3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Draught@Pikkulintu, rated 2011-11-16) Almost black, small beige head. Very strong roasted coffee in the aroma, with a touch of dark chocolate. Strangely bland flavor with lots of roast, some ashy burnedness, but most of all chocolatey coffee. Medium body, quite thin palate, almost flat CO2. Ok, but too coffeeish and thin porter.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Very dark brown - almost black, average and dense foamy and mostly diminishing light brown head. Moderate, malty - light oat and sweetish aroma, lots of coffee, roasted malt, light chocolate. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, coffee and roasted malt, light hoppyness and chocolate. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, ashy burnt - roasted malt, lots of coffee and some hoppy bitterness. Weird combination of coffee and ashy burnt/roasted malt - anyway, too much coffee for me.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Draught at Pikkulintu, 20111113) The beer poured black. Its head was light brown and dense. Aroma had coffee, roasted malts and burnt malts. Palate was full bodied and dryish with medium carbonation. Flavours were coffee, roasted malts, dark chocolate, hops, ash and bitterness. Aftertaste had coffee, roastedness and bitterness. Very good coffee porter. Extra point for palate because the flavours were spread on my tongue in a very pleasant way.
