pilsnerrogge (2816) - Finspång, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2005
Colour is black as Christmas night. Pale brown, rich head. Vanilla and roasted malt aroma. Flavour is very roasted with notes of vanilla, but the thing that makes my taste buds going is the long, lingering hop bitterness. An unusual but very tasty Porter.

Pours opaque with a minimal tan head in my snifter. Malty and molasses nose. Flavor is thick. Just malts on top of malts. Feel is smooth on carbonation and good on the liquid too. Just a damn tasty RIS, which I am assuming it is without looking at the profile for it. Oops. Guessed wrong. It’s a porter! And a hearty one at that.

Bottle at RBESG Grand Tasting 05. Superb aroma - smooth choc and spice. Sweet and dry choc. Fizzy in the mouth, but full of pine cone flavour. Delicious blend of ESB and Porter.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 10, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2006 500 ml bottle. Pitch black with a slightly brown head. Vanilla Porter. Flavour is rich with black malts and vanilla. Strong aroma of vanilla sugar and roasted malts. Extremely oily texture. The vanilla infusion makes the beer smooth. Bitterness is well balanced. Quite drinkable given its richness, but a bit odd. Nothing you’d drink much of. I have not drunk this beer with food, but I would expect it to stand up nicely with against roasted meats. I would have liked to try this one cask conditioned. (6/4/7/4/14). 2006 vintage: Dark brown almost opaque. Lets through only a hint of red light. Thick creamy light brown head. Rich dark chocolate. Roasted malt. Vanilla is not really detectable in the nose as the roastedness dominates. Smooth texture and little carbonation. Mellow roasted dark coffee and chocolate flavours. Very nice and balanced. Low bitterness throughout, and only a gentle crispness in the finish. Much better than last years version. 7/5/8/4/17 (2006-11-03)

500 ml bottle conditioned seasonal christmas beer, brewed august 04, and has been conditioning in my cellar for a year. Lots of malt, tasting vanilla and chocolate. Nice and long aftertaste. One of my favourite beers.

sayravai (4708) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2005
(Bottled) Almost black color with a medium, tight and beige head. Very malty aroma with sweetish licorice, some yeast and hints of aromatic hops and unrecognizable spices. Very roasted and sweetish-malty, fruity flavor with smooth, aromatic hopping, lactic-acid feel, and a long, dryish and hoppy, lingering finish. Pretty full-bodied, creamy-silky and slicky mouthfeel with low carbonation. A very nice, spicy sweet stout.

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2007
Bottle from Capone’s. Deep brown pour with 1-finger brown head. Aroma of dark malt, vanilla, figs, plum, chocoff, jalapeno oil, blackberry, port. Tastes malty, with dark chocolate, vanilla, big coffee notes, and some ovaltine. This is a complex dry porter that goes down smoothly.
