3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of soy and alcohol. Slightly watery, above-average carbonation. Precise taste, might be because itís such a familiar beer. Hints of raisin, citrus and floral flavor. Great porter and great choice when in a Finnish bar -almost all the places have this, and itís cheap, as well.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2 ounce bottle thanks to drsilverworm. The beer is a dark brown to black with a khaki head of foam. Good lacing and decent retention. The aroma has licorice, ash, roast, coffee, and caramel. The taste has a bit of smoke to it, but is mostly a roasty sweetness. I get a bit of vanilla and wood character from this beer as well. There really is quite a bit going on here. Thicker, more viscous mouthfeel with tiny carbonation bubbles keeping the beer lively as it coats the tongue. Really nice stuff.
