fantti (942) - FINLAND - JAN 15, 2013
Kaatuu lasiin mustana, isokuplaisella, pilvisellä ja vaaleanruskealla vaahdolla. Haju on paahteinen, suolaisen salmiakkinen sekä lievän mausteinen ja appelsiininkuorinen. Maku on paahteinen, appelsiininkuorinen, inkiväärinen ja lievän hedelmäinen sekä havuinen. Suutuntuma on pistelevän hiilihappoinen ja havuinen. Kaiken kaikkiaan Snowman Ralph on hyvin jouluinen portteri ja mukavan kevyt, jossa allekirjoittanutta yllätti joulumausteisuus.

Miksu (5046) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - DEC 26, 2011
Draught at Old Brick’s Inn, Jyväskylä. Pitch black color with rusty head. Lots of coffee and charcoal in the aroma and flavor with salty licorice and leather. Firm but still soft bitterness. Full body yet fairly dry. Robust taste, yet drinkable and less than 6 % abv, nice.

FatPhil (14021) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 24, 2011
Tap, several times (Viisi Pennia, Helsinki)
7 Pleasantly tangy hop twist to an otherwise stright down the middle classic rich roasty modern porter - nice!
5 Black, healthy tight tan head.
7 Super rich roast, veering towards burntness, but avoiding astringency. Chocolate comes out in the mouth that didn’t in the aroma.
4- Quite sharp in the mouth, carbonation’s quite aggressive. However, the finish is very pleasantly tangy, and with metric butt-loads of roast.
14 This is porter how I like it. Cheers!
