3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brown with medium light-brown head. Heavy roasted, nutty, dark chocolate, a little of red berries, some orange hops. Medium sweetness, light to medium bitter, short finish. A milky and easy feel to it. Body is just medium, palate is almost watery, carbonation is soft. A pleasant silky and smooth one, perhaps on the thin side.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown in color with a tan head. Roasted malts, milk chocolate sweetness and cocoa powder in aroma. Sweetness, chocolate but also some bitters in taste. Sadly the sweetness is bit too much present. As a dessert in small quantities this would be okay. Lacking some character though.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 fl Oz bottle from Alko. Pours near black with a thick brown head. Looking great. Licorice candy, sweetness, milky smoothness. Roasted malt, more licorice, hops in flavor. The sweet licorice really makes this beer come alive. Long slightly dry and roasty finish. Surprisingly thin for 7%.

Mukava shakin seuralainen. Jumissa vähän, mutta hyvä tunkkainen tuntuma. Aivan käyttökelpoinen porter.

Bottle at Konttori, Tampere. Dark brown color, small beige head. Toasted, a bit chocolaty aroma. Medium-bodied. Flavor is also toasted malty and chocolaty but it has some ashy notes too. Decent strong porter.

ChrisO Tasting. Almost opaque dark brown beer, small cream colour head. Palate is smooth and semi dry, low carbonation. Tangy dry dark malts, mildly sour chocolate streak. Touch of coffee and dark fruits. Light dry finish. Coffee linger. So so from O’so.

Tap@ccc. Black darl brown, little head. Malty, slight sweet licorice, herbals, medicinal, bit herb liquory nose. Med full bodied, smooth, ok bittered. Licorice, malty syrup. Would expect more flavour for the abv though. Bit sweet oily syrupy this. Nothing too offending though..

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. A clear, dark ruby-brown porter with creamy tan head. Sweet bready and some rich caramel malt aromas, sweet chocolate sauce, ripe plums and surprisigly fresh fruitiness and perfumes hard to describe. Taste starts with pretty straightforward pale malt flavor, light caramel but vanilla fudge flavors rapidly take over. Caramel, raisin and wood flavors in the finish with dry/woody bitterness and dark chocolate. Nice balance, but a bit sweet when warm. Medium to full body, carbs are perfectly fit and counterbalance the sweetness. Very nice.
