer festival (4th edition). Roasty aroma. Very good, classical appearance. Nice taste with roasty and chocolate notes. Fine aftertaste. Such a good, normal baltic porter.

Bottle, few days after bbd. Comes with middle-sized beige head, growing after pouring. Full-bodied, intense chocolate, sweet but not ’sticky’. Great porter.
